This Island Lyrics

I met the King of England once but the guys in the deli back home they don't believe me.
I ride my bike all around, 'round my hometown where nobody knows me.

Yeah they say that the problem is mine and I should take
Take a more positive line on the situation, when solutions are staring me right in the
Face it we've run out of time
But if I do what you'd say everything would be fine

Well
No thanks I'd rather sit here and die on this island
Can't you see that I need this to end, the end.
No thanks I'd rather sit here and die on this island
Can't you see that I need this to end, the end.

I had a dream about a song. It was so strong.
It made all the rights wrong
But when to write it all down. Capture the sound.
You won't believe what I found.

Yeah it all turned out bad, mad and sad when I played it,
it sounded like more like a fad that had lasted
a little too long than it had and I realized
that this was as good as it got.
There's no snowmen in hell cause it's too fuckin hot so

No thanks I'd rather sit here and die on this island
Can't you see that I need this to end, the end.
No thanks I'd rather sit here and die on this island
Can't you see that I need this to end, the end.

Yeah I thought that I knew who I was what did I know
of nothing or all the above did I mention
those hip new ideas I got from you last week
they sucked all the life out of life in a heartbeat
and ripped mine right out of my chest
and the kids saw right through
but you already knew that was true since
you tried it the first time in 1989 when
you were the one in my shoes and some asshole
like you told you what you should do when you do what
you do and you had to do it how he wanted you to
have you learned how to live with regret yet

I can't keep these these things in my head
If I turn out like you I will wish I was dead

No thanks I'd rather sit here and die on this island ...
