宿命から逃げて
I’m a Karma Butterfly
戻らない Slip slip slip slip slippin’ through
偽りだけの Battle life

棘がささったままで
飛び続けるのだとしても
かまわない 背負ってゆくわ
Only heaven knows
Only heaven knows, knows, knows

解き放つ Feeling
羽広げて Set me free
宿命から Get away (から Get away)
I’m a Karma [ティ/All] Butterfly
鼓動が Stop stop stop stop beating
止まるまでの Battle life
まだ見ない [ティ/All] 愛へ
飛ぶ Karma Butterfly

It’s fascination, did you notice?
Ever since then
My true self has always been
Pushed unside this cage

To the girl reflected in the mirror
I ask softly, who’s this girl
Acting out someone else’s playing role
I don’t want to do it anymore

Release this feeling
Spread those wings and set me free
Get away from fate
I’m a Karma Butterfly
This pulse won’t stop beating
Until the battle life ends
Release this feeling
I’m a Karma Butterfly

A sheer feather clothed like
A celestial maiden
Tinged with poison from my wings
The fragrant incense

I’m born again, make a move
As I please
I’ve never shown anything to anyone
I want to show my face

Release this feeling
Spread those wings and set me free
Run away from fate
I’m a Karma Butterfly
I won’t go back, slippin’ through
It’s just a fabricated battle life
Now is the time to release me
I’m a Karma Butterfly

The thorns are still stuck
Even if I continue to fly
It doesn’t matter, I’ll keep on carrying it
Only heaven knows
Only heaven knows, knows, knows

Release this feeling
Spread those wings and set me free
Get away from fate
I’m a Karma Butterfly
This pulse won’t stop beating
Until the battle life ends
To the love I don’t see yet
Fly Karma Butterfly
