Bigger Than Myself

from Soul Rebel Music by BUNKS



I’m looking for some help, this is bigger than myself,
This is bigger than the memories we keep on the shelf,
Making music for our people with the cards that we’re dealt,
Everyday we bring it to you like we got nothing else.

One day at a time, rhyme after rhyme,
All I got in life are my feelings, these lines,
All I got to give is these words, inspiration,
Positive views to uplift the situation,
Every day I do every thing that I can,
Dream about the plan, sculpt a miracle with hands,
Expand mindframes with the voices in my head,
Find it hard to sleep when alone in my bed,
I fight every day to keep breaths above water,
Step into the field and you’re gonna get slaughtered,
Dodgin’ all these shots from the world’s cold shoulder,
When it rains, it pours, the drops are size of boulders,
Can you feel it ‘cause I feel it, something like a rumble,
The BUNKS have come to soothe you, keep the egos humble,
Its bigger than ourselves, these boys are on a mission,
Its bigger than the biggest sized dream you could vision.

This is bigger than my enemies that hinder me,
This is about those who befriended me, kin to me, and always give they all to see,
That Gro keep living life like the Army,
Be all that I can be and never sweat the ones that harm me,
The ones alarmed to see the passion burning in my eyes,
That know I won’t stop until this dream is realized,
If the sky is the limit, then I stay aiming high,
You can have the corner office, this is my sky rise,
See the sunshine glow, another brighter sunrise,
But the sun ain’t so sweet when you’ve never known the night,
Your life ain’t the same without the ones who give you light,
The ones that hold you down and help you keep your dreams in sight,
The ones who call your phone to make sure you’re getting along,
The ones who give you reason to keep making songs,
The ones whose very being is the reason you exist,
The ones, when they’re gone, you know they’ll be missed.

All I got in life are is kids with different mamas,
One is my queen and the other brings the drama,
Callin’ me a bad father, chips away at my honor,
But the truth is understood by my son and my daughter,
I give it all with every breath that I take,
Addicted to this excess we need to moderate
Conflicted by these messages they feed us to taste,
Give your scraps to the dogs when you’re finished with the plate,
So much pain to digest, they ask me how I do it?
Its bigger than myself, I give my life to BUNKS music,
Raise these people out the dumps, give ‘em some amusement,
Give ‘em something for they spirit, hard times we get through it,
I got my mic, I got my pen, I got my pad, let’s go,
Therapy in these lines, let’s go, just flow,
We got no control, so don’t waste your grip,
This is bigger than ourselves, this is bigger than this ship.
