The Patient Lyrics

A groan of tedium escapes me
Startling the fearful
Is this a test?
It has to be
Otherwise I can't go on
Draining patience
Drain vitality
This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old
But I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith
And I'm still right here
But I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith
And I'm still right here
If there were no rewards to reap
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away
By now
Gonna wait it out
If there were no desire to heal
The damaged and broken met along
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away
By now
And I still may
I still may
Be patient
Be patient
Be patient
I must keep reminding myself of this
I must keep reminding myself of this
I must keep reminding myself of this
I must keep reminding myself of this
If there were no rewards to reap
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away
By now
And I still may
And I still may
And I still may
And I...
Gonna wait it out
Gonna wait it out
Wait it out
Gonna wait it out

The lyrics to this song highlight the particular thought process that occurs when one examines the very nature of life itself. After getting rid of all abstractions and sense of ego all that is left is time. I exist, waiting, anxious, spinning, for the sake of existence itself. Like a spiral.

Pardon me but anyone who says 'I love Tools music but hate the message' is obviously a tool themselves and isn't bright enough to be on Maynard's level. Give up and go listen to something mainstream.

Music and their words are like a painting. Subjective. That's the beauty. These words fit in perfectly to a text to my estranged daughter. Minus 'And I still may' Tool; so for the mind, inspirational.
