"Ghettochip Malfunction (Hell Yes 8-Bit Remix)" as written by John Robert King, Michael S. Simpson and Beck David Hansen....
Looking for my place on assembly lines
Fake prizes rising out of the bomb holes
Skeleton boys hyped up in purple
Smoke rings blow from across the disco
Make notes, burn like broken equipment
Looking for shelter via juxtaposition
Thought control, those written confessions
Two dimensions, dumb your head down
Duck, don't look now, company missiles
Power is raunchy when the cops are watching
Make your dreams out of paper mache
Clinched wasted hate taste-tested

Hell yes, now I'm moving this way, I'm doing this thing (please enjoy)
Hell yes, now I'm turning it on, I'm working my legs
Hell yes, now I'm calling you out, I'm switching my plates (please enjoy)
Hell yes now I'm cleaning the floor, my beat is correct

Hi. Yea, that's it.
Yea, that's it.
Yea, that's it.
Hi.

Stretched to the limit, attention spared
Snap back the track, collapsin' the laugh tracks
Noise response, applause and hand claps
Floodgates open to the sound of the rainbow
Makin' points on the verge of pointless
Fools anointed to the follower's fanfare
Look for the common, not superficial
Code Red cola war conformity crisis
Perfunctory idols rewriting their bibles
With magic markers running out of their ink
Lives and White Out, turn the lights out
Fax machine anthems, get your damned hands up

Hell yes, now I'm moving this way, I'm doing this thing (please enjoy)
Hell yes, now I'm turning it on, I'm working my legs
Hell yes, now I'm calling you out, I'm switching my plates (please enjoy)
Hell yes, now I'm cleaning the floor, my beat is correct

Yes.
Hi.
I like your bass.
Your beat is nice.
Yea, that's it.
Yes. Yes.

Hell yes, now I'm moving this way, I'm doing this thing (please enjoy)
Hell yes, now I'm turning it on, I'm working my legs
Hell yes, now I'm calling you out, I'm switching my plates (please enjoy)
Hell yes, now I'm cleaning the floor, my beat is correct

Hell yes.

    General Comment...I think the second verse is about presidential elections and such. Everyone's listening to the news and seeing who to vote for (the news is telling them to who to vote for) And they celebrate their choice and amplify it.

    The rest of the song is about his new sound. The nintendo sound... (awesome sound)

    Hell Yess!

    but why the hell does every site say "via juxtaposition"
    its definetaly "readjust your position"

    General CommentIn the second verse, I'm pretty sure it's "attention spans" and "breaking points".
