Track 11. The title track of the album, this is a song about insects.


A bluebottle whirs through a cavernous room
Antigravity ashtray all in gloom
Dazed and confused helicopter
Through the void you tumble
Oh, little fly, where will you go?
The world is small and getting smaller still

Are you not the same as I?
And am I not the same as you?
For I stumble through the days
As something greater far-off plays

A butterfly sings in a book by my bed
That I've not had time to read
He's looking for Juliet but
She doesn't need him anymore
She's in the one place he can't look
A different world in another book.
