OK, everytime I say that I'm a fan of Tool there's an army of people who look at me like they are starring at an alien, and just say "right... you nerd!". Many people claim that we are mentally ill and that we have a superiority complex. They even say, that even Tool hates its fans ("Thicks & Leeches", "Hooker with a penis"'s lyrics) Why do people hate us? I am not complaining in the style "oh no, they hate us", I'm just interested - we truly do not have superiority coplex and eventhought we are nerdy, we are not freaks. But does Tool really hate us? Are we some kind of freaks without realising it? One of the things that comes in my mind, is that we fully ignore to be Das Man, or in other words, the ordinary human being. We are trully nerdy in the others eyes - even sometimes in my eyes too. Is it in the lyrics? They do have strange texts, which even I find hard to understand. Is it in the music? In their style? In what? What's your opinion?
