When I saw TOOL in '98 they played this song, but they opened it with an extended guitar solo... Maynard said he was in the process of re-imagining his older work, so they started remixing each song a bit differently live. Did anybody else see/hear that??

I've seem Tool live more times than I can count and they rarely play this song anymore these days. Nearly every time, some drunk ingrate complains on his way out the doors that they didn't play 'Sober.' It's a shame there are actually people out there who don't realize, especially after just seeing them perform live, what Tool is and how privileged we are to have this one band that is among the few that are true artists and musicians.

Battle the demons in all forms. Cathartic, deprecating, and freedom is in the song.
