​Another Scarlet Butterfly

This song is by Drivin' N' Cryin' and appears on the album Scarred But Smarter (1986).

A caterpillar character
Of an iron clad cocoon
Bundled up in nonsense that the end is coming soon
But the prophet's have all told him
The judgment day will shine
But the caterpillar character will die without a life
The caterpillar character will die without a life?

I said I have learned to live not die
And I have learned to laugh not cry
Now fade away like a sudden whim
Another scarlet butterfly fades into the wind

A retrospective healer
Has always come too late
The ones already done
Can't and won't be changed
A futuristic healer
Will never feel the pain

No chance no stance no black no white
No chance no stance no black no white

A vicious scarlet butterfly
Spreading rumors spreading lies
Though never ever leaving home
Spreading lies about the world

Until you have walked one mile in my shoes
Seen innocent people torn and abused
Standing there naked, standing there scared
Come live come die come grow come fly
Come live come die come grow come fly
