If Only Man Were An Island
Oh if only man were an island;
Tall coconut trees and white sand,
A sublime undiscovered paradise
Secluded from Fate's deadly dice.

That's the place where I'd go,
Become a new age Robinson Crusoe
And live far away from the whole,
A solitary existence in my soul.

I'd be my own type of man,
No one else to spoil that plan,
Telling me how I should be,
Safe in the comfort of being me.

And far away from humankind
I'd be perfect, a cleansed mind.
No more tortured souls to hold tight,
Cry out tears of their pain at night.

But islands like that don't exist,
Poisoned lips had barely even kissed
Before my dreams withered and died;
Between two shores there is no divide.
Author's Notes:
Uh ya, not much to say really, nothing actually, heh :)
