    LYRICS:
    Stella’s 7 months pregnant, ankles getting restless
    I know I’m supposed to be the anchor in the tempest
    But I woke up in a bad mood, inexplicably depressed
    Inner diction vexed and littered with Tourette’s
    Walls risen in defence, a blizzard in ma head
    Trapped inside a facsimile, lungs imitating breath
    The world is slowing down, ever since I was a wean
    I could hear it in ma skull as blood simmers in ma veins

    Monsoon season come alive
    By the mood of a butterfly

    Veronika always says ma moods are contagious
    By the will of the ancients, I would that I could change this,
    But when ma brain twists, twitching that same glitch
    I’m running in place in a maze ‘til the haze lifts
    This is already a wasted day
    Vacuum-sealed in the space left by everyone I’ve chased away
    Eyes glazed, I’m plagued by waifs and strays
    Singing Amazing Grace balanced on a razor blade

    Monsoon season come alive
    By the mood of a butterfly

    Jade posted a poem about winter in June
    I’m in the botanical gardens and since they’re in bloom
    I’m in amongst bracken and thorns, pulling blossoms out
    The only time my feet are off the ground is when I’m falling down
    I started a joke that had the whole world in stitches
    No man is an island but if you burn all your bridges
    Sometimes all you can do is batten down the hatches
    And wait ‘til the storm passes

    Dancing spirals with her toes
    Feet twitch, Ankles roll
    Breath in, knees lift
    Then fall to the rhythm that she drifts into sleep with
