Live Life Lyve (100 Photographs)Mature

This is a really soft yet very dark hip/hop song that i really took my time with and just finished a couple days ago. Everything is rapped except for the chorus which is ment to be sung by a female vocalist. Please give feedback on it and i hope you enjoy it

Live Life Lyve (100 Photographs)

(Verse)
One hundred old photographs lay out on the floor
Captured in black and white with their images fadin’ outta sight/
Forgotten memories like Amnesia just wishin’ I could reach cha
Cuz now I’m lost in this world so confused like Sybil/
Sixteen different “Alters” singing every syllable at the altar
With Demonic tones while they break my bones/
And who knows what my future holds
I think it’s some kinda Medieval creature that science has yet to discover/
And whenever you come over I get so tongue-tied I can’t even speak
All I hear is the voices in my head begin to squeak and these walls begin to creep/
Closer and closer I think I need a more sure form of torture to get my closure/

(Hook)
Cuz I’m breakin’ down don’t know where I can turn around I’m feelin’ like I could drowned/
I know how that must sound but I’m gagged and bound just wish my life could be rewound/
But I will rise higher than the skies I’m not wearin’ any disguise
Just look into my eyes and you will realize I am not tellin’ any lies/

PRECHORUS 
Now it’s time for me to lose myself in the moment I can feel my music blarin’ an’ all I’m hearin’ is your voice sayin’

CHORUS
Stay conscious you can do this it’s time for finesse to break down this fence
You only got one chance so stand up and dance and live life lyve
You’re built to survive surrounded by adversity is when you will thrive
So just live life lyve find your dream and just dive in

(Verse)
And as I navigate through life’s sneaky snaky path tryna avoid the wrath Of all those who wanna infect me with their toxic air/
I have to stay aware while I’m on this great journey cuz no one’s there
To warn me of my enemy so it’s up to me to pick myself back up and
Resurrect like the World Trade Center after 9-11/ (woo)
Haunted by the faces in these one hundred old photographs Laid out on the floor all around me I know they wanna see me in Heaven/
That’s why I’m talkin’ to this Reverend seven times a week It ain’t cuz I’m weak just need a new space to think

(Hook)
Cuz I’m breakin’ down don’t know where I can turn around I’m feelin’ like I could drowned/
I know how that must sound but I’m gagged and bound just wish my life could be rewound/
But I will rise higher than the skies I’m not wearin’ any disguise
Just look into my eyes and you will realize I am not tellin’ any lies/

PRECHORUS 
Now it’s time for me to lose myself in the moment I can feel my music blarin’ an’ all I’m hearin’ is your voice sayin’

CHORUS
Stay conscious you can do this it’s time for finesse to break down this fence
You only got one chance so stand up and dance and live life lyve
You’re built to survive surrounded by adversity is when you will thrive
So just live life lyve find your dream and just dive in

(Hook)
Cuz I’m breakin’ down don’t know where I can turn around I’m feelin’ like I could drowned/
I know how that must sound but I’m gagged and bound just wish my life could be rewound/
But I will rise higher than the skies I’m not wearin’ any disguise
Just look into my eyes and you will realize I am not tellin’ any lies/

(Verse)
I’ve got a full tank of petrol and I’m in control never gonna play myself justa fill a role/ Start at the bottom the bottle then work my way to the top of the totem pole/
But the one hundred old photographs lay out on the floor
Captured in black and white with their images fadin’ outta sight still haunt me at night/
And there’s no way to for me to fight when I’m blinded by the black light of Lucifer As he comes nearer I get so tongue-tied I can’t even speak/
All I hear is the voices in my head begin to squeak and the walls being to creep/
Closer and closer I think I’ll get my closure with his more sure form of torture/
But I can’t surrender and let Hater’s put my under
So like a Viking I’ll pillage and plunder in any weather even in the thunder/
Because I’m Tha Phoenix and don’t know what a quick fix is all I know is

PRECHORUS 
Now it’s time for me to lose myself in the moment I can feel my music blarin’ an’ all I’m hearin’ is your voice sayin’

CHORUS(X2)
Stay conscious you can do this it’s time for finesse to break down this fence
You only got one chance so stand up and dance and live life lyve
You’re built to survive surrounded by adversity is when you will thrive
So just live life lyve find your dream and just dive in

(Outro) Now it’s time for me to lose myself in the moment I can feel my music blarin’
