Lyrics

I have come curiously close to the end, though
Beneath my self-indulgent pitiful hole.
Defeated I concede and move closer. I may find comfort here
I may find peace within the emptiness. How pitiful.
It's calling me.
It's calling me.
It's calling me.
It's calling me.

And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping.
The moon tells me a secret. My confidant.
As full and bright as I am, this light is not my own
A million light reflections pass over me
It's source is bright and endless.
She resuscitates the hopeless
Without her we are lifeless satellites drifting.
And as I pull my head out I am without one doubt
Don't want to be down here feeding my narcissism
I must crucify the ego before it's far too late
I pray the light lifts me out before I pine away.
before I pine away.
before I pine away.
before I pine away.

So crucify the ego before it's far too late
To leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical
And you will come to find that we are all one mind
Capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable
Just let the light touch you and let the words spill thorough
Just let them pass right through, bringing out our hope and reason.

before I pine away.
before I pine away.
before I pine away.
before I pine away.

Title: Top 3, Easily    By: Anth

This is easily one of my top 3 favorite Tool songs. The song does an incredibly magnificent job of demonstrating that we as humans are not capable of being completely self-reliant, and that we must learn to depend on each other. If we are able to do so and rid ourselves of selfishness and ego, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.

One point of contention is that even though the "official" lyrics for one of the lines in the song is stated as:

Quote:
Without her we are lifeless satellites dreaming dreams

It is sung in the song as:

Quote:
Without her we are lifeless satellites drifting


Not only does it sound that way listening to the song, but it also makes more sense.
Title: Great Song...    By: Jaize

This is possibly my favorite tool song, I love the hagelian philosophy going on, the commentry on general state of ignorance and enlightenment... on the human condition.

Possibly the only tool song not open to incredibly varying interpretations and there is NO ONE that can tell me this song is about anal sex. 'cos its clearly not.
