You have nothing to do
so you just keep on wandering 'round
I have stars in my eyes
but does it really matter here

you have no idea
of the pain you cause every day
I can see through you
for what you love has been taken away

I once had the eyes
and I could see
I once had an island
but my island is gone
and I can't carry on

you dance circles here
the same ones you danced here before
but i can see through you
what you want
is not there anymore
