I’m gone and I think I’m going home to the island.
Don’t cry, 'cause you know I left my pride on the island.
Everybody crying they don’t want to get old.
Spend time searching for silver and gold.
They don’t want to leave a stone unturned.
Sometimes innocent people get burned.
Living in the city gonna make me go mad.
Loose what sanity that I had.
No doubt about it, the brother can’t stay.
Time has come for me to make a get away.
