This song is definitely about alcohol and other drugs. It was written about someone associated with the band. Producer/man a g e r

I want to claim that I would leave my seat and jump down onto the floor level at a tool concert if they started the show with the song Sober. They opened was sober comma and I chickened out so that I wouldn't be kicked out of the concert before I got to see my beloved Tool!

When this first came out, I thought for sure that he was singing I am just a worthless lawyer. Couldn't really figure how that fit in with the rest of the lyrics, but loved the song and the band ever since.

Never been a bad tool track! I give the undertow album much more credit than most say it deserves even. I can say that I'm not the biggest fan of the opiate album, but it's still not bad. That sentence right there most definitely puts off a certain misperceptio n to the extant of my love and deep... Idk, I guess you could call it a very very deep bond that I have had with Maynard and the band for decades! That's b-cuz, that statement is even putting it lightly lol. This song tho, it hits me the

This song and prison rape are two of my favorite songs. The lyrics are actually insightful and while they are def depressing in both songs they are real and honest. The line " I will find the center in you I will chew you up and leave trust me, trust me' I know I have felt that way about what people have done to me and what I know I have done to others. Why can't we just be sober, why can't we sleep forever, just want to start this over I mean who hasn't gone through this as well and I'd you hav
