"All Re-mixed Up" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Doug Martinez....
You've got to trust your instinct
And let go of regret
You've got to bet on yourself now star
'Cause that's your best bet
Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
We come with the funky style that gets us known for the show
And we'll mix the hip hop reggae if we say it is so
And fuck the naysayers cause they don't mean a thing
Cause this is what style we bring
Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
There's something I need to get off my chest
And no matter what may come to shine
The dream will always be mine
All mixed up, you don't know what to do
Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But the first could be the last, so just get off of your ass
All mixed up, you don't know what to do
Next thing you turnaround and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But you know this will pass, so just get off of your ass
You've got to trust your instinct
And let go of regret
You've got to bet on yourself now star
'Cause that's your best bet
Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
Sick sick bit got to have it
Like bustin' in on a session but you got to call it quits
Sick sick bit just can't quit
Fact that you don't even know makes it fully legit
Now it's morning but last night's on my mind
There's something I need to get off my chest
And no matter may come to shine
The dream will always be mine
You keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill dem stunning
You keep me coming,
That is agal that'll kill dem stunning
You keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill dem stunning
You keep me coming,
That is a gal that'll kill dem stunning
You make menervous, throat dry
My brain is empty, don't know why
But I saw you doing something
Which is really truly nothing
But you could bust me out all day
Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do
Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do
And why did I try when I knew it was no and
Why did I try when I say it was so
But save it for late we should just let it skate
'Cause the waiting feel is fine

    General CommentI love it...cuz they dont cut anything out from the original version, and its just flat out great and it sets up the "keep me coming" part perfect. One thing that 311 is awesome at is making great transitions from hard to soft to hard or whatever the combination may be.

    General CommentTo me this song is still about standing up to adversity and not dwelling on bad things that have happened to you, the extra verse is just another example of being "all mixed up" about something and just having to let go of regret and let things run their course.

    P.S. pulseox is wrong about them adding the extra verse live starting in 1999, they've actually been doing it since mid '96. I have 2 shows from 1996 where they sing the extra verse, way old skool.

    P.P.S It should be noted that there is no studio version of All Mixed Up with the extra verse(a.ka. All Re-Mixed Up), the extra verse is only played when the song is played live.

    General CommentPEACE EVERYONE...SO YEAH IM FROM CENTRAL JERZ AND THERE THIS CHICK I KNOW. WE MET ACTUALLY ON A DATING SITE AND WE DECIDED TO BE JUST STRICTLY FRIENDS 1ST, GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND SEE WHERE IT LEADS. SO HANGING OUT FOR A MONTH NOW,THEN WE GO TO A CONCERT THE NEXT DAY WE ARE TEXTN SAYS SHE DOESN'T FEEL THE ROMANCE. I DIDN'T EVEN ASK HER OUT SO I THINK SHE WAS NOTICING THAT I WAS GETTING INTO HER TOO FAST NOT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT HER FIRST.

    SO I THINK IM ALL MIXED UP U KNOW THE VERSE: All mixed up you dont know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But the first could be the last so just get off your ass
    All mixed up you dont know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But you know this will pass so just get off your ass

    WE ARE VERY SIMILAR IN PERSONALITY. SO ITS LIKE LOOKING INTO A MIRROR. BUT SHES NOT TRUSTING HER INSTINCTS. SHE HAS A LOT OF REGRET IN HER LIFE. WHEN WE CHILL SOMETIMES SHE MAKES ME NERVOUS AND MY THROAT DRY BUT THAT'S BECAUSE WE ARE NOT SOBER LOL SHE MAKES ME HAVE TROUBLE THINKING AND I DON'T KNOW WHY, JUST KEEP THINKING TO MYSELF HOW PERFECT SHE IS WE DON'T EVEN ARGUE ALWAYS TRY TO UNDERSTANDS EACH OTHERS PERSPECTIVES AND EVENTUALLY COME TO AN AGREEMENT.

    SO NOW ABOUT THIS ONE: And why did I try when I knew it was no and
    Why did I try when I saw it was so
    But save it for late we should just let it skate
    Cause the waiting feel is fine

    WAITING TO GET TO KNOW HER IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT. BECAUSE WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.

    MAYBE U GUYS MAY NOT AGREE WITH ME ON THESE MEANINGS BUT U KNOW WHAT. I LIVE FOR MUSIC AND I HAVE TROUBLE EXPRESSING MYSELF SO EVERY SONG I HEAR I THINK ON MANY LEVELS. LIKE SYMBOLISM AND A PHILOSOPHICAL P.O.V.

    PEACE AND LOVE IM OUT
