lyrics

When all the answers are coming through
We have to make a point to pick and choose
As the data accrues, we don't know quite what's true
And I don't really know what to do

And yeah I'm trying to work out life
Just like everybody else alive
But all that we've found, is the world is quite round
We keep on covering the same old ground

And man I'm not really sure how to live life
I'm afraid I'm not doing things right

And we've been running now for a long time
And when you run we all run by your side

'Cause no man is an island
No sea is that great
And no man can comprehend
Everything he breaks

No man is an island
No sea is that great
And no man can understand
Everything he's made

We dance and the world turns
We sing all the words we learn
While all of our earnings and yearnings are burning
And burning away in time

And though the fire surrounds us
Sometimes we get up
And sometimes we're crawling, but mostly we're falling
And I don't know if we can fly

We're just trying to live my love
So when they write the book they can fill the chapters up

And we've been running now for a long time
And when you run, love, I'll be by your side

'Cause no man is an island
No sea is that great
And no man can comprehend
Everything he breaks

No man is an island
No sea is that great
And no man can understand
Everything he's made

But when I see mankind
Give up our time
To help fellow man,
Not for oil and wine

When I see mankind
Give up our spite
And turn from
needless sacrifice
I think maybe
We've been flying
All this time
