lyrics

MY OWN PRIVATE ALASKA - I am an Island
------------------------------------------------

Some people are sick, and other people pay to see.
The same starving children are singing for the president.
Some people are sad, and hang themselves on Christmas trees.
It’s time to answer by chaos
Have you seen the TV ? Have you seen it well ?
Have you read the news ? Do you know by heart ?
Did you know a man killed his own family ?
Have you seen what I don’t wanna see ?
No hope for some change to come
No truth to learn, just learn to lie
If I don’t kill myself, it’s cause I’ve already left
Elsewhere, anywhere, nowhere

I am an Island

Everybody hurts, and everybody cries
It’s not a song, it’s just fucking reality
Have you felt the tears you would like to lick ?
You’d like to fuck cause your fucking sexual life is dead
Would you like to rape ? Would you like to steal ?
Would you like to kill the guy who tells you what to to ?
Do you know the anger ? Do you know the hatred ?
Did you know the USA maintain the embargo ?
Nothing will change until we die
Have you seen the poles ? Have you seen Kyoto ?
Not even you can ever change
Have you seen their fate ? Have you seen...

I am an Island

That many have departed
Even me

My own private Alaska

I am an Island
