The Batlord you don't have to read it if you don't want, it is nothing new that simple minds can't comprehend such deep and meaningful songs or god forbid read more than 5 words at once

Unknown Soldier who is PowerPunisher? Is that the Slipknot fan? What do I have to do with him? And FYI I already got banned once, for putting a funny link in a shoutbox. The guy who sent me an angry message and banned me obviously didn't find it so funny, but damn it was worth it.

I'm just having fun making something out of nothing cause I finally got some free time.

I think you think too much man. Sometimes just take the words for what they are sometimes and not everythings metaphorical. Even when they are uts rarely that deep but thats just my opinion.

i'm going to second this statement, particularly in light of the fact that it was your buddy explaining maynard james keenan's lyrics to you that ignited your desire to hunt down deeper meanings in songs. the lyrics in tool's songs have a lot of thought put into them, so much so that one could say they are designed to never give the listener a straight idea of what's being said. they're cryptic and mysterious and so on... i wouldn't approach all lyrics in this way, because most writers don't attempt writing songs that work to make you think for yourself.

A little off topic but after seeing you mention tool I was wondering if there are any good websites with interpretations of Maynard's lyrics. I'm a big tool fan and have always thought he was a pretty unique lyricist but I've never spent much time interpreting his lyrics. Id like to see some interpretations.

Bloozcrooz and zevokis - Don't get me wrong, I listen to Tool too and I know their lyrical style. My friend has enlightened me by showing me his interpretation of Stinkfist(which I thought was so obviously about anal fisting) so I now realized that there is more music with deep subtle messages that need to be revealed. Limp Bizkit always interested me, I always knew that there is something different in their music, almost supernatural. But I didn't have the ability to comprehend it until now. You should listen to Nookie 93 times in a row to get a taste of it and feel its magic. Why 93 times? I'll tell you when the time comes.

blastingas10 - Let me google that for you

Hehe just kidding but seriously, it wouldn't have killed you to search it up yourself. Here's a decent site:

MyName, don't listen to them, man. Some of these jokes haven't started a music-oriented thread in months.

I just thought that since you have such a complex mind that I would point out your failures in capitalization and punctuation so that you could fix them and expand your mind.

Limp Bizkit is a warning about what happens when you can't get over an ex

Start with Three Dollar Bill Y'All, where Fred Durst is angry and out for blood. You have songs like Counterfeit and Nobody Loves Me exploring his heartbreak and working through his bitter feelings. We understand Durst is angry and we can sympathize, even empathize, with him.

Then you move onto Significant Other which is a more emotional album. Remnants of his anger remain with songs like Break Stuff, but Nookie and Re-Arranged are the more introspective sides of Durst. He knows he's been hurt and he's trying to figure out how it came to this. Maybe tracks like No Sex can help him better understand? We can still feel for him and hope this is the last of this woman in his life before he can finally pick up the pieces and move on.

By the time we reach Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water, it's starting to become a bit overdone. Durst has had his time to vent and now his outbursts are starting to feel a little pathetic. He wants us to think he feels fulfilled by going out and getting laid but we can all see through the macho facade. Those "hot mammas, pimp daddies, and the people rollin' in the Caddies" (Rollin') give away the joke the way "Why did I have to go and meet somebody like you? Why did you have to go and hurt somebody like me? How could you do somebody like that?" (Boiler) gives away what's really on his mind when he goes to sleep at night.

We close with Results May Vary, which is Durst simply losing it. Commonly considered one of the worst albums of all time, Results May Vary demonstrates Durst succumbing to such depravities as asking to sniff a woman's panties, lashing out at a woman for not wanting him to check her out, and him subsequently apologizing because "damn you're so hot" (Eat You Alive). I don't think any further analysis is necessary.

tl;dr Durst gets dumped and goes through the motions but stays bitter about it and eventually goes insane, yelling at women for not letting him be a creep and apologizing because he finds them attractive.

Unrelenting - Stopped reading after I realized you thought Counterfeit is a song about a broken heart. Do you know what is a counterfeit? Do you know that band members themselves said what is Counterfeit about? And no, its not about a woman.

I'm sorry, but I can't take you for serious if you don't know pure facts and try to impose your opinion as an objective truth.

Face - Sure, just give me the name of the song. It won't be soon though, I don't have much time :/

TheBig3 - Thank you, even though I'm not sure you're serious :P

The Batlord - I appreciate it and feel free to point out any grammar mistakes I make. English is not my mother language and I don't pay that much attention to grammar cause I write really fast so mistakes happen, especially when I start making big sentences
