Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Riff 1 (x1)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Even if I cared to try I couldn't please them
   Their petty complaints, stupid restraints ain't gonna work
   It's all to cheese and
   Regret, don't fret, just push it away and say I'm like the wind
   Relentless and irritating a position that I think worth stating
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Swing I'm doin' my thing groove I'm showin' and provin'
   That maverick deal that makes you feel ill
   It runs in my family
   Fussin' and cussin' and bitchin' and kickin'
   If you ask me I think that you're just chicken to try
   Don't pretend you're my friend
   Remember I said it one day you'll regret it
---> Play Riff 3
---> Play Chorus I over:
   Oh God I can't believe it
   You have asked and so you shall receive it in the ear
   Victory draws near but no fear my dear I'll be here another year
---> Play Chorus II (x2)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   What's it all about I scan a new plan for the next year
   In nineties try these you wanna just bust out
   I cool out and I'm done bein' mad
   To just know hate well that's so sad what a life, strife
   Backfire and your face know your place come on like
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Word they come like a herd but they said
   We'd drop like a lead zeppelin in your face
   But that's nothin' home team I ain't got to my ace in the hole
   Yet, bet that I will get my fill, get my thrill we'll
   Be back one day and we'll try not to spite
   But until then you stay out of my sight
---> Play Riff 3
---> Play Chorus I over:
   Oh, God, I can't believe it this groove's so dope
   I'm about to have a fit and here's a flash
   I freaked so hard I got whiplash
   And when it comes to writing stay away from our stash
---> Play Chorus II (x2)
---> Play Bridge
---> Play Riff 2 (Slowly & w/emphasis) over:
   Swing I'm doin' my thing groove I'm showin' and provin'
   That maverick deal that makes you feel ill, it runs in our family
   Stoppin' and goin' and lyin' and trying' 
   My brain is on fire it feels like I'm flying through space
   Yes doing my best but it'll get better this much I confess
---> Play Riff 3
---> Play Chorus I over:
   Oh God I can't believe it but when this era's through I'll say that's it
   Edification will take place pull up the reigns and get out of the race
---> Play Chorus II over:
   My bros are down for the Unity, 311 is down for the Unity
   Unanimity of the Unity, that's right
---> Play Chorus II (x1)
---> End on an open E (022100)
