So familiar and overwhelming l y warm
This one, this form I hold now.
Embracing you, this reality here,
This one, this form I hold now, so
Wide eyed and hopeful.
Wide eyed and hopefully wild.

We barely remember what came before this precious moment,
Choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside...
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone in
This body makes me feel eternal. All this

Mine was followed by Cat Stevens! My wife must have playing with stations. Have to say I unliked Parabol because it's such a letdown when you reach for the volume button at the very end...

I have loved tool for a long time they are such a different, interesting band which makes them one of the best and yes please pandora add parabola to the end of parabol that's how it's ment to be.

Shame they don't play Parabol and Parabola as they are supposed to be played. Every time I listen to them it just sends chills down my spine. The transition is amazing
Report as inappropriate
Pandora Staff,
This is a two-track song, and it ends abruptly the way you have it... Can you fix it such that it plays the second track to the song as a whole, which follows immediately on the album? That's a serious shortcoming which I'm sure several people find annoying... :(
Thanks!

Metal band** auto correct lol

Tool is simply IMO the best all around wrap band of all time a And no matter how many times I listen to Parabol ~Parabola I get goosebumps, it's a shame that pandora doesn't just combine tracks as they should be heard...let' s start a campagne! The transition is almost orgasmic !

There's a licensing restriction that doesn't allow Pandora to play two tracks from the same album back-to-back . Blame the record companies, not Pandora.

This entire album should be thought of as one giant song once put in it's proper order. Come on Pandora have you yet to here the holy gift? Though I did just go from this song to Pink Floyd's Hey You so it's not all bad.
