Sober - 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.

Mother Mary, won't you whisper
something but the 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.
I will work to elevate you,
just enough to bring you down.

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. trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me.

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...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...
I want what I want...
