Tool - Parabola (Live) [HD 720p]


Tool - Parabol/a live @ Wilkes Barre,PA (24.9.2001) -HQ AUDIO- [2 Cam Mix]. Thanks ro the tapers and Hezlo. Lyrics: 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, I 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. Twirling 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. This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality. Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal. All this pain is an illusion.



Socratic Paradox
You don't even need drugs to experience Tool. They ARE the drugs.

It takes skill to get the vocals in this song right live, especially in parabol, Maynard is a god.

Maynard lokks like gollum :D
GSHdesign
Man this tour was tremendous...I saw them the same week in Philly and they melted my face....opening with The Grudge... The passion in his voice is evident during this time in the band's existence.
Ice Kold Killa
One of my favorite songs of all time.

After sixteen years, this song still makes me feel so emotional. It reminds me of how it's possible and makes me long to merge spiritually with someone else and experience egoless and timeless, unconditional acceptance. This song gives me peace, when I think of loved ones who have suffered at life's pounding away, how I myself have suffered, to have this reminder that suffering isn't forever. It is real, but it passes. I listened to this song on repeat in my head, like a mantra, to dissociate from the pain of getting tattoo'd for 3 hours. I didn't ever cry out, squirm, or tap out for a break. Fvck my (fvcking flaming eye) tattoos. Most Tool songs resonate similarly. I remember when I was a mid-teen, and "Flood" resonated more than any song on Undertow. My whole life as a Navy kid had been nomadic, and the sands were forever shifting under my feet. I was touched with a deep understanding that it wasn't going to end, and that being attached to any place or any social belonging or item or belief (basically anything) was futile. And that I needed to be prepared for the changes, whether I brought them on myself or they were imposed, especially including the effects of climate change. Not to be a naysayer, a doubter, full of "blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change." For me that means trying to learn how to grow my own food in a small space. Got a water barrel. I keep rice and a first aid kit on-hand. This to me, seems to be the core message of most of what MJK's producing these days, and I thank him for these thematic reminders. It conveys so much hope to me, and it's a message I try to share with the people I love. Thank you, Tool, for the tremendous art you've given us. It has sustained me through so many days, with it's multiple layers of craftsmanship and musicianship, humor/ego-destroying self deprecation, metaphor, spiritual renewal, and introspection... My deep appreciation to you all, and Shine On.

Monstrous riff 7:46

While it's unfortunate that Maynard will probably never be able to rock out like this in a concert ever again, I'm glad to have been able to see him at his absolute peak, this was MJK feeling every fibre of this song within him and projecting it out onto the crowd. It makes perfect sense why he would prefer to perform in the darkness with a back-drop like that. He just wants to emulate the same feelings he would feel in the studio so that everyone can experience it like he does. At heart I do believe that Maynard feels as much as a fan of his own music as those in attendance are.
Kustom Hooligans
That song was built to be played live!
Grant Fraser
For the first 3 mins I honestly thought he was naked
Luis Martinez
If the philosophers like Descartes or the Existentialists could choose a song that described how they felt, I know it would be this one.
social ali3n

InsanityOfTheFuture
Amazing performance! I especially love the lighting, the camerawork and visuals which give this the appearance of the late 90s. Maynard's voice then elevates this to a religious experience. 
Thomas Lucero
oh that guitar riff at 7:47 sends chills ..feels like no other dam that feels good
Tom Stephens Jr
thanks for all of them I feel like I'm in touch with him and I enjoy it and rock on!

Bad ass! I love you man! Thanks once again for some great shit!
DrCrowie
FYI: Predominately Adam's riffs are in Drop-D tuning, this is one of the few that are Drop-B, which is what gives it that super heavy sound. Another one I can think of right now is Prison Sex, also Drop-B
Connor Wilde

Lyndon McArthur

MJK was performing in his underwear? oh well, doesn't matter this song is amazing, and those visuals looked really cool, his vocals are just brilliant and go extremely well with the song, Tool are an awesome band and I wish there were more bands & artists like them instead of the Justin beiber bullshit that is around today

"Lateralus" was one of my purchases/forays down the rabbit hole that is metal music. After that, I've been a bon-a-fide metalhead since 2002. I'm not a purist by no means but I enjoy heavy metal a lot. Bands like Suffocation (#2 on a top-10 personal favorite death metal bands list), Necrophobic (Swedish Death Metal), and a few others in the extreme metal side of things. Lately these past few years I've been digging my heels into djent-style progressive metal/metalcore/whateverdafuckyacallit, mostly sticking to bands like TesseracT, Vildjharta, Humanity's Last Breath, Monuments, Flux Conduct, Messhuggah, Periphery, Circles and a few others these past 5 years. Can't name a favorite band but I do enjoy the style.
Christmas Ham
Tool will never be this amazing ever again wish i was at this show in 2001...

Tool is like edibles
DTOM 1776
too bad nobody in the music industry makes art anymore. music as art will die with these guys. i hold faith in gojira. they might be the last of a dying breed
chrisav savy
Vocal tone is religious.
Clint Walker
I wonder if MJK listens to THE DOORS. To me he's a MODERN DAY MIRROR IMAGE of J.MORRISON. MJK probably wouldn't like this comparison.
Jayansh Singh
Tool channels the unsayable so masterfully. Massive respect and admiration.
Gerald Henderson
In my opinion Maynard has a very captivating voice when it comes to his singing.
