You know patience, pushing a dream, brings my demons to life
Songs are vacations, our soul salvation
Will you suspend your disbelief?
I'd like to be the thief that steals 
That jaded necklace that you're always wearing, yo
I'd take that thing and, with my knife, I'd start pairing so
Chop, chop, piece, piece, and send it to the Raiders of L.A.
There are so many, this land of plenty
The things we lack straight square within our grasp

Ever you do, ever you think
Whether you're brown or you're pink
I think not, thinking's better 'bout it
When you stop to think
The jaded ones will wither
While the optimistic grow 
I settle that a bet will let a large amount

So, indulge me just for a minute, imagine no one holdin' out
All trying for peace, my brothers down
Some others down, it happens slow, think you should know 
The direction that the world goes, peace

They number six to make them feel like men
They one up us 'cause we're much too much for them
OK, the method to the mischiefs over there, then Psych, 
shazam, we strike with the lightnin'
Through space we move and emit an ill tracer
We're set to light your world, kid, we're your maker
Check it, our karma, plus the avant garde
Our style of out sect wise to ways comes to wreck


While the masses mill around curse in anguish
311 stompin' 'em down with the quickness
We see all the crews that be comin' around now 
Takin' they notes to get our sweet ass style down

Fending off the foes that try to shut us down
Like the warrior souls we are, we never give in
So what we call is dope, we know will come around
Chill in Southern Cali., y'all
That's how we livin'
We spend our lives learning
If you like learning, life is large
It could never be only the ups
The downs will always come around, yeah, yeah 
Like a drive through Estes Park, you savor the sun
But when the clouds come, make animals
