Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Riff 1 (x1)
---> Play Riff 1 + 2 over:
   Story time, Sways away the haze
   They spent contemplating, formulating, 
   Theory searing above me swimming
   Pay tribute to the few we look up to
   Come again, hear my soul fool
   Who will know us but our brothers
   Those who down with us are thinking
   New school, tip top, pound the feeble
   Walking and talking
   Low down and evil
   Follow me now, yo yato
   The Nix Hex is on
---> Play Riff 3 (x4)
---> Play Riff 1 + 2 over:
   Would everybody just look at the hook
   I took it straight from my brain
   Reminds me of the time I was insane
   And so I wrote it when I was loaded
   And voted the least likely to turn out like a square
---> Play Riff 4 over:
   I'm singing it for your mind and no
   I'm singing it for your ears
   Jump up and down and leave the ground and know that's why your here
   And they say down diggey down down down diggey diggey down
   Stronger Longer
   Line up your ways of know what I'm thinking say it again
---> Play Riff 1 + 2 over:
   And now I'm with my home team back with a good seat
   I gladwick like chadwick to tell you what I mean
   We're laying back on it just like good sex
   Smooth yet psychodelic its called the nix hex-um
---> Play Riff 3 (x4)
---> Play Riff 5 (x2)
---> Play Riff 5 over:
   The monologue of a singalong
   Las vanderas de San Juan piden pannoles don
   Go tell it on a mountain, then again bring a friend
   You'll may begin dizzy with a sense of vertigo
---> Play Riff 1 + 2 over:
   Uplifted soul from the view that I'm on nothin' but love
   But love
   But love in my blood sonic in the vortex
   This is the hip thing
   Called the Nix Hex
   Dig it
---> Play Solo over Riff 3
---> Play Ending
