Lyrics

CATERPILLARS TURNING INTO BUTTERFLIES
MAGIC BUTTERFLIES TURNING FROM COLD CONE
YOU BEEN ROLLING WITH THE PUNCHES
PLAYING BY THE RULES
HAD YOUR HEAD IN THE LIONS MOUTH
BURNING ALL YOUR FINGERS
YOU BEEN SHAKING LIKE A TREE
BLOWING IN A HURRICANE
LOCKED OUT IN THE RAIN
BENDING OVER BACKWARD
BUT I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU TURN INTO
A MAGIC BUTTERFLY
KARMA CHAMELEON, CAMOUFLAGE THE PAIN
KARMA CHAMELEON, A NUMBING IN YOUR BRAIN
YOU’VE BEEN CRAWLING LIKE A REPTILE
ROARING LIKE A BEAST
FLOATING LIKE A BUTTERFLY
AND STINGING LIKE A BEE
YOU’VE BEEN DANCING IN THE LIGHT
HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF
HOLDING STEADY LIKE A WARRIOR
IN THE MIDDLE OF A JUNGLE
BUT I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU TURN
FROM A CATERPILLAR TRAPPED IN A CACOON
TO A BUTTERFLY WITH ELEGANCE AND VIGOUR
FROM DARKNESS TO WALKING ON SUNSHINE
BREAKING OUT FROM EXCILE TO FREEDOM
CATERPILLARS TURNING INTO BUTTERFLIES
MAGIC BUTTERFLIES TURNING FROM COLD CONE
BUT I’VE BEEN WATCHING YOU TURN INTO
A MAGIC BUTTERFLY
A MAGIC BUTTERFLY
A MAGIC BUTTERFLY
