I don't want to sound unkind
I never liked you anyway
The thought of you makes me want
to punch somebody in the face

I know that this might sound harsh
Sorry that you found out this way
But something has got to give
I hate this more and more each day

This is not cool
You think you're awesome
Well you're not
You are a tool
And I just have to get away
Get off!

There's so much damn abhorrence
That I could cut it with a knife
Or rather that could be you
You pose for what you call a life

I'd rather just not be here
I just can't stand to see your face
So please stop talking to me
I hate you more and more each day

This is not cool
You think you're awesome
Well you're not
You are a tool
And I just have to get away
Get off!

This is not cool
You think you're awesome
Well you're not
Act like a tool
And I just have to get away
Get off...get off!

    General CommentI have the song and it's amazing. It certainly lives up to any expectations I had. The drumming is great.

    General CommentSeriously, why do people insist on the fact that every tool song must be a walking, explicaple maze of ocean-deep mysteries?

    Get over it. Tool is a very diverse band and seeing the same enigmatic puzzles eccoing throughout EACH and EVERY track tool has ever made is just not going to happen, not should it.

    The same thing goes for Right in Two, by the way. So its straightforward - sometimes thats a wiser choice.
