Butterfly (Pain Confessor)

Spread the fragile wings, reach for the sky Leave all sadness behind Higher and higher to reach the stars A mere butterfly in the storm of life From earth you are born And back to earth you are drawn Death's own all the same The wise, the strong, the frail Spread the fragile wings, reach for it all Sun burns the wings, greedy ones must fall A dreamer soul burns like a candle Lit from both ends Thirsty heart can never be quenched From earth you are born And back to earth you are drawn Death's own all the same The wise, the strong, the frail Remember when you were born At that same moment You were sentenced to die And to carry the burden of life Our dreams are built into castles And those walls will crumble down Nothing is forever, to each his own Spread the fragile wings, reach it for the last time The tireless hope to live a good life Our hope is in vain, our wishes will never come true Each life will end, every dream will die Remember when you were born At that same moment You were sentenced to die And to carry the burden of life Our dreams are built into castles And those walls will crumble down Nothing is forever, to each his own
