Alien abduction?

It sounds like he is retelling an abduction experience. Listen to what he says, it's clear enough.

He talks about people not believing him, and the whole first part about Area 51 and seeing shit like the X-Files. It makes sense. Also, the Lost Keys intro could be about someone finding him on the side of the road naked etc. and bringing him to a hospital. I am totally convinced that this song is about someone being abducted now.

Re: Alien abduction?

I think this is another Bill Hicks inspired piece. I remember him joking the reason he stopped using drugs was that if aliens abducted him he wanted to be able to remember it.

Re: Alien abduction?

It could be an alien abduction while on LSD. Either way, there is LSD involved, cause this dude is fucking tripping.

Re: Alien abduction?

Blair gave us the hint A OR ET TESTS ON D. Rearranging them gives you Rosetta Stoned. A OR ET I'm gonna guess means Alien OR Extra Terrestrial and he said D stands for Dave. So Again, stating the obvious, Im guessing its talking about an Alien abduction of Dave. And Dave drives a van.

Nice find. That makes a lot of sense! Alien or extra terrestrial tests on Dave, its clearly the story of this song (with a dose of LSD heh).
By the way, who the hell is Dave?

No, Dave is actually the subject being tested by those aliens in his psychadlic trip. But the question remains, if Dave is the character who was trippin in this song, who is he? A metaphor to Maynard himself, or is he a real person? Maybe this is diggin too much...

I believe Dave is mentioned in the latest newsletter. Where BMB is talking about the rock visiting. They saw someone sitting on the rock. If i remember correctly, this persons name is Dave. I dont completely remember (i suppose i can go check :) but, yeah)

EDIT: "And then I saw Dave. At first I thought it was just a mirage, but there he was in his van with the Phish sticker, door beads, and embroidered tapestries." from the latest newletter. I think we may be on to something.

Re: Alien abduction?

It's called N,N DMT. end of story.
Check out Rick Strassman's DMT the Spirit Molecule for the study.

Here's an experience which I think is pretty cool

Re: Alien abduction?

Now why would DMT be absolutely sure over LSD or Psilocybin or Mescaline. Or any other Tryptamine or Phenylethylamine for that matter ?

Re: Alien abduction?

If it is a decoy album, I'll be surprised. I like this album...and it's really like getting two for one. So I'll be happy if this is a fake album, for the shear joy of getting two full Tool albums at once.
