I am German and I am sad that I had no chance of discovering the meaning of the lyrics of this song. But reading your comments is very interesting too. I think the meaning of this song is not hidden in the words it's hidden in what you as non-German first think about the German speach.
BTW: This reminds me of a social experiment where a crowd of students were shown faces and phrases of different foreigners and from different foreign languages from around the world. Some faces and phrases were shown more often than others.
At the end the students had to give marks to the phrases and faces under the aspect how friendly they looked to them.
The faces and phrases that were shown more often always got better marks than the others.

Everyone thinks Nazis when they hear someone speaking German to a large crowd.
Now, if you don't use eggs in this recipe it will come out bland, obviously.
If eggs represent the Jews... Then I think what Maynard was saying culture is bland without the Jews...
Hence the joke "and no eggs" the recipe would suck otherwise.

IT'S A JOKE! It's a joke so people will sit around discussing "'Oh, gee, what do you think that means!?' 'I think it's about Satan's nazi testicles being polished by Hitler!' 'I think you've got it!!'" It's just a joke, something for fun.

200 is much too hot. 160 is better.
I think they were just using the fact that German is such as violent language, that everything is intimidating (even the butterfly is scared of it's name in German!), so the lyrics are in German, they are portrayed as a speech, and to a large crowd too which leads you to believe it's something political. when it comes to Germany and Politics everybody thinks Nazi. So you think, this is odd, why is this on here? so you look it up, and it's a recipe. I think it's just anther subtle way of saying open your minds! German does not = Nazi!
The "No eggs" part could be something deeper, it could be left open to interpretation, or it could just be that this recipe is rank when eggs are used...

#1 its sung in german because its a german recipe
#2 its recorded in this manner so that you think its something bad
which is a part of the idea, people make judgements about the song and they can't even understand the language its in, Tools songs are almost always about transcending our own perceptions....or...
maybe he really likes hash cookies from germany and decided it should go on the album....nothing more

maybe they're "Satan's Eggs" - spawn of Satan, perhaps meaning they are really gross or hot? Or delicious, depending on your views of Satan. Somebody should try the recipe and tell me how it goes. Huzzah!

Hi I'm german an this song is not by Tool it's only on aenima.
This song is by "einstürzende neubauten" and they make allways such wired songs.

it is possible for a band to write or record a song that doesn't have a hidden, deep, or theological meaning.
Tool probably just recorded it to record it.
It's a joke.
People make too big a deal of it.

At first glance this song sounds evil and sinister, but once the lyrics are translated it turns out to be about a cookie or cake. I think this is kind of a test to see how deep into this song we will look. Some people might not care to translate the lyrics and dismiss Tool as satanists, whereas others can translate them and see that this is a clever joke and that the lyrics involving satan are just a red herring.

I don't think this song is really about satan...I think Maynard creates a metaphor being satan the bad guys or those who wanna be bad guys...I think it has a lot to do with "Hooker with a penis", it's a sequence. They smoke hash, they do all the bad stuff, but in the end they don't have guts...

You're right, it doesn't have to mean Nazi, but that is the reason why it is in German, to reflect something evil. I believe that this song is to make you ask yourself: if you were going to make a recipe for a new you, would you leave out the seeds of evil (eggs of satan)?
