Tried to light the blunt, but it burst into flames
Caught the reflection in the window of what he became
A long look, wasn't shook, wasn't ashamed
The dude finally manages to see himself and what he has become through a window’s reflection and, after a few seconds, realizes that his new facade actually doesn’t bother him
Or, it could be about the blunt bursting into flames … MYH’s coffin was filled with liquor and assuming he had the blunt on him in the coffin it’d be soaked in liquor which would most certainly burst into flames when lit.
