This song was created for Game of Bands round 136 : "Minimalism II"

Lyrics:

Ekman Island

Half a world away, a vast expanse awaits.
Out of sight and out mind, it's the perfect place to keep our discarded history.
It's easier to leave it here than to bury or burn.

From a distance, it glitters in the sun,
but on closer inspection, it's just the same things we saw today... yesterday... and the

day before.
Like the ground stripped of trees and the stinging haze in the air,
it's yet another piece of evidence showing our sickening disregard for what we have, and

what we no longer want.

Anything that can will end up here, drawn in like a magnet and arranging itself into a

swirling mass.
Now that we know, do we take it back? Or will it return on it's own? And which option is

worse?
Until one of these happens, it remains suspended in this watery purgatory, growing like a

tumor.

The space between us all might feel so empty,
But it's not.
We are throwing our footprints over our shoulder.

Now half a world away, this vast expanse remains.
Gathering, heaving, sinking, and repeating.
But that's not my problem.

The space between us all might feel so empty,
But it's not.
We are throwing our footprints over our shoulder.
Ekman Island is under construction, but nobody wants to come

Ekman Island is under construction, but nobody wants to come
[Exit]
