New MV from Hydroponikz – “More”

Although it’s been a while, Hydroponikz is promoting a single off his year old album Grown, with the song “More”. This track is for those with dreams and aspirations beyond the part time grind. Although the video lacks any stylistic punch, it still portrays the narrative of the lyrics fairly well.

‘Cause every single thought that I give it
Turns into dreams and I think that I’ll live it
And as the world turns I don’t wanna turn with it
‘Cause I know I’m more than this. More than this
‘Cause every single day be the same ‘ol
And I know there’s many more miles I can go
Not gonna be just a regular day, no
It’s gotta be more than this. More than this

This is the story of the coffee shop waitress who
Says an order taker is something that she ain’t just
Or a baker, she wants to rip off the apron
Manager’s checks are fat but she still hates him
And she’s takin’ the orders, makin’ the orders
Customers at 9am, yeah she hates all them
Especially that man at the front of the line
She tells him “Can you please give me your order one at a time”
But of course he’s in a rush and says it all at once and
He yells at her loud when she forgets one of the muffins
Well F this, I’m not dealin’ with this anymore
Tears fallin’ to the floor, storms out of the door
At home, she pulls the guitar out from under the bed
She’s never took lessons, she’s teaching herself instead
And if that was the right choice, well it’s hard to say
The bright voice says “I’m gonna be a star someday”

‘Cause every single thought that I give it
Turns into dreams and I think that I’ll live it
And as the world turns I don’t wanna turn with it
‘Cause I know I’m more than this. More than this
‘Cause every single day be the same ‘ol
And I know there’s many more miles I can go
Not gonna be just a regular day, no
It’s gotta be more than this. More than this

This is the story of the production assistant who
Is on the set, but he feels he makes no difference
Because he is creative but ain’t nobody listenin’
Producer is a diva and her bitchin’ is persistent
Every morning he’s gotta go get her breakfast
‘Cause she don’t do the drive through, not with her Lexus, no
Start at the bottom, moving up someday
But he’s way too talented for an intern’s pay
He’s had it up to here, the last straw, he was beat and
She asked if him “Can you stay late and come in on the weekend?
“We can’t pay you extra, it isn’t in the budget”
He said “That’s because you spend it all on your lunches”
And quits. Now he turns his camera on
Wants to learn to make videos and write his own songs
And if that was the right choice, well it’s hard to say
The bright voice says “I’m gonna be a star someday”

‘Cause every single thought that I give it
Turns into dreams and I think that I’ll live it
And as the world turns I don’t wanna turn with it
‘Cause I know I’m more than this. More than this
‘Cause every single day be the same ‘ol
And I know there’s many more miles I can go
Not gonna be just a regular day, no
It’s gotta be more than this. More than this

I’m not the person that you think I am
A yo, I’m just gonna be, just gonna be me
I’m just tryin’ to do the best I can
A yo, I just wanna be, just wanna be free
I’m just a man I follow my own plan
I don’t give a god damn bout what you want me to be
So I’m a just do my thing and
Pray to god that I don’t lose my wings, I’m more than this

So, now our former coffee shop waitress, she
Is on the path and tryin’ hard to make it
No regret but she wonders if she’s mistaken
Ain’t a star yet, but she knows she gotta fake it
Pushin’ her demo cuts, it’s rough up in the business
But she likes it more than workin’ day and night for tips
So far, she’s glad she ain’t fillin’ no more cups
She’d never go back but dreams of makin’ star.. bucks
So, now our former production assistant,
Uploadin’ videos, views and hits are consistent
Hears her songs and is very impressed.
Suggests that they collaborate to demonstrate what they’ve been blessed with
Relentless world, this guy and girl
Are out to take it on together, yeah it’s now or never
‘Cause I know you got dreams of livin’ on top
He takes her hand and says “let’s give it a shot, lets go!”
