... or my take on them.
help me make them better.

you
you
you
you
you believed
you believed in moments (movements?) unconcieved
you believed in me

a passionate spirit
uncompromised
boundless and open
her light in her eyes dim
in the divide???

broken
broken
fell at the hand
so theres no one surrounding us and
it was you who faithfully served
what have i done?
to be sent to an angel?
what have i done to be worthy?

daylight dims leaving cold flourescence
difficult to see you in this light
please forgive this selfish question
but what am i to say to all these ghouls tonight
she never told a lie, well she might have told a lie, but never lived one
didnt have a life, didnt have a life, but surely saved one.
so, well, alright now, its time for us to let you go.

You believed
You believed in moments not conceived
You believed in me

A patient in spirit
Uncompromise
Without us in your heart
A light in your eyes that
Ends all lies

Vacant, broken
Fell at the hands of
Those moments that I wouldnít see
Cause you, who faithfully served,
What have I done to be a son to an angel
What have I done to be worthy

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescence
Difficult to see with this light
Please forgive this selfish question, but
What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight
She never told a lie
Well might of told a lie
But never lived one
Didnít have a life
Didnít have a life
But surely saved one
Alright, now itís time for us to let you go

"It was you who prayed for me,
So what have I done to a son to an angel?"

as opposed to the previous interpretation??

I know...I haven't broken down yet, but I know I will one time when I listen to it soon...I definately will when I hear it live...I will be a mess. I avoid thinking of how Maynard must feel, and must have felt - not forgetting what he has sung about her to date, and possibly what he might have wished to say without the chance. Most of all I avoid thinking about how I would be devistated if my Mother died...I swear I have the greatest mother in the world. When I see this live, I will let it all out...

...for Maynard...with Maynard.

You are nothing but another person just like us MJK. And our hearts break for you just like it does for any of our other brothers and sisters in this massive world. We are your collective shoulder.

[=TrasH=]
04-20-2006, 06:14 PM
These are definately the accurate lyrics!!!

I disagree.

"Cause you, who faithfully served,
What have I done to be a son to an angel"

This is not a sentence. Because you who faithfully served [are/did/etc] what? And I just dont hear it.

Ironically, you have nearly compiled the entire collection of lyrics I completely disagree with.

But hey, I might be wrong. It definately wouldn't be the first time.

Fell at the hands of those moments that I wouldn't see
Cause you're full, faithfully served
What have I done to be a son to an angel
What have I done to be worthy

The daylight dims leaving cold flourescence
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question
And I don't know what to say to these ghouls tonight
She never told a lie, well
Might have told a lie
But never lived one
Didn't have a life
Didn't have a life
Surely saved one
So, I'm, alright now

Just one thing, make sure you don't put "might 'of' told a lie" instead of "might 'have' told a lie" otherwise it makes no sense.

It pisses me off when people type 'of' when they mean 'have'.

Her light in her eyes dimmed -
The end of life.

Vacant.
Broken.
Fell at the hands of those moments I wouldn't see.
It was you who prayed for me -
So, what have I done
to be a son to an angel?
What have I done
to be worthy?

Daylight dims,
leaving cold flourescence.
Difficult to see you in this light.
Please forgive this selfish question,
but,
what am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?
She never told a lie,
well,
might have told a lie,
but never lived one.
Didn't have a life.
Didn't have a life.
but surely saved one.

So I'm alright now,
it's time for us to let you go.

I believe these are 100% correct. Although, I am having trouble hearing Vacant/broken. I hear just two Brokens, but regardless, if most of you think it is Vacant, broken, then it is probably true. I'm a little hard of hearing.

did anyone else notice that flapping sound at the beginning of wings for marie and also at the end of 10,000 days? im guessing it represents judith/her wings/flying up to heaven?

Yeah, it's cool. After reading someone's suggestion about it on this forum I listened to the beginning of Viginti Tres again and that noise can easily be imagined as giant wings flapping towards the "voice of God".

cool and it also makes sense why the eagle is used in the book art, because Justin likes to build s`holographic sounds in his bass (possibly this is the hidden guest artist) on top of that the Native American's use the eagle to acess the gates of death without giving up the mortal form(see A Seperate Reality/ Don Genaro)

No, but I hear "A pure, shining spirit, uncompromised..." and nobody else seems to. Does anybody hear that? Listen for a "g" sound before "spirit."

"Uncompromised"

With a "D". "Uncompromise" isn't even a word.

A light in your eyes that [dimmed]
Ends all lies [End of life]

I just listened to it, and I realised that "Ends all lies" could also be one word, "Immobilised". Which fits in with the subject matter quite well.

All in all it's an obscure line which probably won't be fully confirmed til we hear this one live.

Also I don't hear the 's' from 'Ends all lies' , so 'immobilized' is more accurate imo

06-12-2006, 08:48 PM
not to nitpick, but i believe it's

"so.....um.....alright now it's time for us to let you go"

"then" definitely doesn't work, and "I'm" is close and works, but if you listen you can hear him inhale briefly after he says "Um." if it was "i'm" the words would have come out in the same breath. i'm positive it's "um" though, and i'm even more positive that i'm a huge nerd for writing a whole paragraph on it.

edit: that fourth line sounds more like "you believed in moments NONE could see"
it works for my ears and it makes more sense.

Wait, you mean there's actually hope for Tool to release the actual lyrics?

Because generally, I just ignore people who post "Please Maynard release the lyrics" because I didn't ever count on it happening for "10,000 Days".

I also enjoy a chuckle or two from those people. Muah-hahaha. Like he's gonna be reading these forums, stumble upon that one post and go "Hmm... OK." and then release them hours later.

Oh, and uh... I think the line reads "Daylight dims, leaving cold fluorescence". Yeah.

To be a son to an angel?
What have I done
To be worthy?

Daylight dims, leaving cold fluorescence
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question
But what am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?

She never told a lie, might've told a lie
But never lived one
Didn't have a life, didn't have a life
But surely saved one
Saved all, all

Right now it's time for us to let you go

It's the best I could come up with after listening to it and trying to figure out the lyrics since it came out.

Last bit...

Didn't have a life (x2) but surely saved one (i.e. HIS life, Maynard's)
So I'M alright now (no longer need to be saved, so...) It's time for us to let you go.

That's my take on it.

I like that idea, there are a couple parts that I still haven't quite deciphered yet, and that was one of them. I definately like that idea better.

Here's what i got in my car with the bass all the way down and the sound pretty much coming through one speaker to isolate maynard. just a few changes that i can't hear anything else for yet...i'll post pt.2 as well under its own thread when i'm done typing it up. THIS IS MY FIRST POST, as well.....so shake my hand and pass me a drink!

You believed
You believed in moments none could see
You believed in me
A passionate spirit
uncompromised
Boundless and open
A light in your eyes then.
You know Iíve
Become
Broken
Fall at the hands of the moments that I wouldnít see
It was you
Fooled fate for me
What have I done
To be sent to an angel
What have I done
To be worthy



I agree with you for the "you know I've, become. broken" part. It seems to fit really well.
But i do think it is "A light in your eyes dimmed"
and.. "It was you who prayed for me so, what have i done"
and lastly, "to be a son to an angel. what have i done"

I honestly dont hear "the end fo all lies" or whatever else has been suggested.

I hear:

A passionate spirit
Uncompromised
Boundless and open
The light in her eyes dims;
Immobilized


I really can't hear "End of a life" or "Ends all lies".
I can imagine how they both fit, "End of a life" is obvious and "Ends all lies" could mean something like... She lost her faith, lost her beliefs.
But I just don't hear that.

Has there been any discussion about a the possibility of a double-tracked vocal with slightly different words from each side?

Thanks for all the hard work.


I was wondering this myself. It reminds me of the artwork. Perhaps there are words that are slighty different that are sung at the same time and overlap.

I actually think this is the case at the moment.

Just one thing, make sure you don't put "might 'of' told a lie" instead of "might 'have' told a lie" otherwise it makes no sense.

It pisses me off when people type 'of' when they mean 'have'.

Maybe "might've told a lie" would be a good compromise.

This refers to the third ling of the song in Wings for Marie part 1.

I think the lyrics say "You believed in moments none conceived." Not either of the two possibilities on the lyrics page, that replace "none conceived" with "God conceived" or "none could see".

The reason I believe this is with noise cancelling headphones, with the volume extreme loud, I can clearly hear the "D" sound at the end of conceived. Maynard clearly says "none" in the line though, doesn't sound anything like "God". Listen to it with this in mind, I'm sure you'll hear it.

You believed at moments where none could see.

A passionate spirit
Uncompromised
Boundless and open [??] A light in your eyes that
[?? / Could end all lies]

I dunno but I hear "A tension is building" on that first line, haven't checked it carefully though.

Official lyrics have been released.



You believed in movements none could see.
you believed in me.
A passionate spirit.
Uncompromised.
Boundless and open.
A light in your eyes.
Then immobilized.
Broken.
Fell at the hands
of those movements that I wouldn't see.
yet it was you who prayed for me.
So what have I done to be son to an angel?
What have I done To be worthy?

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question, but...
What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight?
"She never told a lie.
Well, might of told a lie, but never lived one."
"Didn't have a life, didn't have a life, but surely saved one."
See? I'm alright.
Now it's Time for us to let you go.

Ha, I was so the closest to getting that line. ^_^
