Butterfly

This song is by Can and appears on the Compilation album Delay 1968 (1981).

Fiction garden as you're burning
Sudden motion
Reastoring kind electric
Falling under cloudy sky
Running past the way
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly
Can you hear dying butterfly, falling nightmare?
As you see
Reastoring kind electric
As you hear the unknown cry
Keep the motion on the floor
These are butterfly, butter, butterfly
Butter, butterfly, butter, butterfly
Butter, butterfly

Over years I hear a wonder
Watching as you're under
Screaming in the dust is growing
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly

I can hear your motion round
Crashing with your sound
Falling underground, come on, come on, come on
Butter, butterfly
Come on, come on, come on, butterfly
Come on, come on, come on, butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, he can't fly
As I hear you're coming back home again
Dying, dying butterfly, dying, dying butterfly
Dying, dying butterfly, dying, dying butterfly

Dying butterfly began to fly
Dying butterfly began to fly
Dying butterfly began to fly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly

Dying butterfly never dies, never dies
Dying butterfly never dies, never dies
Dying butterfly never dies, never dies

Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly

Butterfly, you cant die
Walking 'cross the sky alright
As you hear her turn around
And you see she hears your sound
Dying butterfly, dying butterfly
Dying butterfly, die!

Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, you can see her
Butter, butterfly, you can see her
Butterfly, you can see her
Butterfly, you can see her
Butterfly, you can see her, oh yes, see her
You can see her, oh yes, see her
You can see her, oh yes, see her
Butter, butterfly, you can see her, yes, you see her
You can see her, yes, you see her
You can see her, yes, you see her
You can see her, yes, you see her
You can see her, yes, you see her
As you're flying across the sky
Gonna die
Dying butterfly, gonna die
You can see her fly, you can see her fly
You can see her fly, you can see her fly

You can, you can see her fly
You can see her, you can fly
You can see her die, die, die, die
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
You can see her flying high
As she sees herself, say goodbye
You can see her fly, goodbye
You can see her screaming "butterfly"
Butterfly, butter, butter, butter
Butter, butter, butter, butter
Butter, butter
Fly, fly, fly, fly
Fly, fly, fly, fly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly

You can see her, you can see her fly
Butterfly
