I have nothing, nothing to give,
And I have not a single reason left to live
I take a boat into the open sea
I am adrift, I am debris

I am lulled by the ocean's rhythmic splash,
When I'm beset by a tempest in a flash
My craft is rent, my fate is clear:
My body washed up here

What I was disappears
I see my future here
Time is clawing at my fate

There is no fauna, no sound of life;
The jungle's darkness as oppressive as a vice
Upon the mountainside I find some human tracks,
And when I hear the drums there is no turning back

Welcome to the island, welcome to the island
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island

What I was disappears
I see my future here
Time is clawing at my fate

What I was disappears
I see my future here
Time is clawing at my fate

They writhe around the fire as if a dying snake,
Their flesh impaled, the mountain's bloody thirst to slake
The altar glistens with the latest sacrifice
Before a toad-like idol with a thousand eyes

The native cries seem to feed the flame
Their eyeless faces turn to me and call my name
Curtains of smoke recede, reveal a blackened throne, and I—
I am home

What I was disappears
I see my future here
Time is clawing at my fate

What I was disappears
I see my future here
Time is clawing at my fate

Welcome to the island, welcome to the island
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)

Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)
Welcome to the island, welcome to the island (Iä Tsathoggua, iä Tsathoggua!)
