BIGGER THAN YOU is about the inability to escape who you really are; you can try as hard as you want to try to conform to the standards of others, and yet, who you naturally are is going to insist on leading your life. In other words, we cannot hide from ourselves – not for too long. Eventually, we have to face ourselves, we have to face our gifts, we have to face our darkness, we have to face our potential, we have to face fear in the eye and not let it control us. The hope is that everyone can enjoy their experience of life that is only felt inside our body. to live inside of our body. experiencing life from within.
COURTROOM HEADTRIP: This song raises awareness about toxic connections as a form of unhealthy love. Domestic Violence is more common than we might realize* (see facts and resources below “Lyrics”), so it’s important to understand more deeply the dynamic of two people in a toxic relationship. The bottom line is that the people who are hurting need a hug, need love, need compassion, need understanding, and need deep healing. By educating ourselves on common relationship patterns, this might lead us to what we all want: True Love and Connection that feels healthy to both parties and that enhances the lives of both parties. In this song, MICALL sings “we both couldn’t win” because everyone loses out on the love and connection they’re wanting — the “abuser”, the “victim”, and the “victim shamers”. What might help everyone win so that they experience healthy love and healthy relationships? Something to think about.
