When I was younger I chased butterflies
But now I look around and realize
That there are no butterflies around here anymore.
Now there's more people everywhere,
And on ground that once was bare
they've built condos and shopping malls.
And on streets I walked where the sun shined,
Shadows grow as buildings climb,
And I get older getting colder everyday.
The concrete stretches for miles-
They put it up in different styles,
But it still looks pretty ugly to me...

What a pity,
They've fucked up this city
Where I grew up.
Now it's grown too big 
And there's no room left for me.

Maybe it was just cuz I was younger,
But people here seemed friendlier,
And life was so much simpler
When I was growing up.
People closed up as a defense,
Protecting what little space they had left,
And now everyone's uptight and tense.
The city's bleakness makes people numb-
Sounds and lights and escape 
From having to deal with anyone.
I want to live in a place where 
I can see a smile on the face
Of someone passing by and say "hi"...

Now I need to find a place
Where I can grow and climb
And I can chase
Butterflies again.
