    Standing equipped
    Indian paintbrush clenched in my hand
    Eyes remain alert
    Ivy vines creeping to pull me down
    But the grass pushes me skyward
    Away from the skeletons dancing below
    And the rain flows backwards
    Floating me higher
    Above the shadows
    Oh the wind'll blow ya down
    Keeping you buried in the ground

    I'm a monarch butterfly
    Ink blotted but still alive
    I was tied to the hollow tree
    But the blackbirds set me free

    Bones turn to stone
    Melodic songbirds revive my soul
    Swallowed body and all
    Demons drowning down in the sinkhole
    But the rocks roll my feet forward
    Erasing the trail I'm leaving behind
    And the stars keep a record
    Of things that will never leave my mind
    Oh the wind'll blow me there
    Moving me to land somewhere

    I'm a monarch butterfly
    Ink blotted but still alive
    I was tied to the hollow tree
    But the black birds set me free
