H. Lyrics

What's coming through is alive.
What's holding up is a mirror.
But what's singing songs is a snake
Looking to turn this piss to wine.

They're both totally void of hate,
But killing me just the same.

The snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been.
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again.

And I feel this coming over like a storm again.
Considerately.

Venomous voice, tempts me,
Drains me, bleeds me,
Leaves me cracked and empty.
Drags me down like some sweet gravity.

The snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been.
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again.

And I feel this coming over like a storm again.

I am too connected to you to
Slip away, to fade away.
Days away I still feel you
Touching me, changing me,
And considerately killing me.

Without the skin,
Beneath the storm,
Under these tears
The walls came down.

And the snake is drowned and
As I look in his eyes,
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of those times.

I could have cried then.
I should have cried then.

And as the walls come down and
As I look in your eyes
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of the times
I have died
and will die.
It's all right.
I don't mind.

I am too connected to you to
Slip away, to fade away.
Days away I still feel you
Touching me, changing me,

And considerately killing me.

H is in fact is in fact about opiate detox. It also includes an overall theme about the bad encounters in life that we submit too.

This song is definitely about heroin, and that is the title, 'H.' I've even seen it titled that at a concert. I don't know where parenting comes in, but like most of Tool's lyrics, open to d. meaning

The meaning of the song pertains to the trials and obstacles to overcome facing parenthood, as a child who has come from an abusive and tramatic upbringing.

The opiate detox from heroin is nothing to mess with. Days later, weeks later still considerately killing me. One bang & you back to square 1. Cycle repeat. Promises to alleviate pain are empty
