"Die Eier Von Satan" as written by Daniel Carey, Adam Jones, Justin Chancellor and Maynard James Keenan....
Die eier von satan

Eine halbe tasse staubzucker
Ein viertel teeloffel salz
Eine messerspitze turkisches haschisch
Ein halbes pfund butter
Ein teeloffel vanillenzucker
Ein halbes pfund mehl
Einhundertfunfzig gramm gemahlene nusse
Ein wenig extra staubzucker
Und keine eier

In eine schussel geben
Butter einruhren
Gemahlene nusse zugeben und
Den teig verkneten

Augenballgro?e stucke vom teig formen
Im staubzucker walzen und
Sagt die zauberworter
Simsalbimbamba saladu saladim

Auf ein gefettetes backblech legen und
Bei zweihundert grad fur funfzehn minuten backen und
Keine eier

Bei zweihundert grad fur funfzehn minuten backen und
Keine eier

    General CommentIt is a recipe in german, using references to "the eggs (or balls) of satan".

    To me, it is a test.
    Imagine someone listening to this song for the first time, and thinking "ohh these guys sing about satan and stuff in german, probably leading some nazi revolution" and they are immediately turned off, and label tool as "satan worshipping nazis" or something.
    The said person would have failed the test.
    This song to me, tests a persons ability to thnk for themselves, and to think without blindly judging something.

    General CommentI read the translation, and I think its probably saying how ridiculous Hitlers plans were. How can you have a recipe without eggs? it doesnt work. Well, give me credit here I thought of this while I was stoned.

    General CommentI like Makoe's theory.

    I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it was just a recipe. Good to know Maynard has a sense of humor.

    Lyric CorrectionWhile I appreciate the translation, I have to say this: These are not the correct words to the song! The lyrics for 'Die Eier von Satan' are in German, and this is a translation for those words. I would like to see the actual German words for the song, and optionally followed by the translation.

    General CommentLook...guys. Can't someone make a joke without someone over-interpreting it? Die Eier von Satin is about Hash Cookies. The reason they 're referred to as eggs is because they're somewhat spheroid, or shaped like an egg. The humor is derived from the fact that even though they are called "The eggs of Satan" they have no eggs in them. Additional humor is derived from the fact that most of Tool's audience don't know German. Therefore, due to the tone of voice and the fact that it's in German, it sounds kind of "Nazi", so to speak. Images like these are obviously conjured up from seeing footage of Hitler speeches, etc. When one finds out the lyrics are about making cookies "with drugs in them, hence the Satan reference", the joke comes to fruition.

    It's as simple as that. I thought it was rather funny. Gee, what is this crazy German lyric about....oh...Cookies! Who woulda thunk!

    My InterpretationFrom not reading the lyrics and listening to the song i though it was 1930's nazi propaganda. Then what i found out the actual lyrics to songs i felt a little played with, but that's the best thing about it. The song is trying to throw your ignorance in front of your face.

    General CommentThis is the perfect example of what Tool means and why it shouldn't be a mainstream band, this song is asking us to think for ourselves and not take things at face value. aka German = Satanism
    there just cookies man

    General Commenti think this song is one big joke. I think they realise that Germans have the best language for saying evil shit even if its just a stupid recipe. None of that "non-conformist" -vs- "Conformist" bullshit. HAVE YOU HEARD SOMEONE SPEEK GERMAN LATELY, its awsome. Tool obviously know that, and they obviously know people well try and think of stupid meanings for the song when all it is, is something uni psyche students do in there spare time in order to see peoples reacations. (which is actually quite fun, you should try it) :)

    General Commentoh yeah on the whole non-conformist thing,
    dont you non-conformist realise that your just conforming to the non-conformist. Or didnt you know that conforming is a natural reaction to group situations.
    DUH!!!!
