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

This song exists outside of The Amory Wars canon, and instead deals with singer Claudio Sanchez's struggles with living in a small apartment in New York with his wife. At the beginning, a recording can be heard of the Q train going between Brooklyn and Manhattan, which Claudio rode on frequently during that time. Speaking of the song, Claudio explains, "And it’s basically a song to my wife, saying that she needed to hear me and understand that it wasn’t working for me. I needed to leave and get back to the country, and that’s essentially what Island is about – just the apartment being too small, and the exposure being too much for me."

Lyrics Edit

Get off the Island

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 it's a farce

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 even last 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, oh shit, well I'll be damned And I got to stop dwelling on what I could have had Oh the times I could have, oh I just want to

Get of the island and swim back to shore Girl, I don't think I could last even 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 From your sand I'll float away And never see you again Island

Get off the, get off the island and swim back to shore Girl, I don't think I could last even 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 off the island
