Lighters Lyrics

This one's for you and me
Livin' out our dreams
We're all right where we should be

With my arms out wide
I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters

By the time you hear this
I would've already spiraled up
I would never do nothing
To let you cowards fuck my world up

If I was you I would duck
Or get struck like lightnin'
Fighters keep fightin'
Put your lighters up, point them skyward

Had a dream I was king, I woke up still king
Rap game's nipple is mine for the milkin'
'Til nobody else even fuckin' feels me, 'til it kills me
I swear to God I'll be the fuckin' illest in this music

There is, or there ever will be, disagree, feel free
But from now on I'm refusin' to ever give up
Only thing I ever gave up's usin', no more excuses
Excuse me, if my head is too big for this buildin'

And pardon me if I'm a cocky prick
But you cocks are slick
Poppin' shit on how you flipped
Your life around, crock of shit

Who you dicks tryin' to kid?
Flip dick you did opposite
You stayed the same 'cause cock
Backwards is still cock, you pricks

I love it when I tell them shove it 'cause it wasn't that
Long ago when Marshall sat, luster lacked, lustered
'Cause he couldn't cut mustard, muster up nothing
Brain fuzzy 'cause he's buzzin', woke up from that buzzin'

Now you wonder why he does it, how he does it?
Wasn't 'cause he has buzzards
Circlin' around his head
Waitin' for him to drop dead, was it?

Or was it 'cause some bitches wrote him off?
Little hussy ass fusses
Fuck it, guess it doesn't matter now, does it?
What difference it make?

What's it take to get it through your thick skulls
That this ain't some bullshit
People don't usually come back this way

From a place that was dark
As I was in just to get to this place
Now these words be like
A switchblade to a hater's ribcage

And let be known from this day forward
I wanna just say thanks
'Cause your hate is what gave me the strength
So let them Bic's raise 'cause I came with 5'9"
But I feel like I'm 6'8"

This one's for you and me
Livin' out our dreams
We're all right where we should be

With my arms out wide
I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters

By the time you hear this I probably already be outty
I advance like goin' from totin' iron
To goin' and buyin' four or five of the homies
To Iron Man Audi

My daddy told me, slow down boy, you're gonna blow it
And I ain't gotta stop the beat a minute
To tell Shady I love him the same way
That he did Dr. Dre on the Chronic
Tell him how real he is or how high I am
Or how I would kill for him, for him to know it

I cried plenty tears, my daddy got a bad back
So it's only right, that I write till he can march right
In to that post office and tell 'em to hang it up
Now his career's Lebron's jersey in twenty years

I stop when I'm at the very top
You shitted on me on your way up
There's 'bout to be a scary drop
'Cause what goes up, must come down
You goin' down on something
You don't wanna see, like a hairy box

Every hour, happy hour now, life is wacky now
Used to have to eat the cat to get the pussy
Now I'm just the cat's meow, ow, I'm classic now
Always down for the catch weight, like Pacquiao

Y'all are doomed, I remember
When T-Pain ain't wanna work with me
My car starts itself, parks itself and auto-tunes

'Cause now I'm in the Aston
I went from havin' my city locked up
To gettin' treated like Kwame Kilpatrick

And now I'm fantastic, compared to a weed high
And y'all niggas just gossipin' like bitches
On a radio and TV, see me, we fly
Y'all buggin' out like Wendy Williams
Starin' at a bee hive and how real is that?

I remember signin' my first deal
Now I'm the second best, I can deal with that
Now Bruno can show his ass
Without the MTV awards gag

You and I know what it's like
To be kicked down, forced to fight
But tonight we're alright
So hold up your light, let it shine

'Cause this one's for you and me
Livin' out our dreams
We're all right where we should be

Lift my arms out wide
I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters
A sky full of lighters

I don't get it. Why did you censor the lyrics when the point of posting them is so that people can get the right ones.

@K.C. I KNOW RITE xDD Danielle, Cussing Is A HUGE Part Of Rap. Get Used To It, Or Just Don't Listen To Rap; It's That Damn Simple.
