Freeze Time
Are 'yall ready for 311? x2
I'd like to stay here just like this
Its just a momentary bliss
That's all we can hope for
That's a reason to cope for
This life, this life and no more

You will be immortal man
One in the hand
You will know exactly then
When you have
You found the cure
And morse codes for rapture
Get with your rhythm
Get with your nature

The moment's running down a mountian
It can be captured from a fountain
Sometimes all that it can be
Absence of agony
Presure from the lack of pain

You will be immortal man
One in the hand
You will know exactly then
When you have
You found the cure
And morse codes for rapture
Get with your rhythm
Get with your nature

Serendipitous my travels throughout time
I grab a moment like a thief and then
I make it mine
Nothing will comare to your realization
When you com to find out
Your new object of fixation

I try to freeze time try to freeze time for your mind
Perfect snapshot to always rewind
Golden buttered jam golden buttered jam for your slam
Remember it in your synapse diagram

Sweetness is your bein'
Zen human walkin'
Steppin' out from shadows
Flowin' like a breeze soft and
When dawn unveils the mornin' star risen
Feel the light feel the love you're christened
With this life not ours not for long
But for the taking take it

The birth light breaking break it
Between the light and dard is a seem
This is caving in
Mutating rearanging your soul
Changing form again

You will be immortal man
One in the hand
You will know exactly then
When you have
You found the cure
And morse codes for rapture
Get with your rhythm
Get with your nature

Serendipitous my travels throughout time
I grab a moment like a thief and then
I make it mine
Nothing will comare to your realization
When you com to find out
Your new object of fixation

I try to freeze time try to freeze time for your mind
Perfect snapshot to always rewind
Golden buttered jam golden buttered jam for your slam
Remember it in your synapse diagram

You will be immortal man
One in the hand
You will know exactly then
When you have
You found the cure
And morse codes for rapture
Get with your rhythm
Get with your natureback to top
Come Original
You got to
You got to

Come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers
Hear why
To come original it ain't nothin' strange
You got to represent you got come full range

Full range of emotion full range of styles
When you come to town you'll have them
Comin' for miles

Come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers
Hear why

Black eyed peas they comin' full range and
Nofx they comin' full range and
Roni size he comin' full range
The one mr. vegas you know it ain't easy

A warning to the crews out there who think they're hot
If you're not original rockers you will get shot
Down by the kids neglectin' your art, the stuff you did
Eventually it get so bad puts you to bed
Cuz when the lightning flashes sweet electricity
All the world then stands revealed with the clarity
Of raw voltage, briefly we see and the hope is
You'll be able to tell just what dope is

Come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers
Hear why

Funk slap bass mixed with the dancehall and
Hip-hop beats and punk guitar and
Deadly on the mic is the one sa
The name is 311 and you know it ain't easy

This is not a test there's no time to mope
How you gonna cope with radioactive isotope
And boss dj illness upon you now quickly
Infecting you fast upon the airwaves
This message brought to you by the so large system
Activate and attune yourself with meditation
And green plants they've got mad life they're sentient
They're beautiful as you and they like to dance

Everything we do we gotta come original
Put your hand up in the air and prepare for battle
Sit upon the rhythm like a tire upon a rim
We do it non-stop and then we do it again
Some a them whine and some a them bitch
They can not do it never switch
Comin' up from the heart and
Delivered with a wild pitch
Sit up on top the rhythm like a wild stallion
This is the ruling system

Come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers come original
You got to come original you got to come original
All entertainers

Large In The Margin
Large in the margin
My drama unfolds behind closed doors
Told on the down low
I believe that I'm sold
But really I don't know
Maybe it's better but I can't think so
Maybe it's better to fight
One never ever know
Believe the rumors that grow like tumors
It's more fun than the truth that we know
Trying to hard to reach a highter plain

Will fuck you up
When you least expect it
You think you're moving closer
When suddenly you wrecked it
But all the same the pain gains wisdom
As if you ain't had enough
Then you're in some
Prison of your own creation mental dilation
Look at what you're facing
Placing blame in every direction
But in the end it's your own infection

There's no way to avoid listening
You'll always end up listeing
Here's hoping the voices aren't too unkind
Here's hoping the voices are benign
It's easier when you hear it
There's no reason to fear it
Its you
You

You think they'll probally find you
Well then, you're probally right
Cuz they'll come back to remind you for eternity
Of when you gave up the fight
Somehow they always will find you
The voices in the night, every night
Keep coming back to remind you for eternity
Of when you gave up the fight

There's no way to avoid listening
You'll always end up listeing
Here's hoping the voices aren't too unkind
Here's hoping the voices are benign
It's easier when you hear it
There's no reason to fear it
Its you

Flowing
Along the way to close my eyes
I lost where I was going
The more it will spin the more that I try
To stop my mind flowing
Away away
To all that I despise
Along the way to close my eyes

You can't be let down if you don't expect the world
Expect to lay awake there by your sleeping girl
If somebody cares then there is no way you can tell
Cursed consciousness it's your private hell

Along the way to close my eyes
I lost where I was going
The more it will spin the more that I try
To stop my mind flowing
Away away
To all that I despise
Along the way to close my eyes

Tick tick tick the clock bludgeons your mind
Endlessly replaying times that were unkind
Go away sun I'm not prepared for you today
It seems you are it seems you are

Along the way to close my eyes
I lost where I was going
The more it will spin the more that I try
To stop my mind flowing
Away away
To all that I despise
Along the way to close my eyesback to top
Can't Fade Me
We bust the sound
The kids all gather round

And what's comin' from their radios
They all turn down

The creativeness
We are scientists

Move 'em with soul
Move 'em with this

When the bass kicks
We get intimate

With the music and the people
Yeah they're into it

Takin' off crusin' through the air

The sound is aerodynamic
Let me take you there

I am a cool and mellow man

Always got a plan

Copin' out problems every time I can

I'd like to be known as a great communicator

If you got beef don't save it for later

I battle evil weekly monthly yearly
But every step I take, the devil stays near me

Otherwise maintain on the globe

Just another space trippin' vato

Massive yang and yin on this earth we spin

Sometimes I gotta center find out who I am

I chill out I let in the wind

I gotta feel the pulse fo the planet on my skin

I go tnews for ya it ain't nothin' nice
We all got demon we all gotta vice
The struggle never ends
To keep it in check
But I never stop trying
To make the trek whadup

Which one is it who ya gonna believe
Undivided in my material being
Undivided life you can't fade me
Desperate the cling I make to positiviery
Stay getting it on til the doubt is gone
If you could be dissuaded you were
Dead all along
Like what's up now you can't fade me
Still in that same old trade of positiviryback to top
Life's Not a Race
A day like today is for you
To let your mind unwind like you ought to
Feel the earth turn 'round when your heart rate slows
Contemplating the thing only your heart knows
That life's not a race

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In the mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

The world whirls around your mind in a golden spiral
The natureal way that things organize
You can't stop entropy sowhy even try
Observe the conscious flow and don't mystify
Life's not a race

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In the mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

Slippin' into a trance
A chance encounter in the autumn
What do I see an opportunity
And then, I got 'em
Sought a chill-out mix to
Carve some space
To make you wanna listen
Its a a bubblin' spring and
Double in kings of
This soundsystem

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In the mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Part feels for your love
And lives to tell you so

Do you see world without end
The rising sun my friend
Imagine cloud like
You will form again
In the spaceyboredom
In the autumnof late afternoon
You are calm
Just like a sleepy roomback to top
Strong All Along
Feel the bass knives pass your flesh enter your bone
Solitude in your dance floor rhythm zone
Let your body go just don't follow the letter
Do what you feel the more absurd the better
Don't be afraid whatever you got, show
Flaunt your personality, let me know your style
You could make a mean hand out of what you been dealt
311 on wax, wax on felt

Feelin' real great cuz the wheather is mild
So you reevaluate your personal style
What makes you laugh stand apart
Makes you feel good what's in your heart
Feelin' real great cuz the wheather is mild
So you check us out on tour cuz your likin' the style
Drums the bass the master plan
Nice guitars the mics in our hands

Stong all along, strong all laong
Come to find out the arm of the truth is long
I'll break it down for you like this
For the hard of listening
You think you're taking the cake
But what's left icing

To every foundation and every crew
I've got the medium here's what we're gonna do
Sendin' out props straight from us to you
To every foundation and every crew from the malibus hores to the brooklyn zoo
We've got the mdium here's what we're gonna do
You wanna touch us, we wanna touch you too
Givin' respect to those who keepin' it true

If you are real of a replica
If your steez be like akira
Wild ass sioux or the cippewa
Your tribes pawnee or the omaha
You can touch me with your fresh aura
Cuz your energy be phenomena
Now move the people and then olla
Take on the love and the good karma

Stong all along, strong all laong
Come to find out the arm of the truth is long
I'll break it down for you like this
For the hard of listening
You think you're taking the cake
But what's left icing

Feelin' real great cuz the wheather is mild
So you reevulate your personal style
What makes you laugh stand apart
Makes you feel good what's in your hear
To every foundation and every crew
I've got the medium here's what we're gonna do
Sendin' out props straight from us to you
To every foundation and every crew

Stong all along, strong all laong
Come to find out the arm of the truth is long
I'll break it down for you like this
For the hard of listening
You think you're taking the cake
But what's left icingback to top
Sever
Just sever that leash and release
Your freedom of speech
You just have to believe
Your deed will be recieved
Somehow somewhere
You won't be repaid with a blank stare
Let me know if you dare

There's no one that could cure you like she does
She does
No one could leave you so alone

Here I goes
My vibe is holy
My eyes closed
Either I'm asleep
Or what I'm thinkin' is deep
Eventually I sigh and kick the sheets
Try to peace together why I'm here
Nothing except my own damn eyes and ears
And then it seves so I listen to my heart
Alwasy and ever
If it's not ggod it might get better
If it's not good it might just sever

I tell you money there's other honey
You always show it but you don't know it
Staring at the door thinking
About the mess your in
In your couch sinking deep
Over the girl that's gone

Just sever that leash and release
Your freedom of speech
You just have to believe
Your deed will be recieved
Somehow somewhere
You won't be repaid with a blank stare
Let me know if you dare

Now all you think aobut her drink about her in vain
But all else feels like you're betraying

We're walkin' it up face up and shakin' it up
We know of and extended field
This is the deal we're letting and getting
The vibes that we want
Open up your heart and proceed to feal
Now your inchin' up to the summit never plummet
Boot your system up
And then bail with the middle finger up
Why you so abrupt baby don't be corrupt

Standing in the club playin' the wall
That they're not her is all
You think and that is true
But what else can youdo
Trying to turn back time
Or just tow the line
Cuz the space you're in
Is no place like homeback to top
Eons
You got a wishing well within
That's ready to begin
See how we roll x2

I'm trying to compromise
Because with me there are no lies
See hwo we run
It's already begun

Now that I'm back to a pushing pen
That weights two hundred tons
I'd like to drop it on you
And watch it all fall throught

Nobody knows just what
You're battling inside
You can hide
Nobody knows just why

Most everyone will lie
If they need to

The ones who aggravate you most
And happen to be ever close
Seem to be the ones lurching
For the same things that you are seaching
The ones that make you feel ill
And you think that nature should have killed
Those you curse when you're alone
Seem to be so close to home

Not an even field to be on
Feels like stading still for eons and eons
Stare it dead in the eye, what now?
All we can do is try to shut it down
Shut it down
Not an even field to be on
Feels like stading still for eons and eons
Stare it dead in the eye, what now?
All we can do is try to shut it down
Shut it downback to top
Evolution
My computer is future shockin'
Download this and you'll start talkin'
Upgraded you're now walkin'
Compatible with all that is rockin'
Comin' on fast it's gettin' digital
It's so huge like a spiritual
Rippling out to every individual
This is life it is a miracle

Evolution has exponental timing it'll be
Half as long til the next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with experimentation
Move foth the species by using our imagination

But can we handle it
Could we dismantle it
Or should we fear the boid and just be para-paranoid
If it's understood it could be used for good and would
If you will believe in all we can concieve

On the periodic table they got it all wrong
Let me lay it down for you in this osng
People want pt
They want au
Lemme tell you what you really ought to know
Figure out ways to master silicon
Fiber optic connectors
Whatever's beyond
So many people don't even attempt to understand
The limitless possibillities of man

Evolution has exponental timing it'll be
Half as long til the next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with experimentation
Move foth the species by using our imagination

I feel trapped I gotta adapt
Remain calm collected
Before I get zapped
My computer is a rebel acting all fine
And just like that payin me no mind
What's up is it's program over come by a glitch
Is it becoming conscious and if so ain't that a bitch
I paid too much for this piece I'll be dammed if it tries
Any funny buisness it'll be the one that pays the price

Evolution has exponental timing it'll be
Half as long til the next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with experimentation
Move foth the species by using our imagination

Yes can we hanle it
We could we dismantle it
We should not fear the boid and just be para-paranoid
If it's understood it could be used for good and would
If you will believe in all we can concieveback to top
Leaving Babylon
Will I say?
Leaving this babylon

Say I'm leaving this babylon
Leaving this babylon
Will not be to long
Will not be to long
Say my people are starving
But your money's running

I said my people are starving
But your money's running

I say your dollar, dollar cut down real low
You ain't got nothin' to show
Gonna' step right through the door
Not gonna' come back no more
Cuz a polition lied
My mama just did cry
And nothing ever gonna' change
My father just desides
Her sisters just a line
And I ain't got nothing to claim
Oh...

Will I say?

Will I say
That, did it go away?
Now did you leave today?
Yeah...yeah...back to top
Mindspin
Are you missing us
Maybe wanting to be kissing us
If you must
When please don't be dismissing us

When we'regone ballin' on the bus
Are we immersed in a sea of replicants
Hard exteriors and fake gold fronts
Losing yourself in the flavor of the mouth
Gotta be a better reason to colonize a star
Gotta be a better reason man's come so far

Is that you in the mama-ocean-purple-sea
Is that you in this dream I see waving me
Closer with one hand
While the other shields your eyes as if surprised
To see the universe begin

Being up on the mindspin
Are you still glad that it has been
Six years and a seven months
This is what you want don't front
I'm feelin' it right now
In this, the goldhour
Part click and part man
Reconcilling my lifespan

Keeping things whole
We move out of the space where air flows
When all of a sudden here we are and here we go
The evolutionary mind turns twists backflips

In space-time
The continuum
Real life planetarium
It's a natural fact

Time is speeding up
There isn't much left
Heart rate increasing
Bustin' through your chest
Compressed
Is your life in the physical
But out of memory comes a vision
Which is a merical
Yeah that
Normally we just can't see
It's not natural or typical
Of our same old thing
Livin' to fast
Unable to grasp the past
Or the futre when at last we ripple
After our big splash

Being up on the mindspin
Are you still glad that it has been
Six years and a seven months
This is what you want don't front
I'm feelin' it right now
In this, the goldhour
Part click and part man
Reconcilling my lifespan

You reamain and refrain
From the pain of wasted time
The last thing on my mind is
Running high fuel supply
Reason why
We just don't quit
Can you get with
A mlding of two minds
What's the worst thing
You could find
A paper trail
That prevails
In dernystification
People want to beieve
In mysteries
People want to believe
In mysteries

Is the truth so bad? x4back to top
Livin' & Rockin'
Livin' & rockin'
Fire is my method for destruction
Leaving charred wreckage 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 for a lack of resoudn
Pissed off mist lifts to honesty
Now come down motherfucker with your philosophy

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?
Domocaratic 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 rearange

Can't nobody do it like 311
Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none
Steppin' on your game from the first floor tore up
Electricitywe 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

Wild and lost speed mad
Along way from sad
Lookin' good like you should you're bad
An itinerant dimension mystic is your spirit see
Like color absolute bodiless indeed
Casual kindred sprit 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

The tragic fucking comedy that was last night
Unfolds to my inner devils sheer delight
A poinless fucking banter in an endless bout
With whiskey woaked frolic room tobacco mouth
Then a sickening trip to what I call the elitist cesspool
Beckonong all the sycophants and defeated yes-fools
Hung over, broke, and a round of apologies
Now come down martinez with the modern mythology

Can't nobody do it like 311
Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none
Steppin' on your game from the first floor tore up
Electricitywe 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 soundback to top
