"Jackpot" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Chad Sexton....
Jackpot, uh split shot
I'm in line doing fine
This snapper I've got the bounty
Blessed with the amount, we
Never guess, the best is yet to come
Came to rock the fucking block
If you don't come new
Then you might get dropped
I think it's strange
The thing's the same, carry on
Season's deranged
Like the one we call will be gone

With the touch of my wand
You are my God, you're my guardian
I hit the jackpot, I'm the lucky one
My fortune endless, never coming undone, uh
Moving, I'm a nomad
Another girl's voice is the noises rad
My treasure is soul, aren't you glad
I get psychedelic with a pen and a pad

Rooming up in no it's about that critical
Find it difficult to be so analytical
I'm filled with hope
The rope it won't hang you
Sit your ass down and come in rangoon
Right about now it's about that time
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for

Woo
Everybody jump

[Chorus:]
What are the chances
The odds must be enhanced
It's a wild card that you threw
Of all the places to end up
It amazes me
After all we've been through

[Bridge]
Jackpot
All the people say whoa
Jackpot
Let me hear you say whoa
Jackpot
Uh, what, whoa
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot
Whoa

We hit the jackpot
The lotto, lucky dot
So the path that we tread
We pave the bars of gold
Now we got it
How we bought it
Sweating from stage to stage
A lot of it
And if we won the chance to dance
And do it all again
We wouldn't change a thing
There is no other end
The pinnacle we reached
We knew it was possible
How we got here
Overcoming obstacles

Right about now it's about that time
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for
Reside West Coast from the Mid West
Take what you like and fuck all the rest, man
We only enter in one contest
That we made up ourselves
That's to be the 311'est

Woo
Everybody jump

[Chorus x2]
What are the chances
The odds must be enhanced
It's a wild card that you threw
Of all the places to end up
It amazes me
After all we've been through

[Bridge]
Jackpot
All the people say whoa
Jackpot
Let me hear you say whoa
Jackpot
Uh, what, whoa
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot
Whoa

Woo
To the death of dismay
Uh
Disc jock to the truth

    General CommentI tried figuring out what the words are where you put the question marks, but with no luck, haha.
    But I think it's "sit your ass down and come in brand new."

    And I think this about 311 as a band-- like how lucky they've been, traveling the country while going on tour.. like all the obstacles they've faced, it's amazing how they've come this far.

    As much as I hate when people say this, but this song sounds like old-school 311. With SA rapping, especially. Love it.

    They better play this song live, it would be awesome.

    Most of that part was right, but here's some corrections according to the booklet.

    General CommentThis is definitely the most old school 311 type song on this album. But it definitely does kick ass.

    Memory
    Ok so this album is not going to amaze anybody lyrically . . . but I saw them a few days ago on 6/29/09 in Mansfield, Ma for about the 25th time; they had to make-up a show from 6/24/09 because the Comcast Center lost power that night. They played this with about seven other Uplifter songs. In addition, in all honesty I was not really feeling the album so much. Until I saw the band do what they do best . . . rock a live show like they are trying to be signed to their first label.

    I always buy Pit tickets for 311, because if you have to stay confined to seats when their live show is so dope, you are really missing an experience.

    Of course, the 311 audience always draws some whack-dizzle frat boy chumps . . . but there are still some of us left that keep the dance floor properly bumpin' as usual. And with songs like Jackpot, that are made to be played in front of 30,000 fans, 311 will stay timeless.

    General CommentThis song has some serious occult references in it... "touch of my wand" and "my guardian", feels very Crowleyian. They're basically showing their gratitude for the luck they've had and singing about the work that went into making it to where they are now and fullfilling what they think is their higher purpose in life

    The lyrics in this song are pretty mysterious.
