Rosetta Stoned

by Tool

Lyrics

Alright then, picture this if you will:
10 to 2 AM, X, Yogi DMT, and a box of Krispy Kremes, in my "need to know" pose, just outside of Area 51.
Contemplating the whole "chosen people" thingy when a flaming stealth banana split the sky like one would hope but never really expect to see in a place like this.
Cutting right angle donuts on a dime and stopping right at my Birkenstocks, and me yelping...

The song is about Blame Hoffman, who was one of the first people to try the three drugs at the beginning of the songs together. If you listen to the track before this, the very end says "It's Alright, Tell me everything"

...WHOA..... . .
This song is so intense, it goes according to the well compose lyrics... freaking love it man! I believe that I've lost some hearing from frequently blasting this song. (It was worth it :))
Tool is the best ever I list to Tool every day blasting
Itunes, you asses. Don't try to control Tool's work. They'll release albums when the damn well please, don't push them for one every three years.
The second half of this album is kinda boring. Lateralus is still by far their best album. Every single song is f**king solid on its own. Aenima is a close second. 10k Days has several great songs, and the rest are entirely forgettable.
The fact that Maynard isn't in a mental institution shows his extreme intellect. U have to have some real mind/will power to handle dmt while on blotter tabs!!! PASS THAT KNOWLEDGE MAYNARD
So he s**ts the bed...awesom e XD
Tool!!! Blotter..... . . s u g a r cubes ?????? Lol! I've felt the way Maynard has sang in this song years ago!!
You guys are dumb he even says at the beginning its his dmt tripp
I'm wondering if Maynard is simply recounting what someone else experienced, maybe someone who believed they were abducted. I imagine someone rambling on and on, possibly in a mental ward or maybe even on the street homeless, from a book even, and Maynard's lyrics are verbatim. Experiencing the song with that mindset made more sense to me, as did the title of the song.

I think Maynard has a little nightime bedtime problem.
Think Maynard took some good acid!
Amazing! these guys are too good. Dmt and tool!!! Holly s**t!!!!
remestang
Love this f**king song!!!!!!
F**kin A ....BADASS
Badass tune by Tool.Rosetta Stoned.follo w for follow.
"The blotter got right on top of me" �� He must of been tripping really f**king hard to see a banana split the f**king sky and see ET...
Dont stop playing tool you are me and my dads band but my dad died of cancer so keep playing to make me happy

Genius
Love this song! Tool is the s**t!

Laughing cuz the gibberish sounds like something my ex would impersonate. Im done. Lol@ cascading
@geoff.adam9 4 The best Tool songs reward patience.
idiot
or in deep thought.
Man, Maynard must've been REALLY high to write this song.
That would be quite a s**tty realization when you remember you forgot one of the most important things that came into your life
Maynard should be pres of this falling metro!
Best TOOL. S**t. Burns. It's ended now i'm having withdrawals. A lame metallica is playing. I need more steel reserve.
Nothing against Metallica.
Let you tell it ! ........ ROCK ON !
kcity3
Krispy kremes!
Hmmm. That must take a LOT of drugs to witness that.
If only the new update fixed the album art. But great song anyways
Genius is a word that is clearly way over used. It should be used sparsely and reserved only for songs like this.
nietorocks
The s**t!!!
Besy scream ever
I miss acid trips. :(
Epic lyrics----ma y n a r d should be president--- h e would have my vote!
FLAMING STEALTH BANANA!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Every time I try to sing to this, I just wind up going "... Did a slo mo matrix descent out of the budanadamadb a n m a d a b u b u b a . . . " Dammit!!
Great music behind the lyrics. The lyrics leave me speechless.. . ��
Not that it is a bad thing, but does every Tool song go beyond 10+ minutes?! Kickass though......
Well worth 9 mins of my life anyday! Speechless
....
One of Tool's best
