Transcript

  • 1. “Bigger than You”
    A rap by Will Regan,
    Inspired by Mountains beyond Mountains
  • 2. Listen here, son,
    you’ve got to learn.
    Where I come from,
    ain’t nothing getting done.
  • 3. I look left
    and see a dead baby,
    dropped by the world
    for being too lazy.
    To my right,
    a momma in blood.
    picks up her child
    and fall back in the mud.
  • 4. Up above,
    the Heavens are crying.
    Their love cannot keep
    people from dying.
    To my back—
    a place of disease,
    but which is worse:
    Ignorance or TB?
  • 5. People of the world,
    you gotta feel
    the pain and corruption
    in order to heal.
    The dirt is littered
    with raw graffiti,
    a bloody mixture,
    the texture of Haiti.
  • 6. Stop being stupid!
    Stop being a tool!
    Don’t be one of those
    selfish fools
    who sits back
    while illness attacks.
    Boy, this shit is
    badly out of wack.
  • 7. Do you hear the heartbeat
    of the dying wife?
    Do you taste the passion
    of fighting for one’s life?
    Is the Golden Rule
    in your heart?
    Can you feel the rhythm?
    Are you ready to start?
  • 8. With my head held high
    and eyes on the sky,
    I’ma feel the beat
    and recognize
    that on this path
    my soul will ignite,
    absorb the heat,
    fight for what’s right.
  • 9. So I’ma start walking,
    doing my part.
    Sure ain’t much,
    but at least it’s a start.
    I’ll help people
    while my body is grooving.
    Even in adversity,
    I’ll never stop moving!
  • 10. Rap this song, brother,
    & feel the fire.
    Take an overdue cue
    from the choir.
    One—Two—
    This is bigger than you.
