Nod your head to this, as a lot of apprentice
Some of this were standing on the shoulder of giants
Some tyrants, 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 like to see deletion
Of the parasites to make the load light

Fools know rules, but the rest keep bouncing back
With the lack of further adieu, see
As one can deduce, we kick out the jams
Slam the s*** out hard and long
‘Cause we got more song, dig it, check it

Something you might like now
All-star bound
Yeah, you’re so sound
Cool as the blue water all around

From a force field flashing
Aliens are sending
Black evolutions of love you are hearing
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 you’re into, we are, baby
‘Cause music will be coming out the words we speak

We erect break beats shatter, wax still on the platter
Our s*** is badder, we come, fly, then we scatter
‘Cause we deep and we solid, yeah, we hear ya holler

Electricity running through is all that feels good
Sometimes 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
A waiter in the Dorothy C. Pavilion in ’89
I met some weirdoes 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 he 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

My mike 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
You’re slippin’, but content because your spirit And hills are alive, with the sound of music People never see the whole trip of life
Grab knowledge, man, and all you do is syph

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
