► Lyrics:
(Spoken intro)
Fighting, living, dying
For what? For freedom?
That for which men have fought since
time began, to be free

They’ve been making blanket statements
scaring everyone
They been making you feel like you
never did belong
Yeah he said, and she yeah, yeah
they say a lot
So many things they just
think you forgot

Who you are and what you do and where
you’re coming from
I just thought I could remind you with
a simple song
No bad body language can start
to rub off
Til we’re choosing weapons and hatred
not love, not you

You were in the wilderness
Looking for your own purpose
Then you became a butterfly,a butterfly
I knew you always would
Cause they were throwing stick
and stones
But words could never break your bones
You just spread you wings and fly, your
wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always were
I knew there always was nothing wrong
with being… (you)

All you ever see on CNN are enemies
Telling you to lose your individuality
Look, do this and do that til you’ve
lost your way
Til you need a vice or a means
of escape

They want you to stare into your screen
and see yourself
Blow smoke into your mirror til you’re
mentally unwell
So don’t let them catch you with lies
and deceit
They can’t take your soul or desire for
freedom (you)

You were in the wilderness
Looking for your own purpose
And you became a butterfly, a butterfly
I knew you always would

Cause they were throwing sticks
and stones
But words could never break
your bones
You just spread your wings and fly,
your wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always were
I knew there always was nothing
wrong with being

Who said I wanna be, I’m gonna be
Everything they said that I
couldn’t be
Everything that I said I would be
when I picked up a pen and I started
to speak
I hear the beat, my melody
I just pour all of my heart in
these sheets
I could not just be a star in
the streets
Man, I knew I was different
I harboured belief

Nowhere to live, nothing to eat
You were so hungry that you
couldn’t sleep
You couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t be
All of this shit was happening to me
I would do drugs, I was a thief
Still on the run from the
karma police
You were the mission that’s given to me
by the powers
That be man there is a God

You were in the wilderness, looking for
your own purpose
And you became a butterfly,
a butterfly
I knew you always would

You were in the wilderness
Looking for your own purpose
And you became a butterfly,
a butterfly
I knew you always were
Cause they were throwing sticks and
stones (they were throwing stick and
stones)
But words will never break your bones
You just spread your wings and fly,
your wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always were
I knew you always were
I know there always was nothing wrong
with being (you)
