Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
Nick:
   Fire is my method for destruction
   Leaving charred wreakage 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
---> Play Riff 2 over:
SA:
   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 built up in your brain
   In times of change or the same old thangs
   As you maintain or rearrange
---> Play Chorus over:
Both:
   Can't nobody do it like 311
   Fuckin' up competition cuz 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
---> Play Riff 1 over:
SA:
   Wild and lost speed mad
   A long way from sad
   Lookin' good like you should you're bad
   An itinerant dimension 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
---> Play Riff 2 over:
Nick:
   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
---> Play Chorus over:
Both:
   Can't nobody do it like 311
   Fuckin' up competition cuz 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
---> Play Bridge
---> Play Outro over:
Both:
   Can't nobody do it like 311
   Fuckin' up competition cuz there really is none
   Steppin' on your game from the first floor up tore up
   Electricity we store it up
