* Most of the stuff they play in this song is using single notes.  I used
  to think it was all 5th chords too but it's not.  The reason it sounds
  like 5th chords is because there are two guitars playing, as well as
  thick layering during recording.  I've watched video of them playing
  and they use single notes more than anything else.

Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro over:
   If you want more beats for your buck there's no luck
   If you want more beats for your buck there's no luck
   If you want more beats for your buck there's no luck
   If you want more beats for your buck there's no luck
---> Play Verse over:
   Then there's no luck
   Then again if you came for drama then I can't understand
   Music critics, music critics
   Not afraid of a guy who'll tell you he's never been in a mix
   Been in a mix, Been in a mix
   From the grassroots, So big up to our friends
   Every crew every clique and every posse
   Pick up to nod their heads not of hypocrisy
---> Play Chorus over:
   You're a Transistor, lightning resistor
   Conducting to the mother star
   That's what you are
---> Play Post-Chorus over:
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh
---> Play Intro over:
   Renegade sound system 311
   Renegade sound system 311
   Renegade sound system 311
   Renegade sound system 311
---> Play Verse over:
   311, brothers from another planet
   And here once again
   Automatic, automatic
   Quantum saints of the universe in a holographic
   Cosmic remix, cosmic remix
   From the mysterious blue planet, we can breath anywhere
   Underwater, out in space, and in LA
   The pollution is no problem for these homey's
---> Play Chorus over:
   You're a Transistor, lightning resistor
   Conducting to the mother star
   That's what you are
---> Play Post-Chorus over:
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh
---> Play Bridge (x2)
---> Play Reggae Part over:
   You're a Transistor, lightning resistor
   Conducting to the mother star
   That's what you are
---> Play Fill 1 (x1)
---> Play Ending A + B over:
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh
   Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh
