    Tool is one of my favorite bands of all time. Their music and lyrics are intense and progressive, and can have different meanings for different people. Now, there is one song in particular Tool plays off their 1996 album Aenima. I believe it has a certain interpretation to it that relates to the struggle with my flesh (PMO). You might have heard of it, it's called Stinkfist. To me, the song is interpreted as a man (victim) engaging in dialogue with his addiction (whatever it may be, in this case, porn). I think addiction attacks the body and mind kind of like the lyrics in this song portrays...

    Addiction: Something has to change. Undeniable dilemma. Boredom's not a burden anyone should bare. Constant over-stimulation numbs me, but I would not want you any other way

    Victim: Just, not enough! I need more! Nothing seems to satisfy! I said, I don't want it! I just need it! To breath! to feel! to know I'm alive!

    Addiction:
    Finger deep within the borderline. Show me that you love me and that we belong together. Relax, turn around and take my hand.

    Addiction:
    I can help you change. Tired moments into pleasure. Say the word and we'll be well upon our way. Blend and balance, pain and comfort deep within you, till you will not want me any other way.

    Victim:
    But, it's not enough! I need more! Nothing seems to satisfy! I said, I don't want it! I just need it! To breath! to feel! to know I'm alive!

    Addiction:
    Knuckle deep inside the borderline. This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to. Relax. Slip away.

    Victim:
    There's something kinda sad about, the way that things have come to be. Desensitized to everything. What became of subtlety?

    Addiction:
    How can this mean anything to me? If I really don't feel anything at all, then... I'll keep digging! Till I feel something!

    Addiction: Elbow deep inside the borderline. Show me that you love me and that we belong together. Shoulder deep inside the borderline. Relax, turn around and take my hand.

    If you haven't heard this song before, I suggest you just give it a go. It's a rock song, so like I said, it gets intense. Also, watch the video, it's pretty nightmarish and trippy. If you're into that sort of thing. Peace
     
  2. Nice stuff, man!



    Tool definitely has some dark vibes.
