Pushit
Tool Lyrics


I saw the gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Take care not to make me enter
If I do, we both may disappear

Know that I will choke until I swallow
Choke this infant here before me
What is this but my reflection?
Who am I to judge or strike you down?

But you're pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me

You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me
You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me

Rest your trigger on my finger
Bang my head upon the fault line
You'd better take care not to make me enter
'Cause if I do, we both may disappear

But you're pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me

You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me
You're pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me

I'm slipping back into the gap again
I'm alive when you're touching me
Alive when you're shoving me down, yeah
But I'd trade it all for just a little peace of mind

Push it on me
Push it on me
Push it on me
Push it on me
You're pushing and shoving and scrambling
Keep my feet flat on the ground

I am somewhere I don't wanna be, yeah
Push me somewhere I don't wanna be
You put me somewhere I don't wanna be
Seeing someplace I don't wanna see
Never wanna see that place again

Saw that gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Managed to push myself away
And you, as well, my dear

If when I say I might fade like a sigh if I stay
You minimize my movement anyway
I must persuade you another way

Pushing and shoving
Pushing and shoving, pushing me
There's no love in fear

Yeah, I'm staring down the hole again
Hands are on my back again
Survival is my only friend
Terrified of what may come, yeah

Remember I'll always love you
As I claw your fucking throat away
It will end no other way
It will end no other way

The lyrics for "Pushit"
I saw the gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Take care not to make me enter
If I do we both may disappear

You know that I will choke until I swallow
Choke this infant here before me
What is this but my reflection?
Who am I to judge or strike you down?

But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me

You still love me
You still love me but you didn't need to shit on me
You still love me
You still love me but you didn't need to shit on me

Rest your trigger on my finger
Bang my head upon the fault line
You'd better take care not to make me enter
'Cause if I do we both may disappear

But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me
But you're pushing me shoving me

You still love me, you still love me
She didn't mean to pushit on me.
You're pushing me shoving me
You're pushing me shoving me

I'm slipping back into the gap again
I'm alive when you're touching me
Alive when you're shoving me down, hey

But I'd trade it all for just a little peace of mind

Pushit on me
Pushit on me
Pushit on me
Pushit on me
You're pushing and shoving and scrambling
Keep my feet flat on the ground

I am somewhere I don't wanna be
Push me somewhere I don't wanna be
Put me somewhere I don't wanna be
Seeing someplace I don't wanna see
Never wanna see that place again

Saw that gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Managed to push myself away
And you, as well, my dear

If when I say I might fade like a sigh if I stay
You minimize my movement anyway
I must persuade you another way

Pushing and shovin'
Pushing and shoving, push at me!
There's no love in fear

Staring down the hole again
Hands are on my back again
Surviving is my only friend
Terrified of what may come

Remember I will always love you
As I claw your fucking throat away
It will end no other way
It will end no other way

@C H its miles better, Salvial is just this minus the first part in terms of dynamics (i know they do the first part but its nothing compared to this version). The song needs the initial energy so when in the middle in plunges into the chill section, that actually means something.

It blow my mind that anyone can hear the Salvial version and prefer it, hey each to their own we all like different things and that is cool, but it makes no sense to me at all, the Salvial version is dead imo compared to this one, much less life in it, and further from the initial emotions in the track. There is a strange inverse intimacy for me with the studio version, in that the heavier first half feels more connected to the subject matter of the lyrics.

I am a musician myself and the Salvial version, if I am honest feels like Tool got bored of playing Push It live and wanted to switch it up and found that way to be an easy and effective way to do it, It feels simplified in the beginning, I thin they killed 2 birds with one stone and switched it to make it less taxing to play (I can forgive them this, Touring is hard, playing every night is hard, and they play plenty of hella complex stuff) but also they switched it probably more for their own sake (again I understand this it can get boring playing the same tunes in the same way).

The other aspect is the track is for sure about toxic relationships in some way, and maybe give that time had pass, maybe Maynard felt differently about the situation and wanted to reflect that in the track? who knows, these are all guesses.

The point is though, it has always felt like a practical touring set streamlining move to me rather than their usual inspired artistic decisions, hope that makes sense. I also wanted to make it clear I am not mad at them for it, as I get it (if that's why they did it) Hell even being in Nirvana would have been hard touring and they play simple as fuck stuff, Tool play intricate technical landscapes, streamlining makes sense

[Intro]
I saw the gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Take care not to make me enter
If I do, we both may disappear

[Verse 1]
Know that I will choke until I swallow
Choke this infant here before me
What is this but my reflection?
Who am I to judge or strike you down?

[Chorus]
But you're
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me
You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me

[Verse 2]
Rest your trigger on my finger
Bang my head upon the fault line
You better take care not to make me enter
'Cause if I do, we both may disappear

[Chorus]
But you're
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me
You still love me, you still love me
But you didn't need to push it on me
You're pushing and shoving me
Pushing and shoving me

[Verse 3]
I'm slipping back into the gap again
I'm alive when you're touching me
Alive when you're shoving me down, yeah
But I'd trade it all
For just a little peace of mind

[Chorus]
Push it on me, push it on me
Push it on me, push it on me
You're pushing, and shoving, and scrambling
To keep my feet flat on the ground

[Bridge]
I am somewhere I don't wanna be, yeah
Push me somewhere I don't wanna be
You put me somewhere I don't wanna be
Seeing someplace I don't wanna see
Never want to see that place again

[Verse 4]
Saw that gap again today
While you were begging me to stay
Managed to push myself away
And you, as well, my dear
And if when I say I might fade like a sigh if I stay
You minimize my movement anyway
I must persuade you another way

[Outro]
Pushing and shoving
Pushing and shoving
Pushing me
There's no love in fear
Yeah, I'm staring down the hole again
Hands around my back again
Survival is my only friend
Terrified of what may come, yeah
Remember I'll always love you
As I claw your fucking throat away
It will end no other way
It will end no other way

Comment Section Summarized

man all these comments talking about friends, buying the album with and talking about it. my friends were and are all morons, so while they enjoyed when i brought it over for the fact that it had the holographic motion, but that's about it.

Tool performed at my college back in 1996. I remember being extremely excited, none of my friends were fans so I went alone... I met an exchange student that was there as well, she never heard of Tool but she was looking forward to good music. We watched the concert together. At the end, I remember being disappointed that they didn't perform Pushit, it was my favorite song. Anyway, the crowd was thinning out and everyone was leaving. I was going with the exchange student for some drinks when we hear the guitar. I turned around so fast and ran to the stage, holding the exchange students hand. Tool played Pushit and OmG it sounded like heaven. The exchange student was brought to tears... To end my story, me and the exchange student became very fast friends. After the semester we wrote letters and video chatted every day. We were best of friends. told each other everything. Her sister messaged me and told me she had fallen ill. my best friend passed away a few weeks later. that was 5 years ago. Tonight was the first time I could listen to Pushit and not cry. I smiled the whole time. Thanks so much Tool for the beautiful music and for introducing me to the best person I have ever known. ♡♡♡

I found myself in this song, didn't know that I was hiding, my mother was a prostitute and died at 27 I was 11 years old, TOOL brought me out of a deep dark hole that I wasn't even aware that I was thinking in, I'm glad you feel such a deep connection as well, no one knows this life has in store for us, but it's the bittersweet exchange that makes it all worth it...🖤
