Just a castaway
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
With no one here but me
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

A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me 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

TV set, jetstream, haul off until tomorrow
Internet, flat screen, what's the message in your bottle?
She'll be coming around the mountain when she comes full throttle
Battle axe and chop em down, that's the call of the wild
There's no message in your bottle, emptiness, it's just hollow
Think the way to wake up is through sex, that's just shallow
Tossing seed into the wind producing loss and sorrow
Draculas on MTV sucking the blood from the marrow
Hard-hearted like stone, want to be known like Pharaoh
Said let my people go, that's the call of the wild
Children drowning in the rivers, swimming Babylon towers top...
If it's roots are cut off, how we gon' feed this flower
Might look pretty temporary but rotten within the hour
Disconnected from it's source with no footsteps to follow
Chasing death disguised as life, world's a bridge that's narrow

Woke up 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
