Float on to the painted sky where we shall be unified as I slip inside
Where butterflies... never die

Multiply humanity, harmonize insanity, sharing light of remedy, holding
Tides of clarity, shattered glass in flower beds,
Humanize inhumane ends.

It's all the same for the dreamers, it's all the same... for us...

Float on to the painted sky where we shall be unified as I slip inside
Where butterflies...

Utilize surrendering, when silence falls, to you it sings, sterilize
Your mentality, compromise your reality,
Restful mind and peaceful eyes,
When sound is gone, then you will find,

It's all the same for the dreamers, it's all the same... for us...

Float on to the painted sky where we shall be unified as I slip inside
Where butterflies... never die

    General CommentUm, well it sounds like the singer when insane after someone very important to him and fragile died, or was murdered.

    Maybe his child or little sibling, or even a sick dear one, because butterflies can be killed so easily, so he creates an innerworld where they never die.

    Or "Float on to the painted sky where we shall be unified" sounds like he is forcing himself to slip away to find a innerworld were they never died.

    Anyway I love this song so much!

    My InterpretationThis song for me seems to be about something someone lost. Maybe like loss of innocents because butterflies are often associated with youth and innocents, purity and also they're easily killed, lost.
    "Float onto the painted skies [where dreams] will be unified as I'm swept inside." Could paint a picture of beautiful skies, but maybe "painted skies" could mean the unrealistic characteristics of life, "where dreams will be unified as I'm swept inside." could symbolize how life can drag you into things, even if you don't want to be part of them.

    "Multiply humanity, harmonize insanity, sharing light of remedy, holding
    Tides of clarity, shattered glass in flower beds,
    Humanize inhumane ends."

    The part above could mean a traumatic end to something good. Like it was never meant to end, but it did. So, maybe the song itself represents what could never be, "Where butterflies never die," a world where innocence isn't lost.

    Lyric CorrectionFloat on to the painted sky where (dreams will) be unified as I slip inside
    Where butterflies... never die

    Multiply humanity, harmonize insanity, (shedding) light of remedy, (pulling)
    Tides of clarity, shattered glass in flower beds,
    Humanize inhumane ends.

    It's all the same for The Dreamers, it's all the same... for us...

    Float on to the painted sky where (dreams will) be unified as I slip inside
    Where butterflies...

    Utilize (Surrendering), when silence falls, to you it sings, sterilize
    Your mentality, (Compromise) your reality,
    Restful mind and peaceful eyes,
    When sound is gone, then you will find,

    It's all the same for The Dreamers, it's all the same... for us... for us..

    Float on to the painted sky where (dreams will) be unified as I slip inside

    Hold on to the painted sky where we will be unified as I slip inside
    Where Butterflies... Never Die....Never Die.....
    Where Butterflies......

    My InterpretationI first heard this song when I was scrolling through YouTube, when I found this song along with Black Butler II's Alois Trancy. For those who aren't familiar with him may not understand what I'm saying on how I think it reflects on him. I won't put in any spoilers.

    "Float on to the painted sky where we shall be unified as I slip inside
    Where butterflies... never die

    Multiply humanity, harmonize insanity, sharing light of remedy, holding
    Tides of clarity, shattered glass in flower beds,
    Humanize inhumane ends."

    -When you've been crushed and you've lost what you loved dearly, you go into a world "where butterflies never die." You're miserable and there's not much of remedy. You know what's going on and you don't want to think or acknowledge it exists.

    "It's all the same for The Dreamers, it's all the same... for us..."

    -As a dreamer myself, I see that people with realities they don't like and you just want peace. You create yourself a new world and a new reality.

    "Utilize surrendering, when silence falls, to you it sings, sterilize
    Your mentality, compromise your reality,
    Restful mind and peaceful eyes,
    When sound is gone, then you will find,"

    -I see it this way. When you know everything is just wrong around you and you "compromise" your reality with what YOU want and no one can tell you what exists and what doesn't. You create your own world with a new life, new people, and everything goes the way you want.

    Anyway, that's how I see it.
