One and the same

So familiar and overwhelmingly warm
This one, this form I hold now

Embracing you, this reality here
This one, this form I hold now
So wide-eyed and hopeful

Wide-eyed and hopefully wild
We barely remember what came before this precious moment
Choosing to be here right now, hold on, stay inside
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone in
This body makes me feel eternal, all this pain is an illusion

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment
We are choosing to be here right now, hold on, stay inside
This holy reality
This holy experience, choosing to be here in

This body
This body holding me
Be my reminder here that
I am not alone in
This body
This body holding me
Feeling eternal, all this
Pain is an illusion

Alive!

In this holy reality
In this holy experience, choosing to be here in


This body
This body holding me
Be my reminder here that
I am not alone in
This body
This body holding me
Feeling eternal, all this
Pain is an illusion

Swirling round with this familiar parable
Spinning, weaving round each new experience
Recognize this as a holy gift and
Celebrate this chance to be
Alive and breathing, the chance to be
Alive and breathing

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality
Embrace this moment, remember: we are eternal, all this pain is an illusion

Parabol & Parabola - Tool (Tracks 6&7 on Lateralus)

----------

This song(s) is probably one of my absolute favorites.

It reminds me of a great love, the loneliness of suicide, a much needed hug, sex, depression, hope, and mourning. I have to stop myself from listening to it at times as I'll get misty. Maynard's (vocals) voice is haunting throughout. Everybody that I can see on songmeanings.com think that he is talking about something specific to them.

As I don't have many readers, probably most of you haven't heard the song. I really suggest you go out and _buy_ this CD. (Everytime you download a song illegally, God kills a kitten)

----------

I hope that all my tens of readers, if that, had a good Thanksgiving. I personally cooked for five people, how it turned into food for a medium sized outfit of Russian military, I'll never comprehend... 23lb turkey, 10lb ham, 15lbs of Mashed potatos, 3 pies, 10lb cheesecake (Amber kicks ass), and all the fixin's

My brain hurts from all the food, and leftovers for that matter. By the way, tryptophan is an urban legend. All I know is that I fell asleep, and hard, on our tile floor no less. One word: Ouch.

To play on the words of Tyler Durden ( Fight Club ): You are not your turkey, stuffing, or even your loosened belt.


Happy Shopping Day!!!!!
