"Firefly" as written by Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fincke, Mark James Klepaski and Jeremy Hummel....
You my friend
You're a lot like them
But I cut your line
And you know I did
Now I'm lost in you
Like I always do
And I'd die to win
'Cause I'm born to lose

Firefly, could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Take my hand
We'll be off and then
We'll come back again
To a different land
Now I like this way
You can go away
If you guess the name
You cannot replace

Firefly, could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Bring me your enemies
Lay them before me
And walk away, walk away, walk away

Firefly, could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Fuck you firefly
Have you lost your light
Now I hate your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
So you've lost my friend
Such a sorry end
And I don't know why
So I choke and smile (smile)

    General CommentBritt Erin, the opening line means that this person he's loved, "the firefly" is turning out to be like "them", which seems to be his enemies in the world. when you have someone "on a line", you're supporting and protecting them, keeping them near. when you "cut someone's line" you're setting them free, letting them care for themselves.

    this song is about caring and protecting someone, and having them change completely into something you despise, and the anger this illicits.

    it's a frigging amazing song.
