Butterfly 03:30
They say that seasons come and seasons go But 2020's been a real shitshow My luck ran farther than I could count and I never meant to learn what I found out Trying to stay sane and trying to stay free Some transformation has come over me There's no place like home but nowhere's safe Can't save your soul without making a change Feeling like a butterfly I want to live but I got to die can't break free til my hands are tied So slam a shot on a full moon and drag my butt into a cocoon I ain't there yet but I'll be there soon O, Reverend, Reverend, when will we be wed? When we wake up the guests sleeping in their beds? The wine is water and the water is fine And we're all waiting at the wedding so make up your mind Feeling like a butterfly I want to live but I got to die can't take wing til my hands are tied So slam a shot on a full moon and drag my butt into a cocoon I ain't there yet but I'll be there soon When I bust out yea when I'm reborn I'll come a-riding on a wind that's gonna clean the corn, you’ll never see another like me evermore But I'm a, but but but I'm a butterfly
