  • I'm just a big dud
    Foolish from the start
    I make a wrong move
    And the world just falls apart

    And there's no cure for this disease
    I'm making up, so whats the fuss

    I live inside this
    Head, and I'm at war
    Hero and villain
    Same type, keeping score

    And I'm not sure what I'm to do
    Inside these walls, not anymore

    With my own life

    Get off the island
    And swim back to shore
    Girl, I don't think I could last here one second longer
    'Cause in these waters, I'm done for

    Now give me one good reason to stay here at all
    When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small
    Where's my life saver
    When I'm screaming danger

    I'm screaming danger

    Get off the island
    And swim back to shore

    I'm just a victim
    Of unfortunate circumstance
    And this was my choice
    So shit, well I'll be damned

    And I got to stop dwelling on
    What I could have had
    All the times I could of-
    Oh I just want to-

    Get off the island
    And swim back to shore
    Girl, I don't think I could last here one second longer
    'Cause in these waters, I'm done for

    Now give me one good reason to stay here at all
    When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small
    Where's my life saver
    When I'm screaming danger

    I just can't' stay here any longer, help
    I just can't stay here any longer, help
    I just can't

    (Get off the island) and maybe, one day
    (Get me off the island) from your sand I'll float away
    (Get me off the island) and never see you around again
    (Get me off the island) island

    (Get me off the island) get of the

    Get off the island
    And swim back to shore
    Girl, I don't think I could last here one second longer
    'Cause in these waters, I'm done for

    Now give me one good reason to stay here at all
    When the fee is too big, our apartment's too small

    Where's my life saver
    When I'm screaming danger
    Where's my life saver
    When I'm screaming danger
    Where's my life saver
    When I'm screaming danger

    I'm screaming danger
    Screaming danger
    Screaming danger (get me off the island) Writer/s: Claudio Sanchez
