Tool Lyrics

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
THEY ARE YOUR TOOL | Reviewer: Guillaume
    ------ About the song Schism performed by Tool

Caden malott is right, tool members chose that band name because they wanna be exactly that : YOUR tool to achieve whatever it is you wanna achieve. Therefore their lyrics, even tho inspired by the life of the members wich are human just like us, have no PRECISE meaning but rather applies to alot of general scenarios and go in depths of what we as human feel when facing these situations. Just listen to any tool lyrics and youll see you can identify yourself at some point of your life through them, afterwards its just about moving forward never forgetting these good or bad memories with a killer soundtrack in da background :D

Just obvious things | Reviewer: urbanshaman
    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

in... out... Breath concentration to clean your mind. Classic way of meditation, nothing more.
This song is about enlightenment, special state when you realize all diffrent operations that happen in your mind right now. And you can control all the stuff as you wish. There is no more thoughts that occur automatically. This is the moment when you realize all your subconsciousness. Moment of maximum possible realization.(Thats why "ive known this all along") All your mind parts become one MIND.
Youre opening your third eye.

The song monologues are between "normal" and "Three-eyed" states of one consciousness.
(Maybe Maynard's one)

Came out to watch you play
Why are you running away? - Is this just some kind of Maynard subjective experience? I have no obvious intepritation.

My view of the song | Reviewer: Steve
    ------ About the song The Patient performed by Tool

I think it has, somewhat, a deep message about its much more satisfying to live as kind and beloved person even if its not rewarding be it immediate, later on in time, or never at all. So i think not only about a patient living with a illness or Maynard's life when his mother was in the hospital when he was young.

And guys, remember Tool wants their music to give you your own interpretation of their songs. Thus why they never release official lyrics in the first place. They want you guys to have your own opinion of the song. Neither right nor wrong.

Ego | Reviewer: Laura
    ------ About the song Bottom performed by Tool

I like to think this song pertains to a man battling his ego. I know Tool really put an emphasize on the ego in the Lateralus album, but perhaps this song as well. Maybe it is just me interpreting it this way because I too am trying to destroy my ego, which is no easy task. If I let you, you would make me destroy myself.
"in order to survive you, i must first survive myself.
I can sink no further, and I cannot forgive you
there's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you.
I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you, there's no other choice
im shameless now, im nameless now, im nothing now, im no one now
but my soul must be iron 'cause my fear is naked
im naked and fearless
and my fear is naked"

Evil | Reviewer: The Derpster
    ------ About the song Die Eier Von Satan performed by Tool

One of the ingredients is Hash so it is Evil after all, weed contributes to the continual stupidity of our young people (to a fault); kids are already pretty stupid and this just makes it worse... sad part is youngsters think they know everything?! Lolz, dumbshits xD

You're getting off track. | Reviewer: Caden Malott
    ------ About the song Schism performed by Tool

Guys, Tool is all about trusting your own instincts when it comes to songs. I understand you want everyone to see your interpretation of the song, but that most definitely goes against what Tool is about. They believe their songs mean what you think they mean. So having said that, this topic of song meanings is harmful if you want the music to connect with you. Keep your meaning to yourself. Let the other person get the same experience you did (or didn't) by letting them guess what it means on their own.

Fibonacci | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Lateralus performed by Tool

It's funny how people think their personal interpretation is the right one..I think the song is pretty self explanatory..lyrics are written in Fibonacci sequence, then he talks about the spiral..Fibonacci spiral, ever increasing..ride the spiral to the's about finding happiness and fulfillment within the search for meaning

whatever the meaning is.... | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song H. performed by Tool

its not important for me, what Maynard meant... we all got different experiences in life.. important for me is that the lyrics mean something to me.
And important for me is, that i believe every single word MJ is singing, cause he is always authentic and transports true feelings to me...

Twin Flame | Reviewer: Loyana
    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

To me this song represents the meeting of twin flames. " I opened my eye and we were there". Any one that has met their twin flame can certainly relate.

Truth In This Song | Reviewer: Anon
    ------ About the song The Patient performed by Tool

This song is about the trials of the enlightened. It is hard 'work'. The energy is drained, and often the enlightened kill themselves or suffer from mental 'disorders' as a result of not being able to handle the powerful energy they thrust upon themselves. The vampire is the craving for knowledge. The 'patient' is also the 'healer'.
