Track Name: An Island
You were born upon an island
From which no one journeyed far
You decided you weren't like them
You decided to get off

You asked the elders for permission
They said, "We taught you to swim son,
But there's a foot upon your shoulder
And there's no hand to help you up"

You were born upon an island
From which no one journeyed far
The bridges built are old and rotten
They're to dangerous to cross

You begged the boatman to give you passage
He said he'd never seen the wind fill a sail
The ocean stretched to the horizon
You'd rather be lost to the sea than stay ashore and fail

You were born upon an island
From which no one journeyed far
You decided you weren't like them
You decided to get off

Long live the island
Forever on the island

We'll draw a map
We'll send it home
We'll let them know
They're not alone
Because we were there
We can hear your prayer
The yellow brick road
Glitters and it's gold
These traditions are getting old
It's time to leave
It's time to leave one and all

You were born upon an island
From which no one journeyed far
You decided you weren't like them
You decided to get off

Long live the island
Forever on the island

We decided we weren't like them
We decided to get off.
