Jimmy (5:24)

Cover of Ænima

From Ænima and 6 other releases

jimmy is the ninth track from the / group Tool’s second full length LP Ænima. “jimmy” is a reference to James Maynard Keenan, lead singer of Tool. It is a song about his childhood “Under a dead Ohio sky,” and a traumatic event happening when he was 11, presumably, his mother leaving in some way: “Eleven and she was gone, Eleven is when we waved goodbye.” It is the least played non-interlude track from Ænima, having only been played 42 times. It was last played live in 2002.

What was it like to see,
The face of your own stability,
Suddenly look away,
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?

    I remember a sleepless night on which I kept repeating '1 and 1 are one, eleven' in my mind, being soaking wet and spinning on my bed. Psychodelic as fuck [2] Omg. I read your shout yesterday and today, I hade the same dream as you. EXACTLY THE SAME. The only difference is that I was actually sleeping. After every "One" I was kicking my bed, like this: "Till ONE and ONE, are ONE." Thank you, stranger, for sharing this.

    Always think of the days of sitting in class daydreaming with that riff pumping through my head... Oh the monotony of High School.. How I don't miss thee.
