Verse 1
Picket fences hold no glory,
No history pages,
Oblivious to a gentle stranger,
Punish me tyranny.

And I’m waiting,
To asphyxiate my heart,
No escaping,
From my self-sabotage.

Fly, Into wonderland,
Take me high,
Ruby rivered carpet ride.

Suicidal Butterfly
Suffocate, Suffocating,
Suicidal Butterfly
Suffocate, Suffocating.

Verse 2
Deadly dreams confined in limbo,
Ideals that swallow me,
And I’m frightened,
To hand this noose to you,
Uninvited, will you hold me tight?

Pre-chorus 2
And I’ll fly, over wonderland,
So high,
Ruby Rivered carpet ride.


Delicate, butterfly
Ruby rivered butterfly.
