"Engine No. 9" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham....
This ain´t no motherfuckin´ stick up just pick the stick up
And watch it roll real close rolling out my hand ´til
It cracks to that fucking dome living off the curb
That peels you from the curb I lick the rest off
Do you dig many in ´93 been making them fools ´bout
Round bumping around me you´ll want to run from
Underground at the best walk the live from
The verb on the beats I won´t see you fuckin´ head

Peers I flow
And mother she
Won´t drain herself
And won´t be caught in
All live in a big world
Began just because

My life is un-rise - wipe
The lyrical did - did
Because my life is un-rise - wipe
The lyrical did - did

My life is un-rise - wipe
The lyrical did - did
Because my my life is un-rise - wipe
The lyrical did - did

Get straight quickly
Been making them fools ´bout
Round bumping around me you´ll want to run from
Underground at the best walk the live from
The verb on the beats I won´t see you fuckin´ head

Peers I flow
And mother she
Won´t drain herself
And won´t be caught in
She did what
She did what
She did what

Just because my life is un-rise - wipe
Lyrical - did
Because my life is un-rise - wipe
The lyrical did - did

Because my life is un-rise - wipe
Lyrical - did
Because psycho - wipe
Lyrical - did

Wipe - did - wipe - did
First one - wipe
Lyrical - did
Last one - wipe
Lyrical - did

Begin in me because
My psycho - wipe
What lyrical - did
Stop the fuckin´ - wipe
The lyrical - did

Big into the wipe - did - wipe - did
Wipe - did - wipe - did

    General Commenthere are the correct lyrics:

    YEAHHHHH!

    This ain't no motherfuckin(g) stick up
    Just stick'em and watch it roll real close
    Rolling out my gat till it cracks to that fucking dome
    Living off that curb I think you fuck up
    I lick rest so why do you dig
    Man '93
    Been making the fools go bout, bumping around me,
    You're right, you've seen 'em go underground
    but you know this was the life that they've earned
    On the beats won't see you fuckin whore

    Peer side whore
    and mother she
    Won't drain herself and won't be caught to live
    I live in a big world inside just because
    It's my time to WIPE (Because the Lyrical did) Hate
    (My time to) Wipe (Because the lyrical did) Hate
    Because that's bullshit bring it in because
    It's my time to WIPE (Because the Lyrical did) Hate
    (my time to) Wipe (Because the lyrical did) Hate

    Get straight-
    Quickly Making fools go about bumping round me
    You want to see from underground
    'cause no one else wants to watch when they burn
    Now cum and come see you fuckin whore

    Peer side whore and mother she
    Won't drain herself and won't be caught nondescript
    Just did What?
    Just did what?
    Just did what?
    Just
    Because It's my time to WIPE (Because the Lyrical did) Hate
    (my time to) Wipe (Because the lyrical did) Hate
    Well that's bullshit. Bring it in because
    It's my time to WIPE (Lyrical) Hate

    General CommentI like your interpretation TheHappiestColour, and Disposition, his lyrics have made more sense in successive albums but are still cryptic as hell! I've read in some Deftones interviews that they really don't consider this a true representation of themselves because they have progressed and changed so much.

    I for one will always like Adrenaline though! The whole album reminds me of growing up in some cracked neighborhood and it kind of reminds me of my youth. I think the lyrics kind of spill out on the album because he is just kind of spewing his past out without thinking.

    Deftones is a band that I notice is very much straight from the heart. They don't calculate much in their songs and just belt it! I know Chino in an interview said when they collaborated with Maynard (MJK from Tool), they were all surprised at how MJK took a lot of time to create his pieces from a certain formula, while the Deftones just winged theirs! I love both bands (they are my favorite), but I definitely like Chino's methods. It seems so raw that way.

    Although Tool is just so awesome in the music they create. True Geniuses.

    General CommentA scream to humanity. Wake up! Start to see things how they are THIS IS AIN'T NO MOTHERFUCKIN STICK UP Run away from the underground and come to the surface and look around YOU'LL WANT TO RUN STRAIGHT FROM UNDERGROUND Don't get caught to lies or illusions. Don't think that the "motherfuckin' stick up" wont cracks the glass. Because it sure will IT CRACKS TO THAT FUCKING DOME Maybe the lyrical and the verb are the solution AT THE BEST WALK THE LIVE FROM THE VERB Music could be a way to escape to problems and it sure help to forget all those shits ON THE BEATS I WON'T SEE YOUR FUCKIN' HEAD Above all freedom to say whatever we want, that's why we are here to give our contribute to society LYRICAL DID!!!WIPE!!! Open your eyes and see what's right or wrong GET STRAIGHT QUICKLEY If you got to say fuck say it BIG INTO THE WIPE!!! Better then get quiet until the stick up gets into your head BEEN MAKING FOOLS 'BOUT ROUND, BUMPING ROUND ME

    General CommentI loved the way Chino used to rock to this song and dance on stage....not saying that he doesn't anymore, but I miss the adrenaline days and ATF...when he used to dive at all his shows, but you still rock Chino....always

    General CommentSounds to me like he's kicking someone's ass. Maybe I'm just high or something but think of it as being on "cloud 9" only the opposite. As being on cloud 9 your at the height of your happyness maybe his at the height of his anger and he put's the label "engine" on it. He's pissed and when your completely angry nothing makes sense. You act on emotion and lash out at everything. Like in a fight, you become disoreinted, even primal. That's such a great word.
    TOP LIP....BOTTOM LIP....CONSUME!!!!!!!!!!.

    General Comment...... I don't know what to say about these lyrics.... I must say they sound a little off... wipe? I dunno... but I do know that the Deftones are my favorite band of all, they have a really unique sound and they kick ass. This song is awesome, as a matter of fact I can't believe no one had anything to say about it... I have the video when they do it with Jon Davis, when Chino still had dreads.... too bad Jon has always thought he was god... and decided to "milk" his attention.. oh well. The Deftones rock my world.. rock on, farewell! *FSQ*
