Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Drum Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   I flip when I kick it trippin it
   So I can check shit not in a daily style
   But once in every while so I can
   File check file check the files of my brain
   Many of meaning manage to come from the insane
   And the butcher the baker the fabulous drama maker
   A cracker on a truck goin' breaker, breaker
   Listen to everyone then disregard it
   The maningful shit comes back back to where it started
   In your cranium surrounded by pot like a geranuim
   A capital 2 burns in my mind give me some peace
   I looked at her I looked at him and neither one did know
   Where the wild thoughts grow check it out
---> Play Riff 3:
   I look to absolutes and there's absolutely none
   The truth is what you shoot for not one
   Nothing brings it all together the journeys never done
   I'd sing you Stormy Weather but it's been sung so
   Let's have some fun
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Three Eleven has grassroots come on now
   Three Eleven has grassroots true
   Three Eleven has grassroots for your momma
   Three Eleven has grassroots
---> Play Riff 4 over:
   Challenge comes and goes and there will be another
   I say bring it on
   The roots that grow underground are as big as the tree
   That you see if not it will fall down
---> Play Riff 5 over:
   We waste so many moments standing on convention
   The only survey is when our heart pays no attention
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Move with persistence cover much distance
   Knowing no perdition that's my game for instance
   Three Eleven true to no tradition
   And the Three Eleven crew not dow with convention
   But a hundred different people already told what we about
   So I make not attempt to try and suss the stupid out
   I'd turned into a roughneck that was not my intention
   It doesn't even really matter unless I fail to mention that
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Peace to all crews that want some peace
   First the Mid then the West then we slide through the East
   A piece to any crew that want a piece
---> Play Riff 1 (2nd half) over:
   But peace to all crews that want peace
   Check it out
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   I look to absolutes and there's absolutely none
   The truth is what you shoot for not one
   Nothing brings it all together the journeys never done
   I'd sing you Stormy Weather but it's been sung so
   Let's have some fun
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Three Eleven has grassroots come on now
   Three Eleven has grassroots true
   Three Eleven has grassroots for your momma
   Three Eleven has grassroots
---> Play Riff 4 over:
   Challenge comes and goes and there will be another
   I say bring it on
   The roots that grow underground are as big as the tree
   That you see if not it will fall down

   We waste so many moments standing on convention
   The only survey is when our heart pays no attention
---> Play Solo over Riff 5
