* 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

Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh

Yeh heh heh heh heh, Yeh heh heh heh heh

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
