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 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 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

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 agree that this it's about religion.but I also believe it is about addiction. If you ask maynard, he'll tell you basically what chris said. He has been quoted to say that any interpretation is right

I will say you could be right today we see false hopes and destruction left by the many false church's who act holy. Read 1st John 5:19 and you'll see why religion is like it is. TOOL!!

The song isnt about getting over drugs. Its about religion and the effect its had on him and on us. He watched his mother pray to God and Jesus when she died of cancer when he was 11. Judith?

I don't have drug addiction, but I am addicted to self mutilation. The feeling is utterly dreadful. I think of this song whenever I do it.
