Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro
---> Play Verse over:
   Coming like a nightmare word like I'm gonna go for it
   Fuckin' around what ya got to show for it?
   Let it be know that I'm in the zone
   And whatever I need I just pick up the phone
   'Cuz I'm true with it and you're new with it
   I just swing the thing and then I'm through with it
   I don't need friends to act like foes
   'Cuz I'm Nick Hexum the one who knows about things
---> Play Pre-Chorus over:
   'Cuz it takes two and we swings better than you
   Then it's time for the dub so we roll out the club
   And you know just what I do
   I'm hitting in the freak mode
   Puttin' on a load sippin' on a guinny
   Then lo and behold una vision from bottom to top
   And I just can't stop
---> Play Chorus over:
   311 show them the air is rarified
   But you don't give a damn 'cuz the groove is hellafied
   Grew up punk, listening to funk
   I'm a hyper type of fella that does not touch junk
   You're the back of the pack and the bottom of the stack
   That's waht you get when you're steady talkin' shit
   Not goin' for self that shit is on the shelf
   It's 95 and we go for the hive
---> Play End-Chorus (x1)
---> Play Verse over:
   Listen up this you're gonna bump to this
   And if I'm feelin' mean I'm gonna clutch my fist
   Now when I say mean, I mean I'm gonna rock it
   You're gonna find out kid I'm bout to shock it
   When I'm on I'm gone I hear the beat that spawns
   The way we freak it and we kick up a storm
   The day we turn to pop the show will stop
   So feel the beat and get lost now
---> Play Pre-Chorus over:
   Back to part 2 the hard way we play
   Sublime on time to all the fans I'm SA
   And if you don't know I say check the show
   Do what you got to on the dance floor
   Some say the style is wack but I say fuck that
   Get the hell back and watch us rock the set
   We cast the mold bust it cold explode
   Megatrendsetters known around the globe
---> Play Chorus over:
   Friends takin' you where you never been
   We done what we wanted craftin' poems
   You can rock there is a glow around you
   Lose control holmes just like we do
   Hard to obtain brotha' what's my name
   Mad to find unlike ya mamma and your masquerade
   I drive a mach-1 no dashboard Jesus
   I hear voices say that's Doug Martinez
---> Play End-Chorus (x1)
---> Play Verse over:
   You're all up in my mix like fuckin' Betty Crocker
   You think you're playing me but actually you're a jocker
   You bad mouth me bitch man you givin me juice
   It aint nothin' but a party everybody get loose
   Notice what I don't do when stress steps to me
   Whatever your complaint so sue me
   I say fuck the naysayers and keep goin
   Gotta do what I gotta do to get the people glowin'
---> Play Pre-Chorus over:
   So let everybody gather the more the better
   I represent the traveler him he's a shredder
   At ease with yourself and don't try to please me
   I'm just here today then quickly I'm out
   On the town one light I'm a glow worm
   For several hours wiggle jiggle like I'm a huge sperm
   Can't appreciate a brothers love of funky music
   You think I'm a silly rabbit 'cuz my style has tricks
---> Play Chorus over:
   Of the way I feel now I just got to rock
   The music be poppin through me like electric shocks
   I think and blink and I wink but that shits not tiny
   'Cuz in a blink of an eyelash you will not find me
   You're the back of the pack and the bottom of the stack
   That's what you get when you're steady talkin' shit
   Not goin' for self that shit is on the shelf
   'Cuz it's 95 and we go for the hive
---> Play End-Chorus (x1)
---> Play Ending (x1)
