Just a castaway
An island lost at sea, oh
Another lonely day
With no one here but me, oh
More loneliness
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah...

A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep us together
Love can mend your life
But love can break your heart

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my

I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah

Walked out this morning
Don't believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shore
Seems I'm not alone at being alone
A hundred billion castaways
Looking for a home

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my

I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in the bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah

I'll send out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS

I'm sending out an SOS
I'm sending out an SOS
I'm sending out an SOS
I'm sending out an SOS
I'm sending out an SOS
I'm sending out an SOS

Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS
Sending out an SOS

    General CommentI like the police version, but anything that has to do with Brandon Boyd is going to be great. I usually hate live songs, but this one kicks arse.

    General CommentAs far as I remember the band's name was Incubus, not Brandon Boyd. I love the guy as much as everyone else but for fucks sakes you girls are unbelievable.
