(Fighting, living, dying)
(For what?)
(For freedom)
(That's what which men have fought since time began)
(To be free)

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

Who you are and what you do and where you coming from
I just thought I could remind you with this simple song
No bad body language can start to rebuff
To we're choosing weapons and hatred, no love
Not you

You are 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 can never break your bones
You just spread your
Wings and fly, wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always would
I knew there always was
Nothing wrong with being you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you

All you ever see, don't see it in our 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 are 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 will never break your bones
You just spread your
Wings and fly, wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always would
I knew there always was nothing wrong with being you

Who said
I wanna be, I'm gonna be
Everything they said 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 my of heart in these sheets
I could not just be a star in the street
Man, I knew what was different, I had a 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 the 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 to be
Man is double G 'n' D

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

You are 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
Words can never break your bones
You just spread your wings and fly, wings and fly
I knew you always would
I knew you always would
Yeah, I knew you always would (I knew)
I know there always was nothing wrong with being
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you

You
