The Pot Lyrics

Who are you to wave your finger?
You must have been out your head.
Eye hole deep in muddy waters,
You practically raise the dead.

Rob the grave to snow the cradle,
And burn the evidence down.
Soapbox house of cards and glass,
So don't go...

    Well I'm thinking along the lines of the court system being corrupted and its saying they are just as bad as the pot heads they persecute

    Convolution.... hello are you in there? Dude first off, "better hope Maynard doesn't find out" was called humor. Something you lack (except in your social situations). And L.Ron Hubbard (please drink your purple coolaide and chill). What have you done lately that can impress us? Go ahead, tell us (I think I'm the only one listening, so feel free LOL). Go on, what have you done of interest? I like the song, have you done anything?

    The problem with Tool fans is that
    99% of them are actually sheep, something
    that Tool despises. Just look at yourselves,
    invoking "better hope Maynard doesn't find out".

    Sound like a bunch of school kids who just broke
    a window at an abandoned house.

    When you're done worshipping the altar of
    weakness, go on ahead and whip out your
    L Ron Hubbard and further your own ignorance...

    convolution,( a user) are you a stupid idiot??? you’re saying tool apposes the democratic party because its built of hypocrisy??? First thing, you’re a brain washed idiot, Second: You do know tool is a democratic band right? Every single one of the members! Before you go out making you idiotic assumptions I suggest you get your facts in line.

    This song is about
    the day Maynard almost
    came out of the closet.

    It is about his inner struggles
    with his own hypocrisy...

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song is predicting the
    hypocrisy of the Obama administration
    and how there is nothing but hypocrisy
    in the Democratic party.

    Obama likes muddy waters, and is known
    to have smoked pot before. Since he
    was born in Indonesia, where there are
    kangaroos, there is a kangaroo reference.

    This interpretation was created simply to
    balance out the lefty trash that trashes
    George W Bush, the best US president in
    history. He kicked ass and had the world
    shitting in their knickers!

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Oh this one is so easy! And I REALLY like the song, so it must be good. It's about.... The freaks that want to run the country. Even if he didn't mean it "you musta been high" should refer to Pres.Clinton (I mean come on "he didn't "inhale"" Jesus, lame. But, he was talking more about Bush (who we all hate). Most politicians are lawyers. BTW, the writer of this song is well educated. Snow... (drugs for the youth),muddy waters (Katrina),soap box (podium), house of cards (bunch of lies), burn the evidence down (9/11), glass house (we can all see). Kangaroo courts. Basically, he is singing of many situations, all of which.... we can see now that the smoke has cleared (I just don't know if I want to look....anymore). Our job as I see it, is to teach the young... LOOK at what is standing in front of you... not what you wish was there, not what they tell you is there, not what they lie to you is there... but LOOK.. look, not at what people say, but what they do. And that my friends will save you in any relationship.

    I think it is basically bashing the government and comparing them to pot heads (kangaroo be stoned is guilty as the government)and saying that they can't see hear or say anything that is right(eye ball deep in muddy water[you wouldn't be able to see or breath or hear])

    I actually always felt that this song was a response to the drug war and the effort the government has taken to prosecute pot yet at the same time most of these politicians have smoked weed... They must be so fucking high.

    And why are all these people locked up without a reason. who is the government to go around waving their finger at me...

    You guys are reading way too much into this...

    Read the lyrics as a story, no hidden meanings.

    It's in the title...."The Pot"

    Ok I guess I am the only one that dosn't see this song as being about drugs and politics.

    here we go

    Who are you to wave your finger?
    You must have been outta your head
    Eye hole deep in muddy waters
    You practically raised the dead

    Who are you to call my beliefs crazy
    your religion is based off of ones that came befor


    Rob the grave to snow the cradle
    Then burn the evidence down
    Soapbox house of cards and glass so
    Don't go tossin' your stones around

    the church stole the idea of jebus being born on dec 25 from mithra and they burnd all the old templs and built thiers in thier place. It is so fragial and flimzy if you just look into it, it will fall apart like a house of cards


    You must have been high

    you must have been high to think I wouldn't have noticed

    Foot in mouth and head up ass
    So whatcha talkin' 'bout?
    Difficult to dance 'round this one
    'til you pull it out. boy,

    go ahead and try to rebut this but you can't untill you admit to your lies

    You must have been so high

    Steal, borrow, refer, save your shady inference
    Kangaroo done hung the jury with the innocent

    there is no room for interpretation and anyone other that the athority has no buisness trying to and will be prosecuted with those who go directly against it.

    Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
    (Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
    When you pissed all over my black kettle.

    every time scince advances you lose more of your myth and cry about it.

    You must have been high!

    Who are you to wave your finger?
    So full of it
    Eye balls deep in muddy waters
    Fuckin' hypocrite

    who are you to tell me I am wronge when you have blinded yourself with your own faith

    Liar, lawyer, mirror, show me. What's the difference?
    Kangaroo done hung the guilty with the innocent.

    once again it dosnt matter if you are guilty or not the apperance of athority and the ability to prosecute anyone who appers to go against the fold is what holds thier power.


    Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
    (Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
    When you pissed all over my black kettle.

    see above

    You must've been...

    So who are you to wave your finger?
    Who are you to wave your fatty fingers at me?
    You must have been out your mind

    see above

    Weepin' shades of indigo
    Shed without a reason *
    Weepin' shades of indigo

    your wining about a myth


    Liar, lawyer - mirror, for you what's the difference?
    Kangaroo be stoned. He's guilty as the government.

    see above

    Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo
    (Musta) got lemon juice up in your eye
    Now when you pissed all over my black kettle.


    You must've been high!

    Eyeballs deep in muddy waters
    Eyeballs deep in muddy waters
    Ganja? P-lease!
    You must have been out your mind

    thats my take

    Ok this is what I think I think it's about hypocrites how people judge other people for doing the exact same thing and and try to glorify themselves by doing so
