PBA: 5

Atypical track off their 2001 masterpiece Lateralus. Where the other songs come off as pretentious, this one is just tension release. Luckily the Tool Army of nerdy (and sometimes quite scary) fans came up with a lot of theories about the song. I’m not even going to explain or link, you can google it yourself, but i warn you: the world of Tool songmeaning explanations is not a pretty one. It’s like one of those planets Luke Skywalker crashes on: dark, gloomy, monsters: The Dark Side. So let’s not worry about all of this and enjoy this song as a cool metal song. Maynard’s screams are cool, Danny’s 7000 drums are just perfect.
