"Inner Light Spectrum" as written by and Lyrics Martinez....
When I shadow box inside my skull
bothered by the senselessness
I wish for the messiah Indian woman, Babylon

There is one thing I will say on life we are livin, yeah
let it flow, 'cause it won't stop
and when the kind consciousness, yes, come unto you
you will know and it won't stop
when I wipe the sleep from my eyes
will my fondest dream please come true
crush my heart with a hammer make a purer one, Babylon

There is one thing I will say on life we are livin, yeah
let it flow, 'cause it won't stop
and when the kind consciousness, yes, come unto you
you will know and it won't stop

But mean people I say choke on it gagging all the way
may you remember the texture for days
but you'll get used to the feeling of your pride
of your pride, of your pride
chugalug it, chugalug it, time after time
time after time, time after time
learning your lesson, learning your lesson will do you fine
do you fine, do you fine

    General Commenti think this song has a lot to do with just being positive and positive vibes and such..and just like maybe mind games...with someone dissing you..and you dream of a better place where u can escape it...something that maybe...

    this is a very trippy tune....

    General Commenti think this is how SA thinks that only positive people should be on earth and that he himself sometimes is negative but he always fixes that but the people who are mean all the time should suffer. and yes this is very very trippy

    General CommentYeah, i agree with both of you, this song is about all that and basically just how to find that one place in your mind and soul where you can just chill and feel great all the time, and f**k the nay sayers tryin to bring you out of that special place. This song sounds so good when your drunk or straight buzzin'. Sa's got some crucial lyrics. Am I right?

    General CommentI think SA is talking about the dreams people have and if they don't work out life goes on and its not the end of the road. Make the best of things. This song is so chillen. I got one thing to say: anyone who says 311 sold out with Transistor is STUPID. This CD is bar far and away the best 311 CD. I listen to it non stop and never get tired of it. It is SO postive. You don't find much GOOD music so postive around these days. SPOKEN.

    General Commentwhile i agree with you guys, i got something more out of it. i think the song IS about positivity and feeling great but it's also about being high. which of course as we all know is positive and makes you feel great.

    "And when the kind consiousness yes come unto you
    You will know and it won't stop"

    this part is about getting high and just going with the flow, then the song just melts into what you guys summed up.

    and Soundboy you are right, Transistor is my favorite album from 311 by far.

    General CommentWow, thank you Zeppelyn, someone on here who doens't think every song is about drugs simply positivity. SA must have been doing alot of meditation during the making of this album.
