Tool – Jambi Lyrics 10 years ago
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jambi_(Tool_song)

Jambi" is a song by American progressive metal band Tool. The song is released as a single and the second track from their fourth studio album 10,000 Days. It was made officially available for radio airplay on February 12, 2007.[1][2] Adam Jones uses a talk box effect during the guitar solo.[3]

The song is in 9/8 time, except for the guitar solo where the rhythm is temporarily changed to 6/4 before going back to 9/8.

It primarily refers to the iambic meter used in the lyrics of the song as 'jambi' means 'iamb' in Finnish.[4]

Drummer Danny Carey stated when bassist Justin Chancellor played the bass track of the song, it instantly reminded him of the children's television program Pee-wee's Playhouse, then singer Maynard James Keenan thought of the genie "Jambi" and had the idea to make the song's theme about making wishes

Tool – Forty Six & 2 Lyrics 10 years ago
Did anyone every stop to think that Maynards twisted mind is so twisted that he would write a simple song so that everyone would misinterpret it?
Has anyone ever thought that its about football?
Well its not..it would be funny if it were so simple....
But again someone says that this 0berones is correct...
In an interview where Danny Carey spoke with a reporter from Slamm magazine it states:

SLAMM: You mentioned the importance of evolution as it relates to the
band. "Forty-six & 2" off the new album seems to address this theme,
correct? And what does "Forty-six & 2" mean?

Danny: "Forty-six & 2" is a DNA chromosome count. And in the song we
use it as a metaphor for evolution and change. Right now, humans have
forty-four plus two, and supposedly the next step in our evolution
will be the addition of a couple more chromosomes. -end-

I find this amusing that there are so many comments about tool lyrics...
because Danny also stated that:

Danny: In our method of composing, Maynard is singing in the room
with us, but he's not really singing words. The words are an
afterthought. And the words and lyrics are about 90% Maynard's
interpretation. We don't place that much significance on them. We want
people to interpret the music and get their own inspiration out of it.
That's what we hope for, anyway. That's why we don't put the words in
the record, either, because people will latch onto them heavily. If
words were so important, compared to the light and energy that is
going on the stage, then people would be selling out spoken word
shows. Which they aren't. The music is what the emphasis is on in our
band.
