Lyrics

Cocoon

Don’t want to be no butterfly
Don’t want to sprout no wings
Want to stay here in my cocoon
And think unhappy things
Don’t want to flutter ‘round no sunny field
Don’t want to ride no wind
Gonna stay here where I’m safe and warm
You all do what you intend

Your sky’s so big and blue and wide
It scares the hell half out of me
I plan to stay right here inside
Can’t you all just let me be
I hang out with the beetles here
I hang out with the crickets too
So I’ll just stay here near the ground
If it’s all the same to you

Nobody pays me any mind
Down there among the weeds
And here in my cocoon
I got all the friends I need

Your world goes by so fast
And it don’t make no sense
Since I’m here all by myself
Don’t have to think in present tense
My view don’t ever change, it’s true
Done ate up all the scenery
But here in my cocoon
None of that matters much to me

Don’t want to be no butterfly
Don’t want to sprout no wings
I’ll just stay here where its safe and warm
And think my unhappy things
Right here in my cocoon
Just let me pupate here in peace
Here in my cocoon
Why can’t you all just let me be
