Length 3:53
Written By Coheed And Cambria
Produced By Jay Joyce

Followed By Colors

Island is the second song from Coheed and Cambria's 2015 album The Color Before the Sun.

Like the rest of the tracks on this album, this song exists outside of The Amory Wars canon. The lyrics describe singer Claudio Sanchez questioning his identity and the identity of the band, and falling out of a comfort zone. Sanchez describes writing Island, "I started to question what life would be like if I didn’t have Coheed and Cambria, and all the preconceived ideas of what the band is supposed to create. I felt free to do whatever I wanted, and that’s essentially what the theme of this song is. It’s about turning the clock back to a less tampered sort of me, and one that doesn’t feel like he’s in a box but rather is free to explore whatever he wants."

Lyrics Edit

I’m just a toy waiting for you to play me I wanna make, just make you happy There's no future I see with you in it I just don't fit, not the right plastic

Oh ooh ooh a ooh ooh oh oh Oh, I’m not mad, lean on me, man Oh ooh ooh a ooh ooh oh oh Oh, I’m not mad, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not

How many times I got to listen to your mouth go How many times, how many times, how many times?

Turn the clocks back to the way things were I never wanted to be this me Erase, eraser Show me back then the kid before the man I don't think this me is who I am

Oh Middle age come bring me a crisis What am I worth, does the truth hurt? Identity rides the tails of disaster Ease on the clutch, who gives a fuck?

Turn the clocks back to the way things were I never wanted to be this me Erase, eraser Show me back then the kid before the man I don't think this me is who I am

Ha, Ha, Ha!

Turn the clocks back to the way things were I never wanted to be this, and I never wanted to be this I never wanted to be this me
