Eating Me Alive

This song is by Iniquity Rhymes and appears on the album Destyn (2015).

(Hook: Cryptic Wisdom)

Sometimes this life is not
What you expect it to be (Not at all)
You gotta play your cards right (Play your cards right)
If you're to earn the life you need (Earn the life you need)
I Thought I had it figured all out (All out)
So went ahead and let it all out (All out)
But what I know is that it's my doubt eating me alive (It's eating me alive)

(First Verse: Iniquity Rhymes)

Everyday I pave the ground extending roads
Where I'm going remains uncertain, renowned but no abode
Music's my saviour, my nature, found ways to level with those in need
No show of greed, but if I don't open up I'll explode
I'm full of these doubts, even now, there's no way you'll rob me of my flame
But that won't stop my mind from clouding, I'm afraid to switch up lanes
It's like I'm stuck in cruise control and everyone's tryna get past me
While I'm too stubborn in my ways "Screw it, they can drive around me"
I think my problem is I've become too comfortable
Unlike a bull I lose my drive, hit rock bottom, I have to pull
Myself back out of this hole, hopeless though, important you know
That I'm the only human but you hand me the rope, I'm not alone
(I'm not alone!)
Life likes to throw us these curve balls, that's not what I want
I want control, I'm at the top looking down on myself hoping I don't flop
It's happened a lot, I lose myself and forget that I'm here to lead, yeah
Your ears lend me support, believe that's all I need
And so I think...

(Hook: Cryptic Wisdom)

Sometimes this life is not
What you expect it to be (Not at all)
You gotta play your cards right (Play your cards right)
If you're to earn the life you need (Earn the life you need)
I Thought I had it figured all out (All out)
So went ahead and let it all out (All out)
But what I know is that it's my doubt eating me alive (It's eating me alive)

(Second Verse: Iniquity Rhymes)

That after all I put in I still don't have all that I want
That sinful manner have caused this battle, coup d'etat
Of mindful matter, these daggers of sorrow rip through all I've got
I spend all these sleepless nights but give up? Hell no I shall not
Wishing more would come is just a weakness, how
Have I overcome in the past? Well you help me beat 'em down
I mean my fears, you give me power to save myself from drowning
How the sound unwinds me keeps me grounded, a soldier is inbound
They seem to do well with their gimmicky raps
But I bring true music that speaks to the heart, the lyrics they lack
I focus on my message, the essence, you've given me that
Surround myself with friends not those who just feed of digits, relax
A wicked relapse somehow turns receptive vision to crap
No pivoting back, but I won't give in, got no business with that
I sit in this trap constantly plotting my vicious attacks
Refuse to join the rotting, join my mission, musician has snapped
So c'mon!

(Hook: Cryptic Wisdom)

Sometimes this life is not
What you expect it to be (Not at all)
You gotta play your cards right (Play your cards right)
If you're to earn the life you need (Earn the life you need)
I Thought I had it figured all out (All out)
So went ahead and let it all out (All out)
But what I know is that it's my doubt eating me alive (It's eating me alive)

(Third Verse: Iniquity Rhymes)

It's eating me alive to think after all that's happened...
Recall my passion, my past let's recap it, balance was absent
I was captive, found out rappin' provided something I haven't
Felt, abided to rules of attraction and rose from the ashes
After all that I still lost control and self esteem
Man I feel like homing devices converged on my soul just to feed
Fears are dethroning me, exposing grief, opposing teams
Composing schemes to overthrow my deeds
I reap what I sow, that's what I deem
So what happens when I sow negativity and doubt myself?
Gotta intervene and shout my wealth 'cause I'm rich with dreams that sprout and hell
Better bring some meaner bouts I'll yell
Till I seem serene, surmount my hill
We're the kings and queens our routes fulfil when we take that leap and pounce
It all seems simple when you see from outside the box
I AM LEGEND, it's time to kindle your speaker got the game on lock
The world is UP IN FLAMES and I will NEVER be FORGOTTEN now
So WELCOME me HOME 'cause I'm here to claim my crown

(Hook: Cryptic Wisdom)

Sometimes this life is not
What you expect it to be (Not at all)
You gotta play your cards right (Play your cards right)
If you're to earn the life you need (Earn the life you need)
I Thought I had it figured all out (All out)
So went ahead and let it all out (All out)
But what I know is that it's my doubt eating me alive (It's eating me alive)

(Outro: Iniquity Rhymes)

It's eating me alive!
It's eating me alive!
It's eating me, it's eating me alive!
