lyrics

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
