Caterpillar Girl

Hit me like a kick to a thickening gut
The beat has gone beaten me up
No one's gonna lift me out of this rut
The groove has gone ground me to dust
I'm knocking on the wrong cocoon
Spun another web of lies

And then you break through
And dry before my eyes
Take me with you, where you hide tonight

Did you feel the beat in a fetal curl
Could you be original caterpillar girl
Crawling up the vine, splitting your spine
Flowing through the motion, leave a shell behind

And when you break through
And dry before my eyes
Take me with you, where you hide tonight
Take me with you, where you hide tonight

Away, alone, look out
The birds, like me, want you now
We want you now
Caterpillar come out

And then you break through
And dry before my eyes
Take me with you, where you hide tonight

Away, alone, look out
The birds, like me, want you now
Away, alone, look out
The birds, like me, want you now
We want you now
Caterpillar come out
