A Perfect Circle - The Noose
A Perfect Circle - The Noose Thirteenth Step SONG MEANING On the aMOTION commentary, Maynard says that this is about what he heard at a speech. The speaker said something to the effect of "Don't let your halo choke you to death when it's hanging there around your neck". He said this is about when people feel high and mighty because they beat their addiction. He is trying to let them know that even though they beat the addiction, they still can't forget all of the hardships they put themselves and other through. Beautiful song and one of Maynard's favorites.
