Island of Doom

  • Destiny made her way and found you in a room
    They told me, they told me
    To undo the rule of mind and body
    And nature laughed away as their voices grew
    They told me, they told me
    Clean out the room and bury the body

    But I know you with a heartbeat
    So how does the night feel?
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    But now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
    But now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone

    I haven't walked for days though I wanted to
    You told me, you told me
    For with every move, the feeling follows
    In nature's empty face, I am of little use
    You told me, you told me
    I'm just another fool for the earth to swallow

    But the road through most will lead you back
    And I will be with you
    For the road of your mind will eat you up
    On your island of doom
    Where the voices all have gathered up
    To a choir of fools
    But I know my mind will reach you there
    And I will be with you

    Oh, I know you with a heartbeat
    So how does the night feel?
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    And now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
    And now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
    Why'd you wake me up today?
    Why'd you wake me up today?
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
