Chill, Light on my side as my ego becomes
A funky child with some words on my tongue
Be like intake of breath and my mouth gets loose
So while I scatter my spit I dream of juice
Have you ever made out in dark hall ways
Displayed a kiss that made the day? I say
Play a track from your record correction
It’s your mix congratulations

We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now

(Come back in)

I bet you light up when we start the show
Follow me now, very close because I told you so
You know we glow because we throw sun rays
That we be freaky and we want to stay

We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now

Lighting strikes, yo we be in that violent force of light
Guaranteed to turn it out as bad as dolemite
Because we dope kid, change like the chameleon
And the channel, whatever the rap show the world is on
You know we dazzle, like ghetto box booming battles
Rattle inside your head, feel redeemed like cola bottles
Fall in love with your teachers, on the wax we are self made
Check the tech-nique, three eleven is L A

We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now

Keep my feet on the ground
Keep my head in the clouds
Electrified by the sound
It comes from the downand

We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now
