i am the bon fire

I am the bon fire that brightens up the dark...
I can hear the poison whispers from ur heart..
equally as deadly as a poison dart
toxic chemical injected from the start 
But I am the bon fire 
I get stronger I get higher
and as the blood travels it wont take long 
and everytime that ive been wronged 
it didnt kill me it made me strong 
i'm immune to the games you play
and i know all your wicked ways
And even with the shake you throw on me 
I burn faster and higher like gasoline
and as i burn and severe ties 
the more i open my own eyes 
as i set that bridge on fire 
i get stronger i get higher!!!
