Doesn't the word "disgustipated" tell you something about the meaning of this song. I hadn't listened to this song since I was in high school and recently listened to it again, after becoming a vegetarian. I really related to this song when I was a teenager. I felt really alienated when I looked around the world I lived in and everything revolves around death. This song made me feel slightly less insane for looking around and seeing billboards with piles of paddy's and slogans like "juicy" on them. As for the part about the Cry of the Carrots. I've heard/read about the possibility of plants having a conscience. I don't expect you to take me to seriously when I say this but I know Maynard's lyrics on Lateralus and some from Aenima talk about the Mayans and their beliefs that all life is interconnected to one consciousness "experiencing itself subjectively". Just FOOD for thought.

Yes is a personal look into a serial killer but why would it be included and why would it be deemed worthy to be in a Tool song. The realization the person has of "satan is our cousin" and his comment about "why does everything have to keep changing like this" seem arbitrary. I'm not sure why the entire last part or either of these interesting thoughts would be included in a song about how death feeds life. Death feeds the life of a serial killer, and then what? Why was he waking up in a field anyway. Why the headache. The goo I think is probably blood but what is the reason or history for anything else in this passage. I'm kinda wondering why everyone is transfixed on the life feeds on life part and the intro with the "cries of the carrots" instead of the more cryptic and confusing part of the song, the end.

I think this song is about how some people have taken the idea of peace and anti-violence too seriously. When he says "These are the cries of the carrots," he is showing somebody who has taken it to an extreme.
When he says "This is necissary. Life feeds on life feeds on life," he is saying that what we call murder is what has been happening for millions of years, it is a cycle that some people have randomly decided to think is totally wrong.
By calling himself Reverend Maynard, I think he is showing that anybody can preach and someone will listen. No matter how rediculous your ideas are, if you are willing to preach, someone is willing to listen and follow and that some fool somewhere said that it is completely wrong to kill and a few people followed.
