"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 Commenti think this song is about someone who finally gets who they want after trying so hard. he/she had to break them away from who they really are and bring them into "their world". after this person got them he/she finds out who this person really is. he/she thought he/she could handle their problems and issues, but then he/she realizes what they got themselves into. this person isn't really who he/she thought she/he was. this person won't change.

    "You're a lot like them
    But I cut your line"
    he/she took her/him from their "world"


    "Firefly
    Could you shine your light
    Now I know your ways
    'cause they're just like mine"
    him/her wanting her/him to "shine their light" like a firefly lights up... comprende? to make sure that it's there


    "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"
    him/her asking her/him to come with them into their "world"

    "Bring me your enemies
    Lay them before me
    And walk away"
    him/her thinking they can take on hers/his problems/issues


    "Fuck you firefly
    Have you lost your light
    "Now I hate your ways
    'cause they're just like mine
    So you lost my friend
    Such a sorry end
    And I don't know why
    So I choke and smile"
    he/she realize who this person really is and how they didn't change when he/she took her/him out of their world when he/she thought her/him could
