out on the island

Out on the Island

Sit here alone most nights,

fighting with myself,

Cheating on the mirror,

‘Cos I can’t blame no-one else,

And these endless conversations,

That go on inside my head,

Go round and round so many times,

Till nothing quite makes sense.

Out on the island –

Don’t have to fight the contradictions,

And out on the island,

Even the victim ends up winning.

Long distance operator,

Please connect me to the mainland,

There’s someone there,

I hope I might understand,

I don’t have a ticket out here,

Just enough determination,

To keep myself from dying inside,

Till I reach Wonderland.
