TOOL: SOBER LYRICS


There's a shadow just behind me
Shrouding every breath 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 called must we
Just before the son has come
Jesus, won't you f***ing whistle
Something but the past and done?
Jesus, won't you f***ing whistle
Something but the past and 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 what's past and done
Mother Mary won't you whisper
Something but what's past and 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 (x4)

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 (x4)
Heart this
