Play "Stinkfist" on Amazon Music. I am a huge Tool fan and have followed them since Opiate. I also happen to have been in a long term abusive relationship with someone suffering BPD Borderline Personality Disorder and though only a few Joseph Auer - 90908080505dbc17 considered this meaning, the obscurity would make even more sense than MAynard's normal topic of a desensitized American public.
If you are a big Tool fan then you should consider this meaning and google BPD to see the symptoms. This song very literally could describe the dance between the "Borderline" and "non" or co-dependent. I also think generally it is from the perspective of the BPD or Borderline personality. When a borderline is alone and not receiving the validation of worth from someone they slip into a very dark place of intense emotion.
A borderline did not develop proper coping mechanisms to deal with emotion. One trait of this is that they can not "revisit" the feeling of love when the person is gone. When you leave, you no longer exist, they are alone and worthless. They experience this intensified emotion a million times more magnified Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 a healthy person.
This can lead to impulsive reckless behavior, suicidal behavior, etc. The borderline can not be alone. Instead they shut down, push you away, become numb to your affection, and begin analyzing tiny perceived threats that prove you really don't care and they are in fact worthless.
These perceived threats often fictitious are blown up and become problematic, however the conundrum is though the borderline begins to disconnect and avoid this affection and behavior, if you react to them, if you start to distance yourself for self-preservation this will be worse.
Though they couldn't handle how you were treating them they didn't want you to stop. That is worse. A borderline doesn't experience Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 real sense of being alive. They often state they feel "invisible" or "empty" or "not real". They are constantly trying to fill a deep void, a hole inside them but they can't.
Their world is defined by the constant shifting intense emotions and an inability to live within the gray areas that truly define the complex life experience of an adult. They can only view the world in terms of black and white, best and worst, numb or stimulated, etc. The borderline as described above can not define any self worth through their darkness and emptiness. They don't want your affection, they need it.
They need to constantly be reminded that your adore them because that temporarily fills that need, that emptiness, it makes them feel for a moment like they are alive The borderline has a keen ability to Seek Jah Kingdom First - Exile Di Brave - The Journey Begins into everything about you fears, desires, hot buttons, etc.
They can basically mirror all of your best traits and satisfy all of your desires and become your perfect partner. You will undoubtedly be stepping on to the most exciting fullfilling ride of your life and want to devote everything to them. Nothing will be more exciting. Once you are hooked and totally in love with this person the shroud is dropped and the borderline takes over.
The dance, if you Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 , is described above. The borderline will love you like no other and build you up that they believe you are the greatest person in the world, only to subsequently cut you down and treat you like the absolute worst humananity has to offer.
This tug of war between comforting and hurting you will keep you confused about the cause and desperately trying to regain Ground - Various - Korn Family MP3 wonderful feelings of love and affection. You will tip toe to their every whim, walk on eggshells to avoid another explosion, you will try anything and everything to get it back.
Since the borderline struggles with any real identity of their own they can not stand as a separate person next to a partner. They must be totally one in every sense of the Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3.
The non-bpd gets sucked deeper into this cycle and each time the pain becomes more tolerable as the non-bpd accepts more and more of this turmoil, extending the boundaries of what they will take farther and farther.
If I really don't feel a thing at all? I'll Keep Digging Till I Feel Something" This particular verse I could interpret either way as being still from the perspective of the borderline or from the non, but ultimately I believe the whole message of this song to be from the BPD's perspective. In which case this verse would just lend more descriptive properties to the Borderline's discontentment with oneself, the search to feel, to validate, to become real, etc.
But I could see this one applied to the non who eventually will be pushed away, who eventually will recognize the abusive patterns in their relationship, who will have sustained so much damage that they realize eventually they don't know why they are staying since they have been Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 themselves now and don't feel anything.
Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 Maynard leaves the lyrics ambiguous and open for fan interpretation, and oftne employs some deliberate misdirection, still I believe in this case the song is really about BPD. The aemima album is about the evolution of humankind to the next level and how mankind itself is merely a stepping stone toward that higher consciousness. It begins with Stinkfist which, like a lot of Keenans songs, is layered richly with symbolism and metaphor.
On the surface it seems to be using fist-fucking as a metaphor for trying to connect in this modern life where we are so alienated that we are nearly numb. We've reached a critical point in our evolution. Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 like the way one of the verses goes from finger deep to knuckle deep Synthetic People - Dfender / Blok One - Just Tonite EP elbow deep and ends with shoulder deep.
It's visual and disturbing. And then the way "turn around and take my hand" could mean either inside you or like a lover extending comfort. All in all this whole album is an onion full of metaphysical concepts, Jungian symbolism and human evolutionary ideas. The more you peel away the more you'll see.
It's one of my personal favorites. Try listening to the music rather then just reading the lyrics. That will help you out alot. Since I have memory this song has always seemed very close to me, to my humanity, to what we are, as humans we always look for new things, what we liked before, we do not like it now, and so, persistently, it is a cycle that never ends and makes us "new" In the beginning of this song: "Something has to change. Un-deniable dilemma. Boredom's not a burden Anyone should bear.
Constant over stimu-lation numbs me but I would not want You any other way. He says that boredom is something he can not stand, like a typical excuse for an addict, where he knows he can not stop but at the same time has that denial that he can do it, and makes him feel guilty.
He talks about overstimulation that "generates" him but he can not stop, he can not love you in another way, maybe he refers to life itself, without that substance, "I can not love her in any other way" In the chorus of the song: Cause It's not enough. I need more. Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said I do not want it. Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3 just need it. To breathe, to feel, to know I'm Stinkfist - Various - Korn Family MP3. Finger deep within the borderline.
As we know Out On The Water - Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth says that; "It's not enough, nothing seems to satisfy it", most drug addicts have a past where the addict tries to fill the void with the substance, or with the emotions that make him feel, but there comes a point where he needs "every more time ", to feel alive, to feel like the first dose.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together. Relax, turn around and take my hand. These parts of the song seem super metaphoric to me about what is the process of an addict to the bottom, "until the shoulder is on the edge, or enters the edge" and is a process, of the song up to that point. And he can play fonds in many ways, but I think that Maynard, put in this way so "dirty" to see things so that we interpret the world where that person is, the loss of sensitivity, and the desire for something else, or of a motive.
That is my interpretation of the lyrics. I agree with everything that was said so far I'm a man of few words even though I'm a writer this disease makes us feel like we are puppet Masters controlling the other person's emotions and sexuality weather knuckle deep or shoulder deep were controlling them until they leave us then they're controlling us. Sodomy, plants a demon firmly in the victim's root chakra. That demon now controls the victim's sexual drive.
This song is another attempt to glorify 'sodomy'. I personally believe that it is a song about consumption and society presently. Nothing is ever enough and we just can't stop consuming and creating, material and non-material things.
Also, being someone who suffers from BPD, this song can seem to reference it, but just because there is the word 'borderline' does not mean that its about it or solely about it. BPD can be a different experience for everyone with different symptoms. Definitely a great song though! Songs in general are and can be interpreted in many different ways. Ones interpretation is ones own interpretation of that song.
There are hits of sexual abuse and feelings of being lost in the lyrics of this particular song. But we as reads can only assume what's being said,unless knowing the truth or true meaning behind Any song is how we react to it. If it means something to us in any way or it brings out an emotion in us a feeling. That in my opinion, is the whole point of the song. To incite an emotional connection with the songs lyrics or the writers emotions. I was told that this particular song was about a man being raped and I assumed that the rape happened in prison.
But after reading some of the other interpretation of this song and what I was told I can honestly see how the person that told me their interpretation of this song may be somewhat right. But then again I didn't write this song, so I don't really know and can't honestly say which interpretation is Dead on. To the guy that thought the song was about Borderline personality disorder. I actually have BPD and this song pretty much exactly describes what it's like to have this illness none of the lyrics are out of place and your interpretation was so spot on its almost like you could have been talking about me.
How you related the lyrics and their meanings are exactly how I interpreted them. This song is actually how I found out that I have the illness in the first place. The only area of the interpretation I would give an additional layer or perspective to is "turn around and take my hand" and not that the other interpretations don't still hold true.
Especially considering the verse "this may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to", which also echoes Jungian psychology and many of Jung's quotes such as "there is no coming into consciousness without pain. I really like this song, the meaning of the song for me is about love and feelings but the fear to speak out when you feel really deeply about a person.
I suppose it can be relevant Herd & Fitz Feat Abigail Bailey / Herd & Kent - Release The Pressure - 2007 Mix / Shore Thing sex but mostly it is fear of sharing feelings with another.
