Stinkfist Lyrics

Something has to change.
Un-deniable dilemma.
Boredom's not a burden
Anyone should bear.

Constant over stimu-lation numbs me
but I would not want
You any other way.

Cause,
It's not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said,
I don't want it.
I just need it.
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

Finger deep within the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Relax, turn around and take my hand.

I can help you change
Tired moments into pleasure.
Say the word and we'll be
Well upon our way.

Blend and balance
Pain and comfort
Deep within you
Till you will not want me any other way.

But,
It's not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said,
I don't want it.
I just need it.
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

Knuckle deep inside the borderline.
This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to.
Relax. Slip away.

Something kinda sad about
the way that things have come to be.
Desensitized to everything.
What became of subtlety?

How can this mean anything to me
If I really don't feel anything at all?

I'll keep digging till
I feel something.

Elbow deep inside the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Shoulder deep within the borderline.
Relax. Turn around and take my hand.

It's def a reference to a dysfunctional union of some variety. Whether it be with a person or a substance or whatever. Feeling nothing and digging deeper until you feel anything could be a drug addiction reference but it could also be a failing relationship where you f--k it up worse just to have some exchange of emotion. I do know one thing, if you want to laugh your a-- off, do a bong hit and then read all the meanings on this lil blog from top to bottom.

It's about drugs and in my opinion its coke. At the same time being high trying to convince a partner to partake to show that they are in it together. On the other hand opinions are like a aholes everybody has one. Unless you had it removed then go F your self !!!!!!

12379 has it right. Everyone wanted to believe Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds was about LSD and other drugs. It wasn't. It was about a drawing his son made of his friend Lucy. In the sky. With diamonds

He's talking about sexual addiction. He's describing fisting someone as a picture of going deeper in addiction. when someone starts off in any addiction it always small, but leads to farther sickness.

I think Clayton's got it right. It's how he wants more. I've been addicted to sex and it seems you want to go to heavier extremes the more you expose yourself too. He's definitely referring to fisting, that's about as extreme as you can go in my opinion. 'turn around and take my hand' lol. Nasty.

The line -Relax, Turn around and take my hand- is literal. It's describing fisting someone. It is an example of a detached and desensitized society. Where simple pleasures no longer cut it. In order to feel alive some people must take part in such extreme behaviour.
