lyrics

4. Butterfly

My butterfly, my kerosene
I want you in my blood
and between my teeth

My Sunday's child
my corroding wing
I used up all the air that lovers use to feed
the monsters lining up and waiting at the door

Get up, there's nothing left to say
let's fall, and burn, and fly, and throw it all away
and then,
call it just a holiday

your textbook stride
and your backward smile
you force back the night, with an impolite punchline

my butterfly, my burning chance
you curl up the flames, and play them like a harp
and throw me in the mud, and make me
make me dance

about

Kliffs Berlin, Germany

Kliffs write recycled tone poems for the perpetually bemused, and pop songs for shy dancers. They channel the quiet of early morning sun rays tickling cloud banks and mix it up with songs better suited to late-night inner city bicycle rides.
