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...

If only the leaders of the world today could listen to this song and its meanings , empathy and compassion would flow if they truly heard the melody and felt at one with the rhythms and there unity in the end ..

Pretty obvious | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

I completely agree with ben below me. I can't understand why it's so hard for some people though for me it was pretty obvious what the point of the song is. Because you know the title says it all...the fucking title is THIRD EYE. If you know what the third eye is it's pretty simple to understand the point of the song, the details might be harder and that's where the beauty lies.

Something more "in the middle" of all of these interpretations | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Bottom performed by Tool

Most of Tool's songs have a relatively abstract philosophic or spiritual meaning. I don't think that they are completely abstract and open up to whatever interpretation. I think Maynard feels something more particular when writing. What defines his writing is his tendency of speaking about personal development and inner fights or even "inner relationships".
That being said, if I tried to extract a relatively abstract meaning out of this I'd say that it is about addiction or depression or any similar kind of situation. It's pretty clear to me that it expresses such feelings. He was either recalling multiple situations that create such feelings or a certain situation that it is related to many others anyway.

    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

ok this song is about finding a higher state of consciousness polo is the only person that has reviewed this song correctly it is not about sex another person or love it is about truth and enlightenment or more so a path to follow to gain those thing and the part about using drugs is just explaining a tool to use in order to get past ego and to the primal self so you're not in your own way it's very hard to try to explain these things in just a few short paragraph but i'm right... this song is not open to any kind of interpatation it isn't cryptic it just deals in ideas that are hard for your average joe to understand it toke mean years to fully understand maynards lyrics but parabol lateralus 46and2 and other sngs are all about this same idea

Damn, so ignorant comments | Reviewer: Anonymous

    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

Yeah, um, this songs is really linked with Rosetta Stoned which is about DMT...If you have to question whether Tool like drugs or not, I don't think you're really much of a fan :p

Intension | Reviewer: Chris
    ------ About the song Intension performed by Tool

The song title is called intension because Maynard sings about the intension of human beings, or rather what the defining characteristics of human beings are that are not necessarily changeable, but inherent.

Parabola | Reviewer: bananaboat
    ------ About the song Parabola performed by Tool

One of the more likely interpretations is that Maynard feels that his spirit and soul are being a bit confined by the limits his body puts on him. Of course he will die, but he feels that the legacy and imprit that he has left on this world will go on through the generations forever, along is soul and spirit.he has come to terms with his human mortality but know that his soul is immortal

Evolution, fools. | Reviewer: Matty F
    ------ About the song Forty-Six & 2 performed by Tool

This song isn't about drugs at all...
As people have already said, there are 46 chromosomes in human DNA - the song is about evolving to having an extra two chromosomes, explaining the 'shedding skin'. When he says "I", he is talking about us as an entire, and unified, race. He's talking about people clinging to being the same old repetitions of classic human behaviours, and not allowing ourselves to properly better ourselves as a race (picking scabs - stopping the 'healing' process).
My interpretation of the shadow symbolism is that we have to embrace the darker parts of ourselves in order to see the light; to be conscious of our destructive paths so we can aim for a better day. It could also mean a temporary sacrificial act to secure a long term improvement (stepping through my shadow, coming out the other side...)

    ------ About the song Third Eye performed by Tool

There is so much about this song that justs forces me to stop what ever it is that im doing at the time and just listen and take in as much as I can because in there is the clues to something that has haunted me since I was a child. Those distant far of memories and feelings of awareness that you just can not explain,and if you try too the only answer is rencarnation, To be born again, To have lived before. To take your first breath, In...Out...In...Out, To Look into your mothers eyes, something familiar, Different vessel.
