"The Pot" is a song by American rock band Tool and was released as the second single from their fourth studio album 10,000 Days (2006). According to Adam Jones, it is confirmed to be about hypocrisy and is a double entendre that refers to both drug intoxication and believing oneself to be above others, deriving from the phrase "pot calling the kettle black". It became their first song to top the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2008. According to The Rock Radio, a music video was filmed during the holiday season in 2006; however, it has not surfaced. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

The Pot

Who are you to wave your finger?

You must have been outta your hair

Eye hole deep in muddy waters

You practically raised the dead

Rob the grave to snow the cradle

Then burn the evidence down

Soapbox house of cards and glass so

Don`t go tossin` your stones around

You must have been high

You must have been high

You must have been

Foot in mouth and head up ass-hole

Whatcha talkin` `bout?

Difficult to dance `round this one

`til you pull it out, boy

You must have been so high

You must have been so high

Steal, borrow, refer, save your shady inference

Kangaroo done hung the jury with the innocent

Now you`re weeping shades of cozened indigo

Got lemon juice up in your eye, eye

When you p*ssed all over my black kettle

You must have been high

You must have been high

Who are you to wave your finger?

So full of it

Eye balls deep in muddy waters

f**kin` hypocrite

Liar, lawyer; mirror show me, what`s the difference?

Kangaroo done hung the guilty with the innocent

Now you`re weeping shades of cozened indigo

Got lemon juice up in your eye, eye

When you p*ssed all over my black kettle

You must`ve been...

So who are you to wave your finger?

Who are you to wave your fatty fingers at me?

You must have been out your mind

Weepin` shades of indigo

Trapped without a reason

Weepin` shades of indigo

Liar, lawyer; mirror, for you, what`s the difference?

Kangaroo be stoned. He`s guilty as the government

Now you`re weeping shades of cozened indigo

Got lemon juice up in your eye, eye

Now when you p*ssed all over my black kettle

You must`ve been

High

High

High

High

Eyeballs deep in muddy waters

Your balls deep in muddy waters

Ganja Police

You must have been out your mind
