"All You Need" as written by and Bradley James Nowell....
Headed out for Austin, now we're half way down the road
Hollering budda-budda-budda-budda-by
Steady staring out the window
It fells good, it fells nice, it feels like you need it
And back out on the road is where we like to be seated
We got half-pint style, we got a b-boy style
We got half-pint style, we got a b-boy style
We got to put that shit together in a creative style
We put that shit together in a creative style

Outside on the pavement I won't feel afraid
There's a little piece of paper saying how we walked that May
Back out on the highway, and this hurts to say
No one's got fingers, I got no one to blame

I can't make you overstand, rising up in a hip-hop stance
Society's got to me
That's all you need

Headed out to Houston, now we're halfway out the door
Hollering budda-budda-budda-budda-by
Staring out the window
It fells good, it feels nice, it feels like you need it
I know how females like to be treated
A license for me and the stars up above
And on the interstate I fell love, love, love
And If I never realize then that's how it has to be
And all DJs out there got to give me money

Back out on the freeway, I won't fell sane
Little yellow headlights look like snails smashed in the rain
Back out on the highway, and this hurts to say
Blown out speakers, I got no one to blame

I can't make you overstand, rising up in a hip-hop stance
Society's got to me
That's all you need, yeah, yeah

My way is your way, but I won't see
'Cause no one can tell you, you've got to be afraid
We got to go back on the highway, live behind the wheel
I want it real, I want it real
I want it real, real

    General CommentThese are the lyrics according to sublimespot.com

    Headin' out for Austin now we're half way down the road
    Buddy bye, buddy bye, buddy buy, buddy buy
    Steady starin' out the window
    Feels good it feels nice it feels like you need it
    Back out on the road's where we like to be seated

    We got Half-Pint style we got the U Roy style
    A Half-Pint style we got the U Roy style
    We gonna put that shit together wanna create a style
    Put that shit together wanna create a style

    Passed out on the pavement, I won't feel afraid
    And the little piece of paper sayin' how we wont get paid
    Back out on the highway Phoenix looks the same
    You dont got me cuz I got no one to blame

    I can't make you overstand
    I'm rising up in a hip-hop dance
    Smile if you got the beat
    Thats all you need

    Headin' out to Houston now we're half way out the door
    Buddy bye, buddy bye, buddy buy, buddy buy
    Starin' out the window
    It feels good, it feels nice, it feels like you need it
    I know how females like to be treated

    The lights upon me and the stars up above
    Out on the interstate its all about love love love
    If I never realize thats how it has to be
    And all the DJ daughters ought to give me money

    Back out on the freeway i won't feel the same
    Little yellow headlights look like snails smashed in the rain

    Back out on the highway Phoenix looks the same
    Don't ask me cuz I've got no one to blame

    I can make you overstand
    I'm rising up in a hip-hop dance
    Smile if you got the beat
    That's all you need

    My way is lonely
    But I won't see
    Because no one can tell you
    You've got to be afraid
    We've got to go out back on the highway
    Livin' it all real
    Oh for real
    So high uh
    Get it together
    You know
    You got it
    Real
    You want it real
    You want it real
    Real

    General Commentit's funny, i randomly decided to buy a sublime song from puretracks. i didn't know that it would be this awesome!! but i've searched all these lyrics sites and none of them are consistent.. well, it's understandable, cuz bradley sings so damn fast in the song and the guitar kind of muffles his voice. but whatever.. it still rocks!:)

    General Commenttowards the end bradley sings "no one can tell you, you've got to be afraid." this is from a chili peppers song on uplift mofo party plan, fight like a brave.

    General CommentI absolutely love the energy of this song. But what does it all mean? Something involving a Texas road trip and lots of drugs?

    General CommentDuring a road trip the band partied hard and overslept after a gig in Phoenix, Arizona. The band later had a gig in Austin, Texas in just a few short hours and were hundreds of miles away. The song is Bradley's high recollection of the band driving like a bat outta hell trying to get to the gig in Texas and get paid. The speed of the song shows the rush and chaos the band was feeling.
