TOOL - Reflection lyrics

I have come curiously close to the end, down
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...

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 and
A million light reflections pass over me

Its 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 wanna 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.

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 through
And let them pass right through
Bringing out our hope and reason ...
before we pine away.


:mushroom2:Do any of you feel the same meaning and beauty within these lyrics as I do? :mushroom2:

"And you will come to find that we are all one mind
Capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable."

That has shaped a lot of my perception of the world. Absolutly beautiful, and with the music, it's really intense.

IMO that song is the absolute best song to listen to on any drug, it's so hypnotic.

First post here , but I just want to express what a special band tool is , and if anyone out there has not gotten a chance to see these guys preform live you are missing out. And yess danny carey the drummer is unreal!

Great song.. now forgive me for straying..

But do any of you fans wonder what the new album will sound like?
I mean, going from Undertow to ?nima, I could never have imagined how the sound and feel of their music would evolve like that. Same for ?nima---->Lateralus.

Some bands are typical, all their songs sound the same, from one album to the next.

But TOOL... they evolve with each new album, bringing music to a new level, into another dimension. I get giddy like a school girl just thinking about! And I'm not even a girl.

All I know about the sound of the next album is that it's supposed to be heavier than lateralus.

Rumor has it that it's going to be a jug band. Danny will play the spoons, Adam will be the lead washboard, Justin will use bottles with different amounts of liquids. Maynard will switch between a jawharp and doing a jig, after being inspired by Ashlee Simpson.
