Lyrics for Stinkfist by TOOL:

Verse 1
Something has to change
Undeniable dilemma
Boredom's not a burden
Anyone should bear
Constant over-stimulation numbs me
But I would not want you any other way

Chorus
Just not enough
I need more
Nothing seems to satisfy
I said I don't want it
I just need it
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive

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

Verse 2
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
'Til you will not want me any other way

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

Post-Chorus
Knuckle deep inside the borderline
This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to
Relax, slip away

Interlude
Chupa minha pica bicha
Chupa minha pica bicha
Chupa minha pica bicha

Bridge
Something kinda sad about
The way that things have come to be
Desensitized to everything
What became of subtlety?
How can this mean anything to me
If I really don't feel anything at all?
I'll keep digging
'Til I feel something

Outro
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

Song Facts

The first track on Tool’s 1996 album Ænima. The theme of this song is about how people will take things to the extreme for pleasure by using “fisting” as a metaphor.

Because of this, radio and TV stations were not allowed to say the title of the track on the air. They would instead call it “Track #1.” One MTV VJ at the time, Matt Pinfield, the station’s metalhead, would sometimes send a signal to the fans by waving his fist in front of his nose when introducing the song.
