I like this a LOT better than the whole "diamond sundae" guessing game we all have been playing. LISTEN TO IT with these lyrics. I vote for it!!!!!

Ok, now that I have listened again it sounds like... "I did radical donuts on a dime and something right on my Birkenstocks"

sounds about right now.

After listening to the oft-discussed 'Peanuts parents/repeat experience' line, I'm convinced he's saying both of them. The higher voice is saying 'you all sound like Peanuts parents' and the low voice is singing 'it was a repeat experience'

Tricksy bastard that Maynard.

You know, the ultimate practical joke would be to release the lyrics sheet but leave that line out. Sad but I think a few people might lose their minds on that day.

Began at 2am
Actually eating me up a box of Krispy Kremes
At my need to know post just outside Area 51
Contemplating the whole "chosen people" thing
When just then a flaming, stealth banana split the sky like, woah, wide open
Never expected to see it in a place like this.
I do believe I put 'n' spilled a diamond sundae right on my Birkenstocks
Then he yelled at me, "Holy fucking shit!"

("Fuck you!" x7)

Then the X-Files being
who looked like some kind of blue-green Jacki Chan
With Issabella Rossillini lips and breath that reeked
did a wicked jump there also while making the sound a-banana-da-banana
And that's when I opened up my bug eyes,
My gaping jaw, and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip
And all I could think was,
"I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice that I pissed my fuckin' pants."

So alive this way.
Like an apparition,
He had me cryin' out,
"Fuck me!
It's gotta be
Deadhead
Chemistry!
The bottom got right on top of me!
Got me seein' E-motherfuckin'-T!"

And after calming me down with some orange slices
And some fetal spooning, ET revealed to me his singular purpose.
He said, "You are the Chosen One;
The One who will deliver the message.
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
And a warning for those who do not."
Me. The Chosen One.
They chose me, and I didn't graduate from fuckin' high school.

You'd better
You'd better
You'd better
You'd better listen

Then he looked right through me
With somniforous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real
Like the time they floated away
See my heart? It is pounding
'Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

This is so real
Like I woke up in Wonderland
All sorta terrifying
I don't wanna be all alone
When I tell this story
And can anyone tell me why
It was a repeat experience?
Will I ever be coming down?
This is so real
Finally it's my lucky day
See my heart? It is racing
'Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I just said!
See them telling children
And this wasn't all in my head.
See, ET took ahold of my hand
And invited me right in
And they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin.

Strapped down on my bed
Feet cold 'n' eyes red
'N' I'm out of my head
Am I alive, am I dead?
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed!

Hey, hey...
High...

Overwhelmed as one would be
Placed in my position
Such a heavy burden out to be the one
Born to bear and read you all the details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see

But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again
Typical

Strapped down on my bed
Feet cold 'n' eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive, am I dead?
Sunkist 'n' Sudafed
Gyrascopes 'n' infrared
Won't help, braindead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said
To make me out to be a hero
Can't remember what he said
God help me
Can't remember what he said

Don't know, won't know (x12)

God damn, shit the bed!
close.. but i think it's more like this

Alrighty then

10 to 2 AM
And actually eating up an old box of Krispy Kremes
At my need-to-know post.
Just outside Area 51
Contemplating the whole chosen people thing
When a flaming stealth banana split the sky like, wide open.
I never expected to see it in a place like this.
I do believe I spilled a diamond sundae
Or something wet on my Birkenstocks
And [you're yelping]
Holy fucking shit

Then the x-file beings who were like
some kind of blue-grey [Jackie Chan]
With Isabella Rossellini lips and breath that reeked
[They're wicked-shot terrorists all while making the sound]
abananadabanana so when I opened up my bug eyes, my gaping jaw and my sweaty lower and upper lip
And all I could think was
I hope that my partner here doesn't notice
that I pissed my fucking pants

Nope, I don't agree with "a repeat experience"...it sounds to me like "you all sound like peanuts parents, will I ever be coming down...

I hear this when I use an EQ and drown the music and I also hear this on various live versions.

Just a few quick thoughts:
As far as the "peanuts parents / repeat experience" line, I can't make it out but I think it should relate to something that elevated him, since in the next line he asks "Will I ever be coming down?". Keep in mind that the latin prefix "Epi-" means above or over.
Also, I wanted to know your thoughts on the "Holy fuckin' shit" part. I don't think it's part of the story, I think it's something he interjects in the middle of the story because this was such a traumatic experience for him and he is having a very difficult time reliving the memory of the events which transpired. Just like it says later on in the song, "I don't wanna be all alone when I tell the story".
Last, but not least; How about "Needle-spooning"? Possibly referencing drug injections. That is what I heard the first time I listened and I related that phrase to the skynyrd song 'needle and the spoon'. Of course that song deals with heroin or meth, but, how the fuck would I know how E.T. administers sedatives?

Well to go along with your thoughts, if you've ever watched charlie brown specials you hear how his parents or teachers sound when they speak to them which is all muffled sounding, well within the context of the song and due to his "experience" he's either high or due to the incredible nature of his experience he thinks he's high and that coupled with the fact he can't hear the nurse and dr speaking clearly, he either knows he's high or thinks he is and wonders when he'll be coming down and be able to hear and feel normally again. I know what he means from personal experience.

So that's why I think it's peanuts parents, along with the fact I hear those two words and also I hear them even more clearly on the live versions.

As for fetal spooning, well I may be explaining the obvious, and I'm not sure where the phrase is coined from, but in utero you're in a fetal position and after birth, a fetal position (your knees drawn in close to your body and up close to your chin) is a comforting body position and that coupled with "spooning" which is when another person lays next to your body from behind you and mimics that position along the contoured bends of the other person for comfort and closeness, can make the person being spooned feel protected and safe as well as comforted.

I think that's perfect reasoning for the lyrics to be fetal spooning the in context of the story and song.

So that's why I think it's peanuts parents, along with the fact I hear those two words and also I hear them even more clearly on the live versions.

As for fetal spooning, well I may be explaining the obvious, and I'm not sure where the phrase is coined from, but in utero you're in a fetal position and after birth, a fetal position (your knees drawn in close to your body and up close to your chin) is a comforting body position and that coupled with "spooning" which is when another person lays next to your body from behind you and mimics that position along the contoured bends of the other person for comfort and closeness, can make the person being spooned feel protected and safe as well as comforted.

I think that's perfect reasoning for the lyrics to be fetal spooning the in context of the story and song.

I think at the end he is saying "can't remember what he said, can't remember what it said" as an addition to the "they".

And I think in the beginning Maynard is making fun, he is saying names because the words sound like that. Like when the real lyric is jetship, in the next overdub he sings Jackie Chan, lower and upper lip, L. Ron Hubbard and so on...

That would also coincide for the 'repeat experience/Peanuts parents' overdub theory.

did a wicked jump there also while making the sound a-banana-da-banana
And that's when I opened up my bug eyes,

And all I could think was,

But does anyone else hear

I guess they were talking about my bug eyes,

And all I could think was,
"I hope Uncle Quark/Clark here doesn't notice that I pissed my fuckin' pants."

I know the Quark thing has come up before, and while Martin would make more sense, there's definately a sharp K sound there that makes it hard to concieve is coming from someone saying "Martin"

I think he says:
"So I lay this way
Like an apparition had
Hit me, cryin out..." etc etc

I don't think "I light his way like an aborigine" or "an apparition" makes much sense.
Given that this verse follows the bit about the alien doing a wicked jump and floating above him ("a-babba-nabba"), it almost makes sense that the hero drops to the ground (ala hit the fucking deck) and stayed there. Hence, later, the alien has to sooth him with spooning and, still later, helps him up:

"So he took my little hand
And invited me right in..."

Since we're all discussing it, here's what I think he's saying:

So light in his way (doesn't make sense too much sense though, maybe it's 'saw a light'?)
Like an apparition he had me crying out.

I really really really don't think it's aborigine, the "eee" sound that you're hearing is the beginning of "he".

I'm not claiming to be an expert on Maynard's brain but I don't think he's saying "did a wicked jump there also while making the sound a-banana-da-banana" - I think it's close to being right and I don't have a better suggestion but it just doesn't really make any damn sense.

Not that the whole a-banana-da-banana thing is going to totally cater to 'sense' but in the past when new Tool or APC albums have come out I learned that if a line I was hearing didn't make sense or sounded kinda corny just for the sake of phonetics, it was always wrong.

Maynard doesn't write poorly constructed sentences that don't make any sense. There's more to that line than we're hearing.

I think its worthwhile to continue to examine these lyrics and I'm not bashing anyone for any of their posts, but I do lamentingly note that it seems like those who moderate the "lyrics" section of this website have LONG SINCE LOST INTEREST in what anybody here on this thread has to say. I mean, they've still got stupid shit like "See them telling children/ they're telling children" as an official lyric to this song, I mean, "the Dead ain't tourin" was deciphered on this thread weeks ago, so there you go. Any further epiphanies are likely to just be ignored as the rantings of obsessed lunatics.

I kinda agree with this. I think it's "Don't know / Whoa no!", i.e. the character is alternating between the fact that he's forgotten the message, and his own emotional response to that fact. (The "Whoa" would be pronounced the same as "won't" but without the "-n't" - which if it IS there is drowned out by the music)

Probly impossible to tell which is correct, but I like listening to it this way better.

Go on. Disagree with me. Tell me I'm an idiot. You know you want to.

Okay, you're an idiot. Does that make you happy?

That aside, I listened to the 'a-bananna-da-bananna' line again today on different headphones than normal and with a different EQ setting. My suggestion is now this (which isn't too far from earlier speculations)

"...and breath that reeked
And did a wicked jump in the air in slow-mo making this sound: "a-bananna-da-bananna"
So when I heard about my bug-eyes, my gaping jow, and my sweatly L. Ron Hubbard upper lip..."

The 'so when I heard about my bug-eyes' part I'm not 100% on but on this new listening medium that's the closest I could come. It's not 'So when I opened up my bug-eyes'.

And did a wicked jump in the air in slow-mo making this sound: "a-bananna-da-bananna"
So when I heard about my bug-eyes, my gaping jow, and my sweatly L. Ron Hubbard upper lip..."

The 'so when I heard about my bug-eyes' part I'm not 100% on but on this new listening medium that's the closest I could come. It's not 'So when I opened up my bug-eyes'.

When i heard about my bug eyes? was it in the paper? was it on the News??? come on man that dont make sense at all. At least Floating up above my bug eyes, makes sense, and creates the image of an alien creature making an incredibly fast leap over his bed and sort of pauses in mid air while making that ab-a-ab-a-ab sound... yer eyes would be bug eyed too.

I know it doesn't make sense, which is why I said it was the closest I could come. I was speaking phonetically. I gave it about a dozen listens on headphones and *tried* to hear 'floating/floated up above my bug eyes' and I just couldn't make myself hear it. But I kept *hearing* 'when I heard about my bug eyes' even though that's not even what I thought he was saying in the first place.

Maybe that was the intention when recording the vocals so absolutely incomprehensible in places. Like saying 'you need to pay attention to things closely' - not just drug trips and messages from ET.

Also,

I have tried and tried to hear Birkenstocks... i just cant hear it. There is no K sound whatsoever, What i do hear is Burning something
Burning socks, burning sausage fuming... or something wierd like that.

This is the funniest lyric descifer i have read all night


Alrighty then... picture this if you will...

Time to de-wrap that chili dog
Eat a box of krispy kremes
We've ID'd an air pollutant [indiscernable] area 51
Contemplating the whole truth
Of people thinking we just took a flaming
Stale banana split the sky light, well
One opened up we'd expect to see a place like this
Code red i'll put us in a diamond setting
Right on my birkenstocks in the open
Holy fucking cats... holy fucking cats...

Let the x-file be entered
As some kind of blue creature
[indiscernable]
If you look at your appearance for a moment you can see
Another banana bourbon enema
Someone hovered above my buckeyes
My daily chore
Maybe i'll run over the upper lip but all i could think was
[indiscernable] fucking cats

The sewer line is waiting
Like an apparition he had me crying out
Fuck me! sodomy!
A dead head chemistry! bladder problems won't stifle me!
If i can't make it, people who are watching see.

And after calming me down with some orange slices and some needle spooning
He revealed to me a singular purpose, he said, you are the chosen one
The one who will deliver the message
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
And a warning for those who do not
Me, the chosen one... they chose me
And i didn't graduate from fucking high school

Shit the bed
Shit better
You better
You better listen

He looked right through me
With somniferous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means, must remember to write it down
This is so real,
Like the time that he floated away
See my heart is pounding
Cause this shit never happens to me
Can't breathe right now, it was so real
Like i woke up in wonderland
Also a bit terrifying
I don't want to be all alone when i tell this story
And can anyone tell me why? [indiscernable]
Will i ever be coming down?
This is so real, finally it's my lucky day
See my heart is racing
Cause this shit never happens to me

Can't breathe right now

You believe me don't you, please believe what i just said
See they're telling true and... and this wasn't all in my head
So they took me by the hand and invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin
Strapped down to my bed,
Feet cold and eyes red,
I'm out of my head,
Am i alive am i dead,
Can't remember what they said
God damn shit the bed
Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the one
Born to bear and read to all
The details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see
But i forgot my pen, shit the bed again
Typical
Strapped down to my bed,
Feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am i alive am i dead,
Sunkist and Sudafed, gyroscopes, and infrared won't help
Brain dead, can't remember what they said
God damn shit the bed
I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to me
Made out to be a hero
Can't remember what they said

[indiscernable] oh no
God damn shit the bed
