Danny grew up in Paola, KS. Relatively normal, an element
of mystery was added to Danny's childhood when one day he
spied his father with a large sword conducting a Masonic
ritual. Danny would later notice himself performing similar
movements when he began playing drums at the age of
thirteen. As Danny progressed through high school and then
college at the University of Missouri in Kansas City he
began supplementing his studies in percussion with
speculation into the principles of geometry, science, and
metaphysics. A commitment to More...

Review about Tool songs
Addiction | Reviewer: Juras------ About the song Stinkfist performed by Tool
It is not about giving up to sex. It is about indifference, internal indifference and numbness. Addiction to sex stuff. Having sex and not making love. The first way is a dead end to your humanity.
Meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Vicarious performed by Tool
I believe the meaning of this song is how other people feed on each others misfortune, and tragedies. Society as a whole gives attention to the violence, and negativity in the world. I think Tool is trying to attribute us to zombies. All we do is blankly stare at televisions and computer screens for hours of the day.
We're vicarious voyeurs.
"And I need to watch things die... from a safe distance."
This quote is a primary example of how they feel we love watching things die, but at no harm to us.
Humans are instinctively violent.
AMAZING | Reviewer: Nathan D------ About the song Vicarious performed by Tool
this song is amazing!! if you dont know what this song means than you sir are a ignoramus.. its about how the media place violence and deaths on their news because us as a viewer would rather see something like a guy getting shot than a story about politics.. and its so true but we will not admit the truth :)
seems straightforward | Reviewer: julian------ About the song The Patient performed by Tool
I was listening to this song today and thought id finally check out the lyrics. I was pretty surprised of how straightforward the meaning of the song seemed. It seems to be just about taking care of someone with a terminal illness and all the pain, frustration and strange emotions that brings. I am very familiar with that subject and im pretty sure maynards mom was ill for most of his life and was kind of a vegetable. As with all tool songs im sure there are other meanings and intentions tied in but this seems like the main message, atleast to me.
Pine Away | Reviewer: Brad------ About the song Reflection performed by Tool
To pine away means to lose vigor, health or flesh as through grief; after her husband died she just pined away.
The way I see it, he (either Maynard or the storyteller) was contemplating suicide (I have come curiously close to the end) while feeling sorry for himself. He's feeling that everyone and everything is against him and his ego is leading him into this dark empty spiritual hole where he may find peace alone but he knows that this is pitiful. And as he's lying there curled up crying to himself, about himself he sees the full moon bright in the sky. He knows that the moon doesn't make it's own light but it is a reflection of the sun. Without the sun the earth and the moon would just be drifting. They get their light and energy from the sun and are guided through the void of space by the sun. And so he makes a spiritual parallel with himself as the moon. If he lets his narcissism push everyone away he will be alone and drifting aimlessly. So he must crucify his ego and accept that his spiritual light doesn't come from himself but from a higher power (call it God or Gaia, or a universal connection or whatever you want). He must get out of his hole and let the spiritual light shine upon him in order to shine spiritually before he pines away. Then he urge the rest of us to also crucify our egos so we can come together in spirit and be capable of anything imaginable. And we must do it before we pine away.
MAYNARD EVERYWHERE | Reviewer: Iamb------ About the song Jambi performed by Tool
"The song is about Maynard's son" "It's about Maynard's mother" "It's about Maynard's father" "It's about Maynard's sister" Maynard here...Maynard there...Man, STOP IT...NOT ALL THE SONGS TALK ABOUT THE MAYNARD'S FCKING LIFE...NOT ALL THE SONGS ARE FOR MAYNARD, Get it for godness sake. And it's horribly writed, it has a LOT of errors in some words, vety bad work man
Taking without giving | Reviewer: Tommy------ About the song Ticks and Leeches performed by Tool
Such a powerful song; I love a lot of different metal but I think it's incredibly hard to convey anger as a "purified" emotion without undermining it with self-indulgence. This song absolutely nails it and is something written with such care, craft and emotion. I hope they f*cking choke as well, whoever they are.
Anyway, it's undoubtedly inspired by a personal relationship, whether that is with a record company or someone within that structure, or just a friend or family or who/whatever (it could even be applied to the relationship between human beings and their environment, music fans with their favourite band etc). I don't think it really matters, the lyrics can be applied to a multitude of situations.
The idea seems to be straight forward; someone/thing takes and takes and takes from a host who is giving support (i.e. their blood as the metaphor) through kindness (or perhaps is afraid to say "no" due to the damage it will do, probably a combination of both) and like with anything in this life, if you take without giving then you will destroy what you are taking from.
If you use an established relationship to take advantage of someone that you should be sharing and building with and do this repeatedly then eventually they will react, in this case it's pure anger. Hope this is what you wanted, hope this is what you had in mind, cos this is what you're getting. It seems to be a similar theme to The Patient, only the reaction in that circumstance is to walk away to save both of you.
Perhaps that is just how I relate to it, that's the beauty and mystery of Tool; there's so many personal relations you can find within their music.
The Depopulation Agenda of the Global Elite | Reviewer: Michael------ About the song Disgustipated performed by Tool
So I was trippin' on acid, which I stupidly decided to eat after a day of eating Xanax and drinking Four Lokos. I was curled up in a lethargic ball on my floor feeling like I was going to just "pass away" and I don't know if this is when it happened or when I decided to take a shower and get all dressed up like I was going out to wade through my bad trip and was in the bathroom that I heard in the other room on Hulu a commercial or something, I didn't know what it was at the time, with some lady with a sort of calm yet gladly evil manner, bragging about how they kill 6,000 every year and commit numerous crimes against humanity and shit. I like rushed into the other room and caught like the very end of it, realizing it was an actual commercial. I was freaking out, because I didn't know if someone like hacked my computer and was fucking with me or I was part of some psy-op or what. Anyway, I found the commercial the next day and it was a Bayer birth-control pill commercial but it didn't say what I heard when I was tripping. No, instead it was talking about how Bayer cares so much for the well-being of women, etc., etc., etc.
In Georgia, there is a random monument built by an Anonymous group, probably Masonic, on government property and it lays out guidelines for a new age pretty much, one of which is that the earth's population of humans shall not exceed 500 million people.
Moral here, there is an elite group of people who might not display insanity openly, but inwardly believe they are destined as higher beings than their fellow men and that they have a duty to cause mass death of the human species. I would just tell them to kill themselves if they think they have a duty to kill people to save the world
This is necessary. It's the drive of a self-destructive shadow within these people and within humanity as a collective and among individuals as well. A shadow is perhaps things we deny about ourselves, yet they are plainly evident. As other animals, we kill for food, and this is perhaps a correct integration of our nature, but you look at a film of a factory farm and you see a very dark side nevertheless to the human psyche, one that is for lack of a better way to put it, psychopathic. Look at our wars overseas as a country. Our drone strikes have killed almost 200 innocent children, yet you don't hear about it in the news. It is a reality we cover up about ourselves or even justify openly with inaccurate, baseless, senseless, blind, prideful, leader obedient viewpoints. We kill children and call it good in other words, saying we're killing the terrorists, even though in reality, we are killing children and creating the terrorists, but we deny it, yet it is the truth.
Also, there could potentially be a holocaust of Christians who are sheep among wolves. This would be driven by the self-destructive psychopathic collective shadow of the collective unconscious, or Satan to put it in more simple terms that are mythological and not philosophical, not explained, so speculated upon
We murder children and say "it is necessary" but only in the eyes of psychopaths in the military industry who have made warmongering their profession, yet they paint a different picture of good, and then play off pride, to cover up the evil. So the people are sheep, and at any time the sheep could be led to the slaughter.
Perhaps Maynard had a salvia experience of the cries of the carrots, so he used it as inspiration for some random rant in the opening of a song. Between the air itself he experienced a vision upon which he realized the suffering he causes other beings. Yet this is his very nature. So from my Christian perspective, I'd say treating your needs as sacred and thanking God for what you do eat or crush under your foot for that matter, the land you walk on, because it's not yours, makes what is otherwise wrong right. Because the only way we can be right in our existence is with God. Otherwise, we're just wrong
an even different perspective | Reviewer: Michael------ About the song Flood performed by Tool
I think this song is about the truth that even if you believe in the Son, you still have to face the trials and tribulations and forces of life over which we have no control but nevertheless cleanse us of the objects of lower consciousness, I suppose, and reveal our own nature too us pushing us to higher levels of consciousness and morale or bringing us face to face with death and letting go of this life to move on truly to the truth and be cleansed in its waters. Even if we know that Jesus is the truth, the way and the light and He brought us the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, do we really know what that means, that the last should be first and the first shall be last? Jesus seems almost like a spiritual lord of karma, for lack of a better way to put it. God is a lord of judgment, which ultimately just means God is a lord of karma, a regulator and instigator, and a record keeper. The truth reveals our true selves to us as what it is and not our ignorant blind delusion of what it is. We are full of sin which brings judgment, and we are subject to temptation and strong winds, through which if we persevere, we build character. This is what the Christian path is all about. Are you a good person? A blind person would answer yes, but a rabbit with glasses might see the psychopathic nature of the system chanting almost demonically "this is necessary" and then ending with the clear inner-depiction and thought process of a killer who sees people off in the distance and moves towards them as if they're his prey, his to kill. I know that's the next song, but what evs. Do I have a point? not really. Peace, Love, Shalom. Go with God, seek His Spirit which resides with us. Bless
Your all wrong | Reviewer: No1Toolfan------ About the song The Patient performed by Tool
Being the no1 Tool fan the song only means what i interpret it to be.Fuck me wake up i really dont care what it means to you as it means what it means to me which is different to what it means to you.Whogives a fuck what the meaning is to the the band.Some seem to be missing the point of great music "we all relate in our own ways and thats what makes it special.Its not a competition of who is the biggest tool fan.I really couldnt give a fuck about what Maynard meant by this or that.
