he draws out, the cigarette smoke trail spins//
thoughts crowd the room, till its only him//
he feels it, he lives for it//
spent half a life pushing it forward, what he wouldn't give for it//
saw naysayers put in their places//
feel like he's scaling the foothills of greatness//
holding all four aces, he braced//
for the next few years being some for the ages//
no time to heed, pride come before the fall//
for now he shines, all rose, no thorn//
full bloom, like his plan fool proof//
high noon sun beaming, spoke to soon//
the dark clouds scream towards his door//
and a house of cards, it cant stand in the storm//
wind picked up, sunshine stopped//
the world came down with the very first drop

light me up, like a cigarette//
and just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, and catch fire//
light a spark, and ignite it in the dark//
so when im no more theyl know i was here before, so just let me burn//

he still gunning, beaten but refused to be broken//
what some call delusional others call focus//
nah he focussed, came back for the re up//
nows not the time to kick back with his feet up//
stands in the rain with his face to the heavens//
and his arms outstretched from the pain that he let in//
world keep kicking hard, aint gonna get him//
he's willing to fight and die for the path that he heads in//
and thats a bittersweet faith//
knowing high and lows will come boy but them's the breaks//
its pride, its madness, its seeing what others can only imagine//
and then reaching out to grab it//
saying "i can say that whatever comes happens//
but i followed my heart my goddamn it"//
exposing reality to magic//
its hope, and thats all it is, he walked through fire and its all he came back with, saying//

light me up, like a cigarette//
and just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, and catch fire//
light a spark, and ignite it in the dark//
so when im no more theyl know i was here before, so just let me burn//

come what may, some memories fade//
but some stay as vivid as the moment they were made//
dreams of the days where he stood like a mountain//
its been a while since then but who's counting//
he lies awake, lies in wait, for the light of the morning to bless him, and shine again//
summon the rise of the fallen//
laces tied, comeback trail still walking//
lives for it, lifetime on the mish for it//
man, there aint a thing he didn't give for it//
but make a bet till his last sun sets//
hel be pushing for the light, matey aint done yet//
head held high slow danced through his hell//
still a point there he gotta prove to himself//
and, the beat drops, same songs on next//
so he sparks up a cigarette, takes a deep breath//

light me up, like a cigarette//
and just let me burn, catch fire, and burn, and catch fire//
light a spark, and ignite it in the dark//
so when im no more theyl know i was here before, so just let me burn//
