Tool - Ticks And Leeches Lyrics




Suck and suck
Suckin' up all you can
Suckin' up all you can suck
Workin' up under my patience like a little tick
Fat little parasite

Suck me dry
My friend, bruised and borrowed
You thieving bastards
You have turned my blood cold and bitter
Beat my compassion black and blue

Hope this is what you wanted
Hope this is what you had in mind
'Cause this is what you're getting
I hope you're choking. I hope you choke on this

Taken all I can, taken all I can, fuckin' take
Taken all you can, taken all you can fuckin' take
Got nothing left to give to you

Blood-suckin' parasitic little tick
Blood-suckin' parasitic little tick
Blood-suckin' parasitic little tick
Take what you want and then go

Hope this is what you wanted
Hope this is what you had in mind
'Cause this is what you're getting

Suck me dry suck
Suck me dry suck
Suck me dry suck
Suck me dry

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you had in mind?
Is this what you wanted?
'Cause this this is what you're getting
I hope, I hope, I hope you choke

  20. Алексей Нестеров

    Это их лучший альбом слушайте и ох.евайте

  21. Chris Thomas

    The first time I heard this song me and my mates were on acid.... when it got to the heavy " suck me dry" part at the end in my mind I pictured maynard screaming it into my being...
    Like he was giving us this piece infused with anger and screaming it into our bodies and we in turn were screaming into existance...
    Almost as if he intended it in a therapeutic way...
    Idk if this makes sense...
    It did at the time.

    Incredible trip.

    Quinn Hazen

    10/10 acid trip. Would recommend

  27. Sputnik

    Thanks you Tool for my most favorite acid trips

  28. Load and ReLoad

    My favourite thing about this song, is how instruments appears one by one,
    Drums -> Bass -> Guitar - > Vocals

  29. Peste Noire is nightcore for nazis change my mind

    Danny is the goat

  30. M .WESTY

    Am I the only one that can hear Danny Carey speaking right after Maynard says his last I hope you choke at the very end?

  31. Shitpost Bot

    I've listened to this whole album 90 times by now and I never grow bored or tired of it.

  32. Caureen Mcatee

    Actually the perfect song to listen to whilst getting a bj lol

  33. Donovan Davis

    I smile every time I hear the drum intro. Danny is the best.🤟

  39. Trey Charles

  40. Rob-ot

    To anyone who listens to this and doesn't hit the like button.. learn to swim

  41. Coulter Sheppard

    SUUUUUCKKK!!!!

  42. chronic2001n

    May God have mercy on our souls. I can't believe this has only 314k views. My God. The Trinity is here. Bless you all.

  43. TheBendableKirb

    *Tool:* Ay boys, we going on patrol?

    *Pink Floyd:* Yo what’s good Tool let’s do it

    *Gorillaz:* Hold up, where’s your anti-music industry song at?

    *Tool:* Apologies fellas, let’s get to work

    Come Down Music

    Bendy Kirby such a cringeworthy comment dude Ahahaha

  44. Randall Johnson's Barbecue

    I'm embarrassed to say that for some time I could not tell what "those symbols" at the bottom of the cover were even when I knew what the name of the album was.

  45. As the Pool fills

    I'm just high and I fucking love it

  46. Ladonna Brock

    I dedicate this to my sons.

  47. Evan Adams

    65 ticks and leeches watched this video

  48. Jesse Lopez

    How did they do it

  49. Miguel Miranda

    Today, after so many years...

    I heard some voices at the end when the song finished. Came on here to see if anyone else heard it. 🧐🧏‍♂️

  50. Luca Amoroso Incorporated

    PLEASE GET ME LSD

  51. Davide Di Pomponio

    Music for the divine inclined so fuckin suck me dry!

  52. Rebecca Therrien

    This song puts chills down my spine. Maynard has such an amazing voice. Let's not forget the drums and guitars. They are by far the best band EVER!!!

  53. Abeey 112

    7:14 - 7:26 whats going on in the background 😨

    gage suther

    Stuff and things.

  54. Grant Hooper

    Vocals are outta this world

  55. Trevor Packard

    I like this song quite a bit, but I wish they would do something more in the "clean" section than just add very sparse drums and bass.....
    flush that section out more

    RN4L2019

    Trevor Packard totally agree. I love this song, but I still can’t shake the feeling that the clean section should’ve had more going on other than the guitar and occasional drum hit. Could’ve been so much better. But regardless, still a great song imo.

  56. LoG’s Maggot

    Slipknot: people=shit
    Tool: ticks & leeches

    And they’re both incredibly beautiful in their own way

  57. Ashutosh Chhetri

    Danny can you Carrey the drums?

  58. Crust No Tuna

    This fucking DSCVR are just a reminder of what good music actually sounds like. I’d die happy if I never had to hear another ad from them.

  59. James Rohner

    Tool unfortunately will never be as good as they were they have reached that point where they are no longer relevant or care to show how out of touch they are. I think this happens to a lot of bands who get successful in trade of success they lose any type of commonality with the people whom the music was originally intended. Luckily though every once in a while we get a band like Tool that writes to us humans and not to some ideal of a messianic star species.

    WhitePanther

    Yeah dude....the last album was great, not sure what the hell you’re talking about

    CHACHU 113

    this guy is talking crazy

  60. Terd Ferguson

    tHE rYTHEM... the rythem!!!

  61. Trent Webb

    Suck and saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk

  62. Steve Wall

    Shit me....that drum intro...then followed by THAT scream....how do you write this stuff without being just a bit deranged.......and how every album is a different sound and yet still so obviously Tool......Astounding...

  63. Alex Logan

    If anyone has witnessed a master drummer playing this song in front of them, they know the feeling of awe and speechlessness it brings forth. The level of skill and sheer virtuosity it takes to perform this song on drums is insane

  64. Marang Bad

    Make wine out of your blood so they can only stomach a glass full!

  65. Legion NB

    OH MY GOD ITS THE OFFICIAL AUDIO ON YOUTUBE FINALLY


    WHY AM I SO LATE TO THIS


    MY PLAYLIST- IT WILL BE SO LONG NOW


    HELL YES

    hachi

    yeah dude, why are you so late!

  66. Brenton Budd

    i dedicate this one the kansas "corrections" departmedartmentta

  67. Samuel Izzo

    whats the time signature

    musical roses

    Ask Rick Beato: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScRG40_7zb0

    John Larsen

    But then there are some moments at the end where they play 5 beat bars too

    John Larsen

    Sorry I thought I commented before too...

    It's a 7 beat time signature with the exception of the chorus and the long bridge which is your usual 4 or 8 beats. Idk the technical terms (like 7/8, 4/4, whatever ?) but you get the idea.

  68. Valient Productions

    I can do the opening until the double kick comes in with the toms. Who else falls apart around that part? LOL.

  69. Jellyfrosh

    You'll never hear this one played live again.

    Ol Man Jenkins

    @Jellyfrosh they played it when they toured in 2014

    Jellyfrosh

    @Ol Man Jenkins Five years is a long time not to play a song.

    Ryan Campbell

    Jellyfrosh. Listen to screaming. This song would fuck anyone's voice up for awhile. Maynard has the think of the whole tour not just a single night

    Jellyfrosh

    @CJ Judging from how bad the vocals on the new album were, I'd say Maynard's vocal performances are either completely half assed at this point or his vocal chords aren't quite what they used to be.

  70. igunzOsick

    thats what they called me in highschool suckmedry

  71. FilthyCasualKai

    Anyone besides me sometimes lay in bed sometimes and feel almost like everything in your view is far away but there's also an overwhelming sense of fear and a sensation of being watched or something until you have to get up and try to distract from it? For some reason the whole slow portion with the faint yelling in the background is so similar and it bothers me.

    Hope anyone knows what I'm talking about. I've sometimes had this phenomenon since I was a kid.

    risto ramey

    yesnoyesmaybesometimesneveralwaysyesterdaytodaypastpresentfuture.TOOL! be well my friend.

    FilthyCasualKai

    Oh I know that's not what it's about. The title just reminded me of what I described happening

    Peace Keeper

    FilthyCasualKai i have this almost every week

    Kalvin Braddock-Foster

    Their new album is about confronting that sort of fear, for you it will be that fear.

    Bare Loots

    Il have what he’s having!

  72. Valient Productions

    Seen these guys live four times and they were amazing every time. I was hypnotized when watching the drummer, Danny the whole concert. He makes it look so effortless when playing the drums.

  73. Daniel Montas

    Screams and drums ARE JUST FROM ANOTHER FUCKING WORLD

  74. Yuvey Francis

    Beauty at it’s finest

  75. marc reed

    This song helps me release my stress and anger!

  76. Elusive 1123

    When I take a strong THC edible

  77. Era Productions

    i played this full blast once in the psyche warfare training facility once on my mp3 player with a speaker ( ok it wasn't a a concert it was on an mp3 player speaker but loud enough )the nurses started to panic turn that down please they said ME doubtful

  78. 8geartodown

    5:56 so like Deftones...

    Designner

    8geartodown nothing like defttones way different time signature and Adams in drop d

  79. G G

    This song dedicated to trump and his cult of supporters and their despicable existence. I hope they choke on this.

    Fresh Fresh

    G G your a dork just rock out dude lol

    Domnic Classi

    I am one. I am no different than you, we are all of one spirit, we just run on a different level. Someday we'll see past all that petty political shit. Human to human.

    G G

    Domnic Classi Maynard disagrees.

    Cee

    @G G Who gives a fuck you pathetic groupie hes a singer not fucking jesus christ.

  80. Noah Olsen

    Soen is that you ?😂😂😂

    Ephemeral Memory

    Martin Lopez describes Tool as its own genre, which is the one his band plays.

  81. Pogn Illat

    RIP Shining head person

  82. Random Gay Boy

    Danny's drumming made 24 people miss the like button

    alison chanley

    😂🤣😂🤣😂😂

  83. Wanda Bhala

    The drumming on this song is out of this world.

    chronic2001n

    and it's 18 yrs old

    Albert Einstein

    @chronic2001n so, what you're saying is, I can legally fuck this song? Count me in!

  84. Juan Grande Franco

    If you listen carefully, my favorite part of this song is when Maynard sings "ahhhhblelebakhkgablkhlkdflkasdfhlsdkfhsldkhdsafrraaaaaaah" like around the 4:47 mark

    Socialist_ Soyboy

    Such a lyricist

    froto b

    he’s saying suck me dry I believe

    Jon Costello

    He has faint vocals almost the whole time that the instruments cut out. I really want to know what he says, as hard as I've tried I can't decipher it

  85. Justin Jagger

    19 people are leeches

  86. John Nihil

    This song is me 100%. I used to be such a kind and generous person. People are toxic. Nothing good to say about any of them.

    phosphorescent wave

    get a grip. everyone can have a positive/negative influence on others. are your parents toxic? how about your wife, sister, brothers? how about your children? have some perspective.
    this song was about tool's management who "sucked them dry" of most of their money.

    Drek Is KrEk

    @kubasniak You guys are so weak. You seem more like the toxic one here.

    Drek Is KrEk

    @phosphorescent wave Thank you for having a thought process instead of raw angst that comes straight out of my emo phase in high school.

    Scott Heslin

    I feel exactly the same. Your a pos to me 😉...

  87. SILICAI

    Highly underrated masterpiece by Tool!

  88. 17Nilrem

    18 persons are insane...

    whodat be?

    19for understanding and actually sympathising a lil bit. Fuckall🙈🙉🙊

  89. Evan Ariana

    In most music, screaming feels cheesy or unnecessary. This is the only song that genuinely makes me feel the anger behind it.

    J. Prt.

    fred durst or SOAD 😁

    Actiomedey

    Nine Inch Nails pull off screaming very well I'd say, SOAD as well. Mike Patton as well

    Bread Stick

    Yeah I love how this is about bullshit record execs. I mean they had a huge lawsuit with their record company, I can feel their anger over some asshole who just uses them and their music for personal gain

    We Play At Night

    I cringed real hard reading this. Corey Taylor?

    Zak Jackson

    Its Maynard's passion in every aspect of the vocals that get me. He's awesome

  90. Serienmörder

    Tool saved me

    chronic2001n

    Welcome aboard my friend :)

    phosphorescent wave

    from what? your creepy uncle?

    Serienmörder

    @phosphorescent wave you sir, are a dumbass. Do everyone here a favor , don't listen to Tool.. you wouldn't get it and it'd be wasted on u

    Jan M.

    @Serienmörder Dont be a Mr. Knowitall... Just ignore him! (Glückwunsch für die Besserung)

    Serienmörder

    @Jan M. I'm sorry it's my comment y'all don't have to reply

  91. Vinyl Diary666

    One of the best drummers ever! Right here

  92. Arthur Abby

    this is one of my favourite gym songs

  93. Jessica Bechtel

    🔥 🔥 🔥 😂

  94. Xavier Marini

    I see lots of people in these comments talking about how cool the drum intro is : I hope you people do know that it sounds even more amazing if you play this song right after Schism, because that intro is the "sequel" of Schism's outro, it feels like it's only one continuous song. In fact, there's a special order to play all the songs of the album, it's called "Tool's holy gift". You're welcome ;)

    Xavier Marini

    @diokokk21 thank you man, i should've write those links as well :)
    (And I'm sorry if my English isn't perfect btw, I'm from Belgium)

    diokokk21

    @Xavier Marini no worries man!I'm from Greece so my English should sound like Greek to anybody :)

    Holly Roxy

    Yea Tool said that's bullshit though...

    Xavier Marini

    @Holly Roxy I didn't know about that, that's sad

    J. Prt.

    I mean if it sounds good who cares what they said about it, right?

  95. RobZombert
