Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die

Album: The Terror (2013)
  • If you've ever really seen the sun rise
    You will see how many times it tries
    If you've ever really seen the sun set
    You will see how long it takes to die.

    You can see the butterfly has landed
    Landed on your prison plates, you're out
    You can feel its trouble making a teardrop
    You will see how long it takes to fly

    You can see the universe beginning
    Making all the sun and the sky
    You can see the universe is ending
    Making love darker than the night Writer/s: KLIPH SCURLOCK, MICHAEL IVINS, STEVEN DROZD, WAYNE COYNE
