about

originally appeared on Get Lost (2005)

lyrics

Though he was an ancient man
Wrapped in mummy tape
When the bandage was unravelled
We saw a tropical landscape

We stepped into his torso
Made like nothing wasn't wrong
And heard the ringing of a gong

Great leaves of palm
Endless beach's sand
Iguanas in the bushes
Feeding from my hand
Coconut milk shake
Melting in the sun
Island paradise inside
A body aged three thousand and one

She lay in solitude
On a coast that wasn't there
She made an angel in the sand
And threw the sun back into the air

She needs a coral necklace
And a seaweed woven blanket
Several million nightlights
And a turtle in a basket

Great leaves of palm
Endless beach's sand
Iguanas in the bushes
Feeding from my hand
Coconut milk shake
Melting in the sun
Island paradise inside
A body aged three thousand and one

Line her up some sea gulls
Make everything just right
So all the maiden's wishes
Can be made true tonight
