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.

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.
ha... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/16/08

To Answer All Drug Questions . . . | Reviewer: AsylumKnight | 11/22/08
You guys and gals must understand you are both right and wrong. The song is obviously about consiousness expansion, regardless of what level you see it as, however, the real concept that humans should understand is that our entire reality is based on what we are told and "believe". This song has very much to do with drugs, just not inducing them. The war on drugs, like the war on terror and many other fictional theatres of society are just there to water down the true perception of this reality. The ones who run the world as a whole understand this and want to horde the knowledge for themselves. Expand. For Fucks Sake.
To Allow oneself | Reviewer: Ruppert | 11/10/08
This is quite a pointless topic to debate on the factor that drugs have anything to do with the song. IT IS TRUE that acid/LSD/Hallucinogens will cause you to FEEL different and as if your lkiving something that cant simply be real but then again if a person differentte the messages that the brain is sending you then it is posible (in theory) that your brain is sending you more of a cryptic message that you could decipher. Im not trying to tell people that they are wrong in there thinking but there are unknown things in the brain that we may never know.
Having said this then think of things this way. Your brain is a storage warehouse of information thats all compacted into small strands of information that must be put back together to make sense. Now when you dream your mind is sending this information around and you catch glimpses of this and put it into pictures your mind can understand. Now with this information in mind it is (in theory) possible to open your "third eye" with a mind altering drug and arrange the information to make a clear layed out picture (your past, your future, ETC) and make your mind go into pyschic abillity which couild benefit/destroy our race. This in mind it is seriously possible to draw the conclusion that the song is not about drugs or a metaphor or anything but its about the bands beleifs that the mind is much more than what we think it is and if we could somehow unlock another 5% of the minds capability (which we only use 15%) wemay be able to unlock the fabled THIRD EYE.
then again this may all be false who knows :D
