Tool – “Stinkfist” PV

“Stinkfist” is the first single and first music video from Tool‘s 3rd album “AENIMA” (1996).

This song is absolutely stunning. it is the best song I’ve ever heard. 17 years ago, when I listened to “Stinkfist” for the first time, I was really surprised at its perfection of rock music.

LYRICS

Something has to change.
Undeniable dilemma.
Boredom’s not a burden anyone should bear.
Constant over stimulation numbs me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It’s not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I don’t want it.
I just need it.
To feel, to breathe, to know I’m alive.

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

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 have me any other way.

It’s not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I don’t want it.
I just need it.
To feel, to breathe, to know I’m alive.

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

Something kinda sad about the way that things have come to be.
Desensitized to everything.
What became of subtlety?
How can it mean anything to me
if I really don’t feel anything at all?

I’ll keep digging till
I feel something.

Elbow deep inside the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.

Shoulder deep within the borderline.
Relax, turn around and take my hand.
