Alrighty, then ... picture this if you will.

10 to 2 AM, X, Yogi '___', and a box of Krispy Kremes,
in my "need to know" pose, just outside of Area 51
Contemplating the whole "chosen people" thingy
when a flaming stealth banana split the sky
like one would hope but never really expect
to see in a place like this.
Cutting right angle donuts on a dime
and stopping right at my Birkenstocks,
and me yelping...

Holy #ing sh!t!

Then the X-Files being,
Looking like some kind of blue-green Jackie Chan
with Isabella Rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of
vanilla Chig Champa
Did a slow-mo Matrix descent
Outta the butt end of the banana vessel
And hovered above my bug-eyes, my gaping jaw,
and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip,
and all I could think was:
"I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice
that I p!ssed my #in' pants."

So light in his way,
Like an apparition, [that]
He had me crying out,
"# me
It's gotta be
the Deadhead Chemistry
The blotter got [right] on top of me
Got me seein' E-mother#in'-T!"

And after calming me down
with some orange slices
and some fetal spooning,
E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose.
He said, "You are the Chosen One,
the One who will deliver the message.
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
and a warning for those who do not."
Me. The Chosen One?
They chose me!!!
And I didn't even graduate from #in' high school.

You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better listen.

Then he looked right through me
With somniferous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real
Like the time Dave floated away
See, my heart is pounding
'Cause this sh!t never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

It was so real,
Like I woke up in Wonderland.
All sorta terrifying
I don't wanna be all alone
While I tell this story.
And can anyone tell me why
Y'all sound like Peanuts parents?
Will I ever be coming down?
This is so real
Finally, it's my lucky day
See, my heart is racing
'Cause this sh!t never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I've just said!
See the Dead ain't touring
And this wasn't all in my head.
See, they took me by the hand
And invited me right in.
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin.

Strapped down [to] my bed
Feet cold [and] eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Can't remember what they said
God damn, sh!t the bed.

Hey ...

Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen
Sh!t the bed again ...
Typical.

Strapped down [to] my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Sunkist * and Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infrared
Won't help, I'm brain dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, sh!t the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be the hero
Can't remember what they said
Bob help me!
Can't remember what they said

[We] don't know, [and we] won't know

God damn, sh!t the bed!

cool video. thx for the post.


no reason for another post since this was so short, but to reply to Saabster-
yes i agree. I kept missing them for several years, but caught them twice in 1 week during the 10,000 Days tour, and both of those shows jumped easily into the #1 and #2 spots of all time best shows ive ever seen. 2 perspectives. 1 close on the floor, and the other in the middle way in the back. amazing light show. well the whole show was amazing.

Hehe. These guys put on, by far, one of the most visually stimulating concerts I have ever witnessed.

Also is quite interesting that they use the Fibonacci Sequence in Lateralus. Kinda old news, but the mysticism they use with their music helps put this band on my all time favorite lists. Wait, not saying I'm a devil-worshipper either, just saying they way they throw different beats and rhythms together is awesome to say the least.

yeah!! haha
i knew someone would quote that line!!!

it seems that the whole thing of forgetting a simple thing as a pen to write it all down is a good enough excuse to not have any evidence of what they saw or had done to them...

you would think that there would be more bands like this then bands not like this by now but no sigh we are still doing that 3 minute pop thing that goes absolutly no where but to a whole bunch of peoples wallets

if we wanted to stop it all we would haveto do is blow up all the make up factories, how quick the music business would be reverting to artists who can actually play instruments opposed to shells of people having their voices manipulated to pretend that they can sing whilst standing against a blue screen

get people into good music and art and then they can translate that into better living ideas.
pretty simple

Tool is the most thought provoking band to ever walk the face of this earth; the depth of their musicianship and creativity will never be matched.
