Pull our pockets inside out
Our hips have grown wings
With a block and tackle or dumbwaiter
We'll hoist ourselves up with strings

And if someone were to pull and tug
It would only make us fly
And once our pockets think they're wings
We're guaranteed to fly

We'll flutter for change
Collecting strangers
But they'll all look the same
So let's float away for good

The fighters aren't fighting
They're just dancing round the ring
And so their butterflies have been let off
They're in the alley, down the street

They're rallying in cardboard boxes
They're trying to fight the rain
They're trusting their caterpillar instincts
That they'll soon be flown away

They'll flutter for change
And warm up their wings
Cause today is only today
Soon they'll float away for good

And I remember everything
So I'll remember everything
And I remember everything
So I'll remember everything

    General CommentThis song off of their first album, and Ghost off of their second are two songs that to me were sort of so-so for a while, but the more you listen the more fantastic both songs become.
