A man known for his cryptic lyrics, Maynard Keenan fronts Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. Please share your interpretations of his songs/albums.
Each band has a different focus. Tool is a general self-exploration. A Perfect Circle tends to be an exploration of human depravity. Puscifer sounds like an odd blend of the two with a little more focus on collaboration with other artists.
"Hooker With A Penis" seems to be a response to a fan accusing the band of selling out after the release of "Sober." It may also refer to Fuck You Buddy/So Long Sucker game invented in 1950 by John Forbes Nash that requires making agreements with other players which are ultimately unenforceable. Finally, there's a reference to Genesis 1:28 ("be fruitful and multiply")
I love how he keeps them separate most of the time; when you toss in an album, you KNOW what the focus is.
Personally, I've found myself focusing on this song. Like a hindrence to enlightenment due to lack of correct action.
When it comes to Maynard, I personally try to listen to a song two or three times to see if it's meaningful or just him trolling. He does troll sometimes, and I love that.
But seriously, the Humbling River very directly translates into spiritual plataeus.
No. /x/ is regaining its sense of community. You are the one who is the ball licker.
He says society is fake, dead in every individual's selfish fret. Meanwhile others got them by the balls. There is nothing better than being alone. blah blah blah...fuck society...give me good old vintage wine...

There is much to be said about the music. a personal favorite of mine being disgustipated in the debut album Undertow. The repetitious and obsessive nature of the line "life feeds on life" and "this is neccasary" gives a spin on how we are lacking sanity in our society, on top of having the mentality of a serial killer that views everything as expendable. Also focusing on animal abuse and factory farming very much in the song with the sounds of sheep, pigs, and screaming animals. Another thing to note is the introduction of "reverend Maynard" preaching about justifying all of this death through religious beliefs. What is most chilling is the very very end of the song after several minutes of silence, maynard landlord at the time gives a chilling narrative. "
Because I was tired of being gone. Sorry you dislike me so much. Maybe there's something I can do to help you. I've been in that kinda mood lately. Squash the old bitterness and move on, bro.
I'm less bored, man. Besides, the last year and a half or so has been a very good year for my enlightenment. Yeah, I still shitpost for lulz sometimes, but everyone does.
I'm literally just anonymous with a trip, man. I like personal accountability, and since I do threads where I teach / actively magic people, they should know the exact faggot who they're trusting. That's why I leave the trip on.
Anyway, email me if you want, personally conversations on /x/ are kinda the highest order of shitting the board up and why most tripfags are hated.
Nothing wrong with a bit of funposting bruh. Like I said, you're less of a faggot now and it shows. We wouldn't be talking otherwise. I don't really do email or chat these days, so don't hold your breath on that front. Travel well.
