What am I? I wish I was a butterfly I'd fly and fly Until it was my time to die It's creeping in again I know what I really am No more pretty, purple, Peaceful butterfly Simple life If I were a butterfly I'd fly and fly Until it was my time to die Its creeping in again I know what I really am No more pretty, purple, Peaceful butterfly Come see the blood that's in my bed Come hear the things That nobody talks about Shut up you mouth Shame on you shame on me Look at me I wish I was a honey bee Anything, anything other than The things I have been I slip out of my skin So I don't have to do it again But just a passing thought And your filth is seeping in Come scrub my hands They won't come clean Come sit with me While the walls press in on me Shut off that light Shame on you. shame on me.
