You ever wonder if songs have a hidden meaning to them? I have been listening to 311 for a long time...and I find that their lyrics have a message that are conspiratorial in nature. I really don't think their fans even notice it. 311 is a rock/rap/reggea group, their main message is about love, unity, and positiveness. But hidden in their lyrics are a lot of conspriacy type messages, aliens, ufos, free energy, hidden science. So since tomorrow is 3/11 day, which is a big day for 311 fans, and there is a 3 day event in vegas for it (wish I could of gone
)...I decided to share with you some lyrics and pictures and you can decide what you think.

I'm going to get all conspiratorial and suggest some crazy things, but hey...it's skunk works...not even sure what I think of it myself. These are thoughts that go through my mind while listening to them:

Are they trying to send a hidden message with their lyrics?

Do they just really like conspiracy topics and put them in their lyrics?

Are they getting messages (subconsciously or consciously) from somewhere else...aliens?

Are they possibly aliens themselves?


I'll share some lyrics and some pictures that deal with topics we see everyday here on ATS. So let's begin.

First...here is 311's official logo:



And here is one of 311's logo's. Doesn't have their name in it...but all 311 fans will know it is for 311...interesting?



Now for some lyrics

From the song "Glaxay"


Between Mars and Jupiter
There's a gap
For another planet
Now way back yeah
Maybe a mad man
Just blew the [snip]
Out of it
Now we're tryin'
To get back
In alignment
Explains why we
Go through cycles
Always tryin' to find it
Closin' into the age
Of aquarius
Crazy weather
Floods Tornadoes
Low jet streams
Not gettin better
Enterin' a twilight zone
Activities grown
Every single day
More people spottin' UFO's
...
It's messed up when you're feeling
Everything is wrong
takeover the Pentagon
...
It's [snip] up in this paradigm
Cuz i'm burnin' fossil fuels
I dont even need too
free energy has been harnessed
we don't use it why
cuz the techniques been suppressed
...
now something is watchin' me
since i have found the keys
to free this energy
my high speed light body
cuz the galaxy is crazy
it doesn't amaze me
that we're livin' out of phase
and quickly decaying
6 protons, 6 neutrons, 6 electrons
is encoded in this plane
we live on


In this one song we have three main topics that are discussed on ATS almost daily. It's not something you find in most lyrics...311 is one of the few that I see lyrics like this.



From the song "Prisoner"


Whoa oh prisoner
My pretty oh oh prisoner

A black ocean is the sky above
Tiny lights bob what star you from

Trapped in material plane
She wants to fly and they think she's insane
But she knows what she know
Give that girl wings and that's all she wrote
...
Mutant races in an ancient universe
...
I believe that you know more
To survive the dimension is four
...
Look at the way she's searching
Trapped in a world that's hurting


This is one of those songs that I feel like they are directly trying to give a message. It may sound nutty...but I always feel like they are saying that they are prisoners here on Earth. Other hints to this are littered through their other songs.



From the song "Transistor"


You're a transistor
Lightning resistor
Conducting to the mother Star
That's what you are
...
Brothers from another planet and
Here once again
...
Quantum saints of the universe
In a holographic
Cosmic Remix
...
From the mysterious blue planet
We can breathe anywhere
Underwater, out in space, and in L.A.


Well...if they aren't aliens...I think they like to think they are
Here is a pic of them with "alien eyes"




From the song "Random"

Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy
Go back rocket man into the sky you'll see
Hear it all the time, come back rewind
Aliens are watching up in the sky
Sound boy proceed to blast into the galaxy





More lyrics for you to enjoy


From the song "Light Years"

You're a thousand light years running through my brain
Reminding me that no one's sane




From the song "Applied Science"

Some of this were standing on the shoulder of giants
Some tryants some benevolent
...
Electricity running through is all that feels good
Sometimes the only thing that really ever could
Feed that hunger I crave it I love it I gave it
I shove it in a battery and save it for later




From the song "Beyond the Gray Sky"

It is a gift I know
A moment of bliss that we hold
A firecracker flash of light then on
To the next plane soul remain
Come along if you dare
It's gonna be that you're scared
...
One day youíll see the clear blue
Beyond the Gray Sky




From the song "Electricity"

The same force that flows through every circuit
The juice that's spent everytime you work it
Every life form is based on this simplicity
The soul that you have is electricity


From the song "Evolution"

On the periodic table they got it all wrong
Let me lay it down for you in this song
People want PT
They want AU
Lemme tell you what you really ought to do
Figure out ways to master silicon
Fiber optic connectors
Whatevers beyond


Full Lyrics to all 311 songs


So what are peoples thoughts? Possible hidden message? Possible alien communication? Or possible that they are aliens themselves?

I use to be a big 311 fan. I've been to maybe 5 or 6 shows. Went to 311 day in New Orleans maybe 2002 or 2003. I just remember it was there longest show ever at that point. Some 4 1/2 hours, I think.

Anyways, I just think they were a bit out there. Yeah, they wanted to make people think, they wanted to wake people up, but it's not like they had any real answers. They were just young adults experiencing the world and having curious thoughts is all. Just like many here on ATS.

What they offer is beliefs, suggestions, and a whole lot of energy.

What was their biggest statement overall from their music, IMO? Live life on your own terms, and question everything. That's what their lyrics are mainly about..more questions than any real answers.

Interesting Muse do something similar although they admitted they are anti NWO and pro aliens.

Nice thread S&F


Be funny if we find out one day that some of the worlds bands are in fact aliens trying to spread their message through something the masses may understand


EDIT: re reading it all again it could be possible they are aliens especially with the blatant "They are among us..." but that could be for show.. Good songs though i like their style.

That's not a bad message in itself though

It would be funny if we eventually found out the some of these bands were aliens. Sometimes I listen to 311 and just hear the music...other times I swear they are trying to send a message.

The funny thing about their concert posters and other logos/posters is that although there are aliens, ufos, and all kinds of other stuff on them...no one EVER calls them crackpots for having that all over their stuff. If it is a message they are trying to send...I think it is pretty effective be is accepted without anyone thinking anything is odd about it.


Thanks for the input guys.

Im pretty sure 311 is a racist group the 11th letter in the alphabet is K so 3 k's?

just a thought i mean if they are so in depth that they send a message then that one shouldnt be ignored

Well 311 sucks and always will, that is why they had to pay Kroq (radio station in LA) to play their music while sublime's stuff was on by request. GWAR talks abut aliens and stuff do you think they are on to something?

Yeah, I remember that old rumor. It's bunk. 311 is a police code for indecent exposure or loud music.

Well, interesting thread. I have been a fan since 1997. I think that they are just writing about things they believe in...no messages. Also, it could be from all the pot they smoke.

Now, off subject. Their music has gone down hill since Sound System...but, I am going to 3/11 day tomorrow in Vegas...so I am excited about that...not the drive to get there though!

311 is the police call sign for indecent exposure in Omaha where they are from...if it was 3-11, then maybe...but still.

Also, there is a song on Transistor that is quoted above, call Electricity. The first line is, "This song started as a rant against haters, but that'd be giving into the instigators..." and ends with, "a call out to unity, in every province and city...what do you think we've been saying since we first started playing?"

Now, that song was originally a response to people who bring up this KKK thing. The song's working title was actually called F**k the KKK...but they changed it.

So, please research the band before you make a statement like this. Unless you are being sarcastic and are a true fan...then point awarded for that.

311 is actually one of the few bands which came out during/after the grunge period that were original and refreshing. I have three of their albums.
A lot of their lyrics are very insightful.


Don't even get me started with what passes for music now.

Peace

It very well could be all the pot they smoke. If they aren't talking about aliens or ufos...they are talking about pot.

I agree about their music going downhill...I went to a concert last year and they played most of their new album (uplifter)...and I wasn't digging it. There were times where almost everyone was in their seats. They are getting old and too mellow. I'm getting old too...but haven't mellowed yet

is this website tapped into my brain? wtf? Am I some part of an experiment? I joined this site a few months ago and sometimes it says what I am thinking...Have I been programmed since back inthe day? MK Ultra? I dunno. Its all just to weird. i am 34 haven't heard 311 in years, but used to LOVE them. Gave me power in some weird way back then. I took out my own stitches to the tunes of 311. Only third post but this site has got me off my rocker (sp?)

311 is from Omaha, NE about 40 miles from where I grew up. "Peanut" the bass player is the brother of a friend of mine. I am pretty positive they are not aliens. I dont really know the whole thought process behind their lyrics (I personally have never been into them enough to care) but I am pretty sure about the alien thing.
