Playing With The Gift, The Fireman And Arsonist By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

When something bothers me

I can feel myself freeze

I get stuck in a rut with no way to leave

When something bothers me

My blood starts pumping

I can feel my heart beat

I get a tingle from my head to my feet

When something bothers me

I can feel a fire rage inside

Its something I often try to hide

But they say you can see the smoke in my eyes

Its because I feel everything like an explosion deep within

And sometimes I can’t figure out if my feelings are my worst enemy

Or my best friend

I have accidentally started fires and almost burned down my own house

I have just been blessed enough to keep finding a way to put them out

Just as the walls start to fall

The fire suddenly starts to calm

It simmers to just a sizzle

And inside my stomach fizzles

This can’t keep happening it is no riddle

I know better than this

Setting fires with my gift

Letting the wrong side of me win

As the fire rages on within

Can’t keep playing this game

Setting fire to what you built would be a shame

Unless I wanna live out my days as a fireman and a arsonist

Setting fires and then saving with my gift

Gotta stop playing with it

Before it all comes tumbling down

And I find myself looking up at it from the ground
