Sound System
Operation Ivy Lyrics


Sound system gonna bring me back up
One thing that I can depend on

Try to describe to the limit of my ability
It's there for a second, then its given up what it used to be

Contained in my music somehow more than just sound
This inspiration coming and twisting things around
Because you always know that it's gonna have to go
You always know that you'll be back in the cold
Point of departure sublimated in a song
It's always coming to give me that hope
For just a second then its gone but

Static pulse inside of music bringing us escape
It's always temporary changing nothing in its wake
Just a second where we're leaving all this shit behind
Just a second but its leaving just this much in mind
To resist despair that second makes you see
To resist despair because you can't change everything
To resist despair in this world is what it is to be free

Wake up turn my box on
Bust the shade let the sun in
Times getting tougher bout time to start running
Box in my hand music by my side
Skanking to the rhythm of the music by my side

Sound system gonna bring me back up
Yeah one thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up
Yeah one thing that I can depend on

Try to describe it to the limit of my ability
It's there for a second then it's giving up what it used to be
Contained in my music somehow more than just sound
This inspiration coming and twisting things around

Because you always know that it's gonna have to go
You always know that you'll be back in the cold
Point of departure sublimated in a song
It's always coming to give me that hope for just a second then it's gone, but

Sound system gonna bring me back up
Yeah one thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up, yeah
Yeah one thing that I can depend on

Static pulse inside of music bringing us escape
It's always temporary changing nothing in its wake
Just a second where we're leaving all this shit behind
Just a second but it's leaving just this in my mind

To resist despair that second makes you see
To resist despair because you can't change everything
To resist despair in this world is
What it is what it is what it is to be free

Sound system gonna bring me back up
Yeah one thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up
Yeah one thing that I can depend on

Sound system
Sound system
Sound system

Wake up, turn my box on, bust the shade, let the sun in
Times are getting tougher 'bout time to start running
Box in my hand, music by my side
Skanking to the rhythm of the music by my side

Sound system gonna bring me back up, right
Yeah one thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up, yeah
Yeah one thing that I can depend on

Sound system gonna bring me back up, right
Yeah one thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up, yeah
Yeah one thing that I can depend on

Sound system

why does everyone think Tim Armstrong is the front man of Op Ivy? It's Jesse Michaels people; credit where credit it due..

Roland Deschain

HA. You don't know shit. I left work to go to the mini golf/arcade nextdoor to see Common Rider play live. Drunk as shit and high on crack. Kudos.

John Crafton
