"How Do You Feel?" as written by and Doug Martinez Nicholas Lofton Hexum....
I'm alright, I feel real fine
I don't live a life that's uptight
when there's a fight there's struggling
I can't roll through the world without offering
questions, what's my direction
break in the grip of depression
it comes in the day when you let things go
there comes a time to rock a show

You know the time that you feel
that nothing else really matters
here on this spot in the world
that you belong

That's where I am when the lights going down
I'll find a way to make some fun
I know there is a leak of energy
through someone

How do you feel?
cause I couldn't ask for a single thing more
how do you feel?
the moment you know just what you were for

I'm on a quest with a vision
I've got love and tradition
I'll wear a mask that grins and laughs
so remember what I've done
I'm a vibe under the sun
I penetrate all dimensions
I've come again, rejuvenate within
I'm future animation

I feel the fuel rushing through my veins
in sunburn and flames
you can take on the world
it's all in your brain

How do you feel?
cause I couldn't ask for a single thing more
how do you feel?
the moment you know just what you were for

How do you feel?
cause I couldn't ask for a single thing more
how do you feel?
the moment you know just what you were for
how do you feel?
cause I couldn't ask for a single thing more
how do you feel?
the moment you know just what you were for

    General Comment311 makes a point to be optimistic in all of their lyrics. This song is no exception. This song seems to be about overcoming difficult situations like depresion and just living in the moment. It seems overcoming all of your troubles is in your head. Its a mental battle of wether to give up and suffer, or be strong and overcome. They are a quite talented group when it comes to lyrics, or thats my opinion. Good song, great band

    General CommentThis song is about breaking through your own mental road blocks. It sort of has an occult vibe like many 311 songs. They're singing about their higher purpose in life which is to "rock a show" ....... "that's where I am when the lights goin down". The song is meant to uplift people to fulfill their goals and find their purpose in life. "you can take on the world, it's all in your brain"

    Once you've mastered yourself and your doin your thing you feel great and can't "ask for a single thing more"

    Great tune
