To the jesus lover below.Do you have any idea what a stupid twat you sound like.Yes people take drugs and expand their consciousness and become gods effectually and they became greater than you because the aren't in that instance a slave to an idea,as you have became adopting a religion/faith/brain washing dogma.Do be proud of your slavery.You are a sheep,one of the flock you are nothing special,you everything one should avoid in life.You disrespect your own humanness.Government,money,god are all ideas easily corrupted.

Jesus belief if but one culture's expression of knowing God, and there are many other routes to take to God as well, which are just as valid. Have some respect for other's path of spirituality, what you do will not work for everyone. (To the judgemental Tool below)
About Third Eye and Bill Hicks | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/29/13
Since there are comments by late stand up comic Bill Hicks who was a long time friend and front man for Tool relating to drugs I am just adding this comment, it's not really a review. To me the "Third Eye" of a person is supposedly opened with drugs, such as peyote, LSD, even pot according to the many people who rely on drugs for inspiration. I, myself having been there and done that have long since moved on to letting my "Third Eye" be opened by the Holy Spirit, God, through Jesus Christ. I have a response to Bill Hicks whose last words related to "TRUTH" (not here, you'll have to look that up on Wikipedia) anyway when he says
"See, I think drugs have done some *good* things for us, I really do. And if you don’t believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a Favor: go home tonight and take all your albums, all your tapes, and all your cd’s and burn em’. 'Cause you know what? The musicians who’ve made all that great music that’s enhanced your lives throughout the years...
Rrrrrrrrrrrrreal ------ high on drugs."
To this I say, yeah I used to be into Zepplin, Stones, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and so many other druggies music, but that music did not make any kind of impact on my life. I don't know if TOOL is into drugs, were ever or whatever.
The music that truly did and does and will forever have an impact on my life are by musicians who perhaps may have used drugs in the past (no unlike myself) but who have been reborn into the Holy Spirit and whose music is Christ centered. Yes, Jesus Christ, as in GOD. These bands like Third Day, tobyMac, DC Talk, Flyleaf, Switchfoot, Skillet, Matt Redman and so many others, some who have even won the AMERICAN IDOL title award or came close to winning it like Jordon Sparks, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood and Mandisa...so so many and none on drugs..not anymore, only high on (ironically) TRUTH.
Look what I found | Reviewer: mrcold | 5/11/13
Currently enjoying my first DMT experience. I was listening to random music, and this song comes on. Everything came together at once.
They came here to watch me play.
Prying open my third eye.
What this song is really about. | Reviewer: Chris | 4/30/13
This song is, simply put, about whatever you think it is about. I grow tired of hearing fans try to decipher and cherry pick the meaning out of every line of every verse. Who cares what the song means to the artist(s) himself? It matters what the song means to you personally. If you just try to delve into the writers state of mind and try to figure out his meaning and what he was thinking during the writing process of the song, then Tool really isn't for you.
I'm not trying to be harsh, here. I'm really not. But trying to pondering what a writers work and saying that you know exactly the writers though process is about is no different that taking your own views on religion and attempting to stuff them down other people's throats and trying to pass it on as an original idea.

I also think this song is about spirituality but a forced spiritual awakening due to drugs rather than a natural one, hence "prying open my third eye" and the Bill Hicks narration at the start.
AMAZING song, and am hoping they play in in concert in two weeks time!
Drugs and bill hicks | Reviewer: Ben | 4/20/13
The song is literally about Bill Hicks and his philosophies regarding psychedelic drug use, which he was a strong proponent of. This isn't about relationships the way other Tool songs like Schism are. This song is literally about taking acid, shrooms, DMT, all of that stuff.
Bro. | Reviewer: Noah | 4/12/13
1. Not in any way connecting to sex.
Or loving of a being.
It's about opening your mind to the possibilities, and reaching out to the divine.
Third eye is the deepest song I've ever herd. This song was influenced by the spirituality of the band. So glad to see you means opening your third eye with substances such as D M T or L S D, and many more hallucinogens.
wtf are you not on? | Reviewer: ThirdEyeWide | 4/2/13
I think this song is about healing, possibly relationships, sort of like the band has said about some of their other music. "So good to see you, I've missed you so much" can be interpreted several ways, such as missing a friend (Bill Hicks), or a loved one you haven't seen in nearly a lifetime. It could also be a person's shadow, or even God:
Shroud-ing all the ground around me
Is this holy crow above me.
Black as holes within a memory
And blue as our new second sun.
I stick my hand into his shadow
To pull the pieces from the sand.
Which I attempt to reassemble
To see just who I might have been.
I do not recognize the vessel,
But the eyes seem so familiar.
Like phosphorescent desert buttons
Singing one familiar song...
All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. We are all one mind, one consciousness.
In... Out... In... Out... In... Out...
(If you think it's about sex, you're right - but do try to delve a little deeper.)
wtf are you guys on? | Reviewer: jbone | 12/15/12

The real meaning is metaphysical. | Reviewer: Polo | 10/10/12
This song is about meditation and reaching a level of super consciousness. Hence "prying open my third eye". Mind altering drugs are a common vehicle to reaching such levels, a kind of shortcut. Tool says "prying open my third eye, some have called it chasing the serpant. The kundalini serpant. Its a method of inner healing and the overall goal of meditation. Coincidentally the image of the two snakes coiling around a staff which is the symbol for medicine. Its also the symbol for chasing the serpant, This can also be seen in Tools Parabola video at the end.
tool to higher consciousness | Reviewer: Dylan | 9/2/12
My interpretation of this song is someone who is in touch with their spiritual side but can not grasp true ascendancy. He slips into the higher realms and realizes his lifes potential but he can not hold it in everyday life. When he sleeps (or enters trance, w/e) he sees his higher self or that of a loved one. Basically this song connects dreams to reality.
DMT | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/19/12
Obviously a tribute to Bill hicks.
But looking deeper. The third eye is a symbolic element part of philosophies and religion. The third eye is meant to represent the observation of another, more spiritual, realm. One certain "drug" comes to mind when discussing the third eye and the spiritual realm: DMT.
DMT is interesting from a scientific standpoint. All forms of life contain DMT. Including humans. Our bodies release tiny amounts of DMT when we dream. Now comes the interesting part. Right before we die, our body releases a large amount of DMT. This may scientifically explain why people have "near death experiences". The body thinks that it is about to die, and releases DMT. Due to the miracles of modern medicine, people have been brought back with these experiences engraved in their memories. We have literally taken people back from the spiritual realm. This song may link the mind state of Maynard caused by the death of Hicks. Constantly trying to find him again by searching for him within that spiritual realm through DMT. Trying to search for him with this third eye.
The final purpose | Reviewer: Acroma | 6/15/12
I've been listening to TOOL for nearly four years now and always tried to figure out what the songs are about by looking at the lyrics. By now I've come to the conclusion that this is the absolut opposite of what you should do. I guess now I understand how to take the songs. Thanks for illuminating me...now even the songs I didn't really like a lot in the past (like Opiate and Eulogy) become precious, genious pieces of art for me and that makes me really happy...
actually.... | Reviewer: michael | 5/14/12
actually only the pop and hip hop artists are really the only ones who have faded because of drugs. genres such as metal and rock are mostly defined by the inspiration of drugs. did you know that jimmy hendricks used to cut his fore head and put large amounts of acid on the cut put his bandanna on and trip before he played every show and when he came down he couldn't play near as well as when he were on drugs.
