Prison Sex Lyrics

It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
you know it hurt me,
but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
I've got my hands bound,
my head down , my eyes closed,
half-closed, wide-open.

Do unto others what has been done to you

I'm treading water,
I need to sleep a while.
My lamb and martyre, you look so precious.
Won't you come a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to feel this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
Released in this sodomy.
For one sweet moment I am whole.

Do unto you now what has been done to me.

You're breathing so I guess you're still alive
even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Won't you come just a bit closer,
close enough so I can smell you.
I need you to feel this.
I need this to make me whole.
There's release in this sodomy.
For I am your witness that
blood and flesh can be trusted.
And only this one holy medium brings me piece of mind.

Got your hands bound, your head down,
your eyes closed.
You look so precious now.

I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this
shit blood and cum on my hands.

I've come round full circle.
My lamb and martyr, this will be over soon.
You look so precious.

It's not about pedophiles or revenge. The man who was raped rapes another innocent person, and the cycle continues.

What goes around comes around. Sounds to me like he got revenge on the cho mo that did it to him. Now, somebody get him a towel and maybe some hand sanitizer lmao

As brilliant as this song is, its truth is sadder ... I believe it was written to urge the listener to reject the central theme which is Do unto others what has been done to you.

Tool said the song is more directed at pedophiles, but more so the victims in a way there are a few steps to abuse the first being realizing it which is what this song is about.

this song is for the lost souls who were abused a point in their life. and for the person who raped the victims, he only feels more sane when he see's his precious prize in front of him.

Maynard has spoken publicly about the child abuse he survived. He has stated that writing these lyrics was his way of identifying with the trauma of those experiences and moving past them.

Idiots! the song is about the abuse cycle & if you were abused at any point in your life, did you break the cycle or restart it? Read between the lines you simple drama queens!! Intellectual music

It's a metaphore about realizing your addicted to something ,(anything) but by the time you realize it. It has become such a part of you you can't quit it. Look up the interviews on YouTube of maynard
