Down Lyrics

Chill. light on my sight as my ego becomes
A funky child with some words on my tongue
Be like intake of breath and my mouth gets loose
While i scatter my spit i dream of juice
Have you ever made out in dark hallways
Displayed a kiss that made your day or say
Play a track from your record collection
It's your mix, congratulations

We've changed a lot and then some some
Know that we have always been Down down
And if i ever didn't thank you you
Then just let me do it now

I bet you light up when we start the show follow me now
Very closely because i told you so you know
We glow because we throw sun rays
We be freaky and we want to stay


Lightning strikes yo we be in that violent force of light
Guaranteed to turn it out as bad as dolemite
'cause we're dope kidchange like a chameleon
And the channel whenever that wack show real world is on
You know we dazzle like ghetto box boomin' battles
Rattle inside your head feel redeemed like cola bottles
Fall in love with you teachers on the wax
We are self made check the technique 311 in LA


Keep my feet on the ground
Keep my head in the clouds
Electrified by the sound
Comes from the down

  • Written by 311 lead singer Nick Hexum and DJ S. A. Martinez, this is a song for the fans (who were "down" with them) to thank them for being loyal before the band became successful, and also an expression of gratitude for their bandmates.

    311 emerged from humble beginnings in Nebraska, and when their second major-label album, Grassroots, made the albums chart (at #193) and got some radio play, they knew it was going to work out for them. "There was momentum swelling," Hexum said in his Songfacts interview . "We knew we were blowing up, and it was strictly from a grassroots basis, and not from being media darlings or anything like that. It's a 'thank you' to both the band members and the fans."
  • This was a breakthrough single for 311, marking their first appearance on the Billboard Airplay chart (it wasn't released as a single, so it wasn't eligible for the Hot 100) and getting them on MTV. The song isn't typical pop fare, but it made an adventurous addition to many playlists looking to branch out from grunge, hip-hop and easy-going pop (we're talking about you, Hootie & The Blowfish).
  • 311 performed this on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on August 23, 1996. (thanks, Kiona - Huntsville, AL)
  • The music video, which makes liberal use of various fun-house effects, was directed by Josh Taft, who also did the Stone Temple Pilots vids for "Plush" and "Sex Type Thing."
