Tool | Reviewer: Hayden | 8/2/09
this song like any other of tools songs has a deep meaning. You can never exactly tell what Maynard means without properly asking him. Their music videos are a reflection of his words through a psychological visual journey. I myself tend to look more into Tools music than the meaning of the lyrics and what the band is trying to achieve with their sound, it is a tough journey of listening to hundreds of tool songs but i am beginning to understand.
I don't think so... | Reviewer: jeffS-REPLY | 6/23/09
Yes, I listen Dream Theater. That's true that Portnoy is better progressive drummer. And Petrucci is way better guitar player, not talking about bass player, Myung vs. Chancellor.
Dream Theater is full of progressivity. Tool is about Alternative, more than progressive. And yes, Tool fans think it's nice that Carey changes time signature 3 times but now you mentioned Portnoy changes 44 times. That might be true. But if you listen their actual playing, Carey is hell more creative drummer, than Portnoy. Portnoy thinks more about time signatures, Carey thinks more his playing. There are so many little thinks on Tool songs you need to remember. Dream Theater's songs are just very fucking long, everything keep changing there all the time.
I prefer Tool way better, because of it's simplicity walking in a hand of creative and impressed music and playing. Tool can play these songs in a gig very well. Dream Theater needs to concentrate too much their playing that they are not so good live players.
I don't say Tool beats Dream Theater with the skills of their playing. I'm saying, Tool is more creative, and speakable (talking about lyrics).
My take... | Reviewer: JF | 6/20/09
I am a LaVeyen satanist. I'm not disagreeing with anyone nor the opposite. I personally take it as the common fall of religion. To ME Most people involved in the Occult are ex-Christians who's god didn't answer or fulfill their specific needs so they turned to either something that would or something that could trick their psyche into believing. This is the progression, Popular religion then the occult then it can branch to either ignorance science or "renewed faith"
suggestion | Reviewer: jeffS | 5/29/09
I suggest you try Dream Theater next if you're into the whole progression, drum patterns thing and singers with good vocal range. Mike Portnoy is the best progressive drummer 12 years in a row according to modern drummer magazine (danny cary is in the same category). LaBrie has a better vocal range and hits the notes perfectly (at least in the albums, read the whole poisoning & vocal cord story for bad performances), Petrucci is a much better guitar player (he toured with Steve Vai and Satriani as part of G3). Myung is hundred times the bass player Chancellor is. Rudess is one of the greatest keyboard players you can ever listen. But music is very complicated. You can see 44 different time signatures in a single song. Many Tool fans I know, find it amazing when danny cary changes 3 time signatures in a song. So get ready for a wild ride.
Please fix the lyrics near the end. | Reviewer: Sam | 5/11/09
By thinking the ending is
Between supposed brothers
Between supposed lovers
You show you have no grasp of the meaning of this song, whatsoever. Beyond what the song sounds like, the lyrics are clearly lovers twice. This song in no way mentions any kind of brotherly love. Please fix your lyrics.
Interesting.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/4/09
I think ONE of the layers Maynard's trying to convey here, is how we can never find God or the meaning to life, until we can stop squabbling between every person and every nation, "I know the peices fit" could be saying that he believes the world can work together and doesn't need to war

communication is what brought 2 people into love, and the fighting which is another form of communication is what made it fall apart. Since it has fallen apart and he watched it happen, he knows communication can bring it back together. However they fight, neither giving in, making them blind to finding an agreement between them. So they fight and fight till their initial reason for dating is questioned. When it is questioned there is a cold silence between them, as one feels screwed over he loses loss of compassion for her and is hurt. thus more silence is brought because he is hurt. SO now there is a world of trouble and the only way to solve the issue is communicate properly.
babel tower | Reviewer: yas | 3/4/09
I think this song is about the Bible too... I believe he is refering to the Babel tower... and the beginning of the languages... as a punishment for our godlike behaviour... so... i guess we must re discover that thing that united us so we can be like gods again...
I love this song | Reviewer: Kris | 2/23/09
Tool is one of the best bands ive ever heard,and they just rock!
Their songs are so good...right now i'm trying to learn Vicarious to play on the guitar,it's pretty hard XD
But thier songs do have alot of meanings,and like the anonymous guy said,this song sounds like its meaning that we are becoming unsociable :)
My meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/09
For me this song suggests that people are becoming increasingly dissassociative with each other and find it easier to fight each other than to get along with each other. And if it doesn't stop soon the whole world's gonna crumble (metaphorically) and there's not gonna be anything left, so learn to get on better.
its whatever you want it to be | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/30/09
tool is an extraordinary band...this song probably has multiple meanings and the probably meant for it to be that way. if it does have one meaning it seems like a relationship between 2 ppl falling apart...as for the bible concept...pretty much nonsense lol. but w/e it can have multiple meanings thats the beauty of tool. he knows "the pieces fit"(the relationship worked) because at one time they did.
my opinion on the song | Reviewer: travis | 1/29/09
i think that this song is about the story in the bible. about the tower of babel. where everyone in the town were lezbians or gay dudes. and god destroyed the tower and made all of them speak different languages. in the song he talks about to lovers to me prolly lezbians and he says the light that that fueled our fire has burned a hole between us so. to me sayin that we loved each other because of how they bonded by talkin to each other. but now they cant understand each other cause there speaking different languages. and the pieces fitting to me is about the tower. and there doomed to crumble unless the strengthen there communication. sayin they need to learn some way to communicate and strengthen it. but thats just what i think.
Awesome | Reviewer: Freezer | 1/27/09
When I listen to this song can get two meanings out of it. The first were the hardships that Tool as a band went through while making the album Lateralus. The album, although amazing, almost created a schism within the band itself. Also this song tells, at least to me, about the world today. There was a time before where everything was so simple, be it your younger years or just years past. Today life is like a living hell. . .but there was a time when the pieces fit. . .and I watched them fall away my friends.
elysium | Reviewer: cut&paste | 1/16/09
im taken to an alternate realm listenin to the rythmic progression of adam jones' riff work, truly amazin, nothin like it, danny cary's drum patterns is complex and hypnotic,it controls the motion of neck and head, justin chancellor's base cresendo is unlike any other,conveyin a sense of unity, mynard's voice, a truly spectacular intrument in its own rite. what a truly amazin band,unlike any other. im blessed to discover them jus a mere 3 years ago. NO other band has made such an impression.
i remember listening to lateralus for the first time, tokin bong, placin myself in that vulnerable pisition of open mindedness. parabol to parabola blew me away, what the fuck! this cant be human! these guys are extraordinary! no band has ever had such an impact on me before. the greatest band on the planet,and u can challenge me on that subjective opinion.
i must see them live ere my time expires...
what its worth | Reviewer: Allen | 12/13/08
The beautiful thing about a lot of tools songs like this is that you can listen to the lyrics and think about them and draw whatever meaning applies to your life, and you can gain insight from them. Who cares what it was meant to say, how to you interpret it?
