"All Mixed Up" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Doug Martinez....
You’ve got to trust your instinct
And let go of regret
You’ve got to bet on yourself now star
‘Cause that’s your best bet
Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
We come with the funky style
That gets us known for the show
And we’ll mix the hip hop reggae if we say it is so
And fuck the naysayers 'cause they don’t mean a thing
‘Cause this is what style we bring

Now it’s morning but last night’s on my mind
There’s something I need to get off my chest
And no matter what may come to shine
The dream will always be mine

All mixed up you don’t know what to do
Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But the first could be the last so just get off your ass
All mixed up you don’t know what to do
Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
Thought a freak might be the thing
But you know this will pass so just get off your ass

You’ve got to trust your instinct
And let go of regret
You’ve got to bet on yourself now star
‘Cause that’s your best bet
Watch me now with a wicked and wild and I said
Sick sick bit got to have it
Like bustin’ in on a session but you got to call it quits
Sick sick bit just can’t quit
Fact that you don’t even know makes it fully legit

Now it’s morning but last night’s on my mind
There’s something I need to get off my chest
And no matter what will come to shine
The dream will always be mine

You keep me coming
That is a gal that’ll kill ‘dem stunning
Keep me coming
That is a gal that’ll kill ‘dem stunning
Keep me coming
That is a gal that’ll kill ‘dem stunning
Keep me coming
That is a gal that’ll kill ‘dem stunning

You make me nervous throat dry
My brain is empty don’t know why
But I saw you doing something
Which is really truly nothing
But you could bust me out all day

Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do
Many moons since first I saw you
Many moons since first we did the do

And why did I try when I knew it was no and
Why did I try when I saw it was so
But save it for late we should just let it skate
'Cause the waiting feel is fine

    General CommentPEACE EVERYONE...SO YEAH IM FROM CENTRAL JERZ AND THERE THIS CHICK I KNOW. WE MET ACTUALLY ON A DATING SITE AND WE DECIDED TO BE JUST STRICTLY FRIENDS 1ST, GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND SEE WHERE IT LEADS. SO HANGING OUT FOR A MONTH NOW,THEN WE GO TO A CONCERT THE NEXT DAY WE ARE TEXTN SAYS SHE DOESN'T FEEL THE ROMANCE. I DIDN'T EVEN ASK HER OUT SO I THINK SHE WAS NOTICING THAT I WAS GETTING INTO HER TOO FAST NOT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT HER FIRST.

    SO I THINK IM ALL MIXED UP U KNOW THE VERSE: All mixed up you dont know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But the first could be the last so just get off your ass
    All mixed up you dont know what to do
    Next thing you turn around and find the person is you
    Thought a freak might be the thing
    But you know this will pass so just get off your ass

    WE ARE VERY SIMILAR IN PERSONALITY. SO ITS LIKE LOOKING INTO A MIRROR. BUT SHES NOT TRUSTING HER INSTINCTS. SHE HAS A LOT OF REGRET IN HER LIFE. WHEN WE CHILL SOMETIMES SHE MAKES ME NERVOUS AND MY THROAT DRY BUT THAT'S BECAUSE WE ARE NOT SOBER LOL SHE MAKES ME HAVE TROUBLE THINKING AND I DON'T KNOW WHY, JUST KEEP THINKING TO MYSELF HOW PERFECT SHE IS WE DON'T EVEN ARGUE ALWAYS TRY TO UNDERSTANDS EACH OTHERS PERSPECTIVES AND EVENTUALLY COME TO AN AGREEMENT.

    SO NOW ABOUT THIS ONE: And why did I try when I knew it was no and
    Why did I try when I saw it was so
    But save it for late we should just let it skate
    Cause the waiting feel is fine

    WAITING TO GET TO KNOW HER IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT. BECAUSE WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT.

    MAYBE U GUYS MAY NOT AGREE WITH ME ON THESE MEANINGS BUT U KNOW WHAT. I LIVE FOR MUSIC AND I HAVE TROUBLE EXPRESSING MYSELF SO EVERY SONG I HEAR I THINK ON MANY LEVELS. LIKE SYMBOLISM AND A PHILOSOPHICAL P.O.V.

    PEACE AND LOVE IM OUT

    General CommentThis is the perfect song for a "get it done and don't let anyone get in your way" kinda mood.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about success in the music industry. Not just by an industry standpoint, but even more importantly, a personal standpoint. The first verse lays out what the band does, critics be damned and the consequence of this is the chorus "all of a sudden, we (the band) are the ones in the industry spotlight. This could be the only shot, so let's really make this work."
    On the second verse, the band's session is going overtime, but not that the band notices because they are doing what they love to do and would do it whether they were successful or not. "the dream will always be mine".
    and also why the "waiting feel is fine" ... although I'm still not sure of the "moons" part :)

    General Comment311 is NOT code for the KKK...if you'd actually read their lyrics you'd know that...311 is the Omaha, Nebraska police code for indecent exposure. One of the bandmembers was skinny-dipping in a pool and got caught..so the guys thought it would be funny to name their band after the code.
