Daybreak, wind is blowing strong
No escape, caught on a reef in the storm
Cast away, licking his cracked lips sore
Patient waits, hoping the rats reach the shore

Yesterday, seems a lifetime now
Remembering, those he left and how
Out in space, laughing at all below
Island stage, plays to his thoughts and ego

Dusk fall, fading sun no firelight
Memories, amplified his plight
Gathering, searching for shelter above
Feel the sting, choking on hoarded love

Their goals, I cast away...
Their goals, I cast away...
Their goals, I cast away.

    General CommentInstead of "Their goals, I cast away...", it's supposed to be:
    "Thin, cold, tired... castaway". There you go.
