"Thinking Of You" as written by and Maynard James/howerdel Keenan....
Lyin' all alone and restless
Unable to lose this image
Sleepless, unable to focus on
Anything but your surrender

Tuggin' a rhythm to the vision that's in my head
Tuggin' a beat to the sight of you lyin'
So delighted with a new understandin'
Something about a little evil that makes that
Unmistakable noise I was hearing
Unmistakable sound I know so well
Spent and sighin' with a look in your eye
Spent and sweatin' with a look on your face like

Sweet revelation
Sweet
Surrender

Surrendering
Surrendering
Surrendering
Nnn

Tuggin' a rhythm to the vision that's in my head
Tuggin' a beat to the sight of you lyin'
So delighted with a new understanding
Something about a little evil that makes that
Unmistakable noise I was hearing
Unmistakable sound I know so well
Spent and sighin' with a look in your eyes
Spent and sweatin' with a look on your face like

Sweet revelation
Sweet surrendering
Sweet revelation
Sweet

Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'
Thinkin' of you, thinkin' of you, thinkin'

Sweet revelation
Sweet surrendering
Sweet revelation

    General CommentI'm pretty sure MJK likes to make his "audience" feel stupid. When I mean "audience", I mean those who think they understand what he's talking about.

    All in all... don't believe everything you hear. If Maynard willing throws curveballs in all his songs, why wouldn't he do the same with what comes out of his mouth on stage talking to his audience.

    He knows what people like to hear. I could just see the look on the crowd as he threw out that comment about it being of anal sex. He's phucking with you. Don't let him get to you. It's all a game.

    But that's just my 2 cents, Yeah?

    General CommentUm...question.

    I totally agree that it's about jerking off.

    But why does it have to be jerking off to the thought of anal? Where is that information in the lyrics? Upon looking at the lyrics, I'm more with the idea that the speaker's partner is - or was - a virgin - "new understanding," "sweet revelation." In my opinion, it doesn't HAVE to be about anal, because it doesn't really specify...

    General CommentI think this song is about that amazing feeling you get right after you've had amazing sex and your partner's rythm and energy is still pulsing through you and you just have this like...this feeling of absolute peace. I have had this feeling ;)

    General CommentI read somewhere that maynard had stated that this song was about jerkin off to the memory of having anal sex with someone, this ignited a big debate about his sexuality and all that but since hes married we know how that ended so yeah just thought id throw that out there

    General Commentthese lyrics are very very very wrong

    each suck = tug
    each spit = spent

    and lots of other errors...

    the correct lyrics:
    lying all alone and restless unable to lose this image
    sleepless unable to focus on anything but your surrender
    tuggin a rhythm to the vision that's in my head tuggin a beat to the sight of you lying
    so delighted with a new understanding something about a little evil that makes that unmistakable noise i was hearing unmistakable sound i know so well spent and sighing with that look in your eye spent and sighing with a look on your face like
    sweet revelation sweet surrender
    thinking of you thinking of you
    sweet revelation sweet surrendering

    General CommentThen I suggest you'll report this lyric with the correct lyrics... (And by that I mean spelled correctly, with capital letters and with stanzas(or however you spell that ;)), other wise I will just delete the report.
