Something has to change
Un-deniable dilemma
Boredom's not a burden
Anyone should bear
Constant over stimulation numbs me
But I wouldn't want you
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 breathe, to feel, 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 want 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 breathe, to feel, 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

    General CommentI love Tool. I love Maynard. I hate stupid boys who I associate Tool with. A stupid boy that broke my heart. Shame on you stupid boys for ruining good bands like Tool for me.

    Anyway. Freaking good song. To me, it's about continually being hurt by someone, but learning how to deal with that pain.

    How ironic...
