lyrics

mota!
every day, well it's the same
that bong that's on the table starts to call
my name
i take a hit and zone out again
i'll be paranoid and hungry by a quarter to ten
watching reruns on my tv
i'm laughing off my ass at three's company
i don't know if i'm understood
but hearing jimmy buffett never sounded so good
your memory's gone and so is your life (your life)
mota boy
but losing out just never felt so right
your enemy's you and so is your life (your life)
mota boy
but losing out may feel okay all night
mota!
i'm driving down to the barrio
going 15 miles an hour 'cause i'm already stoned
give the guy a twenty and wait in the car
he tosses me a baggie then he runs real far
i take a hit but it smells like a clove
oh fuck i got a baggie of oregano
this ritual is distroying me
but i guess it could be worse
it could be methedrine
your memory's gone and so is your life (your life)
mota boy
but losing out just never felt so right
your enemy's you and your couch is your life (your life)
but losing out might take
losing out might take you all night
mota!
losing out might feel okay all night
yeah losing out might feel okay all life

About the artist behind Mota Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
