311 Plain

I’m in a good way on a bad day

Thinking of a plan a way to stay

On top of it, nailin’ in

I have a fit if I sit, sit doin’ nothin’

Which is what I done so far but I carve a niche

With sits in my good things brain layin’ the tracks

Like a loco mo spark the Jay

Tabla Rosa is my brain

Don’t mean to bug or drive you insane

Don’t have to guess just, just what I’m sayin’

If I had a point, I’d say it plain

Dammit my brain is blank and that’s lame

I would be a liar if I said I was inspired

Nothin’ to say but that’s ok

Nod your head to this

Messin’ around, I’m not having it you bite the hand I put your head out

I come to know a travesty and so sad to see

The scene dictated by frustrated former musicians

Switchin the emphasis from art to money

But I demand autonomy what else

I tell you what’s wrong to me

The industry’s ability to manufacture stars

They churn them out like Iwo Jima makes cars

But the blame lies not with those suits for trying

It’s the sheep that keep on buying that soulless crap

Whatever they put in front of ya

The hysteria of America

Nod your head to this

Well, stress is the enemy and not a friend to me

One thing I see is to be easy goin’

Throwin’ down sit back and watch my life flowin’

And knowing life is but a dream

You can ask my home team, and uh let me tell you how I see

My economy seems to be in words not action actually

Ya see yes I’m a tempest and I rarely rest

But that’s what you go to do if you want to be the best

So I’m on a threshold so don’t tell me no

I just flow and know I can count on my bros

Tabla Rosa is my brain

Don’t mean to bug or drive you insane

Don’t have to guess just, just what I’m sayin’

If I had a point, I’d say it plain

Dammit my brain is blank and that’s lame

I would be a liar if I said I was inspired

Nothin’ to say but that’s ok

Nod your head to this, to this, to this

Don’t you know that the Devil he’s in me and God she is too

My Yin hates my Yang, but what the hell ya gonna do

I choose a rocky ass path but that’s how I like it

Life’s a bowl of punch go ahead and spike it

311 Feels So Good

Well everybody got opinion that’s loud and unbending

I spend my time healing and mending together

It’s a question of whether live positive, well I give

P-Nut is a brother that’s always got a girlfriend

I say the lyrics that’ll put you in a whirlwind

Ese’ has the wisdom of a Noble Laureate

I’m down for our days of glory

It’s easy to do when you’re up with Sexton

A rythmatic genius churnin’ out the next one

But you know bro I flow in this circumstance

You’ll get your chance

Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while

I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go

In your face

Feels so good

In your face

Feels so good

Go Ese’

Trip this get up on the tipness

Don’t sweat or let it set once you grab it

Come and get some to have and to flaunt

Know about it know I got the news if you want

I pocket I lock it I sock it your mind I rock it

Shell shocked it maybe I groove dammit I know it

F up the truth that’s how I show it

In the half light Ese’ sounds Nicks a night light

I’m rappin’ he’s snappin’ on

Something you might like now

Don’t frown if I chose to

Cut it up brothers you can’t take it with you

Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while

I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go

In your face

Feels so good

In your face

Feels so good

Get this my stream of consciousness is a sea

Much like Bukowski with a rage

Speaking to the page beasts in the cage

Jumping off the stage, diving

Thriving, striving, for a better day Ese’

Beat back by flesh shattered doors

Bragging fists to the sky you’re feelin’ high

Yes to live and die

Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while

I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go

In your face

Feels so good

In your face

Feels so good

311 Offbeat Bare-Ass

Any different people can apply to drop the funk

It’s not a country club review board steady talkin junk

Many people would have it others go put and grab it

Some trip over toots and say fuck it I’m sunk

I put it in a limerick and kick the slick nick verbs

I am the one who scores the herb

When we’re on the road P-Nut rolls it up

Throw me a joint on stage what’s up

I will tell a cop that I know my fucking rights

And we can match wits all night for real

He said if I had nothing to hide

Then of course I wouldn’t mind if he looked through our ride

Uh, no I’d really rather you didn’t

And no we don’t have guns hidden

We stood there for a while continue to decline

Firmly, I didn’t lose my mind

I didn’t let him break me he’s just another human

Not a bit of shame in what we were doin’ that day

He couldn’t make us stay

We had our shit together

It don’t matter whether

We sport the dread locks or a shaved head

Or if we have a sticker from the dead

I said a better verse rehearsed about the roughneck curse

Last week I keep an even keel and bow in place

And face the music every minute

Never could see my homey comin’ till he passed

Funky gas by my way all the day I couldn’t laugh

Oh by now I’m chill with it

Bare ass in my face I’m ok but Chad’s like “Uh-uh no he isn’t”

So I proceed to hear him get loose with the

Fartin’ all over my face sometimes my tummy

He fucked with my flow although I thought it funny

I probably wouldn’t care if I smoked more kind bud

But that wouldn’t do me shit cuz then he’d fuck me more up

Crazy ill and chillin’ rude but I’ze a real cool dude

He didn’t believe the day would come when he would get his top

But then one day right in front of his face I got him

He looked over said “God damn get me some water”

The one time I hadn’t wasted till I got mine

Smeared his nose with my armpit funk slime

So you get it the picture just how sick we were then

But before I jet “Hey yo Chad sniff my finger man”

I can see a lot of people who feel like I do

I can see a lot of people who feel like I don’t

I go on step lightly even when I’m heavy

High jump the slump open up fot eh Revy Horton Heat

Sweet what am I displayin’ forgot what I was saying

I know I must be laying a pipe you got a gripe

With the way I get high

Graffix bong sing along with a cry of a

Mandatory sentence for a crime with no victim

When everyone knows jail terms should be picked in

Order of the pain that they cause

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law

Until you violate the rights of another

Respect the space of your sister and your brother

The war on drugs may be well intentioned

But it falls fucking flat when you stop and mention

The overcrowded prisons where a rapists gets paroled

To make room for a dude who has sold

A pound of weed to me that’s a crime

Here’s to good people doin time y’all

Bare Ass Yeah [x4]

311 Island Sun

Leaves go down, sometimes they hit the ground

But the clouds are still in the sky

Cause there’s a better place to be and it’s one you need to see in this lifetime

So get on board and be on your way, whoa

Space to fill

Nothing to do but chill

No one minds if you misbehave

You wanna come out on a run as we set into the sun

Blending all the flavors only mixing in the perfect ones

A harmony and a beat with boom

Feeling all old school

As we zoom see it all so clearly

There’s nowhere on Earth to be

On the open sea

Best believe me

Take your frozen heart and lay it in the island sun

Oh bake it like a snowflake, drink the water it becomes

As it melts away

Out of bounds

Seemingly lost and found

Come around

As we sail away

You gotta come along with me as we float across the sea

Mixing all the elements with alien technology

A secret message hidden in this tune

Now let me hear it from you

Tell me what you say

Who’s the one that gets you?

Free from all distractions

Under a full moon

Could it be me?

Take your frozen heart and lay it in the island sun

Oh bake it like a snowflake, drink the water it becomes

As it melts away

311 Forward

Uh! Woo! Check it-check it-check it out

You got clout and you know that

Large in the margin

We’ll put you in charge for your pleasure

Large in the margin

[mumbles]

Maybe it’s better, but I don’t think so

Maybe it’s better to fight, one never ever knows

Maybe it’s better, [mumbles]

[mumbles]

Trying too hard to reach some higher plane

Will fuck you up

When you least expect it

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 your facin’

Placin’ blame in every direction

But in the end it’s your own infection, di’ack

You think they’ll probably find you

Well then you’re probably right

Cuz they’ll come back to remind you, for eternity

When you gave in to the fight

Somehow they always will find you

The voices in the night, and every night

Keep comin’ back to remind you, for eternity

Of when you gave up the fight

311 All Mixed Up

You’ve got to trust your instinct

And let go of regret

You’ve got to bet onyourself now star

‘Cause that’s your best bet

Watch me now with a wicked andwild and I said

We come with the funky style that gets us known for the show

Andwe’ll mix the hip hop reggae if we say it is so

And fuck the naysayers causethey don’t mean a thing

Cause this is what style we bring

Now it’s morning butlast night’s on my mind

There’s something I need to get off my chest

And nomatter what may come to shine

The dream will always be mine

All mixed up, youdon’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 getoff of your ass

All mixed up, you don’t know what to do

Next thing you turnaround and find the person is you

Thought a freak might be the thing

But youknow this will pass, so just get off of your ass

You’ve got to trust yourinstinct

And let go of regret

You’ve got to bet on yourself now star

`Causethat’s your best bet

Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said

Like bustin’ in on a session but you got to call it quits

Sick sick bit just can’t quit

You make menervous, throat dry

My brain is empty, don’t know why

But I saw you doingsomething

Which is really truly nothing

But you could bust me out all day

Manymoons since first I saw you

Many moons since first we did the do

Many moonssince first I saw you

Many moons since first we did the do

And why did I trywhen I knew it was no and

Why did I try when I say it was so

But save it forlate we should just let it skate

‘Cause the waiting feel is fine
