Cold and Ugly Lyrics - Tool

Review The Song (3)



Underneath her skin and jewelry,
hidden in her words and eyes
is a wall that's cold and ugly
and she's scared as hell.
Trembling at the thought of feeling.
Wide awake and keeping distance.
Nothing seems to penetrate her.
Cause she's, she's scared as hell.

I am frightened too
I am frightened, ohh

Trembling at the thought of feeling.
Wide awake and keeping distance.
Nothing seems to penetrate her.
Cause she's, she's scared as hell.

I am frightened too
I am frightened

Wide awake and keeping distance from my soul.
Wide awake and keeping distance from my soul.

Underneath her skin and jewelry,
hidden in her words and eyes
is a wall that's cold and ugly
and she's, she's scared as hell.
Trembling at the thought of feeling.
Wide awake and keeping distance.
Nothing seems to penetrate her.
Cause she's, she's scared as hell.

I am frightened too
I am frightened too
I am scared like you
I am frightened

she is mother earth and goddess. it wasn't effects of tripping. It was the awareness he found during trips. he is scared of being anima. of relating with his ego. its easier to hide behind a wall than to accept total truth of one self and ones place in this world... He doesn't like his ego. The ego to be as we were raised as society. To give that up and let go. to surrender is what is terrifying.

I think this song has a deeper meaning than you might give it credit for. Think about this for a second, on TOOL's Lateralus there is a song called Reflection. In this song there is an obvious tone for one universal mind, adressed to as "she" and "it". Maynard says he developed his sense of "her" through the use of LSD. This whole album is about his experiences with drugs and effectivally the affects of tripping. I think by saying she is scared he is recognizing he is one with her and he doesn't like it very much.

This song deals with a girl who is obsessed with modern beauty, but on the inside, she doesn't want to deal with the reality Of her being scared of showing her real self. Sooooo she's covered in "jewelry" and blocks out reality with a wall that is cold and ugly. It's not that deep because this was off their first album!! They were just getting started
