@kibblez..,T h e r e is a God trust me I wouldn't be here if there weren't!!!
Their is a beginning too everything call it god, Budha, big bang, I just simply call it the source of everything a spiral of never ending time, creation intelligent creation( kibblez )
Vincent there is no god sorry to burst your bubble
I missed bands like TOOL and KORN back in the 90s. I guess that's because the only thing I was into back then was the music of HEROIN. I let that s**t rob me of everything. I thank GOD that He has given it all back..and so much more...
Maynard has been touring ...all 3 bands played together in LA not long ago
I've always considered this to be a good track, by a great group, but in fact, it is quite phenomenal!

You hate on me, I hate back more and harder
We need more tool! Maynard where the hell are you?!?
Matthew Rosewall Lateralus is a term that means to the side. I believe, in this context, it means to widen as in, widening your perspectives , consciousnes s , etc.
Great song but vicariousis my favorite
The song that introduced me to Tool, and still one of my favorites. Incredible song, awesome band.
Funny how I thought they said ladder Alice the first time I heard the name of this album- song. Never got around to looking it up, anyone know what lateralus means
Did I find my self deep within the message

Just listen to the song. Over analyzing over thinking separates the body from the mind....
Feel connected
I had used my copy of Lateralus and Cool Edit Pro to take out the silences between tracks and put the songs in the following order: 6,7,5,8,4,9, 3 , 1 0 , 2 , 1 1 , 1 , 1 2 , 1 3 . The transition from Parabola into Schism blew my mind, as the plucks, probably dismissed by listeners as a drawn out rant of an ending, perfectly transition into the beginning of Schism. This cd has a different true track order listed above

F**king poetry man. Incredible song writing.
This is one of those songs that takes your breath away! So complex. Like Iron Butterflies
Reaching out to embrace anything that may come.
One of my favs from them. Lyrically it is so profound and beautiful. Thank you Maynard and the boys of Tool! your guys are a gift
This is worth 9 minutes of my life.
Quite possibly one of the greatest compositions ever to be written.
I will always love you oh that is so deep infinite possibilitie s
I ♡ the intro of this song
Ride the spiral to the end, may just go where no one's been........ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The Fibonacci sequence.❤️

Either way it's a great song. Tools best!

Someone told me that this song was based on the Fibonacci sequence
pump the sacrum and ionize the spinal fluids sending them to bathe the brain in charged particles... swing on the spirallll

This song is a real kick in the marbles - I love it!
Just saw them play the greatest concert of my life in HTX.
The level of complexity within this song is so much more than anyone here has been able to describe. My professor stated he could do a semester on Lateralus and 46&2 alone and have half the class fail with their love for todays pop music "artists". I met him after class and mockingly scorned him for generalizing me into a group. He said "you are but a dim light in the depths if an abyss". You should search for Dave Grohl's comment on American Idol, dead on.
So I saw them live in S.F they played this song... understateme n t would be best night of my life. TOOL WILL FOREVER BE GODS!
favorite album
Amazing band.
Great song!

10k days was great.
They need a new album soon 10,000 days was alright but i want new stuff been forever since that album. Tool just rocks hard and are great live
Havent seen them live since the played a small venue in San Diego to promote their garage recording. Before they had a label.still have the cassette.
I'm seeing these guys I'm march I can't wait gunna be my first tool concert!
I saw them when they toured for this album...it was the 1st of 3 Tool concerts & it was f**king awesome...it was in DC where the Wizards & Caps play... The 2nd was at a fairly small venue in Daytona Beach & the 3rd was in Baltimore ...every show was incredible.. . b e s t band on the planet hands down
I love that song
One of the best out there
By far their best song ever and that is saying quite a lot!
