What's that thing
About a butterfly wing causing a typhoon
If it's true a wire runs through each thing we do
Then I better stay in my room
Better stay in my room
Better stay in my room

A dressing man will choose the white
By this he saves a life
I don't see her there 'till he comes up behind the sun shines on white
I see the light i hit the brakes the dead girl walks away
And I better stay in my room
Better stay in my room
Better stay in my room
Better stay in my room

Better stay in my room
Better stay in my
Better stay in my room

You go for a ride a girl won't come home
Or maybe that's not the way it goes
Maybe she's fine
Maybe you see a light in time
People are born blaze and collide
We go outside
My hand pushes air
I don't care
I don't think
About the butterfly thing

Honey come outside
And don't think about
The butterfly thing
