Caterpillar Wishes

Chip on my shoulder
Its just the weight of the world
(Balanced on a boney blade)
I hear a symphony
Been keeping a back beat
(As the melody is played)

Hit on the three and five
Bird to nest bee to hive

I’m making my way up
Been climbing the food chain
(He’s been being very good)
I’ve been waiting patiently
With other species
(Caterpillars Wish they could)

Turn into butterflies
And take to the sky blue sky

- Can I get a witness, got to get a witness
Caterpillar Wishes he was blind
- Can I get a witness, got to get a witness
Making up his caterpillar mind
- Can I get a witness, got to get a witness
To drink from the nectar of the caterpillar gods
From the bottle of butterfly wine

I’ve been thinking it over
I’ve been thinking it over
And I believe it can be done
I’ve been testing the water
I’ve been taking readings
And I believe it can be done
