StinkFIST duh | Reviewer: Lacey | 10/9/09
Finger deep within the borderline, knuckle deep? Turn around and take my hand? This may hurt but you'll get used to it? After this you won't want me any other way? I guess I can't see this song being anything but about fisting. Reread with this mindset and tell me you don't see it.
HAHAHA!!!!!! | Reviewer: ariel | 10/8/09
maynard is probably reading all this and thinking....like any of these fuckers know what my songs are about!......he's probably amused by everyone's opinion and entertained if anything! all these songs could be taken any way you want to take them and i think if everybody who likes them can connect in some way to their lyrics....then the mission is accomplished....either way you cant say the music is bad if you really know what rock music is!!!!!!!!!!
Paradoxically to feel empty yet be overstimulated? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/30/09
When I read the progression of the lyrics, I get the feel the the fistfucking is an analogue for the sensation of violation and of boundaries being overthrown. This song can be interpreted any many ways. However, the relationship is alway parasitical. One is receiving relef, release or gratification at another's expense. My preception of this songs belongs the arena that a loved one, significant other or spouse is the major outlet of stress relief and major part of self identity. Without the person's interaction the narrator feels nothing, feels boredom, and has no outlets for their compulsions. This can include self mutliation, sexual addiction, drug addiction, and abuseive relationships. eating disorders. This can caused by pathological obessions, neuroses, some personalty disorders, but in this case I think the song is talking about Bordline Personalty Disorder, and all its premutations.

Dear anonymous arseholes,
By the sounds of things you wouldn't know 'good music' if it came up and bludgeoned you to death with a 5-iron. Those who state that tool are 'shit' simply lack the capacity to understand the intense ingenuity that is being demonstrated in these masterpieces. Tool are an amazing band and have written some of the best tracks of all time. This is not a matter of opinion, this is a fact. Their accomplishments reflect this, both through album sales and critical acclaim.
Fuck you if you disagree, because you're wrong.

Tool has no issues, you people can't even comprehend Maynard's level of thought, since the beginning of the band he was a heavy psychedelic abuser, you see it in his music, in the style of their album artwork, almost every aspect of the band shows what goes through his mind. He may not be a lyrical and conceptual genius, but he is damn close to one. And to have the audacity to call it "ISSUES" is ironic in almost every way possible.
Plus, he was never raped when he was younger, if you took the time and actually read the lyrics of the song and have actually gone through remedial English classes in high school you would actually see something.
Agreed | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/18/09
Tool has some issues. It is quite sad to read that everyone else thinks that Maynard is a genius. Rape is not an excuse to make crappy music. Stop feeling sorry for yourself by listening to this pathetic crap. Grow up, get some class, and treat people with respect.
Stinkfist | Reviewer: Tim Schepers | 8/10/09
This song is obviously about the overstimulation we experience every day due to mass media/internet.
Everything is getting more "extreme" every day.
It's about the emotional numbness and inability to be surprised or shocked by something because of this constant overstimulation.
If you feel like you've seen everything... What's next?
How can one live a satisfying life with the knowledge that there isn't more?
You need something to keep you alive. Something to look forward to. Something new every time.
And maybe, just maybe, you can find something that satisfies you for a short while.
I (and many others) am a victim of this overstimulation by mass-media and internet.
I can't feel anything anymore. I have seen everything. From people ripped apart in car crashes to some guy fucking a goat to distastefull holocaust jokes. Nothing can shock me. I'm numb.
The lyrics embody a theme that is too familiar to me for me to be fooled by the pun title.

If you seriously believe that tool makes there lyrics to feel sorry for themselves then you are so wrong, this is progressive not grunge. Maynard says himself that his music is about realizing the evil or the vicious circle you are or are in and changing that. Tool's music is about expanding your mind and learning from your mistakes and in fact Maynard calls out this "cool" image of lyrics or style that you tried to say about tool in a song called hooker with a penis and how people who try to be cool or a part of something cool are the real posers. and as far as anal porn and all that where do you get that from? you barely know anything about tool and what there about so how could you know that? Maynard makes anal sex references because supposedly he was raped when he was a child so again I prove you have no idea what your talking about. Don't try to degrade a band if you have no idea what they are really about, until you've taken the time to find it out for yourself.
hmm | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/6/09
the dude below me is a cum guzzler, twat waffle, cock dagger, regergetated cum bubble, thunder cunt, bubble gum chewing bitch. It takes a serious type of prick to take their hand off their cock and their finger out of their ass, and back away from the incest four way amputee bestiality their guilting over long enough to insult someone which has accomplished much more than they have. I can say this safely because you have to have been the result of a one night stand half-paid abortion prayer session to have not accomplished more than you...kill yourself please, thanks.
Maynard is a genius | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/6/09
the guy below me is a douchebag, Tool is amazing. the lyrics that Maynard James Keenan writes are amazing, they're so deep and brilliant. Tool is a great band, their sound is different then any other band out there, Tool isn't my favorite band, but they're pretty close.
Just a thought | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/29/09
Maynard's got nothing on Rick Springfield. Have you even heard "Don't Talk to Strangers"? What a dynamic song, and WAY more abstract than anything Tool could put out. Tool is a band for people who need to feel sorry for themselves, and need to be empowered by taboo subjects like hurting other people, anal sex, and drugs. Maynard is not a genius, he is an unfortunate individual who doesn't have a way, done to many drugs, watched way to much gay porn; then tries to justify it in lyrics morons think are "cool".
Sound | Reviewer: Kittenwire | 7/13/09
I agree that the lyrics are genius in their applicability. But the biggest part of what I love about Tool's music is the sound-- the unusual melody, the powerful voice, the timing of the song, the management of the sounds of all the instruments. What makes a band really great-- coöperation.
Everyone has a totally different opinion of this song | Reviewer: Elmer666 | 6/20/09
,and they are all relevant. I am not all that big of a Tool Fan, just getting into Maynard/Tool because of people at work and I am just impressed with how "Stinkfist" can affect so many people in so many different ways. Just read the above statements. I am absolutely amazed how the seemingly simple lyrics can be related to many different ailments... Drug addiction, Sex desensitized, even very simple life problems. It seems to me that it was written to relate to anything that any person can relate to in their own fucked up life. Which is pure Genius song writing and sells a fuck ton of albums.
I think... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/5/09
Its about the invasion that sex poses on us, and the lack of intimacy we sometimes feel toward it. We've become numbed and desensitized to the emotional intimacy that sex is supposed to bring, and instead focus on its physical aspect. "How can this mean anything to me if I don't feel anything at all?" I think its also referring to the ambivalence of love. Sometimes we feel like we need more of that person we love, but other times we feel bored and tired by the overstimulation they bring.
My meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/09
This song, for me, is about complacency. For example, the first time you have sex, you're proper scared, then the second time, you're less scared, till one day you find yourself quite happily running around the pub/club trying to get into the first pair of underwear you can get your hands on. It's about becoming numb to the things that you were scared of initially.
