Lyrics:
[verse 1]
starfish are playing
they move about
as long as we’re laying
their cool hands down
we have been told
it’s no use getting old

follow the tide
let days go by
ode to the breeze
ode to delight
we have been told
it’s no use getting old

[pre+chorus]
and we carry all the parts
carry all the parts to last here
and we carry all the parts
carry all the parts

[chorus]
we are fires on the barricades
we are fighters to your cool parades
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
we are riots to your serenades
we are choirs to the silent days
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
in the stream
[verse 2]
come to the tribe
let day go by
oh what a treat
oh what a lie
we have been told
it’s no use getting old

[pre+chorus]
and we carry all the parts
carry all the parts to last here
and we carry all the parts
carry all the parts

[chorus]
we are fires on the barricades
we are fighters to your cool parades
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
we are riots to your serenades
we are choirs to the silent days
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
in the stream

all we are we are
is hungry islanders
(all we are we are)
[chorus]
we are fires on the barricades
we are fighters to your cool parades
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
we are riots to your serenades
we are choirs to the silent days
all we are we are
is hungry islanders
in the stream

all we are we are
is hungry islanders
