Thinking Of You

Album: Mer de Noms (2000)
  • Lying all alone and restless
    Unable to lose this image
    Sleepless, unable to focus on
    Anything but your surrender

    Tugging a rhythm to the vision that's in my head
    Tugging 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 that I know so well
    Spent and sighing with a look in your eye
    Spent and sighing with a look on your face like

    Sweet revelation, sweet surrender
    Sweet, sweet surrender
    Surrender
    Surrender

    Tugging a rhythm to the vision that's in my head
    Tugging 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 that I know so well
    Spent and sighing with a look in your eye
    Spent and sighing with a look on your face like

    Sweet revelation, sweet surrendering
    Sweet revelation, sweet

    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking
    Thinking of you, thinking of you, thinking

  • Daniel Rumbo from Harrisonville, Mo 64701All I know is that Maynard is awesome. When he wakes up in the morning he pisses excellence. Anybody that doesn't agree can go French kiss a .45 !!!!
  • Tiffany from Sweetwater, TnMaynard says on the "aMOTION" DVD that this song is about masturbating to the thought of anal sex. "Tugging a rhythm to the vision that's in my head. Tugging a beat to the sight of your lying. So delighted with your new understanding, something about a little evil that makes that unmistakable noise I was hearing, unmistakable sound that I know so well. Sit and sighing with that look in your eyes, sit and sweating with that look on your face like sweet revelation, sweet surrendering." It makes sense if you listen to the lyrics.
  • Steve from Laconia, NhI don't know what people are thinking, but Maynard is still in Tool... he always has been.
  • Dan from Santa Clarita, Cathat makes more sense to me Justin! By the way jim. why did you say "While in Tool"?
  • Justin from Grand Island, Nethis song is about masturbating to the thought of anal sex
  • Dan from Santa Clarita, CaMaynard says this song is more of a humorous song about anal sex... i'm personally still trying to figure out what he's talking about
