maruku pried open forcefully
but i did too much damage in the process
there's blood all around me
and my vision is blurred

maruku a passageway underground leading to a fountain that showers above.
an archetypal place (what would that be called?)
are they throwing pennies down at me
driving over unnoticed
or calling into the deep for advice?
a chair of stone
a throne, a throne!

avian breakdown birdmad if bore the hole through just the right spot...

not quite severing the corpus callosum

not damaging any of the delicate grey matter on either side...

maybe then,
(but just maybe)
they'll get out of my head and leave me the fuck alone

no reason "To think for yourself you must question authority, and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness; chaotic, confused vulnerability, to inform yourself."

I love you Maynard:)

no reason oops.

i guess i should have chosen a different quote from the song.

i know those words aren't spoken by maynard, i was just referring to the song, and tool in general.

wasn't very clear, sorry.

Mahayana of heaven may be seen in the stars

astrology measures the cycles by relating the sun, moon and all other planets in our universe through the star signs [the zodiac], helping us to tell time in the larger cycle of the universe

no reason Shrouding all the ground around me
Is this holy crow above me.
Black as holes within a memory
And blue as our new second sun.
I stick my hand into his shadow
To pull the pieces from the sand.
Which I attempt to reassemble
To see just who I might have been.
I do not recognize the vessel,
But the eyes seem so familiar...
Like phosphorescent desert buttons
Singing one familiar song...

I've missed you so much.
So glad it's over.
I've missed you so much.
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running away?"

Xeneth Nobody but me seems to have gotten what the song's about, in this world. It makes reference the the book 'The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge' by Carlos Castaneda.

Dreaming of that face again.
It's bright and blue and shimmering.
Grinning wide and comforting me with it's three warm and wild eyes. (Something to do with the book, I can't remember)

On my back and tumbling
down that hole and back again
rising up and wiping the webs and the dew from my withered eye. (Symbolism, obviously, describing TRIPPING really bad, as Carlos does in the book. Figure out the rest)

{indistinct}
Many people think it says 'In Out In Out
Innnnnnnnnn!', but I think he's saying 'Stay out', part of his bad trip.

{6:52}
-A child's rhyme stuck in my head.
It said that life is but a dream.
I've spent so many years in question,
to find I've known this all along.- (Refering to the child's rhyme I always thought was certainly not writen by a child. You know, the one that says 'Fuckin' relax and take it easy, because nothing matters and this is just a dream'.)

'So good to see you.
I've missed you so much.
So glad it's over.
I've missed you so much.
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running away?
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running?'

-Shrouding all the ground around me.
Is this holy crow above me.
Black as holes within a memory
and blue as our new second sun. (Don Juan can physicaly shape-shift into a Crow and teaches Carlos how to do it, aswell. The 'new second sun' is a symbolic refernce to the alternate reality Carlos experiences during his trip.) I stick my hand into it's shadow
to pull the pieces from the sand.
Which I attempt to reassemble
to see just who I might have been.
I do not recognize the vessel,
but the eyes seem so familiar.
Like phosphorescent desert buttons
singing one familiar song... - (Referring to the point in the book where he asks Mescalito about his father, '..to see just who I might have been...', '...the eyes seem so familiar...'. 'Buttons', as in peyote buttons. Peyote is a cactus, and thus, grows in the desert. They glow in the desert moonlight)

'So good to see you.
I've missed you so much.
So glad it's over.
I've missed you so much.
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running away?
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running away?' (It's a bad trip, as you can see, but it's worth it. 'So glad it's over. I've missed you so much.' could either be a reference to seeing Don Juan after the trip is over, or to chasing Mescalito)

(Prying open my third eye. 4x)

So good to see you once again.
I thought that you were hiding.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing the tail of dogma.

(Opened my eye 3x) And there we were (Opened my eye 3x) And there we were

So good to see you once again
I thought that you were hiding from me.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing a trail of smoke and reason.

{whispering voices}

(Prying open my third eye. 10x) (The trip eventualy unnaturaly prys open his third eye, wich is dangerous, but he was lucky he could take it (it can drive you insane or cause the blood vessels in your brain to explode (killing you)))

Possibly my favorite of Tool's songs. If you take in note the names of a few other songs and lyrics, it becomes evident what exactly they're 'into'.
