Yes, you are a druggie and the drugs will never fill that void; EVER. I was in your shoes a few months back, completely lost. But I meditated even though I found all the spiritual stuff to be bullshit and I began to find myself and open my third-eye to those things that were making me unhappy (my void(s)). I kept meditating at sunrise (awesome experience), noon and finally before going to bed even though I hated it. You have to actually LEARN how to meditate. Maybe it's time you do some meditation of your own and look at your true self and open YOUR third-eye and see that force face to face. Though I am still an atheist, I still see a personal/spiritual being within me and no one can refute that. What I find to be the greater force is you and me and all that is living on earth, our solar system, our galaxy, OUR UNIVERSE. (Might I suggest you 'youtube' videos of the vastness of our universe). Let me tell you…this song IS WHAT IT IS and if you can't find the message when it's right in front of you, the lyrics themselves, then you are still in that dark place you think you escaped. Embrace this moment. Remember; we are eternal,all this pain is an illusion.
WARNING | Reviewer: Josh | 3/17/11
Ive lost myself in a void of trying understand, and im sure im not the only one. Its to easy to lose yourself trying to figure out, not so much the song, but this greater force. I love tool, I now do drugs to keep me out of that dark place and I hated it because it was like being subconcious for months on end.
Im aware a great deal of people will argue this and just call me a druggie, but im just putting out a warning that its to easy to lose your self.

dude have you heard the beginning of third eye, where bill hicks rants about the same fucking thing and ends the sentence with "now, here's tom with the weather." Something i did not know was that maynard dabbled in comedy. so now i segue to your comment being funny.

For me this song speaks to me in a personal experience I had. While contemplating life on shrooms I had this overwhelming experience of my mind and body separating into to entities. There I realized that our spirit and body have a symbiotic relationship (Sometimes parasitic). i.e "this body holding me." This Life is just an experience we must all go through to grow spiritually. this holy reality.
great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/15/10
i think this song is related to the jungarian theory but also can be interpretated in another way just like the experience of being alive and take the things as that. experiences, realize that you are more than just a body. and not all the times you need to be on acid or fucking high to get to that conclusion,cmon,does it mean that the human being needs to be fucking wasted on chemicals and weeds just to realize his own self? i don't think so,the people just need to use their brains a little more and maybe then apreciate this as it should be.

this song is spiritual in nature, and moved me deeply. "a chance to be alive and breathing" - an especially poignant thought for someone like me who survived cancer six years ago, and by all rights shouldn't even be here. i find it very interesting that the person demanding we "repent" wasn't sure enough in their misguided faith to leave their name. come on man. what are you afraid of. "it's not like you killed someone".....
:D | Reviewer: :D | 11/27/10
This song, in my opinion is about a kind if philosophy I was taught earlier. Basically that, "matter is merely energy condensed, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there us no such thing as death life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves..." (bill hickes) so if you think about life as if we are all one consciousness and this body is just holding u in this world that isn't real that's why pain is an illusion. I would go on but I'm sure it's self explanatory from here..

just as the song holds one title, it holds one meaning.
all those who are still insecure about this , please go take some acid.
maybe then you'l have a bad trip and finnaly understand the purpose of this song. YES things can have a purpose and a meaning. Iv just connected the two. goodnight

they are more religious than you might think...the reject many christian values that they beleive to be mudane or stupid or redundant but they definately do have a certain spiritual side..listen to the song Right in Two.."angels on the sideline, puzzled and amused. Why did father give these humans free will..." and "repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven concious, of its fleeting time here." my point is they are not christian but they do spend some time contemplating the idea of a greater power...and wats with the heroin crap??
Not necessarily religious. | Reviewer: Lys | 8/23/10
This song could have hundreds of meanings. But the lyrics are in fact "holy reality". The word "holy" does not mean automatically that it is Christian. In all reality, the word "holy" really pertains to any religion. And after everything is said and done, religion is merely opinion. Not one is right or wrong, it's just an expression of how you personally feel and what you think. And personally, I feel that this song is about love.
anyone read mine? | Reviewer: Syreus | 8/20/10
A big part of Tool's lyrics is that they are, for lack of a better word, vague: widely interpreted. Whether I got the lyrics wrong or not, the song has exponentially more meaning for me if it's a "hole in reality" as opposed to "holy reality". In fact, it seems to me to just make more sense. like someone said, Tool is not Christian. What the heck meaning could "holy reality mean? to recognize this moment as a HOLE in reality just seems far more meaningful. Any thoughts?
addendum | Reviewer: Syreus | 8/20/10
I meant to qoute Kurt Vonnegut Jr's "Slaughterhouse 5" The Tralfamadorian view of time is the perfect example of what I believe this song is hinting at. Even if I'm wrong, pretend that it is "hole in reality" and the message becomes positively transcendant. anyone who has'nt read it, REALLY should.
THIS TO TO "fluffy" | Reviewer: Chelle | 7/15/10
Did you really just say that maynard is addicted to heroin? are you fucking serious?! do you even know what you are talking about? where did you hear that from because you are SO FUCKING WRONG. Maynard believes you should experiment with drugs, everyone does, but in an interview, which i can quote and show you the link, HE SAYS " TAKE A DRUG ONCE, SPEND THE NEXT TEN YEARS GETTING BACK TO THE STATE OF MIND.." also in that interview he says that he has NEVER had a problem with drugs or alcohol and has experimented as much as the next guy. CHECK YOUR FUCKING SOURCES DUDE. This coming from another "tool fan" is ashaming. DO YOU EVEN LISTEN TO THE MUSIC, or UNDERSTAND HIS LYRICS. GO BACK TO SCHOOL!
....WOW | Reviewer: Fluffy | 7/1/10
Are all you religious assholes serious?? do you really think TOOL is a christian band?!? have you ever listened to Opiate? or just about ANY songs from APC???? HOLY FUCKIN SHIT PEOPLE!! Now, everyone talking about "birth"... i somewhat agree with you. Maynard is severely addicted to heroin, and i believe this song has something to do with that.
ummm | Reviewer: Brian Williams | 5/10/10
odd how people translate these lyrics, i just think its a message about our souls existing on this physical plane for a limited time before we transcend into other forms of energy.
Forget the bullshit, pain, hatred and fear and instead love. Smile and enjoy life.
