Don't know if you noticed this... but there's a great resemblance between Sweat and "the Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemingway. Just wanted to share that with you.

I supose you could look at it that way- but the lyrics kind of deviate from the main concept of the plot line

Just a quick theory, it's the whole evolution thingy, with Tool, the very first song I'm the hunter and the fisherman symbolizes early man, hunter gatherer type. Then shoot straight to Lateralus which symbolizes growth, maturity and all that shit. In a sense Tool has put the history of evolution onto 4 cds over 9-10 years.

Back to the drawing board.
