Disgustipated Lyrics

And the angel of the lord came unto me, snatching me up from my place of slumber. And took me on high, and higher still until we moved to the spaces betwixt the air itself. And he brought me into a vast farmlands of our own Midwest. And as we...

    Most of the guys here I agree with. The beginning is about how anyone such as he calls himself Reverend Maynard can preach to people. And as far as the middle life feeds on life could either be a serial killer or making sarcastic poke at saying life feeds on life which is shown, so the killer is saying this applies to humans too. Which it doesn't humans don't need to kill other humans to live. The final bit was a recorded message was that of a person who had seen red so was obviously a killer or had problems.

    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.

    I really love this song by TOOL...its one of those ones that really makes me think. its the type of song where all the effects by danney in the backround really set a mood to the song. what I think Maynard is tryin to say in the first couple lines is almost like the story of scrooge and the three ghosts who take him to a different perspective to see life. from the lines....

    And the angel of the lord came unto me
    snatching me up from my place of slumber.
    And took me on high and higher still
    until we moved to the spaces betwixt the air itself.
    And he brought me into a vast farmlands of our own midwest.

    the next set of lyrics below show the sympathy the Maynard gains when he finds out the significance of every life. That is why he says "and I begged" it shows the fear or understanding that has been made aware.

    And as we descended cries of impending doom rose from the soil.
    One thousand nay a million voices full of fear.
    And terror possessed me then.
    And I begged "Angel of the Lord what are these tortured screams?"
    And the angel said unto me,
    "These are the cries of the carrots, the cries of the carrots!

    By Maynard calling himself reverend, I believe he is metaphorically saying that we all think that we are superior, especially to other abiotic factors in life such as carrots. Seeing that reverends are a higher position in the religion, it may mean "I am above you"

    "You see, Reverend Maynard,
    tomorrow is harvest day and to them it is the holocaust."
    And I sprang from my slumber drenched in sweat
    like the tears of one million terrified brothers and roared,

    the next part shows the awareness that has been made to maynard, maybe shows some guilt in him. it all talks about the savage way that humans go through life without a care fo anything except for the benefit of themselves.

    "Hear me now, I have seen the light!
    They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul!
    Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers!"
    Can I get an amen? Can I get a hallelujah? Thank you Jesus.

    "Life feeds on life feeds on life feeds on life feeds on........This is necessary."

    hmmmm this next part is tricky, I haven't really come up with anything yet, but can symbolize the mood swings of someone, maybe something hypocritical to change your mind so much.....i donno, if anyone can help with this I would love to know!

    I don't know for sure how I interpret the song, but I would like to add some thoughts about the existing interpretation. I think the references to following the rants of another mortals are valid. We really need to think about how much we are willing to follow the lead of another mortals when it comes to religious interpretations of the Bible or anything else that happens to us in modern times. When it comes down to it, each and every person has a clue as to what is right. It's just a matter of following through and doing what is right. You can take advantage, or you can contribute. It comes down to that. I don't care what God you pray to, it comes down to that.
