Lyrics:

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
Cause I just won't let you

Sometimes I feel like
The world is on top of me
Breakin' me down with
An endless monotony

Sometimes I feel like
There's nothing that's stopping me
All things are possible
I am unstoppable

Some may convince you
No one can break through
I'm here to tell you
You're worth
More than they tell you

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
Cause I just won't let you

Sometimes I feel like
My life's a catastrophe
Can't understand why
It seems like it has to be

Sometimes I feel like
It's all opened up for me
Nothing's impossible
I am inconquerable

No one can make you
Do what they want to
You know you're stronger
Than the lies
That they tell you

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(I'd give anything to know)
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(I would have never made it so far)
Ay-o
Cause I just won't let you

Believe in yourself

Some may convince you
No one can break through
You know you're stronger
Than the lies
That they tell you

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(I'd give anything to know)
Ay-o
I just refuse
(How you live with yourself)
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(I would have never made it so far)
Ay-o
Cause I just won't let you
(All by myself)

Believe in yourself


Quotes regarding the song and its making:

That’s another Buckethead song. I was keying off the guitar riff – we’ve been playing that style for years, so when he came in with the riff I knew what to do. Bucket and I have been playing for twenty years now. Before I was even in Primus, Joe Gore, the editor of Guitar Player, turned me on to him. We’ve been playing together since Bill Laswell and Praxis. So to get into that song was so simple – right away I hear his style and know what to play and what to feel.
