“Sober” by Tool

It has been a while since I posted, especially music. Been a weird and tough few days, but I am alive. So, Todays mood is “Sober” by Tool:

There’s a shadow just behind me,
Shrouding every step I take,
Making every promise empty,
Pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler
Who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of “must we”
Just because the son has come.

Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?
Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can’t we drink forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
Just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary, won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done?
Mother Mary, won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done?

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can’t we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
Trust me [5x]

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start things over.
Why can’t we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want

  1. Thank you for sharing, my friend! My Daddy is here with me and he told me this is one of his favorite songs (Tool is his favorite band). He’d never heard this particular version and thought it sounded a little different than the original. I had never heard it and enjoyed listening to it. It certainly expresses emotion!!!
