Hey, look, yo

No castaway, no survivor
I ain't lost and this ain't shipwrecked
I feel small in this big wide world
And mommy ain't said, 'Honey, I shrunk the kids' yet

I ain't Jesus but I'm walking on water
There's no bums here, there's no wall 'cause
I can break out of jail with a lighter
So is there any point in making laws blood?

This ain't Atlantis, are you sure?
I nearly suffocated when I touched the shore
No rain, condoms get poured
And up the road, you'll never guess who I saw

It's K.A. look, skip on the beat like Ali in the gym
Honey, I'm home, this is where I wanna live
Disbanded like leave, oh
On the d-low

I don't know if it's greener but it's green though
On the other side of the fence, bind to the ends
Look, no fence, no stress, no rent, no supervision shit, this real flow
Where the women look hot but the beach cold

And the speech goes like, "Hi little lady
Sex on the beach, wanna try for a baby"
Word in the village, I'm a little bit crazy
Swag up on a hundred degrees, no eighty

Look, if heaven had a VIP
This is it, white sand, blue sea
But I don't know who they are
And I'm damn sure they don't know me
But I come in peace

Cool, white flag, white flag

No war, no guns
No corps, just life

Just love, no hate
Just fun, no ties

Just me and my mind
Just me and my wife

But tell me if I'm dreaming
'Cause I don't wanna wake up till the evening
And I don't wanna be left sleeping
From all the diseases that I breathe in

Look, respect the island, no stealing
And don't bring religion here, no three kings
It's great and we ain't leaving
We come on in peace, sing

White flag, white flag
