This song takes on new meaning for me...

Tool - The Patient

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
But I'm still right here
And I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith
And I'm still right here...

Gonna wait it out...
Be patient...

If there were no rewards to reap
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would have 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 have walked away
By now

And I still may
I still may

Be patient...

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 have walked away
By now

And I still may...

Gonna wait it out...

What's the meaning..?

Well, you'd probably think me silly for believing such...

I think you silly for plenty of things, heh.

You should know me by now, and believe in me..

all but the worst songs have great meaning-- but Keenan's lyrics tend to be so dense and wide and deep that they can drown me. There are so many questions raised by his words, and myriad answers to even one of the questions raised by just one song.

Lacking the sweet intimacy, or any sort of validation, we'd all have walked away by now.
