Aenema Meaning

This Aenema Meaning focuses on the Fault lines in California. It has been in popular speculation that if an earthquake were to happen in the right place, part of Southern California would break off and fall into the Ocean.

The song is saying that the people there, especially the ones in Los Angeles, are so full of evil that Maynard hopes the fault lines would break and they would fall into the ocean.

Why not turn on the video of the song to listen to while you read this Article?

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (flaming guitars? Seriously?), but the major label experience he delivers is an asset for any artist.

Tool - Aenema

Verse & Chorus

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.

When Maynard says "Bull-shit three ring circus sideshow of freaks" he is referring to Gangsters, Junkies, Marketers, and Actors/Actresses.

It is also alluded that he could be referring to those of the Homosexual or Bi-Sexual Community.

When he says "Flush it all away" he is making a reference to the word "Enema", which is when a tube is inserted into a persons anus to flush out toxins and excretion for medical purposes (Some people do it just for fun).

"Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay" might be a puzzling line for any of you who know your geography. You see, Arizona Bay doesn't exist.

But if the Fault lines cracked, and part of our earth broke and fell into the Ocean, it would create a Bay in the Arizona Area.

The Song title is actually made up of 2 words. The first one that I already mentioned is Enema.

The second word is Anima. There are two definitions to the word. The first is to take an inner look at a persons soul. The second is the psychological thought that every person that is born, has both a female and a male side. The Males suppress their feminine side as they grow up, and vice-versa with the women.

That allows there to be 2 definitions for the word Aenema:

  1. Aenema is a cleansing (Flushing) of the Soul.
  2. Aenema is forcing out (Flushing Out) the Alter-Gender to the Surface.

If Aenema is the cleansing of the Soul, then it would simply be referring to Los Angeles falling into the Ocean, and all of it's problems with it.

If it refers to #2, then he could also be making a reference to all the Homosexuals and Transvestites that are living there (As Mentioned above).

Verse 2

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.

Angry guy huh...?

It is this section of the song where he is listing off all the people that he wants to see drown.

"L Ron Hubbard" is the creator of the Religion Scientology. Obviously Maynard has got a problem with him, and all the other followers of the Scientology religion.

He then talks about everyone else that he wants to see die. The Junkies, Smiley Glad-hands with Hidden Agendas, Dysfunctional Insecure Actresses.

I won't interpret every single lyric in this Aenema Meaning Article, but I have painted a good enough picture that if you were to read the lyrics, you would be able to understand what they mean.

Whole Song Lyrics

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...

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 mayhem.
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.
