Eaten Alive

"Eaten Alive" is a visual representation of the original song written, composed and recorded by Terry Blade. Produced by Ryini Beats and Terry Blade, the lyrics were drawn from Terry's personal self-reflections on self-identity. The song features two representations of Terry's inner voice--a grown-up version and an inner-child version. These voices speak in unison about how one's internal struggles with self-confidence, self-identity and self-empowerment can eat them alive.
