Maybe the sky's falling out around the babies
Maybe the world is going to spin out of control
I don't care anymore
What if I quit today working for the man
Who said I have another, well, maybe I can
I sooo gooone anywaays
Tell me doctor, whats the cure, for the wicked mans blue's

Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly

When the skies, fall to the seas
I won't mind
The cause is me
When the wind, blows through the trees
I won't mind
The dragonfly

Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly

When I come
Give me a beat
and take my advice
Just let me be

When the moon, turns black as night
When it erupts
Oh, dragonfly

*Insert guitar solo*

Don't takes so long
I'll be here before you know
See you in my mind's eye
Fly, fly dragonfly

Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly
Fly Dragonfly

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually...

    Maybe the sky's falling out around the babies
    Maybe the world is gonna spin out of control
    I don't care anymore
    What if I quit today working for the man?
    Who said I had another, well, maybe I can?
    It's all gonna end anyway
    Tell me doctor, what's the cure for the wicked mans blues?

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    When the sky falls to the sea
    I won't mind, the cause is me
    When the wind blows through the trees
    I wanna ride the Dragonfly

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    When I come, get me a piece
    Take my advice, just let me be
    When the moon turns black as night
    Bathed in the fires of Dragonfly

    Fly Dragonfly

    Don't take so long
    I been here before you
    Now, I see you in my minds eye

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    Straight from the booklet.

    General CommentThe first verse tells everything. He obviously feels stuck with his life, and he wants freedom. Maybe wants to pursue his dreams again? Just wants to forget everything and hit the road. That's all I think this song is about, gaining his independence/freedom back. The whole "Fly dragonfly" is himself telling himself to just get out of whatever it is he is stuck in.

    General CommentI agree with MattJames2010 - those lyrics seem correct. I think the key to the song is in the acoustic version. The lyrics are slightly different.

    Maybe the sky's falling out around the babies
    Maybe the world is gonna spin out of control
    I don't care anymore.

    What if I quit today working for the man
    And said I had enough, well maybe I can
    Cause it's all gonna end anyway.

    Tell me doctor, what's the cure for the wicked man's blues?

    (Fly, dragonfly)

    When the sky falls to the sea
    I won't mind,
    the cause is me.

    When the wind, it burst through the trees
    I won't cry
    for a dragonfly.

    Fly dragonfly, fly dragonfly.

    When I come, and get me a peace. (piece?)
    Take my advice
    just let me be.

    When the moon, turns black as night.
    We'll bathe in the fires
    of dragonflies.

    Fly dragonfly, fly dragonfly.

    Don't take so long.
    I'll be there before you know.
    And I see you in my mind's eye.

    Fly, dragonfly.

    Don't take so long.
    I'll be there before you know.
    I see you in my mind's eye.

    Fly dragonfly, fly dragonfly.
    Fly dragonfly, fly dragonfly.

    Don't wait so long, I will be there before you know.
    I will suffer the world just to see you once again.

    Fly...
    Fly...
    Fly...
    Dragonfly.

    Fly, dragonfly.

    This is a band's lament song. He's alone on the road, and he's starting to lose his ability to hack it. He just doesn't care anymore, about touring, about the band, about any of it. Instead of enjoying the crowd, he's enjoying the alone moments (when I come, get me a peace...take my advice, just let me be) when he dreams about the dragonfly - his happiness, his strength, his girl at home. That explains the added couplet on this version.

    General CommentI think mattjames and Brittanyx are both right. His life is in a hole. He is telling himself, look what is the worst that can happen? Gets your grown man on and try something else! Even if you fail you will only be back where you started.

    General Commenti think these are correct lyrics, i think he is talking about the end of the world, either that or the whole song is a hpyothesis for ones life ending and the dragon fly symbolizes that persons soul escaping.

    Maybe the sky's falling out around the babies
    Maybe the world is going to spin out of control
    I don't care anymore
    What if I quit today working for the man
    Who said I have another, well, maybe I can
    I sall gona end anyways
    Tell me doctor, whats the cure, for the wicked mans blue's

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    When the skies, fall to the sea
    I won't mind
    The cause in me
    When the wind, blows through the trees
    I won't mind
    The dragonfly

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    When I come
    Give me a beat
    and take my advice
    Just let me be

    When the moon, turns black as night
    When it erupts
    Oh, dragonfly

    *Insert guitar solo*

    Don't takes so long
    I'll be here before you know
    See you in my mind's eye
    Fly, fly dragonfly

    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly
    Fly Dragonfly

    My InterpretationEh, here's my take on it:

    Maybe the sky's falling down around the babies,
    Maybe the world's going to spin out of control,
    I don't care anymore.

    What if I quit today, a workin' for the men,
    And said I had enough, well maybe I can,

    It's all gonna end anyway.

    Tell me, doctor, what's the cure for the wicked man's blues?

    Fly dragonfly (x4)

    When the sky, falls to the sea,
    I won't mind, the cause of me,
    When the wind, blows through the trees,
    I wanna ride, my dragonfly,
    Fly dragonfly,
    Fly dragonfly,

    When I come,
    Get me a beast,
    I take my advice
    Just let me be.

    When the moon, a-turns black as night,
    Bein' in the fires,
    Oh, dragonfly,
    Fly dragonfly,

    Don't take too long,
    I've been here before,
    You know (I now?),
    See you in my mind's eye,

    Fly, dragonfly. (x4)

    Song MeaningIn Japan, dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness. I think the song means that when life gets hard; when things are looking bad, you need to find the courage and strength (the "dragonfly") to get through those difficult times. Don't let hard times stop you from living your life, because "it's all gonna end anyways." I don't know if that's the correct meaning... that's just my best guess...
