I set myself on fire
From burning all these bridges
And now my worlds on fire
And I'm just burning with it

I set myself on fire
I set myself on fire
I set myself on fire
From burning all these bridges
And now my worlds on fire
And I'm just burning with it
I set myself on fire...
Firestorm by Sean Leon

To burn a bridge means to go ahead and do something knowing you can’t go back. If you burn your bridges, you can’t go back to where you were before.

Leon admits that he has burnt bridges (as he further explains throughout the verse) and the result has not been positive, in fact, he has burnt himself on fire. But he lets himself burn with it, showing acceptance and responsibilty for the actions that he proceeded with.

Vanity...
Vanity...
All my niggas drip Vanity
Vanity by Sean Leon

Narcissism is one of the key themes throughout this tape, most obviously in its title that namedrops the Greek character in which the term was named after.

The term means fascination with oneself, an excessive self-love someone has for their own identity.

The term is repeated in the hook, this is called Pantoum, an archaic poetic form used to emphasize the significance of a characteristic. In this case it’s stressing the negativity of vanity, we see this by it being declared that it drips off Sean’s friends, like a sludge.

Vanity is clearly observed nowadays through everything from getting a fresh pair of J’s and a new haircut, making yourself look attractive to uploading selfies and tagging them with a testament of hashtags so to get as many likes as possible.

See 20/20 I'm focused Narcissus by Sean Leon

Sean knows what he wants with [his women] and his success (so much so that he believes he’ll climb to Jay Z’s heights in a few years).

20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance, you can see pretty much perfectly.

This is Sean’s way of saying his focus to ideas and desires are unparrallelled in the amount of concentration that is used to achieve them

Everybody there was twenty years younger than me Ben's My Friend by Sun Kil Moon

Kozelek sees the difference of age in the audience as an indicator that he, (a good friend of Ben, who was personally invited and supplied with a backstage pass) is the one out of place here. Again this could be Kozelek simply thinking of excuses to get him out of the gig so he doesn’t sound impertinent to the listener.

Kozelek is 47.

There's a fine line between a middle-aged guy with a backstage pass
And a guy with a gut hanging around like a jackass
Ben's My Friend by Sun Kil Moon

He obviously believed that his position at the event was in fact the negative thing about the night, he objectifies his weight and self-depreciation and labels himself a jackass.

He summarises himself as the anti-thesis of another character, like him, middle-aged and with the same backstage pass yet entirely different to him in the sense that he hasn’t got his gut hanging out and isn’t being a jackass. This embodies who Kozelek wishes to be, but just can’t seem to step into the shoes of this man.

He uses this jagged self-conflict as an excuse to get him out of the gig.
