Tool – 10,000 Days (Wings Pt. 2) Lyrics 6 years ago
@[KamikazeSkies:2638]

Are you psychic? How do you know this? You seem to be very certain that you KNOW who is and who isn't right.

Do you know the dolphin? Do you call him at home? DO YOU HAVE A DORSAL FIN???

This song sounds like a tribute to his mother I would say, but a mockery of religion?

"Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended". Sorry but that doesn't sound like mockery to me.

In my opinion, he is suggesting that if there really is a heaven, if any person deserves to be there, it's her.

He wouldn't be exactly "guiding her safely on her way" if he were mocking the heavens, now would he lol?

But I could be wrong.

A Perfect Circle – Orestes Lyrics 6 years ago
Years ago I took this song too literally. I assumed that the umbilical residue was from a morbid mothers eyes, with an awful case of the baby blues lol. Now after many years of reading and developing a love for history, I realize that I was in fact very wrong. Lol. Only 4 years passes since my old posts and I realize how much I have grown, mentally and emotionally. The funny thing is, the more that I learn in this physical world, the easier it is for me to believe in what I cannot see. The only thing that has remained constant over the past 4 years or so, is tool. I listen almost religiously. Yet, I still find myself wanting more, still looking for answers.

A Perfect Circle – Thomas Lyrics 11 years ago
omg, i cant believe ppl actually think that its religion that keeps us civilized and instils us with this "so called" moral that religion supossedly offers... perhaps ppl need to do some research and understand just how many wars and deaths religion has caused... Humans are born with a conscience; meaning we have reason, and understand right from wrong. we dont need religion to set these guidelines for us... sheesh, ur almost as bad as those religious nuts out there... i hope u have learned something since ur post in 2004 lol... you either eliminate religion or you dont... you cant tell ppl to stop believing and following, then change ur mind and say "well, religion is useful for keeping ppl in line"...

This is a prime example of the downfall of those who want to reject religious views... stop aplogozing to the bible thumpers... quit worrying about infringing on their opinions... state yours, and state it loud for fuck sake... BTW... i CANNOT see maynard saying "im sorry for putting all of this down" lol... he knows its all horse shit... what does he have to apologize for?...

Religion = FAIL

Tool – Crawl Away Lyrics 11 years ago

Crawled away from me,
Slipped away from me,
Tried to keep a hold,
But there was nothing I could say.

Slid away from me,
Crept away from me,
Tried to keep you down,
But there was nothin I could say,

What you try to say,
Is you don't want to play
What you want,
And what you need,
Don't mean that much to me.
I can see your back is turning if I could I'd stick the knife in.

Crawled away form me,
Slipped away from me,
Tried to keep a hold,
But there was nothin I could say,

Slid away from me,
Drift away from me,
Tried to keep you down,
But there was nothin I could say,

What you tryin to say,
Is you don't want to play,
What you want,
And what you need,
Don't mean that much to me.
I can see your back is turning if I could I'd stick the knife in!

This is Love
This is love
This is my love for you X5
This is my LOVE!

Say you wont go..
Get you in a strangle hold baby,
Can you, can you get away?

What you tryin to say,
Is you don't want to play,
What you want and what you need,
Don't mean a FUCK to me!
I can see your back is turning if I could I'd stick the knife in!

A Perfect Circle – Orestes Lyrics 11 years ago
This song could be about the hostility and anger/stress that one encounters while raising a child... Many often contemplate killing their children. This song is about someone who struggles with this issue and has contemplated killing themselves or their child. One more medicated moment, I dont know but that seems to be the only way to control the hostility (towards the child).... get high to keep the dark side at bay...

Tool – Eulogy Lyrics 11 years ago
at least athiests (and those of us who believe in more than a man in the clouds) research and develope ideas such as big bang and evolution to understand where we came from. If u believe anything the bible says then u basically are just as stupid as those who actually go to church. And the number one thing that pisses me off about ppl who "believe" is the fact that they always dismiss reality and actuality, just because the bible says so. Nothing can test their faith bull crap. "the grudge" is another good song for those who have a hard time accepting faith as an answer. I know there is more to life then following a load of garbage in the bible.... im glad im not wasting the little time i have here on this planet.

Tool – Schism Lyrics 11 years ago
Here is my THEORY... of course the song has obvious religious undertones such as the separation of the church and some think of relationship issuea... However, I believe the song has alot to do with sacred geometry.

"The poetry that comes from the squaring off in between, and the circling is worth it, finding beauty in the dissonance."

When drawing an approximate logarithmic spiral, some use a method of using squares (squaring off) to draw the angles (circling). What I think they are saying is that they want us to discover the same wonders of the universe that they all have studied... the circling (studying) is worth it. Although we all grow and change, we remain the same, just like a fibonacci spiral. TOOL obviously has a passion for sacred geometry. This spiral seems to be a reoccuring theme throughout the entire lateralus album (mainly in the song lateralus; "Swing on the spiral"). The entire song (instrumentals and vocals) is set to a specific fibonacci sequence. Amazing. But wait, there is more.


Essentially, it is one huge puzzle for us all to solve, and I spend many nights doing my research LOL. When all of the lateralus songs are played in a specific fibonacci sequence all the songs fit together and flow perfectly. I wont tell you the numbers because that would ruin TOOLs objective; to make us think.

Suppossedly, (the following is only what I have heard, do not take this part too literal; however, it would not surprise me one single bit if it is absolutely true) if you put songs in fib. order, then, split triad down the middle and reverse the second half, then superimpose it onto the first half, then it plays beatufilly up until schism. This is when it all is suppossed to fall down, until the rift starts then it flows properly again. How fucking incredible is a perfectly symmetrical album. Effin genious all these ppl are.

Just a thought :)

Tool – Jimmy Lyrics 11 years ago
What I'm going to add may or may not be relevant to Maynard's concept; however, it is still interesting.

Eleven is the positioning of the Aquarius within the zodiac, which represents a new age. Here me out, before "Jesus", we were in the age of the Torus which Moses represented. After that (presently) is Picies which Jesus represents. 2012 will be the BEGINNING of the shift of consciousness into the age of Aquarius (which will be in 2150) when ppl will stop believing in God, start thinking as one. Right now we (I shouldnt say we, because I dont follow however, you get my point) are all blindly following the shepherd.... We need to understand that the human mind is capable of absolutely anything. Perhaps life on earth is a test... Who knows, nobody does.... But I do know that there are many wonders in the universe, to think that there is something better after we die is not silly; however, thinking that there is a man waiting at a set of pearly gates anticipating your fate...is.

In my opinion, when eleven comes around.... either when we die or to those privileged enough to live during the age of Aquarius, we will be able to connect again with those who we lived our human lives with. The energy we hold is indestructible. Even when we are dreaming, our consciousness is separated from our bodies. Our bodies actually could be a barrier, I'm not sure.

Religion holds so many restrictions on us right now. For example, stem cell research. Stem cells could have helped his mother, but she was unfortunate and lived in a time where stem cells research is not allowed because of religious folk.

I have so many theories, but little time to explain, just thought I would give someone who appreciates this info, something to research.

"Swing On The Spiral Of Our Divinity".... Forget Dogma... who says GOD is better than us humans? Think for yourself!!!!!

Tool – Forty Six & 2 Lyrics 12 years ago
sure, maynard doesnt hold the answers; however, he doesnt believe in blindly following the rediculous nonsense of religion and wasting ur life for some make believe dogmatic law... he just knows there is more to life then what we r living right now and he is spreading the word.

i dont believe in God.
i wish i had an answer to life, but i dont.
i believe in things like energy and logarythmic spirals... but it doesnt consume my life.
i learn new things every single day... i take whats given to me without question and do whatever i need to do to get through.... no matter what...
but i dont dwell...
this music is so inspiring and it soothes my soul... it just teaches you to make ur own decisions, and wisely... dont submit to dogma and live life to the fullest... "ride the spiral till the end, we may just go where no one's been "

Tool – Disgustipated Lyrics 12 years ago
This song shows how easily as humans we r to blindly follow the words of a sheppard such as a pastor no matter how rediculous the words are. The angle came in a dream and told him of the carrot harvesting, let the rabbit wear glasses, then the pastor believes he understands this dream and preaches to us how we should save the carrots. Its just another anaolgy of how we r sheep and need to realize that life has a natural course whther its good or bad is irrelvant... What's bad to one person is normal to another. We need to realize that there is no dogmatic law, we need to do whatever we need to do to survive... This song is versatile and means different things to different ppl... But pls, don't just make a conclusion without thoroughly interpretin the song... It is absolutley not about animal liberation... Death and hunting is natural. Try to understand the "circle of life". And ppl... Start to question things more... Oh and BTW, I DON'T believe spoonfeeding enlightenment to ppl is the way to do it... Ppl need to contemplate things and discover things on their own... Then they will truly see...

Tool – Swamp Song Lyrics 12 years ago
Perhaps we all just have a guilty concience, or we are all vein enough to belive this song is actually about us...

either way...

we r all lost and we r searching for an answer, many of us find this answer within the lyrics of their music.

TOOL can only expect us to make highly objective statements about their complex lyrics. If this is the case, then Maynard needs to suck it up; take the good with the bad.

Tool – Jimmy Lyrics 12 years ago
I agree that there may have been a tragedy as a child (I believe that his mother suffered a stroke and ended up in a wheel chair when he was eleven and she died ten thousand days later). However, I truly belive this song is about us as humans reaching a new level of conciousness... in regards to our souls or psycoholigical "beings". Eleven is the position of the aquarious within the zodiac, a representation of the next age humans will enter in 2150 (starting in 2012 as the shift in conciousness; allowing us to truly see humans capailities and we will learn to live as one mind). He states "eleven has been and will be waiting, defending his light and wondering where the hell have I been, sleeping lost and numb" this means that eleven is waiting to happen, today in our human form we are limited (as humans we are "sleeping lost and numb", when we die our bodies may decompose but we still have astral bodies, therefore he will be able to reunite with his mother in their new state of being. We will learn how to live as one mind and experience astral form of being in the future.
