Extrait du DVD Salival, la clip vidéo Ænema de Tool montre peu mais est bien sûr porteur de messages forts, comme par exemple un explicite Fuck L. Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones, le créateur de l’Eglise de Scientologie.
Chanson qui date de 1996 avec l’album éponyme, elle remporta un Grammy Award pour la Best Metal Performance en 1998.

Paroles de Tool – Ænema :

Some say the end is near.
Some say we’ll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this
bull-shit three ring circus sideshow of…

Freaks here in this
hopeless fucking
hole we call LA.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time.
Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay.

Fret for your figure and
fret for your latte and
fret for your lawsuit and
fret for your hairpiece and
fret for your prozac and
fret for your pilot and
fret for your contract and
fret for your car
it’s a bull-shit three ring circus sideshow of…

Freaks here in this
hopeless fucking
hole we call LA.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time.
Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky,
followed by meteor showers and tidal waves,
followed by fault-lines that cannot sit still,
followed by millions of dumb-founded dipshits,
and some say the end is near,
some say we’ll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this
stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit.

One great big festering neon distraction.
I’ve a suggestion to keep you all occupied.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.

Mom’s gonna fix it all soon.
Mom’s comin’ round to put it back the way it ought to be.

Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.

Fuck L. Ron Hubbard and fuck all his clones.
Fuck all these gun-toting hip-gangster wannabes.

Fuck retro anything, fuck your tattoos.
Fuck all you junkies and fuck your short memory.

Fuck smiley glad-hands with hidden agendas.
Fuck these dysfunctional, insecure actresses.

Cuz I’m prayin’ for rain.
I’m prayin’ for a tidal wave.
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna see it go ridin’ down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don’t just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t
welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it come down.
Bring it down.
Suck it down.
Flush it down.
