just a tool thought
    #499680 - 12/24/01 12:06 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

i was thinking about the lyrics to the tool song "part of me" off their first album, opiate, and i came to an interesting interpretation... based on the idea that he is speaking as god, and not as maynard. i won't give an interpretation here, just try reading it as though these are god's thoughts. its an interesting perspective..

part of me
--------------
i know you well, you are a part of me
i know you better than i know myself
i know you best, better than anyone
i know you better than i know myself
you don't judge
you can't speak
you can't leave
you can't hurt me
you're just here for me to use
i know you best, better than one might think
i know you better than i know myself
it's time for you to make a sacrifice
it's time to die a little
give it up
you are a part of me

I should listen to more Tool... Those are some cool lyrics.
I probably would have went straight to God perspective on this one, that may not be what he actually meant, but it seems to fit quite nicely.

I think this song is actually about masturbation. But their lyrics can be interpreted in a lot of ways.

I would have said he is talking to a sexual partner...especially after reaching the end to find the "die a little" comment.
