It's got all the elements:
Hammocks and heights
Room for rebellion
New dirty light
Words without meaning: We've given them none
Friends bound for destruction, not fearing the sun

With opulous trees bendings down to a shore
Finding time in the day to ask
"Who would want more?"
Bring out the sunscreen or bring on the sin
As soft summer air embraces your skin
Oh, nothing's on purpose
It all falls in place
As we're getting used to this new island pace

Oh, I'm restless with ocean and hearing him speak
It's strange what can happen in only a week
Well, I'm focused on sea things, but quickly reply
It's funny for some that a rock is this guy
As our stakes are turning to darkness
We arise to this island occasion that simply is wise

Turn into creatures of the summer heat
Embracing the night with music and laughter
The earth is pulsing under our feet
Time takes you now, fear it after

Think it's time for a break from the stresses of life
Time to relax and unwind for a while
Now we're on this rock, it's like we never left
And we're floating away from the rest of the rest of the world
Which simply is wise

As I sit getting high under summer's sunset
Behind mountatins and oceans
Well, I must confess if I died right now
I'd stare Death in the face and say
"Heaven just tried to compare to this place"
Which simply is wise

Just turn your head
Don't even think about the city
Make due with this bed after a long day in the sun
We turn into creatures of the summer heat
Oh, attacking the night with music and laughter
The earth is pounding under our feet
Time takes us now, we'll fear it after

Simply is wise
La, la, la

Sun is almost up, going down, going down
Sun is almost up, going down, going down

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I think it's my favourite Hey Ocean! song.

    The imagery I get in my head when I listen to it is so beautiful. I can just imagine being on a tropical island, enjoying the sunshine, laying on the beach soaking up the sun, laying in hammocks watching the sunset and hearing the sound of the ocean rushing to the sure. Simply beautiful!
