Isle of the Sky | Ilse Wanten

the life they want us to lead

the air they want us to breath

the food they want us to eat

the blood… they want us to bleed

everything designed

everything designed

the books they want us to read

the movies they want us to see

everything designed

everything designed

to keep us asleep

one day

we’ll no longer be seperated

one day we’ll go home

one day

one day

one day


o you can see me

you might feel me

but i’m not here

i’m empty… hollow… a shadow

tell me: how can i imagine anything?

the images are always and everywhere provided for me

the powers that be are hard at work dumbing us to death

i need my old skills

preserve my own mind

it’ll take the light of a moon or two

and nights filled with fires

the scent of animal perfume

will promise adventures

the air is filled with hope and beauty

i have my faith and Self belief

my heroes and confessions

i will be the One who sits and wonders

looking up with questions

look at me now, look at me now

do you see me now?

look at me now

i need my old skills

preserve my own mind


i’ll keep on running now until my feed bleed

i hope you understand it’s because of this secret

just keep on looking now until i know where i’m at

the beauty of this trip is that i’m probably already dead

i’ll keep on asking now questions that you don’t need

just to wake you up somehow from this hypnotising sleep

no i won’t stop now until our souls become One

it’s easy to see where we’re coming from

just keep on talking now until my words speak

it’s that i want to share what’s causing this inner heat

i’ll keep on praying now until i’m out of breath

the trouble with this Earth has a name:

it’s called ‘organised bloodshed’

and i’ll keep on learning now about some better way

what you might call failure is my reason to stay

so i’ll keep on pushing now the borders of decency

not stopping before i have set this world free

i’ll keep on dancing now until my time is done

the mission is for you to feel the dance i have become

and i’ll keep on smiling now no matter how hard i ache

until you’re ready to see: Love is the only key

Love is the only key
