Try to shut up already and listen, the song is straight forward - BIG SURPRICE...
Are you all ready?
Are you sure you can handle it?
Don´t you wanna sit down, first?
Let´s dot it.........
Its about wrong choices, the wish of turning around, or even better, to have known the outcome of ones choices, so one could have maked another dicission.
What the background story is, or why the song is made is not f****** important.
Simple - right?
Anyone in the need of a cookie?
What this music is to me. | Reviewer: Heresy | 8/5/12
Many people say that the people reviewing this music are not enjoying the music for its epicness however i find this not to be true. One must allow good music to overtake you however also analyse what the lyrics are saying to us or you specificaly. If you do this it could give you an overwhelming sens of belongiing or a sense of something else for you. this helped me and still does help me get through being singled out and made fun of at school becuase of the fact that I am different in my like of guns and militaria. And to all of you who say people like me are hard and un-fealing because i like gun ur all asses because i am affected deeply by your abrasive comments and tauntes.

Damn right! My friend got a minor shock when he once took my headphones to see, what I was listening to "looking so joyfull and exited".
People, why don't you just let the awesome music overtake you, why do you analyze and interpret instead? Enjoy it, enjoy yourself in it - in ALL of it at the same time! Find your own meaning, which may be absolutely different from the others. Let it suck you in, melt, get exited!
umm | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/3/11
Hey im a tool fan for many years now... a lot of the people posting here preach their interpretation of a song meaning as if its the meaning of life or some shit.
Reminds me of a young guy i saw at uni one day recently, he must have been 18 or so, only young... I saw him listening to music wearing a tool shirt and he looked so happy, so strong, so content. He reminded me of someone who had just found jesus for the first time.
The meaning of the songs seem to constantly evolve for me. Fuck that makes me sound awesome. Im such a wanker.
Straight from the horses mouth | Reviewer: TD | 9/22/11
Although it's unlike him to do so, in an interview Maynard came out and said this song is about his mother, as are most of the songs on 10,000 days (10,000 days is roughly the amount of time his mother survived after a terribly debilitating stroke).
E-motionless | Reviewer: Ergit | 7/28/11
I have been listening to Tool for many years now. I never really cared what others thought or wondered on what Maynard is trying to convey through his lyrics. It pointless to...
We will all see something different. We will all speculate and wonder and convince ourselves to an idea, a theory that becomes an axiom in our head, and then we will preach it as a great revelation.
We are all messiahs, of right or wrong, always tantalized from a greater meaning, we keep searching but fail to find because we are too fucking self-impressed with ourselves.
Emotion is the greatest loss of mankind, happiness, sadness, fear... slaves to the bone we were all made and still are.
Stop preaching to the choir and please,
think with your own head
PS: And by the way Maynard is talking about his mother...throughout the whole album.
Shine on forever
Shine on, benevolent sun

There are many ways to believe in a higher being. Jesus is just one of them. for me, God is energy. Light is energy. The energy of the sun is powerful, it shines down with light and warmth. Tools songs always use metaphor i think so people can interpet the songs the best way for them
meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/23/11
for you who said jesus is just a comfort how can you refute that maynard definetly believes in him i.e. Shine down benevolent son shine on the severed until 2 become 1 LOL..shine down benevolent son shine on the broken until 2 become 1...def not reffering to the sun of our planet bc we very well know its doesnt have the divine ability to make 2 become 1.
Jesus | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/4/11
Maynard believes in God or "Father" as just a greater being and angels his watchers. From Maynard's songs like Parabola it seems as if he also believes in reincarnation. Logicaly the energy of life is aura, which can be seen by a special camera, and when the body dies this is not destroyed. The aura lives on but that is a waist of energy so we must be recycled. I see it as "God" testing us to see if we have gone bad, and if we have I believe we are put here in say a crippled state. I belive in ghosts and I belive that is an after life along with another place in the universe. Maynard draws the best most clear untouched ideas of all religions, and shares it with us by opening our third eye into this reality. Maynard will probably be something special when he leaves his body. He is almost what seems to be recruiting us to something greater when we die. If you are reading this and are Catholic (which is what I used to be), Christian, or any other Jesus freak, this next sentence is important to you. If you listen to Tool or APC or even Puscifer, drop your religoin now, Jesus was just something made to comfort you, but people messed with it making it a demandind mind control device as stated in "Opiate". You need to truly listen to Maynard's words and think for yourself.
Wikipedia reference | Reviewer: Red | 5/11/11
According to Wikipedia... "Drummer Danny Carey stated that 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." (Which can still fit into the interview theory. I think less is better and this song is about, quite simply, wishes. Maynard's just happened to be being with his son.)
putting it to rest | Reviewer: j | 4/20/11
you people are so funny... thinking you know what the song is really about and that everyone else is blind not to see it. i've noticed a huge amount of arrogance from many tool fans which is funny to me. as if you're somehow superior for liking a good band and maybe even understanding it a little better than the next guy. i've been a tool fan since opiate, so don't get me wrong. i don't judge. i just laugh. now:
THIS SONG IS ABOUT MAYNARDS SON.
he said so in an interview. maynard was living the rock star life and there were custody issues because of it. he was living like a king on his mountain in arizona. living the dream, feasting like a sultan, on treasures and flesh. he was turning to the dark side. his kid changed everything for him, lifted him up turned him around. but he almost lost custody. maynards saying he would trade all this materialistic rock star bullshit in a second to be with his son.
some of the lyrics are wrong. but read the lyrics again with his son in mind and it will make perfect sense. until i knew this i never realized how personal and deep this song really was.
of course you should find your own meaning in songs and let them help you in any way, but this is what the song means to maynard.
Re: This will probably piss all of you off... 2/2/11 | Reviewer: Viv | 3/31/11
Wow, I feel exactly the same. I just got on Google to look up the lyrics to see if they were everything I felt, and randomly picked this 'song meaning' site, and out of boredom and curiosity scrolled down. I was looking this song up because it reminds me of the problems I'm going through right now which are exactly what you described. The lyrics are quite a perfect fit, aren't they.
Wha? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/15/11
This song may or may not be a bout religion. Maynard was raised religously with his mother who passed away of cancer, she meant everything to him and tore his beliefs for God... Look at Judas it is a comparison to her. She prayed daily and was taken from him as a boy.
My Apologies. | Reviewer: Jon | 3/13/11
I must apologize to everyone for my last post. I was heavily addicted to Crystal Meth and Cocain at the time of that last comment(January 6th) And I also admit it was very hypocritical of me to judge or throw insults at you guys. We all like Tool right? and A Perfect Circle and whatever each song means to you, it means it to you in a personal sense. I should have explained the meaning that I see it as in a less aggressive way and that was uncalled for on my part. This song just spoke to me at a point in my life when I truly needed it and it fit like a hand fits a glove, I was into sorcery, demonology, intravenous meth addiction and a strong hatred for the world. I understand where you guys are coming from when it comes to religion. There are so many right? If you met someone that you really liked and got to know them would you want a religious experience with them or a relationship? I can tell you about how God and Christ have rescued me from Addictions, turned my life around and become the greatest friend I could ever ask for but the only way you would believe it is if you experience it as well. It's simple too, all you have to do is ask Jesus Christ to reveal himself to you in the comforts of your own home. You don't have to be good enough or act a certain way, you can come as you are, bring it all to Jesus and he'll change your life Forever.
Materialism | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/13/11
The song seems to be pretty straight forward, materialism counts for nothing if you can't have/be with the one you love. He also seems to be blaming his love of materialism on malevolent forces, weather the, 'legion,' he is referring to is his inner demons or ones that he perceives to be real is anyones guess. Btw the reference to demons being referred to as, 'legion,' in the bible is in Mark5:9, Mark5:15, Luke8:30 and Luke 8:36, and I am sure Maynard made the connection.
