Official “Rising Phoenix ” Lyrics:

Verse 1 (Performed by georgetragic) – There’s a young boy / walking through obstacles / Cut up from all the surgeries / Prosthetic picture perjury / Telling me, I’m normal / But normal, they never really made me seem / They always painted me / Discriminated but levitated through all the hated scenes / so I redrew how they made me seem / But that’s what you feel around vultures and all the fatal schemes / They wanna label me a crippled, that’s the way it seems / Take away my right to pursue a normal life and lead

Verse 2 (Performed by Toni Hickman): Indeed/ for me/ I must proceed and shine bright like the sun / even though I know the darkness will come/ it’s all temporary/ I can be legendary/ ’cause I will never stop believing in me/ it doesn’t matter what you think I should be / see I am what I am / I’m the truth / I’m disabled / I’m amazing understand / don’t you ever under-rate me see I got a second chance / and I choose to be the greatest in whatever the plan is /

Breakdown (Performed by Toni + georgetragic) – On my life right/ I ignite like/ a ka-boom when I step in the room / so please don’t get distracted / yes my limbs are fractured / still I rise from the ashes.

Chorus (Performed by Toni Hickman) I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you / I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you

Verse 3 (Performed by Keith Jones)- On ya mark get set /da pistol pops / I’m out da blocks / hit da ground runnin / no legs they dazed / form of human been born to do it / dats why i be so smooth / while i do it from lead position / watch how we keep it movin / usin ya lack of intuition / presumin my condition / predicts fez limits bs / I arrive they arise / transform eyes to the sky / as ashes fall while the phoenix rise

Verse 4 (Performed by georgetragic) – Lead with example and do everything in life I see / a simple thing like riding a bike, We are alike; how is that? Enlighten me / there’s so much fight in me / cause my superpower; it makes me different there’s light in me! / Wait, how many obstacles I gotta break? / How many fights I gotta face? / Just to make you feel my fate / I shake, then I breakdown yeah / Then I take all the weight down
Chorus (Performed by Toni Hickman) I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you / I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you

Verse 5 (Performed by Toni Hickman): People make fun of what they don’t understand/ Look at me ‘cause I’m different and can’t do what they can/ but belittle me you won’t/ because I am what I am/ I am amazing/ a different pill in which your brain cannot cram/ I’m different/ Often inspired by pain/ inflicted by the inhumane/ with hearts as black as the grain/ My disability is silent/ but my bottled up rage/ got me running from my dreams 100 miles with one leg/ So how dare you/ try to remind me/ that I don’t fit into your perception/ How dare you/ define me/ I’m beyond what you see as perfection.

Chorus (Performed by Toni Hickman) I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you / I’m a rising phoenix / I’ll rise above you
