1. Freeze Time - (3:21)
(yíall ready for 311?)

Iíd like to stay here just like this
itís just a momentary bliss
thatís all we can hope for
thatís 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
what you have
you found the cure
and Morse codes for rapture
get with your rhythm
get with your nature

The momentís running down the mountain
it can be captured from a fountain
sometime all that it can be
absence of agony
pleasure from the lack of pain

You will be immortal man
one in the hand
you will know exactly then
what 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 compare to your realization
when you come 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 walkiní
steppiní out from shadows, flowiní like a breeze soft and
when dawn unveils the mornin' star risen
fell the light, feel the love, youíre 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 dark is a seem
that is caving in
mutating rearranging your soul
changing form again

You will be immortal man
one in the hand
you will know exactly then
what 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 compare to your realization
when you come 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
what you have
you found the cure
and Morse codes for rapture
get with your rhythm
get with your nature
2. Come Original - (3:24)
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

To come original it ainít nothin' strange
you got to represent you got come full range aní
full range of emotion full range of styles
when you come to town you'll have them comin' for miles and

Come original you got to come original
all entertainers come original

Black Eyed Peas they comin' full range and
NOFX they comin' full range and
Roni Size he comin' full range

A warning to the crews out there who think theyíre hot
if youíre not original rockers you will get shot
down by the kids neglectiní your art, the stuff you did
eventually it get so bad puts you to bed
cause 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
youíll be able to tell just what dope is

Come original you got to come original

(Come on, come on)
This is not a test thereís 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 theyíve got mad life theyíre sentient
theyíre beautiful as you and they like to dance

(1, 2, 3, 4)
Everything we do we gotta come original
put your hands 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

3. Large In The Margin - (3:29)
Check it check it check it out
got clout and you know that

Large in the margin
my drama unfolds behind closed doors
told on the down-low
i believe that Iím so but really, i donít know
maybe itís better, but I canít think so
maybe its better to fight, one never ever knows
believe the rumors that grow like tumors
more fun than the truth that we know

Trying
too hard to reach a higher plane

Weíll fuck you up
when you least expect it
you think youíre moving closer
when suddenly you wrecked it
but all the same, the pain gains wisdom
as if you ainít had enough then youíre in some
prison of your own creation
mental dilation
look at what your faciní placiní
blame in every direction (what?)
but in the end itís your own infection, (di?)

Thereís no way to avoid listening
you'll always end up listening
hereís hoping the voices arenít too unkind
hereís hoping the voices are benign
itís easier when you hear it
thereís no reason to fear it
itís you
itís you

You think theyíll probably find you
well then youíre probably right
cause theyíll come back to remind you, for eternity
of when you gave up the fight, yeah
somehow they always will find you
the voices in the night, and every night
keep cominí back to remind you, for eternity
of when you gave up the fight

Thereís no way to avoid listening
you'll always end up listening
hereís hoping the voices arenít too unkind
hereís hoping the voices are benign
itís easier when you hear it
thereís no reason to fear it
itís you
itís you
4. Flowing - (3:12)
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 canít be let down if you donít expect the world
expect to lay awake and by your sleeping girl
if somebody cares then there is no way you can tell
cursed consciousness is 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 Iím not prepared for you today
it seems you are, it seems you are, huh!

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
5. Can't Fade Me - (2:09)
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
and when the bass kicks
we get intimate
and 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

However
I'm a cool and mellow man
always got a plan
copin' up 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

You can't fade me

Massive yang and yin
on this earth we spin
and sometimes I gotta center
find out who I am
I chill out
I let in the wind
I gotta feel the force of the planet
on my skin
I got news for ya, it ain't nothin' nice
we all got demons, we all got vice
the struggle never ends
to keep it in check
but I never stop trying
to make the trek
whadup

Uh, uh
which one is it
who ya gonna believe
undivided in my material being
undivided life
you can't fade me
desperate the cling
I made to posetivety
stay gettin' it on
till 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 the same old trade
of positivity
6. Life's Not A Race - (4:26)
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 a mystery, in a future world
long ago, parts feel for your love 
and lives to tell you so

The world revolves around your mind in a golden spiral
the natural way that things organize
you can't stop entropy so why 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 a mystery, in a future world
long ago, parts feel for your love 
and lives to tell you so

Uh, hey
slippin' into a trance
a chance encounter in the autumn
what do I see an opportunity
and then, I got' em
saw the chill-out mix
carve some space
to make you want to listen
it's a bubbling spring
and double in kings
of this soundsystem

So hard to believe part of me will fade
in a mystery, in a future world
long ago, parts feel for your love 
and lives to tell you so

Do you see world without end
the rising my friend
imagine cloud like
you will form again
through spacey boredom
in the autumn of late afternoon
you are calm, just like a sleepy room
7. Strong All Along - (3:28)
Feel the bass knives past your flesh enter your bone
solitude in your dance floor rhythm zone
let your body go, just donít follow the letter
do what you feel, the more absurd the better
don't be afraid, whatever you got, show
flaunt your personality let 'em know you stylo
you could make a mean hand out of what you been dealt
311 on wax, wax on felt

Feeling real great cause the weather is mild
so you re-evaluate your personal style
what makes you laugh, stand apart
makes you feel good what's in your heart
feeling real great cause the weather is mild
so you check us out on tour, cause your likin' the style
drums, the bass, the master plan
nice guitars, the mics in our hands

Strong all along, strong all along
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, (jump!)

To every foundation and every crew
we've got the medium, here's what we're gonna do
sending out props straight from us to you
to every foundation and every crew
from the Malibu shores to the Brooklyn Zoo
we've got the medium, here's what we're gonna do
you wanna touch us, we wanna touch you too
giviní respect, to those who keepin' it true

If you are real or a replica
if your steez be like Akira
the wild ass Sioux or the Chippewa
your tribes Pawnee or the Omaha
you could touch me with your fresh aura
cause your energy be phenomena
now move, the people and then voila
take on the love and the good karma

(Come on!)
Strong all along, strong all along
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, ( jump!)

Feeling real great cause the weather is mild
so you re-evaluate your personal style
what makes you laugh, stand apart
makes you feel good what's in your heart
to every foundation and every crew
we've got the medium, here's what we're gonna do
sending out props straight from us to you
to every foundation and every crew

Strong all along, strong all along
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, (jump!)
8. Sever - (4:42)
Just sever that leash and release
your freedom of speech
you just have to believe
your deed will be received
somehow, somewhere
you wonít be repaid with a blank stare
let me know if you dare

Thereís no one that could cure you
like she does (she does)
no one could leave you so alone

(Cuh, cuh, come on)
Here I goes, my vibe is holy, my eyes close
either I'm asleep or what Iím thinking is deep
eventually I sigh and then I kick the sheets
and try to piece together why Iím here
nothing except my own damn eyes and ears
and then it sever so I listen to my heart always and ever
if itís not good it might get better
if itís not good it might just sever

I tell you money thereís other honey
you always show it but you donít know it
staring at the door thinking about the mess youíre 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 received
somehow, somewhere
you wonít be repaid with a blank stare
let me know if you dare

Now all you think about her
drink about her in vain
but all else feels
like youíre betraying

We're wakiní it up face up, and shakiní it up
we know of an extended field
this is the deal
for letting and getting the vibes that we want
open up your heart
and proceed to feel
now youíre inchin' up
to the summit never plummet
boot your system up
and then bail with the middle finger up
why are you so abrupt, baby donít be corrupt

Standiní in the club playiní the wall
but theyíre not her is all
you think, and that is true
but what else can you do
trying to turn back time
or just tow the line
cause the space youíre in
is no place like home
9. Eons - (2:58)
You got a wishing well within
thatís ready to begin
see how we roll
see how we roll
i'm tryiní to compromise
because with me there are no lies
see how we run
itís already begun
now that i'm back to a pushing pen
that weighs two hundred tons
iíd like to drop it on you
and watch it all fall through

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 searching
the ones who make you feel ill
and you think that nature should have killed
those you curse when youíre alone
seem to be so close to home

Not an even field
to be on
feels like standing 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 standing still
for eons and eons
stare it dead in the eye
what now?
all we can do is try
to shut it down
10. Evolution - (4:17)
(starshines)

My computer is future shockiní
download this and youíll start talkiní
upgraded, youíre now walkin'
compatible with all that is rockiní
cominí on fast, itís gettingí digital
itís so huge, like a spiritual
rippling out to every individual
this is life, it is a miracle

Evolution has exponential timing
itíll be half as long
till the next breakthrough that blows our mind
its up to the people to brave on with experimentation
move forth the species
by using our imagination

But can we handle it
could we dismantle it
or should we fear the void
and just be para-paranoid?
if itís understood
it could be used for good, and would
if you will believe in
all we can conceive

On the periodic table they got it all wrong
let me lay it down for you in this song
people want PT, they want AU
but lemme tell you what you really ought to do
figure out ways to master silicon
fiber-optic connectors, whateverís beyond
so many people donít even attempt to understand
the limitless possibilities of man

Evolution has exponential timing
itíll be half as long
till the next breakthrough that blows our mind
its up to the people to brave on with experimentation
move forth the species
by using our imagination

But can we handle it
could we dismantle it
or should we fear the void
and just be para-paranoid?
if itís understood
it could be used for good, and would
if you will believe in
all we can conceive

I feel trapped, i gotta adapt
remain calm collecting before I get zapped
my computer is a rebel, acting all fine and
just like that payiní me no mind
whatís up, is it's program over come by a glitch
is it becoming conscious 
and if so, ain't that a bitch
i'll paid too much for this piece
i'll be damned if it tries any funny business
it'll be the one that pays the price

Evolution has exponential timing
itíll be half as long
till the next breakthrough that blows our mind
its up to the people to brave on with experimentation
move forth the species
by using our imagination

using our imagination

But can we handle it
could we dismantle it
or should we fear the void
and just be para-paranoid?
if itís understood
it could be used for good, and would
if you will believe in
all we can conceive

Yes we can handle it
we could dismantle it
we should not fear the void
and just be para-paranoid
if itís understood
it could be used for good, and would
if you will believe in
all we can conceive
11. Leaving Babylon - (3:59)
Well I say, oh
leaving this Babylon

I said I'm leaving this Babylon
I'm leaving this Babylon
it will not be too long, no
it will not be too long
I said 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 duck down real low
you ain't got no gold to show
gonna' step right through the door
not gonna' come back no more
because the politician lie
my mama just did cry
and nothing ever gonna' change
my father just a sigh
her sisters just alive
and I ain't got nothing to claim
oh oh oh

Well I say
well I say
natty dread go away
natty dread leave today
yeah, yeah
12. Mindspin - (3:59)
Are you missing us
maybe wanting to be kissing us
and if you must, please donít be dismissing us
and when weíre gone, bailin' on the bus

Are we immersed in a sea of replicants
hard exteriors and fake gold fronts
loosing yourself in the flavor of the month
gotta be a better reason to colonize a star
gotta be a better reason manís come so far

Is that you in the mama-ocean-people-sea
is that you in this dream as see waving at 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 seven months
this is want you want, donít front
Iím feeliní it right now
in this, the gold hour
part clock and part man
reconciling my life span

Keeps 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 twist backflips
in space-time the continuum
real-life planetarium

Itís a natural fact
time is speeding up there isnít 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 miracle
yeah, that

Normally we just canít see
itís not natural or typical
of our same old thing
livin' too fast, unable to grasp the past
or the future 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 seven months
this is want you want, donít front
Iím feeliní it right now
in this, the gold hour
part clock and part man
reconciling my life span

You remain
and refrain
from the pain
of wasted time
last thing on my mind is
running high
fuel supply
reason why
we just donít quit
can you get with
a melding of two minds
what's the worst thing you could find
a paper trail
that prevails
in demystification
people
want to believe
in mysteries
people
want to believe
in mysteries
is the truth so bad?
is the truth so bad?
is the truth so bad?
is the truth so bad?
13. Livin' & Rockin' - (2:42)
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 from a lack of resound
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?
democratic non erratic Socratic method
we'll take away the pain
we'll pacify the bullshit up in your brain
in times of change or the same old thangs
as you maintain or rearrange

Can't nobody do it like 311
fuckin' up competition cause there really is none
steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up
electricity we 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
a long 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 spirit 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 pointless fucking banter in an endless bout
with whiskey soaked frolic room tobacco mouth
then a sickening trip to what I call the elitist cesspool
beckoning 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 cause there really is none
steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up
electricity we 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

Can't nobody do it like 311
fuckin' up competition cause there really is none
steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up
electricity we store it up
