Yeah, uh-hu, unh
awww shit
what, unh
you know the freaks can't handle it
we keep on searching from the seaside
to the mountainside, come on
hardly outstyled and hardly outblazened
nectar natural, completely amazing
others more concerned with just fronting on hardness
I flow sweet with millennium niceness
I don't know if they're just scared or what
but a little sincerity would knock them on their butt
I keep my dogs at my side and I keep my shit tight
let me tell you how I feel, all right

Y'all's radio rock ain't that tuff
can't move to that ain't deep enough
one more time groove on the line
chill's up my spine, ready, rewind

The only thing that never gets old is honesty
you'll probably be caught up fronting
the only thing you always try to be is hard
because you're scared that someone might pull your card
the only thing that never gets played out
is melody, I'm hearing it calling me
it's plain to see because it's all laid out

Full ride, I'm a master of technology
livin' my life nice in pursuit of groove-ology
I'm getting vibes like you checking me out
without a doubt I pull clout and crush crews in a rout
I'm a Doberman in any given reaction
well-mannered and reserved, yet ready for action
I let you have it all, I got nothin to hide
I tell ya how we comin', we comin' full ride
full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct
while others just run and hide
full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct

I get fucked up rockin the jams, I bump disco
playin' records all day I then let go
I'm the king of my town
but when my girl is around
parlay like the Count of of Monte Cristo
so simple the jams are in front of me
get drunk in New York, make fun of me
when we play it's a serous thing
to all the people who that gather
here's what we bring

The only thing that never gets old is honesty
you'll probably be caught up fronting
the only thing you always try to be is hard
because you're scared that someone might pull your card
the only thing that never gets played out
is melody, I'm hearing it calling me
it's plain to see because it's all laid out

Yeah, yeah, what
full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct
while others just run and hide
full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct

yes, yes, full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct
while others just run and hide
full ride, full ride, we work in on the inside
as you'd expect we come correct, unh

    General CommentAnother good song by 311. I think this song has more than one meaning. One meaning is for those who have everything done for them and dont do shit and when they have to do something on their own they have no idea what to do. And the other meaning is that 311 have done everything on their own. They create their own tight and original music and with that they have brought a whole bunch of fans to love their music and now they have a "full ride" of doing what they love to do everyday and fuckin rock out.

    General CommentThis song is about being honest with yourself and not following the "POPular" crowd just because thats what everyone else is doing. Come as you are and be yourself. But, I wish 311 would have kept being themselves and not have sold out like they did with their Evolver album and that stupid ass cure cover.

    ... but mr. ATDI GLASSFAG doesnt know what hes talking about.. "I wish 311 would have kept being themselves and not have sold out" Whats that about? 311 is always keeping it real so u didnt presonaly like the cure cover but so what? that doesnt make 311 any less original.. they are still themselves all the way! Can't NOBODY Do It Like 311!

    General CommentDefinitely among 311's lamest tracks...From Chaos's second worst, behind only Hostile Apostle. The lyrics are dorky, the music itself is uninspired. Thumbs down to this song but other than this 311 rocks

    General Commentthis is raw 311. full ride rallys around the craziness of todays society. particularly aiming at the youth. kids grow up looking to belong and lots of the time lose their true selves trying to impress the grins of others. the only grin that matters is the one inside yourself and they have always emphasized that in their music.
