I have had to listen to the rantings of
Insecure people that have no trouble
Overreacting every time
They see a song or comment they dont like
Figure that their artist isnt talented enough
To sustain some insults from this crazy...
So now in this comparison
We'll see dashboard's faithful reaction

I think its due time
To compare two bands in these rhymes
One band has lyrics that are genuine
Well thought out with analyzations in
The other one likes to complain
Whining is how they stay sane
When something bad happens to them
They cry pout whine put never analyze
One band thinks their lyrics through
Another tries to sell to you
One band can care less if you know who they are
One band wants to be really big stars
One band caters to no one they see
The other loves to be on mtv
One band attracts people of all ages
The other is mainly for the pre-pubiscent stages

Its a comparison
Can you guess?
It's a comparison
Whats next?

This one band will push the envelope till it folds
The other is happy with the status quo
These guys is one have gone through tough yet are strong
For the others life has been easy too long
Can you guess now?
It should be easy
If you can't
Ill continue for thee

One band has the tendency to sell out
The other will not there is no doubt

No i must admit the rest is speculation
But this will make interesting for you dashboard nation
I would bet that one is a conservative
The other would rather die than vote for some idiot named W.

Its a comparison
Can you guess?
It's a comparison
Whats next?

We must answer whats already known.
Can you guess what bands have been under the comb?
Dashboard and Tool I have compared for you?
It should be clear now who is who.

Tool is the one who would never sell out
Tool is the better band here, no doubt!
I must take back that slanderous slam
Is it possible that tool is better than pearl jam?

What the main point of my rambling is?
Look closely what good bands possess!

    General Commenthmmm, I don't think tool is all that. Sounds to me like the song is trying to describe most of the underground bands I listen to. These bands have creative, inspirational, well thought through, educated lyrics. Please view the lyrics for Saviour Machine and you will understand what I say.

    General Commentwill do i always like to check out new bands thanks for the suggestion, but tool is a good band though if you really listen to the music and read the lyrics after a while you really appreciate it because the songs are really deep

    General Commenti think Tool is amazing and they are all geniuses, literally, but i don't see why you hafta bash D.C.. Chris Carrabba struggled just like every good musician and he is a talented writer. just because you don't enjoy him doesn't mean he lacks talent. i do not enjoy the rolling stones, but i could never say they suck. think about it.
