Some salival666 character leaked these supposed lyrics onto songmeanings.com. I like them; obviously I don't know if they are really Tool.

Also, it is possible these have been leaked already and I am behind the times.

Tell me what you guys think:

Attach yourself to me
Together we can breathe
I donít want to think about what has come to pass
I donít want to think about what will come of us
I just want to live this moment knowing what I am

Living vicariously through you
We were meant to be (x2)
But not like this

I feed upon your words and blood when youíre gone
I sneak along the floor to see you trying to sanctify
And dispel the realities
Of your own mortality
Such a shame we canít accept whatís always coming
But I have seen your death my dear
And I cannot believe the shameless things weíve done
To bring us both this far.

The sun leeches into place
(Leeches) The calcium from your bones and you collapse
Displaced, and fierce, the loneliness of knowing that
Whatever could have been
Could always change
Thereís a loneliness to knowing that.

And someday I may resuscitate you
And truly then Iíd need to know if I was worthy
To lie beside you, die inside you here.

sound toolish... some lines really stand out to be similar with tool lyrics....such as "To lie beside you, die inside you here."

seems odd they use vicarious in the chorus... i dont think tool really has used the name of the song in the song... ya on undertow they did...sober, bottom... but they typically stay away from a format that is more mainstream like that.

decent poetry...

i guess it sounds sad and depressing...which goes along with what we have heard about nards lyrics this time around...

of course i dont believe it but its not totally unbelievable.


EDIT:

Yeah that calcium part is rediculous

that other dude posted some supposed lyrics. it appears that they dont match up.

of course they could be from other songs or they could both be fake so whatever...

in all fairness though, we have yet to have dealt with a whole song of fake lyrics - so we certainly areoverdue.

yeah if you arent being sarcastic then shame on you...

the whole Chorus-Verse-Chorus thing isnt necessarily applicable to Tool music... i mean maybe you have never heard anything by Tool tho so you are forgiven



EDIT


On a side note...i think its VERY unlikely that any lyrics can be considered official until Vicarious is released. As many of you know...MJK doesnt release the lyrics with the album/1st single, so the only way anyone would know these is if, they have heard the song (not likely)...or they know maynard (quite likely)

I like em. I can kinda hear Maynard singing "living Vicariously through you", but in any case if those aren't real lyrics, someone should put 'em in a song anyway. Aside from maybe the calcium bit. But even then, depending on how it's sung it might song kinda cool. One thing that I've always liked about Tool's lyrics is that aren't just the usual rhyme and sylablles mash ups like so many bands do... they tend to work a lot on the sounds of individual words, using assonance, dissonance, aliteration, onamatopea, all that 6th form English Lang shit. These lyrics appear to have an element of that, which makes me think that this could be the best fake ever.

I'm with Semp... but who the hell knows anymore. I'm just curious though - if these are or aren't the real lyrics, people will bitch and moan no matter what. It's pretty humerous. I can see the real lyrics being posted and people saying "Ah those suck ass, that bit about the blah blah is crap"... ah fuckin people sometimes...

I am not saying that I like the calcium bit per se. However, it kind of makes the lyrics more believable. Or, at least, makes them look less fake. That just isn't the kind of line someone would randomly make up to fake tool lyrics, methinks.

I certainly wouldn't place any money on them being real, though.

Vicarious lyrics

I don't want to be hostile.
I don't want to be dismal.
Vicarious!
But I don't want to rot in an apathetic existance either.
See
I want to believe you,
and I want to trust
and I want to have faith to put away the dagger.
Vicarious!

But you lie, cheat, and steal.
And yet
I tolerate you.
Veil of virtue hung to hide your method
while I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your praise and glory.
Vicarious!
Shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma
as I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your glory
while you
Lost Keys
lie, cheat, and steal.
How can I tolerate you.

Our guilt,our blame ,
I've been far too sympathetic.
Our blood, our fault.
I've been far too sympathetic.

I am not innocent.
You are not innocent.
Noone is innocent.
Vicarious!
I will no longer tolerate you
Even if I must go down beside you.
Because,
Noone is innocent.
Vicarious!

no i wasn't being sarcastic. 90% of songs use a repeated theme. it helps get the point across.

hence: I need to watch things die from a distance, vicariously I live while the world dies - repeated various times in the song.

goddammit im so dumb! shame on me!
