Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro

---> Play Riff 1 over:

Nick:

Fire is my method for destruction

Leaving charred wreakage from my latest eruption

Unpredictable, my erratic demeanor

Bobbing and weaving as my mind gets leaner

Though I'm trippin' on legs that stumble but I don't fall down

You know I'm singing out things you mumble from a lack of resound

Pissed off mist lifts to honesty

Now come down motherfucker with your philosophy

---> Play Riff 2 over:

SA:

I'm at ease when I feel there's a breeze

Give me a little please

Aristotle I'm not but think of Socrates

So are you ready for your lesson blood?

Democratic non erratic Socratic method

We'll take away the pain

We'll pacify the bullshit built up in your brain

In times of change or the same old thangs

As you maintain or rearrange

---> Play Chorus over:

Both:

Can't nobody do it like 311

Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none

Steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up

Electricity we store it up

Can't nobody do it like 311

Break it down, what it is, dedication

Sending out gratitude like we laid it out on Down

Throw down fuck the bullshit we're still the sound

---> Play Riff 1 over:

SA:

Wild and lost speed mad

A long way from sad

Lookin' good like you should you're bad

An itinerant dimension is your spirit see

Like color absolute bodiless indeed

Casual kindred spirit past

All the obstacles you're dealin' with at last

The nasdaq, two puppies, baby needs new shoes

Car alarms, your rent, wedding bells, the blues

---> Play Riff 2 over:

Nick:

The tragic fucking comedy that was last night

Unfolds to my inner devils sheer delight

A pointless fucking banter in an endless bout

With whiskey soaked frolic room tobacco mouth

Then a sickening trip to what I call the elitist cesspool

Beckoning all the sycophants and defeated yes-fools

Hung over, broke, and a round of apologies

Now come down Martinez with the modern mythology

---> Play Chorus over:

Both:

Can't nobody do it like 311

Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none

Steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up

Electricity we store it up

Can't nobody do it like 311

Break it down, what it is, dedication

Sending out gratitude like we laid it out on Down

Throw down fuck the bullshit we're still the sound

---> Play Bridge

---> Play Outro over:

Both:

Can't nobody do it like 311

Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none

Steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up

Electricity we store it up
