Get up, get up now. Get up, get up now. Get up, get up now. Get up, get up now. Free yourself from yourself. Free yourself from yourself. Locked up inside you, like the calm beneath castles, is a cavern of treasures that no one has been to. Let's...

    A fever is 4 degrees up in body temperature. You can take this some in several ways. But I believe one meaning is about love and a bad relationship. Or you can just keep thinking it’s about butt sex.

    "Shit blood cum on my hands"? I think that's pretty obvious

    I think this song is about hairless sphynx cats, which Maynard owns, they are four degrees warmer than other cats. Saying the song is about anal sex when it's really about cats sounds like the hilarious misinformation tool likes to promote.

    I believe this song is about learning about magic fro. A sacred source in which the four elements of nature are manipulated through the act of a animal sacrifice and the shedding of a holy regiment of daily sinlessness in order to obtain magical powers and be able to build a floating castle in the sky.

    The anus is 4 degrees warmer than a vagina. I think it was Danny Carey that provided the info. They were recording late one night and one of them read the factoid and they ran with it.

    I think, if the song is about sodomy, Maynard was trying to get the Army off of his back. Sodomy, even consentual, is a crime punishable by up to five years in prison and dishonorable discharge. The army would never take someone they think is a butt fuhqer. The song may also be (almost certainly is) about the four degrees of consciousness. The fourth and highest degree is Aum or Om. Aum is a state of consciousness that is beyond consciousness. To acheive this level of consciousness is to be free from ones self.
    The human brain functions by transmitting and receiving signals(brainwaves). Brainwaves are electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves can pass through matter in any state. It is absolutely possible that MJK is referring to his attempt to transmit an electromagnetic signal from his brain on to someone elses.
    Then again he seriously could have been trying to convince the army that he is a butt fuhqer. Desertion is punishable by death so it is possible that he was looking for a way out that wouldn't involve him being shot.

    The correct interpretation as proven by science ???

    The song is about how music played in the A= 444 hz scale is empowering to mankind and yes this song was created using instruments tuned to this scale. The powers that be (rockefeller) changed the standard tuning to a= 440 hz sometime in the 20-30's era stealing something that is very empowering spiritually from all of us.
    suggested search terms: cymatics, hans jenny, solfeggio tones, dr emoto water

    If you want to play around on a guitar or synth with the tunings get an adjustable tuner android app or apple app etc. set the tuning to a = 444 and then tune. play also try 432 scale

    be blessed in the name of yeshua

    I am pretty sure like a lot of tools songs its about finding the true potential your mind and body can unleash with the metaphor being anal sex because most wont try it or accept it most wont accept our minds can be much more than we could ever realize

    I think its about investigating (anything) for yourself because you might like what you find. People are afraid because of preconceived notions, taboo, or stigma attached. Look, listen, and observe for yourself and take what you want and leave the rest. Definite metaphor there though like all there songs.

    If you have an idea of how Maynard thinks, you wouldn't even doubt that this song is about persuading someone to participate in the act of anal sex. That's just what Maynard does, and that's what we fucking love him for.

    Now that that is said, read the interpretations above, sit back and pick your favorite, or create your own. Music doesn't have to mean the same for you as it does for me.
    Make your own versions, and take what you need and leave the rest.

    But anal sex. Think about it, read the lyrics and realize that it matches.
    Anal sex.

    I believe in the whole multiple meanings likewise. I also believe that Tool songs are open for everyone to have their own personal opinion and meaning. Like this song for instance. I had imagined a few things. The first one was like a therapist or a psychologist trying to dig deeper into someones thoughts and to show them things that they have suppressed in their subconscious. The other (and most common i have seen) is the whole anal sex thing. Like a person trying to get their partner to try anal sex and refusing to take no as an answer. My final interpretation is stand up for yourself and question the things that you were raised to believe in.

    It is a double meaning. We are raping the Earth to the point of the core temp. rising 4 degrees to the point of the ocean rising. Which he is obviously hoping for if you listened to Aenima.

    Maynard is quoted as describing the 4 degree warmer temperature of the poop chute which strongly implied that this song is about unconventional love making, but I always take any thing MJK says in interviews with a grain of salt knowing the band is frequently intentionally cryptically sarcastic in the info they share through media. Certainly there are major inferences to anal sex with a rookie partner, but deeper than just that there are metaphorical references to man's primal urges to hunt, kill, eat, and conquer in general. Keep in mind that MJK reportedly was raped by his step father and refers to the experience in Prison Sex and Jimmy. That info leads to me to theorize that it is more than just about the act of anal intercourse and more a message of human emotional pain that forges the future behaviors of the ones who've experienced such trauma. The end result is that he sees anal sex as acceptable and possibly pleasurable, but not when the receiver isn't a wiling participant, thus the lines that describe his persuasive efforts to convince the partner that it will be a freeing, spiritual, and painless physical event. MJK may be the most literary, brilliant, thought-provoking, and poignant lyricist out there, at least in my 44 years of lifetime. You won't see threads that illustrate the thinking and philosophical evaluations of artists product like this for Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer.

    Ok whats with everyone saying its about sex... it could be but if you see that everyone else says it is why would you? explore you mind and find a different and logical meaning. for i do not believe maynard thinks and sings of nothing more than sex. however i don't know him so it could be possible. On to my meaning for 4 degrees. Multiple people have said something close, but what it means to me is live you life to the fullest or don't live. 4 degrees means to me, your closer to you. its like a game of hot and cold. you opening your mind to come to your fullest form of mind and body.
