"Everything You Need" as written by Andrew Alphonse Van Dorsselaer, April-cheyne Coates, Gene Pistilli and Walter Murphy....
Like walkin' on the moon was such a good feeling
Lyin' in bed and I'm staring at the ceiling
Can't wake up on Monday morning
Thinkin' about what makes me yawn and

As I look outside it's raining, pouring
Cats and dogs I want to do no more an'
When I gotta get up an get out my bed
Rather sleep in late and smoke a be

Load instead
'Cause the harder you try
Less you succeed
Don't try at all and get everything you need

'Cause the harder you fall
More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'
'Cause you best not step on me

I said the harder you try
Less you succeed
Don't try at all and get everything you need
'Cause the harder you fall

More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'
'Cause you best not step on me
'Cause if you're ugly on the outside

It don't matter
If you're beauty on the inside
It overpowers
If the beauty on the outside

It won't matter
If you're ugly on the inside
Baby don't want it
And if you the type of person getting no recognition

Reach inside your pockets
And then all your money missin' an'
You want to shoot your guns
But you got no ammunition

Open up your mind and find
It's time to take a listen
The harder you try
Less you succeed

Don't try at all and get everything you need
'Cause the harder you fall
More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'

'Cause you best not step on me
I said the harder you try
Less you succeed
Don't try at all and get everything you need

'Cause the harder you fall
More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'
'Cause you best not step on me

It's always hard when you're working for the other man
Tyrin' to make a dollar with the palms of my empty hand
It seems so easily
But it never seems to last long

Thinkin' thatcha got it for a minute then a minute's gone
The harder you try
Less you succeed
Don't try at all and get everything you need

'Cause the harder you fall
More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'
'Cause you best not step on me

I said the harder you try
Less you succeed
Don't try at all and get everything you need
'Cause the harder you fall

More it's gon' bleed
Watch where you steppin'
'Cause you best not step on me

    General CommentIt's about being chill, smoking herb, drinking beer, and being happy. There's no need to worry about stuff because it all turns out in the end.

    General Commenteven without being mainstream, slightly stoopid reaches who it needs to reach. that's why their concerts are so much fun.. there's so much energy and united love for this amazing band.

    General CommentThe reason they aren't mainstream is because they choose to be. I honestly hope they never go mainstream because that's the best part about them, they get following from people who are TRUE fans like me and all the other stoopid heads ya know? Slightly Stoopid is for the people who LOVE GOOD MUSIC.

    General Commentthough that is cool and everything that they don't want to be mainstream, I really think they should do it. I'm tired of shitass music being played on the radio. People need to get exposed to some good music right here.

    General Commentall these people are right. slightly stoopid is so crazy good and it's so strange that nobody knows about them. especially live... they are fucking amazing live. definitely something any pot smoker or just chill person needs to experience. they are groovy and have a great stage presence and pass the energy onto the crowd.. and oh man.. it's just such a good time

    General CommentI love slightly stoopid, but i must say that im a little disappointed that i'm starting to hear them on the radio. I heard 2 am today in the car and my jaw dropped. But even if they are starting to get out there on the radio and such you can never stop lovin their chilled out music. best live performers i must say.
