This is the song that developed over 10 years. Such abstract lyrics that make sense personally almost as if they are your own words describing whatever situation you want it to be about.

For sure one of their best.

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!
