islands lyrics – oingo boingo

islands in the sea are so much like me
they don’t ever change, no emotion, no emotion
islands on the land, dry like desert sand
islands in the city, all alone it’s such a pity

it’s masquerade
just painted faces
when will it change

islands in the seas, what’s come over me
we are both surrounded by the water, empty water
give me mystery and the fear it brings
anything at all to break up the monotony

it’s masquerade
just painted faces
when will it change
never

islands in the sea are so much like me
but they don’t ever change, no emotion, no emotion
islands on the land, dry like desert sand
islands in the city, all alone it’s such a pity

islands in the sea
islands in the sea
islands in the sea
islands in the sea

forever, islands in the sea
forever, islands in the sea
forever, islands in the sea
