Created with stop-motion animation tecniques & directed by Guitarist Adam Jones, who also did animation on the dinosaurs in Jurrasic Park. Another controversial song. The song's lyrics dealt with child abuse. Keenan's lyrics begin: "It took so long to remember just what happened. I was so young and vestal then, you know it hurt me, but I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive... I've got my hands bound and my head down and my eyes closed and my throat wide open." - supposedly references to sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of his stepfather while a child basically "imprisioned" in his home -hence "Prison Sex." MTV stopped airing the "Prison Sex" video after a couple plays supposedly for disturbing treatment of the sensitive subject of child abuse. In the promo tour for Undertow one of their gigs was the Garden Pavillion in Hollyweird which the band didn't find out until the last minutes before the show, was owned by L. Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology (famous for celebs and Hollyweird stars like Tom Cruise, John Travolta, etc., who believe life on Earth is the results of superior alien life in the cosmos "seeding" the planet). This clashed with "the band's ethics about how a person should not follow a belief system that constricts their development as a human being." ..as Keenan later explained why he spent most of the show baa-ing like a sheep at the audience in protest.
