Poking fun at all the esoteric talk?

All the paranoid ranting in this song makes it seem like they're poking fun at the esoteric nature surrounding Tool.

And if not, I'm gonna pretend that's the case because it makes me happy.

Glad to see that's how other people see it, too.

Good observation. I didn't think of that at first listen, but now it seems like a very plausible meaning.

I think it also pokes fun at the kids who think drugs are the only way to understand Tool or who assume that Tool writes all their songs while stoned. "I forgot my pen."

Danny's interest in the occult is very deep, and pervades much of their music. But they do like a laugh ;-)
