well you should never get your style from watching mtv
all youll get is fashion no origionality
what clothes are they wearing
or what drugs are they on
if i drove a mercedes
would i be someone lord
should i neil and play stay
or should i be a member of the manson family
it all seems so trivial but they call it marketing
exploiting the talent lord what a sin thing
said i feel your pain its a shame
people i feel your pain its a shame
so man is to blame
but im gonna break it down
anyway that i can
im gonna scream im gonna yell
cause i dont wanna use my hands
cause you put that wall up around you
now you cant see out
you cant hear my words
no matter how loud i shout
its like screamin at the wall but the bricks dont hear a sound
i cant seem to move like cement on the ground
keep your ass on the road and and they sell you at the mall
its like screamin at the wall but when bricks dont hear at all
and we dont need no video to make up for our song
with the pen to the paper in a unique style on
keep the buzz together with the drum and the bass
we mix that shit all up and then we rob up the place
cause the club will get boring with the same old beat
and if you need some music when you roll down the street
said i feel your pain its a shame
people i feel your pain its a shame
so man is to blame
well people i feel your pain its a shame
people i feel your pain
so man is to blame
feel your pain its a shame
people i feel your pain its a shame
so man is to blame
hey
skit skankin fools who are
you think they are cool
try to denie me for simplicity
but i dont want to buise you
and i dont wanna lose you
but dont try to denie me for

    General Commenti'm suprised no one has mention the direct tribute to fugazi/minor threat. the main riff is taken from "waiting room" by fugazi, and the lines:

    "cause you put that wall up around you
    now you cant see out
    you cant hear my words
    no matter how loud i shout
    its like screamin at a wall"

    are taken from a minor threat song called "screaming at a wall"

    General Commentits actually "stiff-necked fools" not skit skankin fools. these lines are pulled from the bob marley song "stiff necked fools"

    General Commenthe's actually staying stiff necked fools not skit skankin fools. this line and the next few are pulled from the bob marley song "stiff necked fools". the band sublime was highly influenced by bob marley throughout their career. Bradley's cover of Bob's All In One Medley is amazing. check it out

    General CommentThis was actually a Sublime song that never got to be released that was called "I Don't Wanna Be No MTV Motherfucker". LBDA then took the song as their own. Great one, too.

    General CommentYeah i prefer the sublime version, but lbdas did a good job with it. I think opie just lacks the intesity that brad sung with, still wicked music though
