"Something Out of Nothing" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Doug Martinez....
We are the wind and the sea
Sun reflected you to me
We are the moon and the stars
Darkness hiding mystical heart
We have just begun
The dreams, the nightmares of everyone
We are mysterious things
Eternal, perpetual, and ending
We are the yin and the yang
The ending, the middle, and the big bang
We are the zero and one
The desert, the voice, and the ocean

[Bridge]
I've one conclusion
It's not illusion
But it's creativity
The supernatural thing that happens between you and me, yeah

[Chorus:]
Because it's magic
Something out of nothing
Magic
Something out of nothing
The paranormal became normal
Every time you're through the door
Don't care what they say
That's what I'll say

We are silver and gold
The eyes that see
The hands that hold
We are all you heard
A whisper to scream every word
You are everything
Eternal, perpetual, and ending
I am a mystical
The sweet science of seeing the whole
We are creative
Everyone of us is how we live, yeah
We are positive
Everyone of us is how we live

[Bridge]
I've one conclusion
It's not illusion
But it's creativity
The supernatural thing that happens between you and me, yeah

[Chorus]
Because it's magic
Something out of nothing
Magic
Something out of nothing
The paranormal became normal
Every time you're through the door
Don't care what they say
That's what I'll say

Magic, something out of nothing [Repeat: x1]
The paranormal became normal
Every time you're through the door
Don't care what they say
That's what I'll say

Because it's magic [Repeat: x2]
Something out of nothing
Don't care what they say
That's what I'll say

    General CommentThis song is interesting because it clearly is about "Oneness" and how we are all gods realized, creating in the moment. Within the first few lines of the song they explain how we're all connected and are part of the Universe and it is because of this connection that we are one with the Universe, ultimately making us creative beings, Gods realized. I love this song!

    General CommentIt is magic how everything just is. Also makes me think about how our bodies know how to do stuff without our brain even telling it to.....like our liver, stomach, kidneys, etc all know how to do stuff on their own. Magic. We are all one.

    This part stood out to me. That last line rings true to me after having recently come to the realization that other people are just another version of yourself with their own personal experience to learn lessons they haven't yet. Now instead of judging others or trying to tell them "the way it is", I try to plant seeds of knowledge that may help them through the theme of their problem(s).

    General CommentAnother esoteric 311 song

    Something Out of Nothing is a Qabbalistic saying.

    And this song makes a lot more sense when you think of it as "Magick" something out of nothing.

    I remember seeing a quote made by P-nut on their website message board many years before this song was written in which he said something along the lines of "before you die learn to write music... When you write music youre creating something out of nothing, which is the definition of magick"

    "every time you're through the door don't care what they say" --- to me this quote is either referring to a loved one, or referring to the fans showing up at their shows.... Either or....

    And they are saying that "the paranormal became normal" meaning they manifested their success/fans (or loved one) through spiritual work.....They created their own reality.

    Of course the rest of the song is very much a tribute to Oneness... And being one with the universe
