TONIGHT THE MOON IS A DESKLAMP
THE WORLD IS A PAGE
WARDROBE BULGING WITH BONES
AND BILLS I HAVENT PAID
EVER FEEL LIKE THE SAILOR
WHO JUST SWALLOWED THE SEA
I BETTER LEAVE BEFORE I’LL BE
A HAPPY ZOMBIE

I AM THE BUTTERFLY
I’VE SHED MY FATHERS CLOTHES

I AM SUCCESSFULLY A FAILURE
BUT HAPPY ALL IN ALL
THEY SAY MY INSTABILITY
IS THE REASON I WONT FALL
NO NO I’VE NEVER BEEN LOST
ALWAYS KNEW MY WAY HOME
BUT THAT VACANCY OF SHOULDERS
IS THE REASON I HAVE FLOWN

I AM THE BUTTERFLY
I’VE SHED MY FATHERS CLOTHES
