There's a gray house, inside a yellow sky.
I used to hide all my butterfly wings.
An aviary, fallen feathers to the ground.
And a sudden cloud.
Uncertain bird flies around.

And what you do with what you've found
The stars around, your secret sound, the scars on your side.
The scars on your side.

A tear you kept in a sewing box.
And all the knives keep your back straight.
My house under big feet now, no shade.
Step forward withering, distracting knives and back again.
Watch myself turn to catch myself worn.

Help them take the ashes,
I can eat them when i need them.
