Robin's Cruise (Chainsaw)

You would not recognise me now After all those years on the island Though my heart is hot with love My skin turned into dry parchment My body feels like a block of lime A curious map of scars and creases No one could read and make sense of me Robin - a half-baked host of the reef chorus: I'm alive - a one-man island Stranded alone on the margins of life Whatever happens don't try to save me I have forsaken the meaning of time Exposed to the blazing sun of the reef I found consolation in awkward prayers With memory consumed by salt and heat I could not picture a human Jesus One day I spotted an advancing sail But went to great lengths not to be seen I thought the world was peopled by fools With souls diseased with imperial greed chorus: I'm alive - a one-man island Stranded alone on the margins of life Whatever happens don't try to save me I have forsaken the meaning of time I'm alive, a single island Charmed by the speechless songs of the sea I'd rather die in my bedding of sand The starry heavens shine only for me
