Black and white the keys
Pressed up against blues
Oppressed children born
A painted point-of-view

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Street lights of darkness
Switch blades for hearts
What Momma cries for
Shots heard in the dark

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Rats to a garbage meal
Living off of the streets
Tailor made for prisons
Bars for hands to meet

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Children of grey prisons
Your light will find wings
Butterflies of the world
Hand to hand we’ll sing

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Flowers will rise to open
Hearts of art into spring
We are the expressions
Of what hope will bring

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Pass the butterfly today
