Metamorphosis

June 24, 2007

No MP3 of Metamorphosis is currently available, but that may change soon.

For the first time in ages, you smiled without tears
And when you said you were fine, I believed you for the first time in years
You seemed six inches taller, your old clothes looked new
You said that you’d found someone and he’s in love with you

And everybody’s happy for you, you found the love we all hoped you’d find
I’m just not sure if it’s a shame for the rest of mankindIt was kicking-out time in the Last Chance Saloon
You’d been out on the lash since the afternoon
You’d have gone for anyone, and he was of the same mind
When he offered you coffee, you politely declined
And when he called in the morning you were sober
He confessed to being a little hungover
But somehow he’d reminded you how to shine

And everybody’s happy for you, you found the love we all hoped you’d find
I’m just not sure if it’s a shame for the rest of mankind.

On an overcast day in the middle of autumn
There were very few rays of sun but you somehow caught ’em
As you unchained your bicycle from where you’d left it overnight
I’d swear that somewhere behind you, a butterfly took flight

And everybody’s happy for you, you found the love we all hoped you’d find
I’m just not sure if it’s a shame for the rest of mankind.
