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.

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

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??
