lyrics

you were quite happy
but that’s in the past
i knew it wouldn’t last

this forward movement
ending in a crash
is history rehashed

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

another sermon
goes up on the shelf
written to yourself

your patent’s pending
you never can tell
if heaven’s really hell

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

but i know....
better than to argue
with a hungry alley-cat
even when it’s obvious
who’s gonna pay for that
i’d rather be the audience
than be the diplomat

once again you’re never looking back

the shelf life
of butterflies
the atoms
that fill your lies
you tell yourself
you’ll leave it all behind

but i know better
