The Empire or The Fire

When my starlight doesn't shine bright anymore
Will he punch my ticket, letting me through Heaven's door?
Or
Will I be a patron who's partaking of Satan's flames?
A fire and desire hotter than Teena with Rick James

Frame by frame, I'm reflecting on chapters of my book
Forty-five years in the game moving 'round like a rook
I've been shook by crooks but I will never break
Walked through secret gardens, following my snake

Made mistakes that now equate to lessons learned
Playing with fire can cause empires to be burned
Discerned which turns to make and ones to avoid
Which currency to take and which checks to void

May have to loid the door to gain entrance to paradise
Hoping not to crap out when rolling the dice
Will life's vices slice and splice my final wire?
Preventing me from seeing he called the sire
