lyrics

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

All quiet on the western front all still and silent night
All eyes on me waiting to count the wrong from the right
It's everyone seems to know
Which armory I should go
But all munitions kept hidden from my sight

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

Will rebellion always fold to what you're not trying to bend to
Impetus to try to live today to want what tomorrow brings
Like a giant dome of consciousness
Wondering how you maintain all this
Don't it get exhausting on the edge of your seat
Waiting to see what choice will be

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

Wouldn't bring my gun if I didn't want this fight
Our hearts weren't put here to hide away in the cold dark night
Put myself into this fire though I'm afraid to move
Lightning destroys everything I touch
And I'm fraid of touching you

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
And a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through
