Tool - Schism (Video & Lyrics)

"Pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion"

This has got to be one of the most messed up, strangest, craziest music videos I have ever seen! I suppose this is how musical geniuses see the world - a dark, scary place that is hungry for companionship. The lyrics are pretty sweet, too. So how do we feel about this song everyone? I know that it is a favorite for Tool fans - but I understand it might not be everyones cup of tea. Watch the vid and read the lyrics - it will all make sense.

Ahhhhh creeeeepy, while at the same time it brings back some good memories.


I know the pieces fit 'cause I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smoldering. Fundamental differing.
Pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion
Disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
The light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us
We cannot seem to reach an end crippling our communication.

I know the pieces fit 'cause I watched them tumble down
No fault, none to blame it doesn't mean I don't desire to
Point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over.
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between,
And the circling is worth it.
Finding beauty in the dissonance.

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second
Doomed to crumble unless we grow, and strengthen our

Cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion

Between supposed lovers. (x2)

I know the pieces fit. (x8)
