Onyx

"Caged Butterfly"

[Intro: Miles Canady]
I crossed my t’s and dot my i’s
Still  found a rip in my disguise
Hide  my face, uncover my eyes
It's laughable how hard I try
My wings feel clipped on the inside
Too  painful to spread every time
And  yet they ask & wonder why
I’m too scared to fly

[Verse 1: Miles Canady]
Because  it hurts to try, I’m under the assumption I ain’t worth the time
My day-to-day’s been wasting space and moving with no purpose, I’m
Laying low, confidence so low that I won’t play a note
I’m still clinging on to that one life that I saved before
Speak  of which, my whole issue is that I cling to sh*t
Baggage feels so rough against my fingertips
But there’s still the steepest cliff waiting for me if I try to let it go
Will I fall or will I fly? Find out in the next episode
Fighting urges to cancel this show early
While I struggle to see why this main character’s so worthy
Good reviews and compliments and love from all my peers
But they don’t see deleted scenes where I’m fighting back tears
Wishing I would disappear, 3 AM inside my room
Like a butterfly that’s hurt and still hasn’t left the cocoon
He hears a voice in his head and tries to ignore it
Doesn’t realize it’s importance
It says...

[Hook: Miles Canady]
Give yourself a chance
You could fly
(I said you could really fly if you want to
I said you could really fly if you want to)
Give yourself a chance
You could fly
(I said you could really fly if you want to
I said you could really fly if you want to)


[Verse 2: Miles Canady]
You say I deserve fame, I say I beg to differ
Ain’t dropped a song in ages, someone spam some L’s on my Insta
Nothing more than a disappointment and I feel bitter
Jealous when I see you level up, I’m no hating n*gga
Or at least I think, oh, here it goes again
Throwing rage in my mind towards people I know as friends
Look through tweets from your fans, wishing that they would stan me
But I ain’t looked in a mirror in days cause I can’t stand me
I let depression sit, A lonely apartment ain’t the best place to let this in
Can’t pull myself out of bed to execute and get these hits
Hunger pains and convincing myself that I was never sh*t
Looking for the nearest ear to vent but sister left at 6
So instead I lay
Worst case rushing through my head, my hands are in my face
Complacency beckons me to waste another day
That voice in my head speaking, it’s tryna pull me away
Do you hear it?

[Bridge: Shay Raziel & Onyx]
Even with your broken wings
Everybody still got dreams
Reaching for the clouds, spirit on the ground, trying not to drown
Trying to slip away

[Hook: Miles Canady]
Give yourself a chance
You could fly
(I said you could really fly if you want to
I said you could really fly if you want to)
Give yourself a chance
You could fly
(I said you could really fly if you want to
I said you could really fly if you want to)
