"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 Comment“You my friend are a lot like them so I cut your line and you know I did”
    That would be him taking the person from what they were (What brought him to them)

    “Now I'm lost in you
    like I always do
    and I'd die to win
    'Cause I'm born to lose”
    He’s saying that even though he’s not giving up he knows its going to end badly.

    “Firefly, could you shine your light? And 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 your open wide”
    He’s talking about how in the process of making the person into him he’s slightly slipping into that they are.

    “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”
    He’s talking about changing the person’s views on things again.

    “Bring me your enemies lay them before me and walk away”
    He’s talking about protecting them. Maybe to preserve the person they once were before he starting changing them.

    “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” He’s saying he’s completely lost the person he cared about because he changed them so much there was nothing left to like.
