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.
