"Creature Feature" as written by and Lyrics D. Martinez....
I want to do what's right
Be kind to everybody, yeah
Open up to light
Let it flow through my body, yeah

But sometimes I'm unsure, I tell my baby
But sometimes I'm unsure, I tell my baby

I'm slippin' into darkness
I'm creepin' into darkness
I don't want to start this
I'm attracted to darkness

Be positive with love
Just see the good in everybody
Yeah, yeah

But sometimes I'm unsure, I tell my baby
But sometimes I'm unsure, I tell my baby
There's something going on in my heart
I feel it weigh me down so I reach up for
The wide blue sky, try to pull it into
The deep arc of my arms

I'm slippin' into darkness
I'm creepin' into darkness
I don't want to start this
I'm attracted to darkness

    General CommentThis is one of the deepest 311 songs in my opinion. I think it's about wanting to do good things all the time and always be positive, but it's hard get past all that negative...sometimes you just want to let yourself "slip into darkness." It's about not taking the easy way through things and rising above that depression.

    General Commentthis is the best band ever they can do moody songs like this or the funkiest ones like all mixed up with very deep meanings, how smart these lyrics are that can be applied to pretty much everything
    311 ROCKS !!!!!!!!!

    General Commentyes it is about SA's ex-girlfriend. SA himself has told us this, just look around 311's website and you'll see. This is basically a breakup song. SA is now alone...he's "slippin' into darkness"

    General CommentIm a pretty big 311 fan, but this is their worst song by far. I mean the chorus is just a bunch of random sounds with no order or melody, i think i hear a church bell...? If i was SA's g/f i would have broken up with him as soon as i heard this song... horrible...
