Orion from Independence, Mo These are such great lyrics, about such a great subject, which is overcoming the ego, as much as possible, anyway! That's what Maynard and Henry Rollins are both referring to, in lyrics such as, "if I let you, you would make me destroy myself". Undertow is one of my favorite albums, due to lyrical content such as this, Maynard's voice, and just all around great music, with a ton of emotion. Tool is one of the only bands that has both hardcore music and extremely intelligent lyrical content. Tool is a spiritual experience, and they quite simply kick ass!
Alexandra from Dillon, MtI love henry rollin's part in this song. it is enthralling. in order to survive you i must first survive myself? what a line!!! Hell, makes my vajayjay wet thinking about how lyrically sound it is! Like, hello, you've beat me down so much that i am having a hard time dealing with myself let alone you. Ha! I love it. Truly something that was destined for a tool song.
Sebastian from Rostock, GermanyAt the Lallapalooza in 1993, Zack de la Rocha sung Henry Rollins part.
Michal from Bydgoszcz, Polandin my view it's about a soul destroyed by some idiot. It is about how hate creates only even more hate.
