lyrics

When I look on the crashing waves
I think how they’ve made us slaves
we’re just living out today
on the compost of yesterday

the barons they love to play
on the backs of the underpaid
at least that’s what we used to say
on the top of the heap today

The sun goes down
on this sleepy seaside town
and the surf is singing me to sleep tonight
the wind and rain
won’t bother me again
til I wake up knowing everything's alright

Now I’m back to the island way
I traded my car away
for a bike and a boat today
on this island I’ll pass away

The sun goes down
on this sleepy seaside town
and the surf is singing me to sleep tonight
the wind and rain
won’t bother me again
til I wake up knowing everything's alright


One small step
toward the limits
toward the limits

Could we build
everything we love
right here
