this song is obviously about....

BLAIR, I mean come on...

"you are the chosen one" - blair'ian grandeur

"I didn't even graduate fucking high school" - no parallel needs to be explained.

"you believe me, donít you?
please believe what i just said" - blair asking for acceptance from the tool community

"This is so real
Finally it's my lucky day
See my heart is racing
Cause this shit never happens to me" - blair has obviously always been a loser.

"And invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin" - Blair's reaction when he first went on set maybe?

"can't remember what they said to me"-i think it's obvious the mother fucker has a good hookup

"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" - a reference to this being the bands last album? and blair transcribing it all but he's a fuck up, per se.

Re: this song is obviously about....

this is also why blair hasnt posted an update in two months, he realized this song is making fun of him and left toolband. either that or he leaked the album using the cable jacks in the back of his head and telekinesis.

Funniest (and maybe most accurate) interpretation of Rosetta Stoned..ever :)

I still believe this song has SOME KIND of connection to the sudden introduction of Blair. If this is the case, and this is some kind of surreal ode to Blair then this COULD be the last tool album(aside from a final live dvd/cd compelation, hopefully).
But if this isnt the end. then im wrong. only time will tell.

it is time to close the rosetta stoned forums and sticky this thread j.k

Re: this song is obviously about....

It sounded like Blair was some new guy Tool added to the band... I've been in Iraq for the past 8 months so I really have no fucking clue what's going on with my favorite bands. The whole "getting shot at" thing kind of distracted me.

Re: this song is obviously about....

ok at first i thought it was about blair but now i change my mind, now i think it is about a guy that found aliens and they told him to do something because he is the "chosen one" and he was gonna write it down so he could tell everybody but when he went to write it down he forgot what it was because he is an idiot

Re: this song is obviously about....

look at my last post, this helps explain it
"you are the chosen one"-self explanatory
"I didn't even graduate fucking high school"-self explanatory once again
"you believe me, donít you?
please believe what i just said"-no one believes him
"This is so real
Finally it's my lucky day
See my heart is racing
Cause this shit never happens to me"-the aliens came to him
"And invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin"-aliens once again
"can't remember what they said to me"-he cant remember what the aliens said to him
"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"-he tried writing it down but forgot what it was they had said to him

welll... mj does mention shitting the bed and waking up in wonderland whic could be the sureal, so maybe it was just someone who shared a dream that they had, got real detailed with and he just fucking exaggerated a little bit made fun of them and got everyone thinking that this is the last album that the world will be through in 2010 no more tool. ima go watch them play tommrowo night so ill let you know if theyre layin down probly not because they know this was deffinetly not enough tool to satisfy a follower of every word and beat

It's funny how this guy thinks his interpretation is one that no-one else has already stated. Not to mention it's pretty obvious by reading the lyrics.

Re: this song is obviously about....

I really think its about a dude that was tripping out in the desert. Blair even mentioned something about someone shitting themself and I believe another member alluded to it being about a friend of theirs freakin' out trippin' in the desert. I mean, the story goes right along with the introduction in Lost Keys, its simply the tripped out dude telling the doctor everything in on big stream of conciousness.

Yeah because wasting your time caring about the number of posts you have and what your level is at is WAY cooler and 1337 than actually using your fucking brain to make an interpretation of song that obviously has more meaning to it than just "a guy found aliens and they told him to do something because he is the "chosen one" and he was gonna write it down so he could tell everybody but when he went to write it down he forgot what it was because he is an idiot".
