about

Featuring Eau Claire, Wisconsin alternative rock band FM Down, this remix of their single "All The Things You Wish You Were" (the acoustic version) represents the BUNKS reinterpretation in the Hip Hop format.

lyrics

i'm feeling like a man down, ran down to the thin of things,
never thought I'd let this life get the best of me,
the rest of me is sitting' here poised for redemption,
i am not the standard, i was born for exemption,
a star on my grind, get my shine in the moon light,
i'd rather make my days to the middle of your nights,
i take my life and i bear it for dissection,
and never once have i asked for your correction,
and now i'm staying here, praying i don't disappear,
running from my fate but karma keeps it crystal clear,
drinking' through my better years and yes i know i'm messing up,
but i control my fate and i'm not sipping from a silver cup,
not eating' from a silver spoon or living' off a trust fund,
nothing for a rainy day, i never had a college fund,
i'm living through this music every day you know i'm having fun,
looking for the lime light, i know i'm not the only one.

all the things you wish you were - go think about it,
locked inside your TV screen? - go read about it,
we all in this struggle together so go marinate,
and all the things we wish we were will emanate.

before i stepped behind this mic, i had some different words to say,
but i threw them all away because i almost lost my life today,
so let me savor this moment and own it and ponder components,
of a life beyond this place we see, a life beyond these things we be,
and all the things we wish we were, grass is greener over there?
but is it really? seems so silly, all the fat and never filling,
all this hate and all this killing, all these layers I am peeling,
i will find the truth behind, the pain, the cancer, all the lies,
i will not stop until i die, i will not pause until we rise,
above the bullshit i despise that holds us down and dampers life,
everything that's coming down, break the chains and all our bounds,
from the coke to the crown to the pills to the pounds,
to the paper to the pen to the mic to the crowd,
all the things you wish you were, go think about it,
locked inside your TV screen? go read about it,
put our trust into these silly things, forget about it,
look inside and find all the things you wish you were.

all the things you wish you were - go think about it,
locked inside your TV screen? - go read about it,
we all in this struggle together so go marinate,
and all the things we wish we were will emanate.
