Song Machine Season One Strange Timez 12.png
[Intro: 2-D]

(Mike WiLL Made-It) Oh, when was I supposed to Bow down with you? (Yeah) What can I be prayin' for? There's nothing in this world (Can we, can we just leave that last piano part a little bit?) (Leave it there) (Is there a lighter?) Bow down with you What can I be prayin' for? There's nothing in this world

[Refrain: 2-D] Oh, when was I supposed to (Yeah, yeah) Bow down with you? (Bow down now, bow) What can I be prayin' for? (Prayin' for, prayin' for) There's no one in this world, like you? (Like you, nah)

[Chorus: 2-D] We're dead butterflies (Butterflies, butterfliеs) Laid out on a sprung floor Waiting for the low tide To pick us up and fly (Fly, fly) We'rе dead butterflies

[Verse 1: Roxani Arias] I'm all in, let me know what you're thinking Catch feels, wine down while we figure this out, right now (Right now, right now) Deja que fluya pa no perder el control No queda de otra vamo a estar en lo mismo Estoy dispuesta a darte todo el cariño (Todo el cariño)

[Verse 2: Kano] Two-stepping while I move reckless New settings, booze and nudes pending Loose evidence and news trendin', effortlessly truth bendin' Who's treacherous? Searching for feelings of a new friendship There's but a few endings, everyone's a winner 'til you lose bredrin Hold tight when we use to hold tight Levitate to most high, don't fuck up the whole skyline Bright lights, I hope that feeling can replenish Regretful, 'cause if I let you left me then I'll be rush rouletting With a whole full clip in pow Cashmere drippage, now and memories, lift me up, but still a man's tears dripping down On to these photographs of what we used to be But overtime the puddle turns into a sea When I observed you cry a stream I was just surfing on your grief That I can't delete, just come to terms with who was me But who are we? These mirrors don't reflect perfection Just put on your crep selection, come and two step to heaven with me

[Chorus: 2-D] We're dead butterflies (Butterflies, butterflies) Laid out on a sprung floor Waiting for the low tide To pick us up and fly (Fly, fly) We're dead butterflies

[Verse 3: 2-D] 'Cause if it's not me then Whose it gonna be, baby? If it's not us (Not us, not us) There's nothing in this world for me

[Chorus: 2-D] We're dead butterflies Dancing on a sprung floor Waiting for the load tide To pick us up and fly (Fly, fly) We're dead butterflies

[Refrain: 2-D] When was I supposed to (Get up, get up) Bow down with you? (Bow down, bow down now) What can I be prayin' for? (Prayin' for, prayin' for) There's no one in this world, like you? (Like you, nah)

[Outro: 2-D]

We're dead butterflies (Butterflies, butterflies)
