you know what? it's a song. with a quote. and a bunch of opinions. if you don't like it, then listening to it seems pointless. and it's ok not to like the song. but you people just kinda start a mini war over it. people just need to freaking relax :|
umm....hmmm..... | Reviewer: bob | 3/10/09
this song IS ABOUT ACID....anybody that has ever done acid will tell you that there IS a shared consciousness between you and those that you are doing it with....also you are able to pick up HIGHLY on the thoughts of others around you...hence "Prying open my THIRD EYE" come on people....dont be stupid...this song is about an acid trip....the anonymous guy is right...but so are the other guys with the slipping into psychosis off of acid....its a poison to your brain and it does have adverse effects.... if you want to experience something close but with less harm...i suggest shrooms....the third eye isn't as strong and it wont push the ones close to the edge over. usually the ones that do go over the edge with acid were already unstable and were not mentally strong enough to handle the effects of LSD...it takes a strong mind to do so
take off, eh? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/6/09
I'm going to have to agree with the idea that artists don't intend for you to interpret their music in any one specific way. Obviously, if this were the case they would publish some type of book to the public explaining their work. But do they? No. Plain and simple.
As for acid, it's not right for everyone. Some people may be unknowingly mentally unstable and acid can push them over the edge.
And, to follow suit, Fuck off.
Wow... | Reviewer: unregistered | 2/26/09
Allow me to clear things up here. The two individuals here who think you need to drop acid/use drugs to actually listen to music/Tool, you're both fucking morons. I've listened to Tool since I was 13, and didn't start smoking pot until I was 16. I've enjoyed them all 7 years I've listened to them, each to the same degree regardless of sobriety or intoxication. Yes, it's an experience and an enhancer, but I derived the same feelings and meanings from this song and many others in any state of mind.
Now, to those in here that believe LSD is the catalyst that causes individuals to be institutionalized, allow me to clarify your blindly typed opinions. I take acid once a week, and have done so for about 7 months. I dose the same amount each time, and enjoy my trip each time. IF I'm dropping 3 hits every week and have been doing so for over half a year, wouldn't I begin to destabilize if your stories/theories were true? I'm not jumping out of windows, murdering people, taking off my clothes and running around on my hands. I'm absolutely fine. It's only as harmful as you allow it to be or want people to believe.
Now, this song is one of Tool's best, it's about Tim Leary's theory that LSD expands the mind and helps one to see through the shroud should they question authority.
Now, kindly shut the fuck up.

Opinion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/20/09
Drugs are a means to forcibly achieve an understanding and state of mind without any effort by the user minus the actual ingesting. While considering that, think about this: What point is a race instantly and easily won? Achieving a heighten state of mind through drugs negates the true and very important process involved in achieving enlightenment on your own. Drugs give a glimpse at the end result... but if enlightenment is your true goal... then take those 20 years or so it will require you to get back to that level without taking drugs... otherwise you miss the point.
Thank you Jake | Reviewer: Lee | 2/19/09
I'm really having to agree with Jake on this one. First of all, you should be thrown in a mental institute for trying to tell people that it is the only way to understand the songs... I for one have listened to Tool on many different drugs, including acid (and let me tell you, I'm glad that I'm off of ALL drugs. It took me over 5 years to get ,quote end quote, normal again) and I still do not understand what the hell he is talking about half of the time. The lyrics of MOST songs ever written are to be for YOUR OWN interpretation. So please, fuck off you stupid asshole...
anonymous can fuck off. | Reviewer: Jake | 2/10/09
In response to reviewer anonymous and his encouraging of everyone to take ACID and his fucking hippy bullshit about "weed being used to heal" please go back to your fucking hole and stay there. I have no problem with people who take drugs, but lying about them and bullshitting to push your pathetic understanding of this song pisses me off.
ACID has adverse psychological effects and can induce psychosis and other mental disorders, side effects can last a life time, Weed although does have healing properties, the same way alcohol can clean wounds and red wine is good for you, but that doesnt mean it's not harmful in other ways. but that does not suggest you go out and drink a half bottle of scotch.
I have 2 school friends who smoked copious amounts of weed and took LSD, one is in and out of mental hospitals and the other is a hermit scared to go outside.
Telling people the can't understand this song unless they take acid proves you have ZERO understanding of TOOL and this song.
all right... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/09
all right kids...for yall that evidently dont follow tool the way they want u to.. u should try takin a couple of hits of acid and then listening to their music as you are enhanced in your mind.. especially this song, then and only then will u understand what their songs fully mean..and i guarantee that once u realize what u've been listening to and singing along with, ur mind will be unlocked to so many different meanings and views in life as a whole. and the songs will probably freak the hell out of u. and its not cause acid messes u up..it doesn't do that, it enhances things once forgotten in ur mind that u do not accept in ur normal state of mind but instead when u are enhanced u accept things for what they are and not what ur mind wants them to be......UNTIL YOU DO THIS... u will NOT understand 98% of all current music being played today, and u will be illiterate to their meanings and messages because they are so complicated in meaning and thought which is in turn the very same reason ur normal state of mind will not appeal or hear these. these songs are meant to confuse u dumbasses so that u DONT KNOW THE MEANING and u keep listening just cuz u like the way the music sounds instead of the dark poetry that it is written in. take my advice and stop listening to tool until u do it as ur mind is opened up by its needed enhancement of thought thru acid......until u do this u are going to continually make a fucking fool of urself in these blogs to the ppl that are able to "SEE" the songs..... good luck you un-knowledgeable, unlearned, simple minded, unseeing, proud idiots.
drugs | Reviewer: A.T.M. | 1/18/09
I'm pretty sure that by third eye he means the pineal gland and using DMT to see inside of the mind and realizing that life isn't what it seems to be.
And will you idiots quit arguing over what a song means, everyone percieves music differently, there is no right or wrong answers, so I hope you read this before you make an ass of yourself.
chasing the trail of smoke and reason | Reviewer: cut&paste | 1/9/09
im sittin here with al ur opinions and idealistic views considered like a bag of marbles resting in the palm of my hand and with this in mind the only point that prominently reveals itself in our conclusions regardin songs like this, particularly from the likes of tool, is that we fail to draw a universal understanding, or at least a logical theory that we could possibly all agree on.
so, that being said it is obvious that the intended meaning of this song wil always be a highly debatable subject, which alone makes it worth the debate.i suppose being the indiviuals we are meant to portray makes such a notion irrational, or even wayward, to comprehend. but thats not a bad thing.
knowledge is power, the more we educate ourselves the more transparent things may become. i like to keep this in mind when reviewing ur opinions because once you allow the mind to stretch to a novel idea, it wil never again return to its former dimension. so i believe it is paramount to maintain an open prospective when discussing topics of such an enigmatic nature.
afteral, the eye wil only see what the mind is willing to comprehend...
P.S- i apologise if i may offend any1 with my particularly bad spellin
Responce to 'Ryan' | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/7/09
Thanks, I know where the third eye is. It is proven that humans don't use all of their brains, and it is the only part of the body that isn't lost due to lack of use. The Chakras are only mildly applicaple to 'reality' because not many people know their true power and how to harness it. Amazing things are done when one knows how to open the chakras. Could this possibly be how 'masters' levitate, walk on water, exist in two places at once, materialize anything out of nothing....
It's amazing what the human race has forgotten about over generations. It's not so much learning, its just remembering what was forgotten.
10% of the brain | Reviewer: Ryan | 12/22/08
This is patently false what anonymous wrote on 12/15/08, we all use 100% of our brains. Anything we don't use is pruned away. If you don't use it, you lose it.
The "Chakras" are phenomenal representations from an era prior to empirical neuroscience. Thus they are only mildly applicable to reality. The "third eye" correlates best with the prefrontal cortices which inhibit the remainder of the brain in planning/forethought and are situated directly behind the forehead/above the eyes.
Such simple minded children | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/15/08
If only people would do some research on the 'chakra' system and spiritual evolution before posting their beliefs on such deep songs.
The third eye, being the 6th seal makes up a third of the upper part of consciousness connected to each and everyone's 'lord' or soul. The bottom 3 'chakras' or seals are what 90% of the people on earth live in. All of which are connected to the body. The 4th seal is the heart and makes up the 'god' or mind portion of consciousness. Prying open your third symbolizes the expansion of the 'soul' consciousness, and is part of 'intuition'. The top 4 chakras are responsible for 90% of the brains' capacity, this is why the 'average' human uses only 10% of their brain; they still live in the lower 3 seals.
Do your research if you are going to indulge in such deep music for more than simple entertainment.
