Karen O - Bullet With Butterfly Wings Lyrics




The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers hold you up to the flames
And what do I get for my pain?
Betrayed desires and a piece of the game

Even though I know, I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold like old job

Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say
What is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage

Now I'm naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it for just one more show?
And what do you want? I want to change
And what have you got when you feel the same?

Even though I know, I suppose I'll show
All my cool and cold like old job

Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say
What is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage

Karen O Bullet With Butterfly Wings Comments
  1. Scott Brooks

    I like the arrangement, and the rat part is a nice change from the original.

  2. trefrog

    what the fuck are these comments even?

  3. t ø a d

    I personally love it when she says “rat in the cage” lol. Why does everybody hate it??

  4. The BrightAGen Show

    Just a RRRRRRRat in a cage!

  5. Oskain123

    Snapchat brought me here, and fire on my rage sounds annoying. Can’t sing for shit!
    Who came here by the trailer when you're gonna watch Twitch? xD
    Twitch streamers should be forced to watch this once a day for 30 minutes straight so that they can feel our pain. I generally get upset when this ad starts to play. I've had this same ad for months now. I miss Jack Ryan
    Not bad. Interesting. Mostly I'm just glad whenever people show some respect on the pumpkins. They're so much better than people think.

  6. Brekner Catalin

    Eh it's a cover, you can't expect it to be that good. Very few covers do justice to the originals.

  7. Man Sprouter

    This song genuinely needs to kill itself

  8. ayshzx

    I actually liked it, but the part that she says ''rat in cage'' it's...weird

    I still like the Smashing Pumpkins version better...

  9. Ere Licious

    I swear to GOD if I have to witness another Hanna add on Twitch with this RAT song running im gonna lose it!
    Just stop!

  10. Andrei Stanculescu

    i'm just a RAAAAAAAAAAA in the cage. This must be one of the worst songs and worst singing i've heard in my life.

  11. Guy from 20XX

    I think the problem with this is that it feels a bit edgy
    Like compared to the old school rock kind of edge the original song had
    This is just like going from 60-0, kek

  12. Marshal S

    This is ear noise/rape. Makes me want to punch a baby whale.

  13. GreenSnake1997

    best version

  14. Dara

    steel justa raAAat inuh cayuhge

  15. Farhan J.

    Worst song and most annoying trailer ever on twitch.

  16. Trashed

    zzzZZZzzzZZZzzz...crappy somber sounding covers of actual good songs used in movie/show trailers. God so over this fad.

  17. JON B MOFO

    whos fucking sick of hearing this on twitch?

  18. Stannis

    Hate this fucking song

  19. Sulle

    I hate this song, twitch. Please do something about that commercial.

  20. Alexis AN AN Narezo

    #JLM# TONIGHT

  21. Nokena

    why are so many comments here word for word identical? that‘s awkward

  22. Funk SC

    I alredy hated this song before this cover, now this shit is all over twitch adds, go fuck yourself lady 1:06 is the most ANNOYING fucking sound ever!

  23. Mystik: Manza Motorsport

    Despite all my training, I am still just a rat in a maze

  24. Torsten

    Karen O, you fucking can't sing and you're trying to hard. Now I've been listening to this shitty song on Twitch several times. Tell 'em to stop running the ad until they find something you could actually categorize as a song.

  25. Zuper_Anonymos

    hate this song every time im on twitch i here this.

  26. DedGhost

    Can't get this out of my head... Please help I once saw it on twitch now I can't sleep because I keep repeating it

  27. MAZZYY

    Fucking Twitch brought me here

  28. Tyr

    Fuck ur rat in a cage bs. That ad sucks mad DICK

  29. Alchemist

    Being honest, I prefer the original, by this is better in its right.
    Is that just me?

  30. Oliver Golding

    mediocre..

  31. BluePanda

    i wanted to see if the entire song is cringe just like "still just a rat in the cage" part and well, it was. why trihard so much? why go so high-pitched? if you have to try so hard to convey emotion in a song then don't (in my opinion)

  32. Reycors

    Thanks, i was searching for 30 min

  33. Conor Davies
