Lyrics to Jason Mraz’ “Dynamo of Volition”

Like most Mraz songs, this one has been performed in many ways over the years, so these lyrics apply only to the version found on We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. Suggestions for mangled lyrics are welcome.

The Dynamo of Volition
Jason Mraz

I’ve got the dynamo of volition
The pole position
Automatic transmission with low emissions
I’m a brand new addition to the old edition
With the love unconditional

And I’m a drama abolitionist
Damn no opposition to my proposition
Half of a man, half magician
Half a politician holding the mic
Like ammunition
And my vision is as simple as light

Ain’t no reason we should be in a fight
No demolition
Get to vote get to say what you like
Procreation
Propositions already written by themselves
Heck is for the people not believin in gosh

Good Job
Get ’em up way high
Gimme gimme that high five
Good time
Get ’em way down low
Gimme gimme that low dough
Good God
Bring ’em back again
Gimme gimme that high ten
You’re the best definition of good intentions

I do not answer the call if
I do not know who is calling
I guess the whole point of it all
Is that we never know really

I’m tryin’ to keep with the Joneses
While waiting for Guns and the Roses
To finish what we all suppose is
Gonna be the shit for soon(?)

Kid IcarusOh, fist knock bumping and wrist lock
Twisting up a rizla
Kid Icarus on the transister
Nintendo been givin’ me the blister
I bend over take it in the kisser

My best friends are hitting on my sister
Try to tell them that they still wish-a
Cuz she already got herself a mister
And besides that’s gross, don’t want to dis her
Didn’t I say didn’t I say

Good job
Get ’em up way high
Gimme gimme that high five
Good time
Get ’em way down low
Gimme gimme that low dough
Good God
Bring ’em back again
Gimme gimme that high ten
You’re the best definition of good versus evil

I do not keep up with statistics
I do not sleep without a mistress
I do not eat unless it’s fixed with
Some kind of sweet like a licorice
My home is deep inside the mystics
I’m known to keep diggin on existence
I’m holdin’ in the heat like a fishstick
My phone it beeps because I missed it

I do not answer the phone if
I do not know who is calling
I’m making no sense of it all
Said can I get a witness?

I’m only a boy in a story
Just a hallucinatory
Trippin’ on nothing there is
Living in the wilderness

With a tiger spot on my back
Living life of a cat
I just wanna relax here
And write another rap tune
Driving off on your blind man’s bike
You can say just what you like
Or nothing can stop you

Good job
Get ’em up way high
Gimme gimme that high five
Good time
Get ’em way down low
Gimme gimme that low dough
Good God
Bring ’em back again
Gimme gimme that high ten
You’re the best x7

Good job
Get ’em up way high
Gimme gimme that high five
Good time
Get ’em way down low
Gimme gimme that low dough
Good God
Bring ’em back again
Gimme gimme that high ten
You’re the best definition of good intention
You’re the best definition of good intention
You’re the best definition of good intention

You’re the best around
