Born I & Tenka – Firefly Lyrics

Some say the end is the beginning and every life is a cycle
Every life is a story so every life is a bible
Pulled in different directions by opposites that entice you
It’s hard to see with all of the devils and gods inside you
When the lights calm down and the room gets dark
And the candlelight flickers I’ma do my part, uh
Darkness in my spirit give me [?] but I fear it
Only leads me to the door of my destruction, I can hear it
Through the walls of consciousness, avoiding all my common sense
And now anxiety appears to be my body’s only occu-occupant
So sometimes I feel like the only choice is just to not exist
No, I’m just talking shit, wouldn’t do that to my mom and shit
Do that to my paps and shit, do that to my kids
To my wife, to my friends, to my useless fucking life and shit
I might just try to sit and sniff and sip it all away tonight
And slip away into the night and never see the morning light
I hope it’s more to life before I turn myself into a fucking [?]
‘Cause I got nothing left and I don’t know what’s right
That’s why tonight I’m sitting in the [?] posture
In front an altar tryna find a way to open all my frozen structures
Breath in to the belly, breath it out right through the nostrils
And as my mind settles then I start to hear the gospel
That some are still scheming for one another to fall
But self love requires the most courage of all

[Drop: Patricia Portillo]

I been trying to be healed
Looked into the sky for any signs of me revealed
When I’m out in public I aspire to be real but
The truth is that I’m only ever trying to conceal
What it’s like to lose a friend, in every moment you pretend
That it isn’t killing you that you never see them again
So I take a deep breath within and I say her name in my mind
And the craziest thing about it is you re-spawned every time
So I know I’m not alone as I’m taking steps in the dark
‘Cause life is the deepest value between the heaven, the heart
All you need is love, every moment is a choice
And if you close your eyes and listen, every moment has a voice
So if you ever find yourself fighting your past battles
It’s important to remember even light casts shadows
And some are still scheming for one another to fall
But self love requires the most courage of all
