When doing the slide, try and slide from anywhere above the 9th fret, I
shoot for the 10th fret.  You can also play this riff entirely on the low
E string.

At (1:56) when the lyrics go "your rhymes have been outmoded" I scratch
the low E string at the 6th fret, this may be a little off but not by
much.

E:----xxxxx6xxxxx-----


Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro (x2)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Not I'm not the type to just act like I know
   Puttin on an angle putting on a show
   Speaking on nothing makes you a stunt
   I'll tell you right here yo I don't front
   I cross the t's and skip nonlegitimacies
   Or else please
   I cannont handle all the negative vibe merchants
   Is that all you have in you per chance
   So much angst and pain it's so wack
   You should take a tip from the one Frank Black
   Play some pachinko play some parcheesi
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Cause all the angst shit is just cheesy
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   It's the 311 bliss too smooth for pissed
   Lyrics talkin loud again
   Yeah we are the party men
   Cosmetics that you fretted
   We sport the high asthetic
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Here go rap kickin the dazzled crazy mathematic
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   I am what I am mix some old school jams onto tape cuz the
   Party's in the crates I scan step into the realm
   What you gonna do
   Give the party people something funky to listen to
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got
---> Play Riff 4 (x1)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Bodyrock pop and lock here's an example
   Boulevard chrome beats always ampin' your temple
   Punks get got in the age of hip hop
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   It's just begun like stolen bikes on the blacktop
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   Born to sing a lyric immaculately concepted
   No strain in your game if your game is respected
   Come as you are radio star
   Drown out the hatred with a rhyme and an electric guitar
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Dispatched when rap shattered the glass of radio access
   May we turn some soul on their rythmless dances
   You know the time and they'l know the scoop
   They'l say it was a rhyme and a beat of a rap group
---> Play Riff 5 over:
   Your rhymes have been outmoded
   Your rhymes have been outmoded
   Your rhymes have been outmoded
   Your rhymes have been outmoded
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Your rhymes have been outmoded
   So just quit your bellyachin'
   You're saying that your tortured
   Give me a fuckin break and
   Maybe take out the source
   Of your disparing what do I mean
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Kick the fuckin' heroin
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   I speak from experience
   Because I didn't see clearly once
   Acting like I dunce
   In 1989 I was cocaine and Jim Beam
   But now it's 95 and I'm ginseng
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got see
   Misdirected hostility, that's what you got
---> Play Riff 5 (x2)
---> Play Riff 2 (x1)
