TOOL


Sober Lyrics

There's a shadow just behind me,
shrouding every step I take,
making every promise empty,
pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler
who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of must we,
just because the son has come.

Jesus, won't you f**king whistle
something but the past is done?
Jesus, won't you f**king whistle
something but the past is done?

Why can we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
And why can't we drink forever?
I just want to start things over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
just enough to bring you down

Mother Mary won't you whisper?
something but the past is done.
Mother Mary won't you whisper
something but the past is done.

Why can't we not be sober?
I Just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start things over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
Trust me, trust me, trust me,
trust me, and trust me

Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want,
I want what I want,
I want what I want,
I want what I want

Its the diseased mind fighting vs the spiritual nature in everyone,somthing but the past endured meaning the good is sitting quietly beneath the evil ,uprooting its nature when the pain gets to great ,its a fight for balance between good and bad

This is about addiction and its root cause. As someone who abuses alcohol, the lyrics are spot on. You regret, you just want to start over and use the knowledge of your mistakes . Why can't we just be sober? I just want to start this over.

tristan has it... ill agree with everyone on here though because what it means to you, is what it means to you. but if you arent an addict, you wont see what it meant to them

Whether or not the song has religious connotation is irrelevant. The chilling honesty (and hopelessness) of this song appears to be the overarching theme...

He knows what he is and is honest about it. He knows mankind and he just wants a distraction from his inner worthlesness. He wants to try again... somewhere in the past. It's where we all wanna be.

I think this song is About addiction and the church. Not Christianity, just the church. And how the church is always quick to judge others by calling them liars, imbeciles, etc Because of past mistake

I agree with the majority and say that this song isnt really about religion as it is getting over addiction and knowing at some point you may destroy what u have rebuilt.. and trying to find salvation
