Stereo Typical

about

Stereo Typical was the very first solid composition that the group had for Gamma Wave, as it became the anchor for the rest of the recording process. Most of the other songs on the album were composed based on captured moments from improvisational jams. This one had been rehearsed for months before the group headed to Minnesota to track at Masters Recording Institute. Mike's use of the synthesizer truly sets the tone of the new musical direction Fluid Minds is moving toward.

Casino and Money sounds at the end were sampled from the Stereo Ninjas song "Showdown" from the album, Weapons of Mass Seduction.

lyrics

STEREO TYPICAL

They want us to be clones
Produce the same thing over and over again
We want to be different, and take down these stereotypical walls
To play what we feel instead of what we’re supposed to
To say what we really feel like you’re being lied to
Who are they to judge us and leave us a prepared noose

People come up and ask me why

(Chorus)
And the only thing I can think of is money
They got us by the balls man, this shit just ain’t funny
Does it make you blue, aww shucks me too
But we can buy all the happiness in the world with money

What have we done to deserve all of this
Where do we go to feel better
Will we be here forever
Stay out of their sights and away from their guns
We must fight for truth but not through politicians
We must stay on this mission 'til the battle is won

People come up and ask me why

(Chorus)
