Lyrics/Song Structure:


---> Play Riff 1 over:

Nod your head to this as a lot of apprentice

Some of this were standing on the shoulder of giants

Some tryants some benevolent

To the followers it's relevant

The rest get bent on lending opinions

I'm sending to a brand new level

I revel in completion I'd like to see the deletion

Of the parasites, to make your load light

Fool know rules but the rest keep bouncing back

---> Play Riff 2 over:

With the lack of further adieu see

As one can deduce we

Kick out the jams, slam the shit out hard and long

Cuz we got more song

Something you might like now

So check it

All-star bound yeah your so sound

Cool as the blue water all around

From a force field flashing aliens are sending

Black evolutions of love you are hearing

---> Play Riff 3 over:

The dark supernatural is the world we call

Our own home lightning in the mind comes out in song

But we're wild they say never trust us we're shady

In lieu of the crew your into we are baby

Cuz music will be coming out the words we speak

We erect breakbeats shatter wax still on the platter

Our shit is badder we come fly then we scatter

Cuz we deep and we solid yeah we hear ya holler

---> Drum Solo

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Electricity flowin' through is all that feels good

Some time the only thing that really ever could

Feed that hunger I crave it I love it I gave it

I shove it in a battery and save it for later

---> Play Riff 2 over:

A waiter in the Dorothy C. Pavilion in '89

I met some wierdos and had myself a real good time

Downtown L.A. is a soul graveyard

Where you got to be hard or get jacked

It lacked a certain sense of something

Something basic no karma in the least I broke east

You know I had to face it

I guess I flaked but it was no mistake because

311's got the boom

---> Play Riff 4 over:

My mic check is giving me Electric company

I can't see the high wide sky or stars above me

Are you a flower or more like a high rise tower

If so the soul of sweet delight on you will shower

There's a place for us they say is somewhere

Not a dream but a place and you will be there

Your slippin' but content because your spirit

And hills are alive with the sound of music

---> Play Riff 5

---> Play Riff 3 over:

People never see the whole trip of life grab

Knowledge man and all we do is syph
