Creatures (For A While)

This song is by 311 and appears on the album Evolver (2003) and on the compilation Greatest Hits '93-'03 (2004).

My name is Volatile
I've been this way a long while
I'd surely like to rest
But the energy gets the best of me
It's been a wild ride
I wouldn't change a minute
I can't slow down inside
Guess that's why I live it

The years of mischief
followed by the weeks of thrift
I land on earth's hard face
No legs could keep that pace
And through the rest I sift

Is there ever a time
When the state of sleeping
Willingly leaves my mind

Highly frustrated wanna feel elated
Come Monday morn you feel checkmated
You can be uncool and become the rule
Exceptions were made to drown

I'm not use to it, you'd think I'd be by now
The ins, the outs the ups and the downs

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures for a while

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures, just creatures

It comes and goes it comes and goes
Sometimes I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do

I know what you were gonna say
But were afraid to cause dismay
You're lyrics switched around
The mixture watered down
And now a pointless display

It's something one won't understand
Unless they're in it with me hand in hand

Don't buy the fear don't buy that my dear
The things you love you must keep near and
Carry on and on and you won't feel withdrawn
Even if you are coming down

Sometimes it's wearable sometimes its bearable
I careen towards balance til' the glass is full

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures for a while

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures, just creatures

It comes and goes it comes and goes
Sometimes
Sometimes I get a little out there
Sometimes I go off
Sometimes just like you

I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just
Like you I do
Sometimes I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do
