My second fav song off Lateralus... . Second only to Schism.

I'm waiting for a biopic about the making of Lateralus. I'd take lifetime, hallmark, even fox production quality and casting (imagine your fav out of work 90's actor)

If you like constant tool, get the deftones channel. They play more tool then the tool channel plays.

Rice I think you are wrong about Maynard's lyrics, very few songwriters inspire several different views into their music through only words, you are right about the band but Maynard's genius is disguising the obvious he tells you in aenima to read between the lines every song he writes has a hidden underlying meaning

All tool apc all day

i think people like to over exaggerate a little whenever they speak about maynard's skill as a lyricist. chill out, his writing is nothing outta this world. instrumental l y tho, yes, they are most definitely wild and unique

there's nothing more calming to a trouble soul than TOOL!

Sometimes one has to hear a song a few times before one understands why it's so awesome.... And yet not fully comprehend the message, should a message exist.
