No One Is (As I Are Be) [Version (a)]:

I can't contain the motion
Get it out of my mind
I can bend the rules
With primitive tools and stutters
I feel right at home beside the woodshed
Give as good as I do get
And I heart the part
When you play the concerned friend
When will it end?

Unfortunately none of us will get away spared
From the neverending night life that we shared
I cannot even do one sit-up
Sit-ups are so bourgeoisie
I'm busy hanging out
And spending your money
What does it mean?
I want to be there
The Song:

In 2010 or so, Beck called up Stephen Malkmus and offered his services as a producer. Malkmus and his band, The Jicks, took him up on the offer and Beck produced their album, Mirror Traffic. Beck does not perform on the album, he is merely the producer.

"No One Is (As I Are Be)" is the second track from the album.
