I have an island a place I go to think

where the artificial stars help suspend my disbelief

so I stick 'em up there one by one

make a constellation that reminds me of home


And there's so many ways to fade across a sea

paddling a boat or swimming underneath


Forget how to dream that's what she said

standin' on the corner of her soapbox ledge

and they were so cinematic the words that she spoke

they burned on the page right up into smoke

but you can go anywhere when you're somebody else

as the panic set in that's what I told myself


There's so many ways to fade across a sea

paddling a boat or swimming underneath

and I have an island under my feet lifting me up right before I sink


There's little signs of life everywhere

that's what he screamed waving his arms in the air

and then he fell to his knees he ceased to breathe

someone called a doctor another called a priest

but his aries heart it failed to start

but people gathered round just to say they did their part


And there's so many ways to fade across a sea

paddling a boat or swimming underneath

and I have an island under my feet lifting me up right before I sink
