Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Cosmic Butterfly

This song was created for Game of Bands round 208 : "Desert"

Lyrics:

Call me crazy but I had an idea
To search for contrast in scarcity
No need to pack for this trip
I’ll always be unprepared

All I know is
There are more answers than the questions I have
That’s why I fly high in the sky
Instead of lay in the sand
Just one more breath in this physical realm
Then I’ll let the universe take the helm

At the oasis I did unwind
Took just enough to realize
Even the desert is full life
I’m riding the wings
Of this cosmic butterfly

Now every pebble
Has its own story to tell
And every color and shape
On the surface melt
I swear I’ll never believe in hell
If every moment I could be cast under this spell

Well all my hatred has faded away
Like seeing the world from outer space
How clumsy was I to never portray
This feeling of elation in my former days

Atop the dunes I had peace of mind
Took just enough to redefine
What makes creation so damn divine
I’m riding the wings
Of this cosmic butterfly

Every good thing comes to an end
I’m left with memories I’ll soon forget
Just like the desert I’m exposed to the wind
One last step and I’m back to the Earth again

Into the city I long return
With no more reason to be concerned
Turns out we’re all floating through the sky
We’re riding the wings
Of this cosmic butterfly

(To the sky
To the moon
To the sun
To the stars)

We’re riding the wings
Of this cosmic butterfly

Don’t even worry about saying goodbye

We’re riding the wings
Of this cosmic butterfly
[Exit]
