Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 (x4)
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
Nick:
   I'm in a good way on a bad day thinking of a plan a way to stay
   On top of it, nailin' in I have a fit if I sit, sit doin' nothin'
   Which is what I done so far but I carve a niche with sits in 
   My good things brain layin' the tracks like a loco mo spark the Jay
---> Play Verse 2 over:
   Table Rosa is my brain don't mean to bug or drive you insane
   Don't have to guess just what I'm sane (sayin')
   If I had a point, I'd say it plain
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   Dammit my brain is blank and that's lame
   I would be a liar if I said I was inspired
   Nothin' to say but that's ok
---> Play Chorus over:
   Nod your head to this
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   Messin' around, I'm not having it you bite the hand I put your head out
   I come to know a travesty and so sad to see
   The scene dictated by frustrated former musicians
   Switchin' the emphasis from art to money
---> Play Bridge over:
   But I demand autonomy what else I tell you what's wrong to me
   The industry's ability to manufacture stars
   They churn them out like Iwo Jima makes cars
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   But the blame lies not with those suits for trying it's the sheep
   That keep on buying that souless crap whatever they put in front of ya
   The hysteria of America
---> Play Chorus over:
   Nod your head to this
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   Well, stress is the enemy and not a friend to me
   One thing I see is to be easy goin' throwin' down sit back
   And watch my life flowin' and knowing life is but a dream
---> Play Bridge over:
   You can ask my home team, let me tell you how I seem
   My economy seems to be in words not action actually ya see yes
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   I'm a tempest and I rarely rest but that's what you go to do
   If you want to be the best
   So I'm on a threshold so don't tell me no
   I just flow and know I can count on my bros
---> Play Verse 2 over:
   Table Rosa is my brain don't mean to bug or drive you insane
   Don't have to guess just what I'm sane (sayin')
   If I had a point, I'd say it plain
---> Play Intro/Verse 1 over:
   Dammit my brain is blank and that's lame
   I would be a liar if I said I was inspired
   Nothin' to say but that's ok
---> Play Chorus over:
   Nod your head to this, to this, to this
---> Play Fill 1 over:
   Don't you know that the devil he's in me and God she is too
   My Yin hates my Yang, but what the hell ya gonna do
   I choose a rocky ass path but that's how I like it
   Life's a bowl of punch go ahead and spike it
---> Play Ending (x1)
