Lyrics

(Let's go)

(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)

(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be so much more than this...)

(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be so much more...)

(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be so much more...)

I hear my name blow through the wind
Temptation to chase but who knows where it goes
I don't have a choice, the race begins
Leaving behind a life that nobody chose

One foot after the other
We will find our way through
One day after another
Come on and let it rip

I've gotta be so much more than this
And I'm gonna try
I'm cool in a twisted kind of bliss
With saying good-bye

'Cause I can't look back
No more turning back
'Til I find my way back home, and I know
I've gotta be so much more than this
But what can I be if not me?

(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be...)
(I've gotta be so much more...)

I feel the pressure raining down
Like a hand on my heart that's stopping me to breathe
You were never the one to let me down
Now you ripped up my heart, I don't want to believe

One foot after the other
It will all become clear
One day after another
And sing it with me now

I've gotta be so much more than this
And I'm gonna try
I'm cool in a twisted kind of bliss
With saying good-bye

'Cause I can't look back
No more turning back
'Til I find my way back home, and I know
I've gotta be so much more than this
But what can I be if not me?

You can't map out my destiny
Gotta be lost before I can be found
Drop the guitar

(Guitar solo)

One foot after the other (One foot after the other)
We will find our way through (we will find our way through)
One day after another (one day after another and another)

I've gotta be so much more than this
And I'm gonna try
I'm cool in a twisted kind of bliss
With saying good-bye

'Cause I can't look back
No more turning back
'Til I find my way back home, and I know
I've gotta be so much more than this
But what can I be if not me?

(Guitar solo)

No compromise
Be true

Miscellaneous

  • In an attempt to both involve fan participation and generate promotion for Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and the theme's release, a poll was held on Bentley Jones' official website where visitors were able to decide on what the final cover to the So Much More... EP would look like. Each featuring Bentley in a different pose playing for the camera, the fourth option proved to be the winner.
  • After the release of the mini-album, a competition was held where fans were to make their own music video to the title track for a variety of SUMO Digital-themed prizes, and to appear in the official "So Much More" music video. While winners were chosen and prize packs were sent out, the music video was never produced, as many of the entries featured Sonic the Hedgehog and other Sega-related characters, the legal complications of clearing them all to appear being much more than the Remix Factory was willing to handle.
