Nobody From Nowhere

from Modern Day Griot by J.Smo of BUNKS



A nobody from nowhere trying to rise above everything
The alcohol, the know-it-alls, the debbie downers and all the fiends
Please believe I give it all with no expectations to receive
You have your freedom to perceive, I have my mission to retrieve
All the knowledge I can while I roam this land
Observe the situations, help where I can
Give a little hope, spark a big fire
Some even say, to them, I inspire
That keeps me going, for them I keep flowing
Even when it's rough, that keeps me growing
Branches to the tree, deep with the roots
Sinking in this sand with these mud covered boots
I will stand right here, I will fight till the end
My weapon my words, my sword is my pen
My pad is my shield, my passion my fuel
I will carve my own lane, yes rewrite the rules
Save an era raised by tools from turning into fools
Because these crazy court jesters acts so mumbling cool
Hold it down for Founders with every breath I take
the soul inside in this man is one you cannot break

On the out looking in, bird's eye view
Collect my thoughts, wait for the cue
Analyze scatter, recognize patterns
Put more thought into what really matters
Time is so precious, spend it so reckless
Exercise patience but we too restless
what we going to do? who we going to see? where we want to go? who we want to be?
I'm in this for the slow burn, I simply wait for my turn
So much mojo in this music guaranteed to straighten perms
It's time to let it go fam, slip into the Brougham
And ride on out to Do or Die, Po Pimpin for the slow jam
Windy City down to Tennessee, fly away with that Cali breeze
Elevate my frequency so frequently come fly with me
Soaring through this atmosphere, see the picture oh so clear
Everything I hold so near is driving me to smash my fears
Open up and just pour it out
Mix it with the kick drum, make the bass loud
EQ mids, that fader comes down
Sparking up flames deep underground
Bringing Unmatched Noise Knowledge and Sounds...BUNKS
