Flobots

What do your guys think of the "flobots"
unless something just outright presents its self to me, im not gonna get it.
Im not good at understanding messages and shit.
Im sure most have heard the song lately
If not here are the lyrics to their hit single


I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars
No handlebars

I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars
No handlebars

Look at me, look at me
hands in the air like it's good to be
ALIVE
and I'm a famous rapper
even when the paths're all crookedy
I can show you how to do-si-do
I can show you how to scratch a record
I can take apart the remote control
And I can almost put it back together
I can tie a knot in a cherry stem
I can tell you about Leif Ericson
I know all the words to "De Colores"
And "I'm Proud to be an American"
Me and my friend saw a platypus
Me and my friend made a comic book
And guess how long it took
I can do anything that I want cuz, look:

I can keep rhythm with no metronome
No metronome
No metronome

I can see your face on the telephone
On the telephone
On the telephone

Look at me
Look at me
Just called to say that it's good to be
ALIVE
In such a small world
All curled up with a book to read
I can make money open up a thrift store
I can make a living off a magazine
I can design an engine sixty four
Miles to a gallon of gasoline
I can make new antibiotics
I can make computers survive aquatic conditions
I know how to run a business
And I can make you wanna buy a product
Movers shakers and producers
Me and my friends understand the future
I see the strings that control the systems
I can do anything with no assistance
I can lead a nation with a microphone
With a microphone
With a microphone
I can split the atoms of a molecule
Of a molecule
Of a molecule

Look at me
Look at me
Driving and I won't stop
And it feels so good to be
Alive and on top
My reach is global
My tower secure
My cause is noble
My power is pure
I can hand out a million vaccinations
Or let'em all die in exasperation
Have'em all grilled leavin lacerations
Have'em all killed by assassination
I can make anybody go to prison
Just because I don't like'em and
I can do anything with no permission
I have it all under my command
I can guide a missile by satellite
By satellite
By satellite
and I can hit a target through a telescope
Through a telescope
Through a telescope
and I can end the planet in a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust
In a holocaust

I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handle bars
No handlebars

I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars
No handlebars


I have read a little on their website, it mentions peace a few times, and i read an interview, and they said they support obama
To me, you can support peace, and be a republican, just gotta be ready to dish out an ass whooping when needed

Im not trying to get into a political debate by any means, just trying to understand these guys a little better

Quote from the interview

Question WE: And speaking on the state of the world, the state of politics in this election year, what are your feelings on state democracy in America? What are your feelings on the coming election?

Answer : J5: Excited. There is a guy named Jim Wallace that says, ďReal social change happens when there are real social movements pushing on open doors.Ē I think as individuals, we have pretty much all been supportive of Obama, and the thought is that he really represents that open door. I donít want to speak for everyone else, but I think that he could be that open door, though there has to be a social movement, and I think that a lot of people get that this election isnít about getting one guy into the White House. It is about a whole lot of people waking up and taking action, and taking responsibility for the things that happen in our neighborhood, and the things that happen around the world. Accepting blame, maybe, and then taking some responsibility.



Edited to correct lyrics

I still like the song but I don't think the lyrics you posted are right?

I just used one of my free downloads to get "Handlebars". I like it. It goes well with the Slayer I got along with it.

WTF is a flobot?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

If you listen to the rest of their album you'll have some more insight into their message. (I wouldnt buy it, but then again I dont buy anything but tickets to shows)
