"You Lied (Peach cover)" as written by and Justin Gunner/durling Oaks Simon/chancellor....
Setting sun can't shine, now you're gone
Inside sleeping, my heart beating
You know that you tried to hide it
Couldn't you have said what you meant? Oh

Time heals, time congeals around us
Endless hours of wasted moments
Understanding, not demanding
Your eyes tell what you feel inside

Setting sun can't shine, now you're gone
Inside sleeping, my heart beating
You know that you tried to hide it
Shouldn't you have said what you meant?

You lied!

    I think it is about, being in an intimate relationship, (whether sexual or non-sexual) with someone who knows they are dying, but they didn't tell you they were dying. They said everything was fine. Now, you've become very attached to this person who's insides are sleeping, (dead) and are in the "anger" stage of mourning...ponder that. The lyrics just don't make sense, any other way, at least to me.

    Song MeaningThis is one of very few Tool songs that has no in depth, or hidden meanings. Still it is one of ten that id take with me to the deserted island. It is stunningly beautiful on every level. I never thought that it would become so very personal. Yet I have never in my 47 years, 2 marriages, and only god knows how many boyfriends, have I been so desperately in love with the man that does the perfect things, says the perfect things, buys the best gifts, but it is a complete lie. I am nothing more to him than the help, he cringes at my touch, hasnt kissed me with passion in a year. Im in the middle of packing my things, and wondering if I could have done something different, because he really did love me for a long time. He doesnt want me to leave. but..his eyes tell what he feels inside.....he lied.....

    General CommentI've heard the Peach orignal, it's not as good as the Tool version on Salival. That is something you don't get very often, a cover being better than the orignal, but it is Tool after all!

    General Comment... the bassist for tool is Justin Chancellor, not Danny Carey, danny plays the drums... but you are right about the bassist being in peach. I really dont see why you lied is in the tool section and not the peach, as well as no quarter, these are both covers.

    General CommentThe lyrics for No Quarter are slightly different than the Led Zeppelin version, so it should be here.

    General CommentIt's not Merkaba. Salival had tons of mistakes in the booklet when it was released. My copy says the same thing. It's like the "Lateralis" (Lateralus) fiasco. Some were printed with misspellings and messed up info when they were first printed. You probably got one of them as well.

    General CommentThis song is performed much better by tool. Really the only problem with the Peach version is that Peach's singer wasn't that great. Definatley not in the same league as Maynard. Maynard's voice really does a lot with this song.

    General CommentI love the guitar part. SO PRETTY! I wish I could find the Peach version :(

    I think it's about being in love with someone...and finding out after they leave that all they did was lie to you...and you still miss them.
