"Hush" as written by Daniel Carey, Adam Jones, Paul D'amour and Maynard James Keenan....
Fuck You

I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm not serious
I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm not serious

Fuck yourself
Fuck yourself
You piece of shit
Why don't you just go
Kill yourself?

I said
I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm not serious
I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm just kidding, yeah

People tell me what to say
What to think and what to play
I said, people tell me what to say
What to think and what to play

I say
Fuck yourself
Fuck yourself
You piece of shit
Why don't you just go
Kill yourself?

I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm not serious
I can't say what I want to
Even if I'm just kidding

Fuck yourself
Go fuck yourself
You piece of shit
Why don't you go fuck yourself?

People tell me what to say
What to think and what to play
I said, people tell me what to say
What to think and what to play

Just kidding
Just kidding
Just kidding

    General Commenti see this song two ways.
    one is that its a passive aggressive song about censorship
    the second and more likely given tools other songs is that it is talking about how we are molded to avoid our "shadow selves" (see carl jung). As children we are taught and society reinforces certain taboos and beliefs. even joking about these taboos is considered odd behavior and forces that side of us into the shadowich . facing and accepting these thoughts and feelings as part of us is key to growth. he is being himself and saying he is not going to do what society says because just because its taboo. he instead embraces that side and shows some passive agressivness by saying something offensive. the irony i think is he is just kidding and hes not being sarcastic. the point is to show others that being uncomfortable about just the words not the intent is ridiculous. for example i could say i don't like so and so and in my heart want to kill them but thats socially acceptable to actually not like someone or even hate someone but oddly enough people are more put off by a joke or humor that is in "bad taste".
