LYRICS

Coheed and Cambria “Island” Lyrics

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 what’s the fuss

I live inside this head and I’m at war
Hero and villain, same time 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 lifesaver, when I’m screaming danger?

I’m screaming danger
Get off the island and swim back to shore

I’m just victim of unfortunate circumstance
And this was my choice
So, shit, well I’ll be damned

And I’ve got to stop dwelling on what I could have had
All the times I could have-
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 lifesaver, when I’m screaming danger?

I’m screaming danger
Get off the island and swim back to shore

I just can’t stay here any longer, help
I just can’t stay here any longer, help
I just can’t
And maybe one day
From your sand I’ll turn away
And never see you again
Island

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 lifesaver, when I’m screaming danger?

I’m screaming danger
Get off the island and swim back to shore

Where’s my lifesaver, when I’m screaming danger
Where’s my lifesaver, when I’m screaming danger
I’m screaming danger
Screaming danger
Screaming danger

Coheed and Cambria “Island” Music Video Behind-The-Scenes

In an interview with People, frontman Claudio Sanchez talked about how his wife and their relationship inspired the music video:

When I think of these two iconic characters, I think of opposite attraction. I think of myself and my wife. How two opposite ends of a spectrum can create harmony and balance. In one way or another, these characters have been paired up with like-minded love interests, the Bat and the Cat [Batman and Catwoman] … The Alien and the Amazonian [Superman and Superwoman]… I wanted to bring the Dark and the Light together.

The entertaining clip takes us into the daily life of a Batman costumed character as he goes about his day amusing people in Times Square, New York. SPOILER ALERT: The clip takes a turn when the two go at it (and we really mean go at it). If you’ve ever noticed unintentional homo-erotic vibes from a movie, it’s pretty funny to see them when they’re 100% intentional.

It’s worth noting that this music video has no official connection with the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be released in movie theaters around the world later this month… Ben Affleck definitely has a tough act to follow.

Previous music videos the band has shared from the album are “Here To Mars” and “You Got Spirit, Kid.”

The Color Before The Sun is currently available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the full album for free here on Zumic.
