Phinix – Crash and Burn Lyrics
It was 5pm on a Wednesday afternoon when I walked into my room and I finally found you
How are you?
I saw your ears perk up in fear of the worst when you heard me say I gotta get something off my chest!
Well now that I’ve got your attention, listen!
You’re my inspiration, I’ve always sought to please you.
To see your face glow and have me grow like my feet are the roots by which I’m planted,
To make you frown is all I never wanted..
But see, the memory of my car has been haunting me,
So it’s about time I put it to an end haltingly.
I remember when I just got it, you doubted my decision.
You told me I wouldn’t keep it for long.
Those words formed the melody that my cerebrum turned into a song.
You didn’t get how it was unique in form,
My sunshine in the storm.
My love for it was past the norm
Til one night, I with it, was dead and gone!
Trust me, I knew better than to drive alone at such dark hours.
It was too dark to see, too dark to envision.
My tear ducts didn’t dare to think twice about blurring my vision.
As I drove down what seemed to me, what seemed to be an abyss of a highway.
My lungs exhaled as my chest got pressed against the steering wheel.
The vibrations of the breaking glasses caressed my eardrums as I flew through the windshield
Broken pieces of glass punctured their way into my wrists
Numb to the pain my body endured in a glimpse
I know, I know I shouldn’t have had drunk so much before getting behind the wheel
But I was addicted to every drop that sung tenses, sprung bases, numbed senses.
But all I could taste as my teeth gnashed was the blood that gushed from my face.
As I lay there hopeless, helpless, waiting for the car to burst into flames,
I started to think I was actually going to make it…. Until it finally did!
I died that night when I crushed and burned.
My corpse and hopes turned to ash in turn.
My soul eloped with the ash I earn (urn)
In a flash I yearn and fantasize a greater return.
So I crashed and burned but rose after I learnt.
Then it dawned on me,
I watched life and death both come to be.
Peaceably I started to live after death called on me for all to see.
Honestly, it’s as if my rise was only for me but my fall was for all to see
The car I speak of is a synonym of all I wanted to be
I was high as I drove under the influence of your ill words over me
Your negativity killed my vibe
Your words weakened my stride
But now I am alive telling you to speak all you want to become and see
My heart is bleeding
The words that you spoke were ammunition against my ambition and vision
Left me without hope
Gasping for air,
I am here, astounded at how little me can allow you to belittle me
For I am heir, royalty.
Honestly, the words that you spoke without a care ripped my insides apart,
A part of me partially felt like the parted sea.
The life in me became deceased by the syllables that your mouth released.
The dream in me became diseased by your sick mind that infected me.
Gasping for air, I drowned in seas….
I look at you wonder what twisted mechanism endowed your soul that killed your ability to feel?
What clustered your mind that deactivated your ability to dream for real?
Words Have Power.
A power that’s the difference between breath and death, ask the fig tree.
Words Have Power.
Do you even know you have such an ability?
Most of those that do take it lightly like the power of the Sun!
It’s time to switch sides and make failure run when you flex your tongue!
Those words that were meant to hurt me only ignited a flame inside,
The fire inside is screaming for an outlet.
How do I quench this flame with a subliminal Phoenix dialect?
The fury of those flames only quenched my thirsty heart and then,
It’s as if I was lost then found but misplaced myself again.
Your attempts to belittle me are but as ash to a Phoenix, fuel for my rise and transcend.
I see your hope vividly come to an end as you watch me lyrically ascend!
I’m glad I finally got your attention even now when I look at you;
Those doubtful words you spoke into your own life only limited you,
Believe in yourself just as much as I do.
Phinix, you are the man in the mirror.
For you are me and I am you.
