Lighter Fluid (Wade)

Sat, 07/28/2018 - 13:14 -- HY-PHEN

I wanna float on Lighter fluid,

I want to watch the fire dance around me,

I want to be lighter fluid,

Cause the mess I'm in is heavy.

 

Life doesn't slow down,

Won't slow down for anyone.

That current can be redirected,

But not turned around.

 

There is a time to wade,

A time to go against the current.

A time to be silent,

A time to speak up for what you believe in.

 

Your actions are your feelings

Are your thoughts are your beliefs

You can tell your future 

By the attitude in your presence

 

Don’t let the storm you’re in

Determine the boat you steer.

 

I wanna float on Lighter Fluid,

I want to watch the fire dance around me,

I want to be Lighter Fluid,

Cause the mess I'm in is heavy.
