  • This song is about censorship - "People tell me what say, what to think and what to play." The video also demonstrates the censorship theme. >>

  • Aldrin from Manila, Philippinesa cool track from their debut album...its a simple song that tackles censorship i love the combination of bass and the guitar and the intro screaming... f@##k you hahaha...
  • Donna from *megadon City*, United Kingdomi like how at the end... 'just kidding' like, he's making a comment in the song of other artists and musicians(i can't say what i want to, even when im not serious), but not him or tool(just kidding)- who will never allow themselves to be censored...
    even more hilairous, the origional cover of undertow was censored and walmart insiseted they change the cover.
  • Mel from Sydney, Australia'I cant say what i want to'. Maynard is suggesting he cant be open with his feelings and freedom of speech as a result of the authorities guiding our every moves.In the video the tape over mouths represent their silence resulting in throwing up because the authoroties restriction sickens them
  • Ian from New York, NyIf you think the video is gross then you aren't getting the point of it. It's supposed to show the members at their filthist to show that they don't care about how they are viewed.
  • George from Hell, you can find the video there, its the only video where the band is in it for the longevity of the video(they were in sober for like 15 seconds), but the video is gross
