When I hear my name
I wanna disappear
woh, woh, woh.

When I see my face
I wanna disappear
woh, woh, woh.

When I see my face
I wanna disappear
woh, woh, woh.

When I hear my name
I wanna disappear
woh, woh, woh.

    General CommentAbout a guy who seems to hate himself.

    As for some other posts here.....
    Elitist Tool fans. Typical.

    "I'm a Tool fan. I listen to the same five bands over and over again. I contribute nothing to my current or local music scene because what's the point? It wouldn't be as good as tool, and every other band sucks because they don't sound as good as tool but i'll rip all over one that does in any way. I refuse to listen to songs under 4 minutes, with 4/4 time, or lyrics i can pronounce. Because I listen to a very intelligent group of musicians, so that must mean that I'm intelligent too!!! Never mind the fact the musical complexity is outside my comprehension, or that i never really will get the lyrics i CAN understand, but i'll act like i do to everyone else. If i find a band that's remarkably simpler than Tool i'll criticize them at every possible opportunity. If God...i mean, Maynard voices an opinion on something I'll automatically agree with everything he says because I'm an intelligent person who has opened his mind. I love Tool!!!!!"

    i wish i was here to post this sooner.

    Song MeaningTo me, this song is the perfect White Stripes song. It is the distillation of their already distilled blues rock. I think many people on this post struggle with the idea that music can have meaning far beyond the lyrics.

    The White Stripes often challenge listeners to rethink popular music and this song is a keystone in that effort. This song is an advocate for stripped down, no frills blues driven rock. It's an advocate for the power of guitar, drums and vocals as compositional elements. This song is a fearless tribute to that uncompromising vision.

    This song has much less to do with someones face or desire to see said face, and more to do with Jacks vision of what rock music is and should be. You might not hear this in this song. If you don't, that's OK. I'm through trying to convert people into White Stripes fans. It just isn't for everybody.

    General CommentSounds like tool is not the lyrics he needs to read. Saviour Machine is more like it.
