"Island of Lost Souls" as written by and Chris Stein Deborah Harry....
In Babylon
On the boulevard of broken dreams
My will power at the lowest ebb
Oh what can I do?
Oh buccaneer
Can ya help me put my truck in gear?
Can ya take me far away from here?
Save my soul from sin?

You want to get away you've had it man
Nothing's going right
So come sit on the sands of the island
Island of Lost Souls

No luxuries, no no amenities
Too dull, your senses
Oh oh only primitive
"Hey hey really get away," is what he said

Where did he go?
I'm tired of waiting here for him
Where can he be?
He's not with me
Where did he go?
What will I do alone?
Why did he run, run away from me?

The sky is blue the sea is warm and clear
And golden sands are calling out to you inviting
Make a new man out of you

You can come for a while come with a friend
Forget about work start all over again
Let the real you through, here's what we do

Where did he go?
I'm tired of waiting here for him
Where can he be?
He's not with me
Where did he go?
What will I do alone?
Why did he run, run away from me?

Oh buccaneer
Can ya help me put my truck in gear?
Can ya take me far away from here?
Save my soul from sin?

No luxuries, no no amenities
Too dull, your senses
Oh oh only primitive
Hey hey really get away
Island of Lost Souls

Hey ya hey ya hey ya Island of Lost Souls

    General CommentI heard this song has to do with the island of pagans in the 1973 movie "The Wicker Man". In the movie a police officer from the governing mainland of the island comes to investigate the disaprearance of a young girl only to find out she was alive and was going to be used as a sacrifice to the gods of nature. The man thinks he saves her but in the end she leads him right to her 'captures' who then tell the man he was the sacrifice all along and proceed to burn him alive inside a giant wickerman. The movie culminates with the hethens singing their songs of worship with the lead man screaming Jesus' name with his dying breath. Pretty screwed up, but a great movie.

    General Comment...I almost forgot, the video for the song features masks worn by the pagans in the movie for their May Day festivities.
