Slinky
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I was at this club minding my tea
I saw this fine young thing so I thought that I would see
I don’t smoke but I asked her for a cigarette
I know it’s lame but I haven’t got a better one yet
You guess the rest I’m not the type to fess
I sing this song because I tell you she’s the best

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me

So I’ll just pretend
But I feel like
Mackadocious she’s sweet and precocious
She’s the one girl that I just dig, love, yes I’m not above this
You think that’s wack then bro you lack
You bore me that macho crap makes me snore, see, me,
I’m all about the females, the women, the jewels of this world
Those flowers like that slinky girl

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me

So I’ll just pretend
But I feel like

Well I met her one night I’d seen her before
She stole my brain then showed me the door
Girls that do me like that there’s not many
But I’ve met one, that’s plenty
I’m glad to say that she gets her way
She can move me and that’s okay
Has the power to turn paper inky
The girl has me and she’s so

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me


Feels So Good
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Martinez; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Martinez

Well everybody got opinion that’s loud and unbending
I spend my time healing and mending together
It’s a question of whether live positive, well I give
P-Nut is a brother that’s always got a girlfriend
I say the lyrics that’ll put you in a whirlwind
Ese’ has the wisdom of a Noble Laureate
I’m down for our days of glory
It’s easy to do when you’re up with Sexton
A rythmatic genius churnin’ out the next one
But you know bro I flow in this circumstance
You’ll get your chance

Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while
I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go

In your face
Feels so good
In your face
Feels so good

Go Ese’
Trip this get up on the tipness
Don’t sweat or let it set once you grab it
Come and get some to have and to flaunt
Know about it know I got the news if you want
I pocket I lock it I sock it your mind I rock it
Shell shocked it maybe I groove dammit I know it
F up the truth that’s how I show it
In the half light Ese’ sounds Nicks a night light
I’m rappin’ he’s snappin’ on
Something you might like now
Don’t frown if I chose to
Cut it up brothers you can’t take it with you
Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while
I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go

In your face
Feels so good
In your face
Feels so good

Get this my stream of consciousness is a sea
Much like Bukowski with a rage
Speaking to the page beasts in the cage
Jumping off the stage, diving
Thriving, striving, for a better day Ese’
Beat back by flesh shattered doors
Bragging fists to the sky you’re feelin’ high
Yes to live and die

Just take a moment to have a fit once in a while
I do it daily and like it but that’s my style, here I go
In your face
Feels so good
In your face
Feels so good


Do You Right
Music: Sexton/Hexum; Lyrics: Sexton/Hexum

I don’t insist I am no fabulist
You can take it take it don’t leave it
Just let loose I will tell the truth
I hope you like it, my thoughts all I got

I stare at the curl of your hair
At the stregnth of your charm
I feel like I’d give my left arm
But I’m sure that you’ve heard this before

And when we spend the night I check if you’re alright
How it was, I don’t mean to bug
If it ended now I would just think of how
How it was, in love yes in love

I stare at the curl of your hair
At the stregnth of your charm
I feel like I’d give my left arm
But I’m sure that you’ve heard this before

Like I said before I’ll say it once more
Knew you would make me feel so good
Wanna do you right
Can’t get enough this is the stuff
Life’s about and it trips me out
Wanna do you right

You are so good to me I just want to see
That picture of you you gave me
Though it fell out of my pocket
It hangs like a locket in my head
It’ll be there til’ I’m dead

I stare at the curl of your hair
At the stregnth of your charm
I feel like I’d give my left arm
But I’m sure that you’ve heard this before

Like I said before I’ll say it once more
Knew you would make me feel so good
Wanna do you right
Can’t get enough this is the stuff
Life’s about and it trips me out
Wanna do you right

Like I said before I’ll say it once more
Knew you would make me feel so good
Wanna do you right
Can’t get enough this is the stuff
Life’s about and it trips me out
Wanna do you, do you, do you, do you, do you

Like I said before I’ll say it once more
Knew you would make me feel so good
Wanna do you right
Can’t get enough this is the stuff
Life’s about and it trips me out
Wanna do you right


!@#$ the *@#&% (Fuck the bullshit)
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Mahoney/Wills/Martinez; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Mahoney/Wills/Martinez

You know I’m ready, yes to rock steady
My name’s not Betty or Teddy, but Nick
And I’m what you might call a heretic
Yes, and I am from Nebraska
My girl is satisfied, you can ask her
You know I’ve never visited Alaska
Huh, where the oil was spilt
That drunken captain should be killed
For polluting the sea, an atrocity
He still walks free, well
This one goes to all the birds that drown
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

Just fuck the bullshit ?????
It’s time to throw down and so I said it words of
Wisdom that will keep you guessing cause
I’m tired of laying and I’m tired of messing around
With all those suckers
Yes, those stupid mother fuckers
Who put down what we do
We stand alone with the group that’s new
If I was a dwarf, I’d surely be Dopey
I’m a stone wheat thin you can not culture
Kick in the teeth a condescending frown
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

Yeah, right about now I’d like to turn the mic over to my man
SA Martinez

I am sly in the mix I am the mix master
Death and destructor, lyric conductor
Rollin with the rhythm of the rhyme I’m rollin
?????
Tim, he leads giutar,he’s got the jets
Now the b-boys rockin breakin’ moves on the floor
311’s stepping out and you’re yellin for more
I’m hoping, I’m poetry in motion
?????
P-Nut, the bass drum is booming
And in your mouth the rhythm is booming
P to the N to the U to the T

Just fuck the has-been’s and their stupid-ass rambling
Brothers saying bullshit you can’t come through with
Do it in the basement no complacence
It’s time to kick the fuck in
Begin to win no sin and then
Share it, declare it in the public domain
Refrain
I’d be perfectly glad if rap was a fad but it’s not
So I’d thought I’d come out with a shot
Super dumb lyrics make you think I’m a clown
I don’t give a fuck it’s time to throw down

Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit it’s time to throw down

That’s right, knockin’ them down
Nineties, all of that


Summer Of Love
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I thought about my scene today
And I’ve finally got the words to say
The truth is cutting like a knife
Gonna use it to cut away my strife
The grass is green and the sky is blue
My head is clear and my thoughts are true

Callin’ out young and old
We got a thing that can’t be sold
The time that takes to rise above
In the summer of love

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

I wake up each day to the sun
And it’s hard to chose what to do for fun
A blissful world surrounds me
And my brothers and sisters love is always free
Don’t you know that I’ve waited my whole life
Just to show what’s inside and let my love flow
That’s what I’m sayin’

Callin’ out young and old
We got a thing that can’t be sold
The time that takes to rise above
In the summer of love

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

[Dub break]

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

I said it’s the summer of love
My head is clear, and my thoughts are true


Unity
Music: Sexton/Hexum; Lyrics: Sexton/Hexum

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

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

Oh god I can’t believe
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

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 in your face know your place come on like

Word they come like a heard but they said
We’d drop like a lead zeppelin in your face
But that’s nothin’ hometeam
I ain’t got to my ace in the whole 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

Oh god I can’t believe it this grooves 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

Swing I’m doin’ my thing
Groove I’m showin’ and provin’
That maverick deal that maks you feel ill
It runs in my family

Steppin’ and goin’ and lyin’ and cryin’
My brain is on fire it feels like I’m flying through space
Yea, doing my best but It’ll get better this much I confess

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
My bros are down for the unity
311 is down for the unity
Unanimity of the unity


Damn
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

Word up, I’m talking to you
I’m making dope rhymes, that’s what I do
Like a mad man, you know it’s bad man
I slam a good goddamn

Well I’ve been burned so goddamn badly
I could just sit and sing the blues
But instead I’ll make a fist, yeah
And make my own good news

Take my advice, yeah
You’ll pay the price
Make it funky like this…
Good god…..Damn

I drop a syllable like “yo”
What else is dissin’ me
Huh, it’s pissin me off
Rock me baby, WHAT!?

You don’t mean that crap
But what the hell, if it sells
Damn, you’re a sham
No thank you ma’am, BITCH!!

Oh, I’ve been burnt badly
I could just sit and sing the blues
But instead I’ll make a fist, yeah
And make my own good news

Take my advice
You’ll pay the price
Make it funky like this!!!
Good goddamn, tell you what, alles klar

And the nightmare of publicity begins
This is the time to find who are your true friends
I drain my brain, to be original
Build character, aboriginal
American music is what I grew into
?????? Fuck you!!!!

I say we fear no evolution
Stand up, musical revolution
Follow me because we can never stop
And we’ll never give
Cause this is how, we breath and live
And some of them whine
And some of them bitch
They cannot do it, we’ll never switch
We do it for ourselves, we do it for you
If you don’t like it well, I hope you do

* Thanks to Chris Simon


Down South
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins/Mahoney; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins/Mahoney

Let me take you down south
Hear it from the dover’s mouth
The rhythm will make you want to move your body
I had it once and never ever forgot it
Feel the rhythm of rhapsody
Your body moves in raw ecstasy
Explosive eruption beyond compare

Take my advice don’t think twice
Let me take you way down south

Step back cuz the funk is here and
The base is kickin’ straight to your ear man
Because it’s like that so don’t talk back
And if you do then you’re gonna get the back slap
Down south that’s an enigma
But to you it’s a stupid dumb stigma
That’s right it’s outta sight

Let me tell you ’bout my baby
She loves me don’t mean maybe
She knows what I think and I don’t have to say it
I love her so I don’t have to play it
We sit and drink in the sun
I raise my glass and say she’s the one
Cool breeze light squeeze life
Take my advice don’t think twice
Let me take you way down south

Step back I’m about to get hectic
Chalk it up as another dialectic
Hard like a jam
Smooth like a ballad
Call it what you want but I call it sound salad
A salad grown in the garden of Eden
Seekin’ out pleasures like my boys in Sweden
That’s right the grooves tight like

Sit back just relax, let your mind unwind
Pull your good thing close, let tranquility surround
Psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic
Grind fiend roots ‘core soul music what have you

Step back and think about the topic of this song
Strong innuendo end over end goes your brain
I won’t say it’s plain figure it out here’s a clue
It’s about winding, grinding, finding that spot
That get’s her hot the joy of giving pleasure
Is beyond measure


Rollin
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Wills/Mahoney; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Wills/Mahoney

Rollin’ windows down kickback trollen
I’m holdin’ and foldin’ see no cold in the streets
Dirty looks – huh – we think it’s funny
Workin’ class rares scrounge up all the money
But we’re coolin’ in the middle June
I’m gettin’ girls gettin’ lit and I’m making up tunes
Believe that boy I’ll bet I’ll bet I’m trollen
Just lookin’ for some trouble and we be rollin’

Now I’m a tell a tale to you straight
Gonna tell you a story
It’s not a fairy tale and it gets a little glory
It happened one night when Tequila was full
We were walkin’ to my car unaware unknowin’
I stepped up crossed the the street in no hurry
And what happens next – it gets a little blurry
This chump nearly hits me in a green pintow so I threw my bottle BANG!
It broke his window
He screeched to a halt jumped out of his car
I stepped straight to him gonna make him see stars yes
The situation was going to explode
Thought I should give him a warning said ya better hit the road

I knew it would be easy if i dagged him first
So I cracked him in the face all of the sudden with a burst
I hit im with a right then a left didn’t land
But he turned his head and I broke my hand

Whatcha gonna do?
Do whatcha gonna

I got a cast on my hand and the girls think I’m a jerk
I can’t play my bass and I can’t go to work
This is a true story it all did happen
Better yet I regret that I’m rollin’ up strappin’
Been two years now since this all took place
I learn from being stupid I learn from my mistakes
And now I’m livin’ peace edifyin’ and trollen
Can’t say it wasn’t fun in those days of rollin’
Rollin’
Rollin’

* Thanks to Jim Dupre


Right Now
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Grubb; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Grubb

And I, I notice the tapestries on the wall as well
And I, I stand up and hit my head on the mobile
And you, you look around too
And we, time passes easily

I’ve opened up my mind
So you can step inside
You can expect to find
A scenic ride

Pointyhead pizzeria perfect penetration
Mezcal cuts off my brain communication
Belligerence, lost my intellegence
Talkin mess like shut up and listen to me
Because cuttin’ through the crap is my specialty
Like a bomb I’m droppin yes a ton a lead
You’re tryin’ to figure out the last thing I said
I’m a Redwood, I love to be a tree yes I’m a Druid
My words they’re flowin’ out like a fluid
Never give in never conform
I’ll be bustin out rhymes in a triplet form
Right Now

In another room, I sit and contemplate
That winter night, my words were filled with hate
In second sight, I should have known my fate
But it’s allright, now we’re in a different state

Chorus

Expiate, to make amends for hostilities
It’s easy to see that for me, in reality
I’m not one of those fools
With an ecclesiastical whitewash
To set my ethical standards
You’ll never cathc me lookin’ to Ann Landers
Or Moses or the law or even Buddha
If there’s one thing I know
It’s always be true to myself
And learn from experience
Educated by nights of violence, trips to jail,
Broken knuckles and friendships
But that gives me the power to write a groove that rips
Right Now
I Am


C.U.T.M.
Music: Hexum/Wills; Lyrics: Hexum/Wills

Hexum, Sexton, Mahoney, and Wills
We groove so fuckin’ hard it gives you the chills
Well I’ve been stricken
The bass is kickin’
When suckers step to me, boy, I give them a lickin’

Chorus
Cosmic Utopian Thrivin’ Mission, my baby
Cosmic Utopian Thrivin’ Mission, my baby
I feel good
Yo bad self

Well, I am the Hexum, call me Nick
I live by the code of cosmic
I’ve come to say, we’re here to stay
Utopian way we’ll play today
We’ve got the drive, we are so live
Won’t take a dive, we’re gonna thrive
We got a condition called ambition
To the cosmic utopian thrivin’ mission

Chorus

Witness this, yo the pissed lyricist
In your face celebratin’ a brand new race
We know colors are just brothers and some others
Drive on the ginger but they failed to mention
The consequence of no conscience
You can’t fool, I’m schoolin’ you with the new school
Now speakin on a round, step back mother fucker, I’m goin’ to town

Chorus

I feel good
Break it down
I got one more rhyme

Yes, the verbs I got
They hit that spot
The crowd is freakin’
And bro., I’m peekin’
When I’m on stage, you’re havin’ a fit
But without my brothers, baby, I ain’t shit

Chorus
