Transistor
If you want more beats for you buck there's no luck (4x)
Then there's no luck
Then again if you came for drama then I can't understand a
Music critics (2x)
Not afraid of a guy who'll tell you he's never been in a mix
Been in a mix (2x)
We're from the grassroots so big up to our friends
Every crew, every click, and every posse
Big up to all the heads not of hypocracy

You're a transistor
Lightning resistor
Conducting to the mother star
That's what you are

Renegade sound system 311 (4x)
311
Brothers from another planet and here once again
Automatic (2x)
Quantam saints of the universe in a holographic
Cosmic remix (2x)
From the mysterious blue planet
We can breathe anywhere
Under water, out in space, and in la
Your polluted air's no problem for these homeys

You're a transistor }
Lightning resistor } (2x)
Conducting to the mother star }
That's what you are }back to top
Prisoner
Whoa oh prisoner
My pretty oh oh prisoner

A black ocean is the sky above
Tiny lights bob what star you from

Trapped in material plane
She wants to fly and they think she's insane
But she knows what she know
Give that girl wings and that's all she wrote

Twilight zone (2x)
I'm floating in the dark alone and
Is there any love out here let me know

A laser lights pinpoints the top of my dome
Then through my body
As if scotty's beaming up a wayward soul
Mutant races in an ancient universe
Dark shadows humans rhymin' in a raggae verse

It's gone if you blink
I can see it as soon as you think it

Dancehalls crystal balls
On sidewalk malls
Psychic people outdoors reading palms

I believe that you know more
To survive the dimension if four

Oh prisoner
My pretty oh oh prisoner

Look at the way she's searching
Trapped in a world that's hurting
So bad it makes her cry
But I won't let her say good bye

Twilight zone (2x) }
I'm floating in the dark alone and } (2x)
Is there any love out here let me know }
No way (2x)back to top
Galaxy
Between mars and jupiter
There's a gap
For another planet
Now way back yeah
Maybe a mad man
Just blew the shit
Out of it
Now we're tryin'
To get back
In alignment
Explains why we
Go through cycles
Always tryin' to find it
Closin' into the age
Of aquarius
Crazy weather
Floods tornadoes
Low jet streams
Not gettin better
Enterin' a twilight zone
Activities grown
Every single day
More people spottin' ufo's

Let's come together with this
New coast shit
We got the motherfuckin' kids
Now let's freak this shit
It's messed up when you're feeling
Everything is wrong
Takeover the pentagon

It's fucked up in this paradigm
Cuz I'm burnin' fossil fuels
I don't even need too
Free energy has been harnessed
We don't use it why
Cuz the techniques been suppressed
The hours glass has passed through granules
Thats cool we gotta break it
Bust all these rules and switch
Change up the pitch
Rearrange our views and this
Dumb shit we'll ditch

Chorus

I found a bootleg of the cosmic conscious
Then erased it
Visualized the breath technique
Slowly became it
Now something is watchin' me
Since I have found the keys
To free this energy
My high speed light body
Cuz the galaxy is crazy
It doesn't amaze me
That we're livin' out of phase
And quickly decaying
6 protons, 6 neutrons, 6 electrons
Is encoded in this plane
We live onback to top
Beautiful Disaster
Today seems like a good day to burn a bridge or two
The one with old wood creaking that would burn right away on cue
I try to be not like that but some people really suck
Some people need to get the axing chalk it up to bad luck

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from something so many things ignored
I might do that stuff if it didn't make me feel like shit
I'm on some old reality tip so many trips in it

Beautiful disaster
Flyin down the street again
I tried to keep up
E ate up
Now I wish you all the luck
You're a butterfly in the wing you wore me out and left m so many things ignored
I try to be not like this, but I thoud without a care
A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
I do, I don't, whatever

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from somethinght I'd make a good song
There's nothing to see shows over people just move alongback to top
Inner Light Spectrum
When I shadow box inside my skull
Bothered by the senselessness
I wish for the messiah
Indian woman, babylon

There is one thing I will say on life
We are livin' yeah
Let it flow
Cuz it won't stop

And when the kind consiousness yes come unto you
You will know and it won't stop

When I wipe the sleep from my eyes
Will my fondest dream please come true
Crush my heart with a hammer
Make a purer one babylon

There is one thing I will say on life
We are livin' yeah
Let it flow
Cuz it won't stop

And when the kind consiousness yes come unto you
You will know and it won't stop

But mean people I say choke on it
Gagging all the way
May you remember the texture for days
But you'll get used to
The feeling of your pride
Of your pride (2x)
Chugalug it (2x)
Time after time (3x)
Learning your lesson (2x)
Will do you fine
Do you fine (2x)back to top
Electricity
This song started as a rant against haters
But that'd be giving in to the instigators
If there is one thing I'd like to pull off
When someone steps with hate all I do is just scoff
You can't burn me (2x)

The same force that flows through every circuit
The juice that's spent everytime you work it
Every life form is based on this simplicity
The soul that you have is electricity

You can't avoid that
Evolution is fact
We're all from the same lucy
Despite differences you see

I'm in disbelief at what people will believe
All along I thought we had our hearts on our shirtsleeve
If one thing I can say as a piece of advice
Don't believe it till you see it and then see it twice
It's so funny (2x)

The same force that flows through every circuit
The juice that's spent everytime you work it
Every life form is based on this simplicity
The soul that you have is electricity

You can't avoid that
Evolution is fact
We're all from the same lucy
Despite differences you see
A call out for unity
In every province and city
What do you think we've been saying
Since we first started playingback to top
What Was I Thinking?
The word that I heard was so absurd }
I can't believe it slipped from my lips }
The tongue with which it was sung was so dumb } (2x)
I wish to pull it from my skull }
}
What the fuck was I thinking (8x) }back to top
Jupiter
Sometimes the only thing that saves you
Think of bad things luck never gave you
And although your true love has just left you
Well at least you mother kept you

Be sure that a dreams alive
There only short burst in life
Are you able to be satisfied
Do you expect fun all the time

Hey we can rock it easy and lay it in the fold
Hey we can shake you simply just by being cold
And if it falls apart will you still be my friend
Get back we're gonna stick together

And so many things that have gone wrong
At least you have ears to hear this song
And if you reading in close caption
There's still bad things that could have happened

Long time since we've first came here
And sometimes we fall on deaf ears
One thing I've got to say before sales dive
Stay positive and love your life

Hey we can rock it easy and lay it in the fold
Hey we can shake you simply just by being cold
And if it falls apart will you still be my friend
Get back we're gonna stick togetherback to top
Use Of Time
With the words staying me slow
The verbs that just don't flow
Confusing use of time
Partial stoning of the heart
Waiting for something to start
Confusing use of time

But the trying again
Makes me think it's all gonna end
Confusing use of time

But everytime I turn the volume down
All the I hear is the deafening sound
Of you hearts pound

But the trying again
Makes me think it's all gonna end
Confusing use of time

Today, the longest day
Hearing repeating things you'd say
Confusing use of time
Can you hear the void I describe
What could I say vacancy sounds like
Confusing use of time

But the trying again
Makes me think it's all gonna end
Confusing use of timeback to top
The Continuous Life
When things are outta whack
And they might collapse
And at the end of the day
You still can't relax
And physically you ache
Like a cavity feelin' the bind
On your mind and the rest
Of your body
Listen to your heartbeat
Flow and imagine
Become jackson pollack
Air brush chinese dragons
On a sky blue convertion
Van or an electra
Buick of the mind full of
Fuminous matter
And slowly all the pressure
Recedes and you stop to decay
Naturally think clearly
Ultimately though your grace
Will give way to traffic jams
Submachine guns in hand
City red-necks who think
Like the omega man
Feelin' the extremes
Of the times we're livin'
Stockpile spaghetti-o's
And cheerios plannin'
To survive that fall-out shit

It's not ambuguous }
It be continuous }
It's all about us }
It's for real my man } (2x)
The continuous life there is no end }
Movin' through life }
Movin' through death }

My radio emits a signal form
A strange noise the kind of which
I've never heard before
I scan the dial for more stations
But all I get is an eerie feelin'
I'm not dreamin' this is the real dealin'
There's nothin' like this trance
I'm caught in a daze
Cuz I'm finally out of my body
The blue lights are ablaze
Yeah I'm really amazed
And feelin' so light that's right
Lift off and I'm into the sky
As if a hologram were created
To shift my conciousness
Changed again and I'm flung
In the riff
I wanna be free I wanna do right
I move through the portal
To be purified

It's not ambuguous }
It be continuous }
It's all about us }
It's for real my man } (3x)
The continuous life there is no end }
Movin' through life }
Movin' through death }back to top
No Control
Do you want me to cry?
Cry for you
How can you say that you're blue
A rich rock star you are
Yet you still complain, that's insane
Imagine if you had a child of two
You're a single mom, son named tom
You work a long hard day just to bill pay
With no time to play then what would you say

Still in this world what it means to me
Losin' my grip as I trip on anomalies
My thired eye is the prize of unifyin' horus
The pleadies will smash out of taurus
Energy pure decompose in the porous
Soil of life moving on it's courses
Crystals 'neath the surface radiate the cycle
Combing minerales they will flex and let go
Toxically were built to never last
Cuz the waste we make all day
Steady growin' fast
I get up intake my blue-green algae
Let it penetrate
Strengthen my grasp
Holistic healers dealin' our galactic growth
Reversin' fx of shit wrecked chernobyl

Wanna take it further } (2x)
Let's take that funk further }

We've all got pain that's real
And we should say how we feel
And I've felt so alone
But I know I've always got a home
The question I'm up serving
Is am I really deserving

Gamma waves bacterial plagues
Cow mutilations all the time
Not to mention visitations
More than 2000 years
Of fuckin' with our fears
The only thing true
We gotta love each other
Try to leep a positive vibe
They make it tough for ya
You're cut off and lonely
While you hustle for dough
We can overcome the wrongs
While we're reachin' the point
Stick together all forever
Now continue to flow

Wanna take it further } (2x)
Let's take that funk further }back to top
Running
Here in the world feel it flowing
River of life on a human journey
Don't be afraid of becoming the sea
Don't worry yourself (3x)
Many stories will
Be left untold
But understand everything must go

Slow slow lover

Oh livin' is a journey
Waking believing running
For shelter now
Slow slow lover

Hurting don't make a sound
Oh livin' is a journey
Waking believing running

What's that you do
You're running around
There's people that need you
And you're letting down
And when it's time to care
You always leave town
Don't hurry yourself (3x)
There's some wildness
There and mercy
It's the emptiness we
Love touching

Slow slow lover

Your feet on the ground
And love yourself

Light Years
You're a thousand light years runnin' through my brain
Reminding me that no one's sane
Not all the time
Yes

You're a thousand light years runnin' through my brain
Reminding me that no one's sane
Not all the time
Yes I still remember you
In a way that you'd want me to
I man a man you know see
Who will do right for you

Never let your regret make you wish we had not met
I cannot think that way yeah
I drove you crazy I see that plainly
You waited on pins for me
But needles never ever love
What did you think ofback to top
Tune In
You're a power spot rotating
Everchanging
Transmitting like a radio wave
Frequently feeling
What's goin' on
Times are weird all this static
Things erratic
Seems like we lost the magic
See hear how clear
Is inner quality
A yin and yang type of thang
Sacred geometry
Ascending mad
Energy crazy bad
You're something nasa
Fuckin' wish they had

Tune in for those who are wantin'
Vision feel it from within
Sing along
Tune in for those who are wantin'
Vision feel it from within
You know

You're a star creator
Soul craft generator
Movin' through time and space
Son you're a liberator
But you're memory
Has been erased
The things you knew
Misplaced check it out
Babylon
Life style we scorn
Now we live again
In la tokyo and new york
Come on pay a fee
Smoke your booty weed
Put gas in your tank
Keep you city bumpin'

Rub-a-Dub
Ooh, what else can I do (2x)
Ooh, face in a screw
Ooh, racing to prove
You never remember
The blossom sender
Still in a rub a dub style

Long time you don't know what I'm doing whoa
Long time see troubles are brewing yeah
Stick to the way you rock it and know that
You'll cope with that
Not gonna let it sit til I say
How dope was that
Keep you head pumping til you get in the zone
Not giving up not going home

Stick to the way you rock it just do it real slow
Nobody can really say cuz nobody really know
Only thing that matters if it's funky to you
You got a choice of what you can do

Ooh, what else can I do (2x)
Ooh, face in a screw
Ooh, racing to prove
You never remember
The blossom sender
Still in a rub a dub style

Stick to the way you rock it just do it real slow
Nobody can really say cuz nobody really know
Only thing that matters if it's funky to you
You got a choice of what you can doback to top
Starshines
I am a music lover some how I get paid
This song would still exist if no money was made
That's the difference
I summed it up in a sentence
I'm sittin' here perfectly still cuz I've got no place to go
Be about two months until we light up
The show follow me now
I sing of spring it's a marvelous thing
What else swing the thing you bring

Yo I got to say hola }
Orange county to angola }
I go back to the beat } (2x)
It never lets me down }
Zone in and let it rola }

I deem stream of sweat that connects me to you
I still be all about that thing that you do
We dip dip dive and herbalize
I don't look over my shoulder but I know there are spies
But then long time crew
Stuck like glue
You never let me down
Always came through
Always kept the flow
Even when you didn't know
Don't ask us
We make it up as we go

Yo I got to say hola }
Orange county to angola }
I go back to the beat } (2x)
It never lets me down }
Zone in and let it rola }

Seems like people are the viruses
And earth is simply tired of us
So many headz what if something would give
And kill off our race
Maybe diseases from space
Arriving from a comet
With a trail left for the planet
Say the wake it created was the start of the end
Filled with spores that were engineered
Plant pathogens
What's in the future for the view is many changes
Humans could be in danger
What would you eat to be a remainder
As your food is maimed
To take you out the frame
Some would vaporize
Some would remain
The same suckers with no cares about
The wave of the world I feel
Their lives are destined for hard times too

There's a parallel universe that might be blocked
But by emotion we put into it we could unlock
I'm not saying we could escape fate tunneling in this vast
Untranslatable energy filled of dust and ashback to top
Strangers
Now I don't know you you don't know me }
But I can show you where's the beat } (2x)
And you can do as you feel as long as you move }
Two perfect strangers sharing a groove }

Suckers step up and want to cause friction
But violence is for those who can't handle diction
Competion is waning circumnavigate the draining
Complaining about those who are steady maintaining the jam

Jump into the pit and just slam
Big respect goes out to those who can
Lose their shit once in a while
Act a fool just to mark time yo that's my style

And you can do as you feel as long as you move
Two perfect strangers sharing a grooveback to top
Borders
There are days I wanna leave la
I wanna break out the maze
Escape the dark haze these days
So many kids I know your feelin' crazed
Crave material thangs and makin' slave wages
Baggy pockets only got laundry fluff
Livin' where rich people always buyin' some stuff
So you try to act tough and hide what's inside
Hold your head high gettin' fucked up and throwin' dice
As bad as yours and bad enough I'm sure
My heart wants to love but must navigate through war
Cuz seein' that we're wired to short circuit
Must mean the meek who will inherit the earth already work it

There's a land by the sand grab the money
Plastic the life end of the century
People actin' fake can't see the omens
Wake up yourself cause change is comin'
There's a land by the sand grab the money
Hollywood is such a place fuelin' the frenzy
And everybody starts to peep around corners
Before they take their next step they know their borders

In this $19.98 plus shipping and handling type
Netherworld everytime merchandise dips in our coffers
We buy that image that cost of livin' uh huh
The fakest shit and act cool our friends are watchin'
Attention shoppers check the selection in our reflection
Don't you feel good does it enhance your fresh complexion
You gotta have it you got got to have it (2x)
As the world turns and all the money we burn
On the bullshit to make us happy sometimes we never learn
We're self centered we think were better
We look down as a people upon our elders

There's a land by the sand grab the money
Now let go of it cause it's dissolving
It created all your fears and kept you hustling
Made you sever all the ties to your family
There's a land by the sand grad the money
Plastic the life end of the century
People actin' fake can't see the omens
Wake up yourself cause change is comin'
There's a land by the sand grab the money
Hollywood is such a place fuelin' the frenzy
And everybody starts to peep around corners
Before they take their next step they know their bordersback to top
Stealing Happy Hours
Massive laminate fortress
Hazy cannibus porches
Saying no to the bores
It's not mine or yours then I said
The wait sucks I don't mind waiting
Once you get here there's no more gates and I gotta say

Stealing happy hours (4x)

Don't wait on minute more to ask me
You make me feel like hank chinaski
In war all the time war war all the time
No one else can seem to find

Stealing happy hours (4x)
