Down
Chill. light on my sight as my ego becomes
A funky child with some words on my tongue
Be like intake of breath and my mouth gets loose
While I scatter my spit I dream of juice
Have you ever made out in dark hallways
Displayed a kiss that made your day or say
Play a track from your record collection
It's your mix, congratulations

We've changed a lot and then some some
Know that we have always been down down
And if I ever didn't thank you you
Then just let me do it now

I bet you light up when we start the show follow me now
Very closely because I told you so you know
We glow because we throw sun rays
We be freaky and we wanna stay

Chorus

Lightning strikes yo we be in that violent force of light
Guaranteed to turn it out as bad as dolemite
'cuz we're dope kid change like a chameleon
And the channel whenever that wack show real world is on
You know we dazzle like ghetto box boomin' battles
Rattle inside your head feel redeemed like cola bottles
Fall in love with you teachers on the wax
We are self made check the technique 311 in la

Chorus

Keep my feet on the ground
Keep my head in the clouds
Electrified by the sound
Comes from the down
And

Chorusback to top
Random
Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy
Go back rocket man into the sky you'll see
Hear it all the time, come back rewind
Aliens are watching up in the sky
Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy

Sound boy when you come round
Sound boy won't you stay
No one gonna harm you
The all want you to play

I watch the birds of prey that
Hunt the canyon below my house
Looking for a meal like a lizard or a mouse
I wonder if they appreciate the setting like me
To control your own direction choose to be free
And I reserve the right to be as trite as I want
And you can lick but don't bite
I toss you here to vermont
I kick it lickety split
And hand it to the man in the tan van
And as for you and your crew I don't hate you

Peace is my priority 'cuz marley said for sure-ity
Just what do you think I'm doin'?
I'm not just here for screwin'
Yo and if it's sore take care of it
Perhaps from too much stucking
But anytime you're aware of it then keep on fucking

You know we cool
Hey hey isn't that random?
When we come bout people get ready
Hey hey isn't that random, gonna freak do it national
Sound boy gonna rock you
People rock steady
Hey hey isn't that random?

To be the one who has it all is not that hard
And I'll be that type of dude in a funky car
I dream of a suit that will fit my rhyme
When I recognize my girl from a former life

I love it when the only sound that I hear
Is your infectious laughter
I will hear you again in 800 years
If I'm still lucky

Go north on outpost then take a left on mull-holland
To me that's where I like it and macapa drive is callin'

I get up to the sun and then I stretch out
Beginning to look like summer
And I'm down with no doubt. (swing)

Chorus

I break a silly peace for offering
Rap weasel then I'm boffering
I'd give you an exclusive on my playlist
The thought and styles I kick are from a random hat pick
That's why most radio will never play this tell 'em again

Me a rude boy from omaha, nebraska
Sick as a porno flick yet gold as precious laughter
Many don't agree but we can't care about that
'cuz we're never gonna wear the old hat, spokenback to top
Jackolantern's Weather
Well I beat a bad rap when I skip a soul trap
Just trippin' and laughin' at the crap
Dap is what I get the best skins that I hit
You know we rock the fuckin' joint and we split
Singin' an ryhmin's what I'm better for
When I describe I'm a scribe with a metaphor
I use a simile lightly 'cuz that shits played
The common way most ryhmes are made, ya know
I rock like this I flow like that
But all those comparisons are just that
Kickin' different styles I'll be right here
Today, tomorrow, next week and next year
I always say what I feel and that is a promise
Nothing in life is above being honest
Sauna is cool compared to being on stage
But that's how it's gotta go in the stone age

The fame in my game I name rapture
Like a polished rock I'll make it shine for sure
Word is that I've traveled become unraveled
I been around the world baby gimme an apple
I'll be your boogie man rather than son-of-sam
What I am is what I am
Though we don't have too long to love a day a night
We only love those who, love us right back

The kid is smart the kid is clever
Stompin' in jack-o-lantern's weather
Backpack strapped 'cuz the world is cold
Headphones pumpin' don't ya know

The kid is smart the kid is clever
Stompin' in jack-o-latern's weather
Rocks his hood and plays it mellow
While maple leaves change into yellow

And oh shit damn honey at it again
Tryin' to beat my high score since the age of ten
See my high score flash on the back glass
I was malcontented doug in gifted class
Now here's the deal we came to heal we gonna rock in rio
Oh no it's not a joke it's how we feel
Put to test like a sugar ray scientist
I'm always dancing in my sunday best
I'm betting on my bliss and my path is lit' see
The microphone is live and I'm rockin' my body
Smooth like reggie miller in an airborne freeze frame
Funky like the kung-fu that can put you to shame

Chorus

I'm like hey wait a minute
Give a check on two then I'm ready to begin it
With a boom boom bap coming outta your trunkies
Give a fat shout out to the phunk junkeez
Striken like a cancer taken chances
But I love to see the girl windin' like the belly dancer
Standin' up front with a tight stomach showin
Me on stage singin, flowin
We just kickin' it live we just kickin' it live
'cuz if you can't kick it live you gonna die
'fraid so punk so quit talkin' junk
You need a live show like a ball player needs a dunkback to top
All Mixed Up
You've got to trust your instinct
And let go of regret
You've got to bet on yourself now star
'cause that's your best bet

Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
We come with the funky style
That gets us known for the show
And we'll mix the hip hop reggae if we say it is so
And fuck the naysayers cause they don't mean a thing
'cause this is what style we bring

Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
There's something I need to get off my chest
And no matter what may come to shine
The dream will always be mine

All mixed up you don't know what to do
Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But the first could be the last so just get off your ass
All mixed up you don't know what to do
Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But you know this will pass so just get off your ass

You've got to trust your instinct and let go of regret
You've got to bet on yourself now star
'cause that's your best bet

Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
Sick sick bit got to have it
Like bustin' in on a session but you got to call it quits
Sick sick bit just can't quit
Fact that you don't even know makes it fully legit

Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
There's something I need to get off my chest
And no matter what may come to shine
The dream will always be mine

You keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning,
Keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning,
Keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning,
Keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill 'dem stunning,

You make me nervous throat dry
My brain is empty don't know why
But I saw you doing something
Which is really truly nothing
But you could bust me out all day

Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do
Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do

And why did I try when I knew it was no and
Why did I try when I saw it was so
But save it for late we should just let it skate
Cause the waiting feel is fineback to top
Hive
Coming like a nightmare word like I'm gonna go for it
Fuckin' around what ya got to show for it?
Let it be know that I'm in the zone
And whatever I need I just pick up the phone
'cuz I'm true with it and you're new with it
I just swing the thing and then I'm through with it
I don't need friends to act like foes
'cuz I'm nick hexum the one who knows
'cuz it takes two and we swings better than you
Then it's time for the dub so we roll out the club
And you know just what I do
I'm hitting in the freak mode
Puttin' on a load sippin' on a guinny
Then lo and behold una vision from bottom to top
And I just can't stop
311 show them the air is rarified
But you don't give a damn 'cuz the groove is hellafied
Grew up punk, listen to funk
I'm a hyper type of fella that does not touch junk
You're the back of the pack and the bottom of the stack
That's what you get when you're steady talkin' shit
Not goin' for self that shit is on the shelf
It's 95 and we go for the hive

Listen up this you're gonna bump to this
And if I'm feelin' mean I'm gonna clutch my fist
Now when I say mean, I mean I'm gonna rock it
You're gonna find out kid I'm bout to shock it
When I'm on I'm gone I hear the beat that spawns
The way we freak it and we kick up a storm
The day we turn to pop the show will stop
So feel the beat and get lost now

Back to part 2 the hard way we play
Sublime on time to all the fans I'm sa
And if you don't know I say check the show
Do what you got to on the dance flo
Some say the style is wack but I say fuck that

Get the hell back and watch us rock the set
We cast the mold bust it cold explode
Megatrendsetters known around the globe
Friends takin' you where you never been
We done what we wanted craftin' poems
You can rock there is a glow around you
Lose control holmes just like we do
Hard to obtain brotha' what's my name
Mad to find unlike ya mamma and your masquerade
I drive a mach-1 no dashboard jesus
I hear voices say that's doug martinez

You're all up in my mix like fuckin' betty crocker
You think you're playing me but actually you're a jocker
You bad mouth me bitch man you givin me juice
It ain't nothin' but a party everybody get loose
Notice what I don't do when stress steps to me
Whatever your complaint so sue me
I say fuck the naysayers and keep goin
Gotta do what I gotta do to get the people glowin'
So let everybody gather the more the better
I represent the traveler him he's a shredder

At ease with yourself and don't try to please me
I'm just here today then quickly I'm out
On the town one light I'm a glow worm
For several hours wiggle jiggle like I'm a huge sperm
Can't appreciate a brothers love of funky music
You think I'm a silly rabbit 'cuz my style has tricks
Of the way I feel now I just got to rock
The music be poppin through me like electric shocks
I think and blink and I wink but that shits not tiny
'cuz in a blink of an eyelash you will not find me

You're the back of the pack and the bottom of the stack
That's what you get when you're steady talkin' shit
Not goin' for self that shit is on the shelf
'cuz it's 95 and we go for the hiveback to top
Guns (are For Pussies)
Here comes the thunder down under, we're natural wonders
Night falls when weleave all you feel is the hunger
Sunrises of people all shapes and sizes
Dig onthe decade and realize it's funky
No matter this rude boy stll got that swagger
My ears have heard all these crews but we're badder Interracial, special,
positive beings I am I be a cool awakwening
It's getting hectic the metrics thebody electric
Everybody in worn out blue jeans or tacky dresses
This is the citywe've reached we've come to
Go unrecognized on the corner or make moves
All thelights are red all the poets are dead
A familiar nightmare appears in my head
Times are a changin' myself I'm rearrangin'
Dream eight-thousand-five-twelve allblazin'
Born to act out,
Paranoid with a gat
Born to act out,
Think you knowwhere it's at
Born to act out,
But you're lookin' like a sissie
Born to act out,
Guns are for pussies I'm not from Philly but some say I'm a blunt
That's justthe way I am and no I'm not going to front
And yes I took a trip to find outabout the ways of big
City seedy bars and drugs that make you feel shitty
Prettyolder women in skirts conversation frisky
Stinking cigarettes and plenty ofbourbon whisky
Sad classical music on the jukebox of doom Hollywood Blvd.
Barflyfrolic room
Tomb of lost souls some beyond salvage
Some just having fun openingsteam valvage I was one becoming
the other hellbent to discover
Had to pull upthe reigns or else smother
Take it brother all the way and then you're scared
Don't want to be unprepared
You're getting paranoid,
And then guns are shared
You guys think you're hard,
But you're in fear of getting harmed
I fear no manand
I am unarmedback to top
Misdirected Hostility
Not I'm not the type to just act like I know
Puttin on an angle putting on a show
Speaking on nothing makes you a stunt
I'll tell you right here yo I don't front
I cross the t's and skip nonlegitimacies
Or else please
I cannot handle all the negative vibe merchants
Is that all you have in you per chance
So much angst an pain it's so wack
You should take a tip from the one frank black
Play some pachinko play some parcheesi
Cause all the angst shit is just cheesy

It's the 311 bliss too smooth for pissed
Lyrics talkin loud again
Yeah we are the party men
Cosmetics that you fretted
We sport the high asthetic
Here go rap kickin the dazzled crazy mathematic
I am what I am mix some old school jams onto tape cuz the
Party's in the crates I scan step into the realm
What you gonna do
Get the party people something funky to listen to

Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see

Bodyrock pop and lock here's an example
Boulevard chrome beats always ampin your temple
Punks get got in the age of hip hop
It's just begun like stolen bikes on the blacktopborn to sing a lyric
Immaculately concepted
No strain in your game if your game is respected
Come as you are radio star
Drown out the hatred with a rhyme
An electric guitar dispatched when rap shattered
The glass of radio access

May we turn some soul on their rhythmless dances
You know the time and they'll know the scoop
They'll say it was a rhyme and a beat of a rap group

Your rhymes have been outmoded
Your rhymes have been outmoded
Your rhymes have been outmoded
Your rhymes have been outmoded

Your rhymes have been outmoded
So just quityourbellyachin'
You're saying that your tortured
Give me a fuckin break and
Maybe take out the source
Of your disparing what do I mean
Kick the fuckin heroin
I speak from experience
Because I didn't see clearly once
Acting like I dunce
In 1989 I was cocaine and jim beam
But now it's 95 and I'm ginseng

Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
Misdirected hostility, that's what you got seeback to top
Purpose
I believe in your purpose baby
Coming up to the surface and maybe
I'll never see you again then again who knows
Make me quiver hands will shiver
Still got all the things that I woulda give her
Yeah, yeah but it's slow going
Something's showing yeah, yeah

Love is a stream that will find it's own course
Making due is a thing a thing I will do no more

Whenever you come back I'll be waiting
Trifling the slack no head gating
This is all pure fiction you know that's right
Just pure fiction that's all right

I believe in your purpose baby
Coming up to the surface and maybe
I'll never see you again then again who knows
Make me quiver hands will shiver
Still got all the things that I woulda give her
But it's slow going something's showing
Yeah, yeahback to top
Loco
Hey you got to step outside to see what's going on
Hey you can't run and hide when the 'psybin trip is on
Not like this have you seen such green
A spot like this becomes serene
I'm glad your here I have no fear

We trip the 'shrooms fantastic
And shit gets drastic elbow pull and kick
We trip the 'shrooms fantastic
'n sit gets drastic, check it out

Right now my brain is fragile
But you seem so agile we'll make it in tea
And we'll see what there is to see

Chorus

Make an instrumental add a little vocal
Take to the stage and make the people go loco
Make an instrumental add a little vocal
Take to the stage and make the people go loco

Boom boom you got the spinning of the room
Quite right you got the breaking of the light
Boom boom you got the spinning of the room
Quite right you got the breaking of the light
Ad the sun and the moon and the spinning of the room
It does to my sight what the prism does to light

You're quicker than me ridiculous see
You come follow me get lobotomy
You're quicker than me ridiculous see
You come follow me get lobotomy

Chorus

Brodels
Ooh you know we pepper you
With a sonic assault side step a you
I cannot think of a better way
That we could celebrate freedom
Than make up a set of goals and cold beat 'em
See dumb verbal tags like audio spaghetti
Give a shout to the one they call yeti
I bet he put the cabash on any foes whatsoever
Like original brodel trevor
Positive vibe merchant grandson of lord buckley
Scotish ralston shows up if you're lucky
Ad raspler the sweed a friend in deed
He's keeping an eye on the other guy's greed
These are 311 characters I dubbed everyone
The story ain't over but my rhyme is done

It was the year that I first touched ground
So I grabbed the microphone and I got down
Just like james brown gather round of our sight and sound
Pound for pound we throw down rather profound
I'll put you in another world I can't hear you
Like having phone sex with a deaf girl
No doubt we got the jams that'll smack ya
I penned three books of lyrics 2 for action 1 for backup
'cuz I'm a cold rockin' brother got transistor tunes
And it feels real good to get close to you

The brodels is the nazz and the nazz knows where it's at
The brodels is the nazz who knows a cat who can feed a cat
The goal is to be a poet and a carpenter
To be one who loves to be one who works
The nazz not something that can be given
The brodel is inside you it comes from within
When I feel into the sea
When the world came and kissed me
Transformed my shit told the shark I was a dolphin
Swam quick funny though
Parranahs chilled and laughed at
The way that I took off my polka dots on top of that
The wales know I'm quick watch out
And I get funky fresh as for the fishes I'm lit luminous
I'm not nouveau techno I glow like a glacial
In skin that swims faster than speed
I am I be dropped out of nothing I will return to nothing
Rotate my style my rhyme my way magician of a rythm
Lover of animals damn I wanna hear 'em
Aquatic my way I got soul shape

Well I'm 6 foot 3 and like mohammed ali
I float like a butterfly and sting like poison ivy
Drive a 69 lincoln suicide doors
Around the town I'm slinking fat subs of course
We're the greatest show on earth
You know we turn it out daily
In and out of town like barnum and bailey
I know that is a simile but I couldn't resist
From solomon roadie for the pj's
I don't think he'll be pissed
I eat a cobb salad, smoked fish, duck, or clam chowder
Chill with indica and guinness
Steer clear of white powder
I run into my brother give him a pound and a yodel
They know my word is bond talkin' bout the brodels

The brodels is the nazz and the nazz knows where it's at
The brodels is the nazz who knows a cat who can feed a cat
The goal is to be a poet and a carpenter
To be one who loves to be one who works
The nazz not something that can be given
The brodel is inside you it comes from within

And we're fresh dude just check my man p
He said I will not muddle my mind with impertinency
Lost a lot in vegas plays a lot of sega
Saw a phrase that he likes and put it on his leg
And we're fresh dude just check my man d he said

Comin' in ruff and tuff all systems are tweakin'
People all over the world they must be thinkin'
All the shit that we kickin' our shoes must be stinkin'back to top
Don't Stay Home
Life could slip away in absent minded numbness
I'm only sayin this 'cuz I wish for the best
When you always stay in self-incarceration
I thinks it's such a shame

Don't stay home this time no don't stay home
If he don't have to he don't want to
Don't stay home this time no don't say no

Oh how I'd like to diffuse your time bomb anger
It's screaming danger danger this kind of world
Don't care if you're home so you better get some

Don't stay home this time no don't stay home
If he don't have to he don't want to
Don't stay home this time no don't say no

Everything I'm sayin' you can dismiss
Because I sat alone on this past christmas
I deserved to be alone
But I guess I should have gone home

Hey don't break the mold kid just eat around it
Yeah that's what I did
I'll be running around the block
For no apparent reason
Somethin' you'll catch me doin' in any season
Gotta break a sweat man gotta go bust out
Biddy by by by by
Good-bye to the drout, yea

Don't stay home this time no don't stay home
If he don't have to he don't want to
Don't stay home this time no don't say no

Don't stay home this time no don't stay home
If he don't have to he don't want to
Don't stay home this time no don't stay homeback to top
DLMD
Don't let me down, don't let me down again
Don't let me down, don't let me down again
Don't let me down, don't let me down again
Don't let me down, don't let me down again

Swelled up eye's oh my the girl got beat
And the stupid motherfucker who made you think so
That punk is a coward let that be told
I hear voices in the night that are electric
He kicks the shit out of her because he's heartless
She won't leave she has low self esteem
He's got gravitational pull
Sucks her body till her heart and her limbs grow cold

Hang in there use your head
How can I love you after you're dead
Hang in there keep trying
How can I love you after dying

Here's what you got to tell him
I'm thinking of a picture that's keeping me in stitch
You're causing me a mental glitch
'cause jealousy is such a bitch
I hereby emancipate myself from that
You can consider yourself free to flirt and chat
With whoever you want
It should have always been that way
The way that you flaunt the way that you play
My mind is blank slate I'm pretending you're erased
You cannot let me down when I cannot see your face

Chorus

Ode to a beat up girl, I know you're out there
Stronger than you think, stand up if you care
Get up off the ground, don't let me down
Get up off the ground, don't let me down

Chorus

And you, I'm a let you pass without kicking you're ass
Because I'm above it you hurt someone I love
It takes two to make a thing go right and that's trite
But one just to sneak and weasel through the night

If you hurt her again I'll fuck you up
If you hurt her again I'll fuck you up, fuck you up
If you hurt her again I'll fuck you up
If you hurt her again I'll fuck you up, fuck you upback to top
Sweet
Take a chance n something star you gotta
All the live long day
If I had to name one thing would data
Be hard pressed to say
You can say that I'm gushy
At least you know what I think
I know that I'm lucky I know you're on the brink
You got it good good good you got it good so good
You make up ridiculous words
Which mean exactly nothing
I know just what you mean and that's the funny thing
It's understood it's understood

Buddy buddy buddy I know why you wander
Through the sweetness on the ground
The sweetness of the flowers
You make your way on a cloudy day
You've got to move
The world you prove is too sweet yeah

We parted much too soon I know but that's how it goes
There's someone better out there for you and me
Can't wait to get on the road and feel the shows
And be like phenomenon 1 and 2 and 3
I don't mean to brag and I don't mean to boast
But I'm the guy could that give you the most
It's good good good it's understood

T & P Combo
People sing about the coming of spring
But what is comin' down around it's snow or it's rain
It's insane and I'm still in the same gang
The way the weather act's it's a shame ok
Badder behavior in our shit is flavor
Grandiose endeavors yes the quest is greater
Make no mistake I know the time and I wake
I slip only when p-nut gets me baked from that shake

Yeah you can't fuck with this
You're walter middy don't take it as a dis
But the fantasy has got to end this minute
I had a fucking dream and yo now I'm in it
I've been at many function but I know I'm about the function
If someone brings you down keep punching
We bunched in a little house where conditions got squalid
But where we at now - solid

I concur time it slurs and it blurs
The vision like a drug and yo it's the word
How absurd deliver us from nerds
And funky 40 oz glass littered curbs
Soon the church pitted bell will clang
Boys on the corner mack with slang play a dice game
When I walk by it some bag lady goes sha-na-na-na

Your street time is limited 'cuz this band rocks it
Take your whole crew put 'em all in your pocket
If your feelin' sick rub it on with vicks
'n take 2 to 6 of our sweet super mix

Your street time is limited 'cuz this band rocks it
Take your whole crew put 'em all in your pocket
If your feelin' sick we got the elixir
Rub it on down with the sweet super mixer
Late night radio players late night airwave invaders
Yeah we got the force late night radio

Zooma zooma zooma yeah we got the boom
Blowin' up the spot so so give us room
We prowl sometimes we howl hysterical
When we take the stage see a miracle
I realize today nothing is more vestigial
Than the young space walkin' individual
For years and years bubbling up with soul power
To detonate this planet or reach another

Yeah we take it up a notch
We diggin' the shit so deep like ralston digs scotch
Botch this and I'll regret it no that's not what I'm saying
Remember this instead I'm staying
We played in a little house where conditions got squalid
But where we at now - solid
We hauled a van with a rv that was a bad call
It all went up in flames but I haven't seen it all

Homey steps to me and say hey where ya goin'
Oh just headin' back to where I done my growin'
If you must go somewhere over the rainbow
The adventures of a cosmic hero
From planet to planet my tags a crater
If you're not in the future you're not here either
Labeled psychedelic we can play disco
When the going gets weird you know the weird turn pro

Your street time is limited 'cuz this band rocks it
Take your whole crew put 'em all in your pocket
If your feelin' sick rub it on with vicks
'n take 2 to 6 of our sweet super mix

Your street time is limited 'cuz this band rocks it
Take your whole crew put 'em all in your pocket
If your feelin' sick we got the elixir
Rub it on down with the sweet super mixer
Late night radio players late night airwave invaders
