And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping the moon tells me a secret - my confidant, as full and bright as I am this light is not my own and a million light reflections, pass over me; its source is bright and endless, she resuscitates the hopeless - without her we are lifeless satellites drifting and as I pull my head out I am without one doubt, don't want to be down here feeding my narcissism, I must crucify the ego before it's far too late I pray the light lifts me out - before I pine away
So crucify the ego before it's far too late, to leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical, and you will come to find that we are all one mind - capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable, just let the light touch you and let the words spill through, and let them pass right through; bringing out our hope and reason, before we pine away...
Maynard calling the fans ''insufferable retards'' who he is sorry he can't help because they're 'too serious' was absolutely hilarious, reminds me of axl rose telling his paying fans to ''SHUT THE FUCK UP'' so he could rant about some deranged personal shit from his upbringing. Gotta respect guys who demand the fans understand their frustrations they hold for their own fans modest expectations.
I agree that Maynard is a bit...ah....different? Compared to the other 3, when it comes to personality.
But my concern is how their next work can be average, even after all this time.
"10.000 Days" was fine but nothing more, in my opinion. I caught myself enjoying the instrumental and videos more than the lyrics, for the first time.
I am hoping for the inspiring and inspired work they are capable of doing next time.
It's been clear these past years that Maynard is one of the biggest problems to Tool, the ''I don't care'' attitude, several other projects, and the band have been jamming without him to make the album move forward. So yeah, he is a asshole, but a asshole that I learned to love, so don't come with this bullshit ''I'd rather wait another ten years than them releasing something they're not happy with''.
Maynard's growing his hair that's why it's taking so long, his wigs have been rejected by the bowling ball smoothness of his cranium, everyone calm down and pray for the slaphead to become a hippy haze.
