"Vibrate" as written by and Andre Benjamin....
Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Sometimes when it's late at night
And you have no one to talk to
Here's what you do, you go through that
Raggedy cell phone 'bout two or three times
Tracy ain't home, Tina ain't home
The Love Below starts talkin' to ya

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

The circumcision has already begun
Desensitizing the very thing or thang that
Brought you into this motherfucker in the first place
And when I say "motherfucker" I do mean "motherfucker"
Because Mother Earth is dying
And we continue to fuck her death
Play with your own score sheet
Become the master of your own
And Yes, God is watching you
But no need to be embarrassed
For the future is in your hands
No the future is in your hand
Play with your own score sheet

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

Every boy and girl, woman to man
When you feel you've done about the best you can
Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band
Vibrate, vibrate higher

    General CommentIn short, our planet is overpopulated. Therefore, masturbate rather than impregnate.

    General CommentSo I totally Take my previous comment back this IS what he song is truly about

    The Theory: If we vibrate to a higher level of energy and conciousness, we can eradicate the pain and horrible circumstances in the world. Join the band. Vibrate higher. Become aware. Realize you are not the important one nor are you entitled to live complacently while millions die. Vibrate higher.

    every boy and girl, woman to man,
    when you feel you done about the best you can,
    muthaf*uck the wagon, come join the band,
    vibrate, vibrate higher

    sometimes when you're all alone,
    and you got no one to talk to,
    here's what you do,

    the circumsision has already begun,
    desensitizing the very thing or thang that brought you into this muthaf*cka in the first place,
    and when I say muthaf*cka i do mean muthaf*ucka, because mother earth is dying and we continue to f*ck her to do, play with your own solution, and yes God is watching, but no need to be embarrassed, the future is in your hand, play with your own solution

    french spoken word (translation):
    "Who was the Sphinx? A strange character, half-man half-beast. In Greek
    mythology, he lived on a rock just outside Thebes and no traveller could
    escape him. To each passer-by he would ask the same question: Â'What creature
    is in the morning on four legs, at noon on two and in the evening on three?Â'
    The answer was simply: man. What confused passers-by was not only the strange
    way the enigma was formulated, but also the fact that man is a profound
    mystery to himself.

    And this has not changed: we understand more and more things that happen in
    nature and in our bodies, but the complex world of our thoughts and emotions
    often remains a big question. Perhaps then the most important and occult
    (that is hidden, secret) aspect of the question of the Sphinx is simply: what
    is the essence of Man?

    Like the Sphinx, Man is double: at the same time material and spiritual,
    scientific and religious, rational and imaginative, barbaric and civilised,
    destructive and creative. These opposites are not contraries; instead, they
    complement each other. They are the two sides of the coin on which is
    impressed the archetype of Man.

    Creation, which tries to express abstract ideas or impulses in a physical
    work, can help us unify these opposites in us. And it is not the privilege of
    an artistic or intellectual elite; it is open to all."

    General Commenti personally believe that this song is about self manifestation and increasing your vibration in order to be in complete control of the future through the universe and yourself instead of all of the misconceptions society has fed us about success and happiness.

    General Commentwell mastubation could be seen as the simplest form of tuning into yourself.. frequencies and vibrations?

    i think there is a link to mastubation but it shouldn't override the stronger messages (vibrations) resonating throughout this song.

    i agree with both above. and i also think it involves connecting with your concience and doing the right thing.

    talking to yourself, playing with yourself, listening to your heart.

    theres also the idea of us not getting so caught up in our own lives that we dont forget we must focus our energy further than ourselves in order to save the world . because without the world we have no lives to lead.

    General CommentI tend to think that the "in your hand" lyric hints at a hand as in a card game--that is, what you bring to the table. Note the references to a "score sheet." In other words, take your own inventory, rather than other people's.

    I feel the song is about self responsibility. It is easy to look at others and condemn them for what seem to be their wrongs. Such behavior only adds more toxins to the world.

    I am tempted to find the references to masturbation satirical, but I am not sure either way. Regardless, this song is a great reminder of our holographic nature, that when we care for ourselves--including being a joy to others and sharing our feelings with them, conditions change for the better.

    Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Wagons are too slow for this kind of work.

    That's what I get out of it.

    General CommentI think this song is about loneliness... he is empathizing with a woman and how we sometimes go inward with ourselves but to go out and get involved and do something.... that will cure the loneliness and hopelessness of the world.. I agree with the other comments in that it has to do with consciousness and energy flow, along with personal responsibility. The answer to the emptiness is loving yourself and having a cause and the rest will come in line...

    I think the end is a sarcastic message to just play with yourselves instead of bringing in more unloved babies!!!

    My InterpretationEvery boy and girl, woman and man (Everyone)
    When you feel you've done about the best you can (When you've tried your hardest, but can't do something quite right)
    Motherfuck the wagon, come join the band (Reference to bandwagon- stop trying to be like everyone else, be yourself)
    Vibrate, vibrate higher ***********

    Sometimes when it's late at night
    And you have no one to talk to
    Here's what you don', you go through that
    Raggedy cell phone 'bout two or three times
    Tracy ain't home, Tina ain't home
    The Love Below start talkin' to ya
    (When you need to talk to someone, listen to your own heart, not what anyone else says because they're not going to always be there for you anyways)

    The circumcision has already begun
    Desensitizing the very thing or thang that Brought you into this motherfucker in the first place
    And when I say "motherfucker" I do mean "motherfucker"
    (Reference to father? Don't let the person or thing that brought you into the struggle affect you)
    Because Mother Earth is dying
    And we continue to fuck her death
    (All the human race does makes Earth a worse place to live and we don't stop it)
    Play with your own score sheet,
    Become the master of your own,
    (Control your own life, do what's best for you)
    And Yes, God is watching you
    But no need to be embarrassed
    For the future is in your hands,
    No the future is in your hand
    Play with your own score sheet
    (Yes, people (God) may see and judge you, but continue to do what make you happy)

    Song MeaningI was surprised when I first heard this song. I had just read the kybalion (a new agey/esoteric text on Hermetic philosophy) which basically says that the key to enjoyment and success in life is to change your mental vibration to one that is higher. Seems like Andre is using sex/masturbation as a metaphor but he's spitting truth. Change your vibration and see the world change! Thank you outkast for spreading light, I knew there was a reason why I loved them so much
