Here are some really inspiring lyrics in my eyes, on the concept of patience....something not often thought about.....and the struggle it can create inside you...so i wanted to share

Band is Tool, song is The Patient, and lyrics are written by Maynard James Keenan..enjoy!

Oh . . .

Oh . . .

Oh . . .

Oh . . .

Oh . . .

Oh . . .

 

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, givin' blood, keepin' faith and I'm still right here

But I'm still right here, givin' blood, keepin' faith and I'm still right here

 

Wait it out

Gonna wait it out

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'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

And I still may

 

Be patient

Be patient

Be patient

 

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 (I must keep reminding myself of this)

No loving embrace to see me through (I must keep reminding myself of this)

This tedious path I've chosen here (I must keep reminding myself of this)

I certainly would've walked away (I must keep reminding myself of this)

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 album is Lateralus. The first track is THe Grudge another great one that talks about "lettting GO". Maynards lyrics are really positive on this album

 

That was the album where they lost me. It sounded to me like they abandoned their hooks and got bogged down in technicality. I think maybe I'll go back to it just to check out the lyrics. Thanks!
