Throughout the song, lead singer Maynard Keenan can be heard faintly whispering "consume, be fruitful, and multiply," as well as other, indistinguishable words. (thanks, H - 72nd Street, NY)
This tells the story of a time when Keenan was sitting with an unknown fan who told Maynard he has been a fan since their first EP in '92. The fan then accused Keenan of selling out, at which point Keenan reminded him that he is just as responsible because he bought the album. (thanks, Matthew - Hoover, AL)
Keenan hates the term "selling out," since he thinks it is very judgmental. He wanted to make the point that he and his fans stand for the same thing.
In the liner notes, the phrase "see you auntie" appears. If you sound out the letters it makes when you say it, you will get a naughty word.
Joe talks about the challenges of of making a Duke Ellington tribute album, and tells the stories behind some of his hits.
