Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

a lot of you guys are making this whole song way to complicated...and i understand how that sounds, but i mean phonetically. It's, for the most part, pretty cut and dry, most of the words are right there laid out on the table for you, not to hard to understand or anything. Go back to a lot of original interpretations, you'll find most of them are pretty spot on.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

^^what about the second line...it sounds like Halloween is sung, whithout the L-sound...cut-n-dry there? I've yet to see but the SLIGHTEST agreence on "we'an"... ie: "How we'an follow the path..." cept, it's right there, if you listen...personally I don't think anything MJK sings is "cut and dry" it's just never been that way. Take Wings, that shit is messed up yo..."In... ...rise..." WHAT? x-weez me?? anyway...hell, if "pretty spot on." is the same as "kinda pretty close." then I agree, but that's also why there's room to squable.
Peace.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Benhamin, I actually think that the "we'an" part is either "we'd" or simply "we" and it's just an effect of the vocal enunciation. But, "we'd" makes sense, also.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

^^Exactly, my point was that it's not cut and dry. It most def sounds like halloween w/ out the l-sound though, imo. "...how-ween follow the path..." lol...

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

I don't understand why everyone thinks it's "ignorant flippants"...if you look up the word flippant, the only definitions for it are adjectives. It's not a noun, but it seems to me that we're using it as a noun by saying "Ignorant flippants in the congregation". Aside from not making grammatical sense, it's kind of an obscure word and doesn't seem to flow well with the rest of the lyrics. Anyone agree?

Just for the record, I don't think it's "fibbers" either.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Yeah, it makes sense as 'fibbers' but it also *sounds* like he's making an 'fl' sound so 'flippants' is what people hear. - but yes, 'flippant' isn't a noun in any case. He's not saying 'flippants'.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Flippant:frivolously disrespectful, shallow, or lacking in seriousness

I think it is flippant. he's calling the people flippant. Think of it as a "you understood" sentence from back in grammar school. If I said, "Carry this box", you automatically know I'm referring to you.

"Ignorant flippants in the congregation" - It's understood that the people are being flippant. Maynard is just using a little poetic license. While not gramatically correct, the message is conveyed.

Ignorant flippants in the congregation
Gathered 'round spewing sympathy, spare me.

It actually fits perfectly there, meaning that the people at the wake weren't truly sorry. They were just sorry because they were at the wake.

yea, I read that. I am conceding that it is an adjective. My post was just to let everyone know that it's OK that flippant is an adjective, it still works, and most likely is exactly what MJK says.

I'll concede to that possibility - after all, it does sound like 'flippants' whether it's correct or not.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Phonetically it sure sounds like 'flippants' - the only thing keeping from saying yes was that it isn't a noun... but... if that dictionary thing is accurate, then sure, why not?

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Now ...right now, I'm hearing:
Quote:
N'this little light of mine a gift you passed on to me
I already've shun but guide me safely on your way ...your way home
Thinking specifically about Jimmy, and his light, and going back home...
That, or:
Quote:
...but god is safely on your wing...(on) your way home
Thinking specifically about Maries and Maynards exceptance of each others faith.
Pull your head on out your happy haze and give a listen, please.
Peace.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

^ Sorry to be a grammar nazi once more, but "shun" is not a past tense verb for "shine". The correct word would be "shone". "Shun" is a present tense verb and means to reject or avoid someone or something.

Anyways, what's wrong with the more obvious "I'll let it shine to guide you safely on your way..." ?

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

I listen for that line, yes. But it started sounding like "I'll let've shine but guide me safely on your way ...your way home."
Ecspesially the "BUT" instead of "to" - and the "me" instead of "you safely..."
It perked my ear and I listened again & again and heard: "I already've shun but god is safely on your wing ...your way home."
Meaning; I have already shunned(the use of 'shun' to be MEANT as past tense/slang), but god is safely on your wing (which is) your way home.
But working, maybe just as well, would be; ...but guide me safly on your way, your way home. Meaning, that little light that Jimmy holds, and Maynards "way home" ... "I'm, headed back home."

This is ludicrous. In even the slightest attempts, you can tell he does NOT say "I'm gonna let it shine..." and upon further investigation it is discernible he does not say 'to' but 'but' or "you" but rather 'me'.

However "safely on your way" could be correct. But that even sounds like it could be 'wing' ...waaay at the end of way/wing it sort of sounds like you can hear him enounciate the ng-sound.

Peace.

I might even still cling to "I'll let it shine but guide me safely on your way, your way home."

...but I still hear a faint v-sound in there near the begining.

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Official lyrics to the Wings 1 & 2 duo have been released at Tool Army.


Listen to the tales and romanticize how we'd follow the path of the hero.

Boast about a day when the rivers over run how we'd rise to the height of our halo.

Listen to the tales as we all rationalize our way into the arms of the savior.

Feigning all the Trials and tribulations but none of us have actually been there. Not like you.

Ignorant siblings and the congregation gather round spewing sympathy.
Spare me.
None of them can even hold a candle up to you.
Blinded by choice, these hypocrites won't see.

But enough about the collective Judas.

Who could deny you were the one who illuminated your little piece of the divine?

This little light of mine, a gift you passed on to me,
I'm gonna let it shine to guide you Safely On your way.
Your way home.

What are they gonna do when the lights go down without you to guide them all to Zion?

What are they gonna do when the river's over run other than tremble incessantly?

High is the way, but all eyes upon the ground.
You were the light and the way that they'll only read about.
I only pray heaven knows when to lift you out.
10 thousand days in the fire is long enough.
You're going home.

You're the only one who can hold your head up high, shake your fist at the gates, saying,
"I've come home.
now... Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.
Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.
It's time now.
My time now.
Give me my wings."

Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance(with the )burden of proof
tossed upon the believers,
You were my witness, my eyes, and my evidence.
Judith Marie.
Unconditional one.

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.
Difficult to see you in this light.
Please forgive this bold suggestion,
but should you see your makers face tonight...
Look him in the eye. Look him in the eye.
Tell him,
"I never lived a lie, never took a life,
but surely saved one.
Halleluiah.
It's time for you to bring me home."

words by Maynard James Keenan

Re: 04 - 10,000 Days (Wings pt 2) lyrics

Well holy shyt. Other than 'siblings' all the contended lyrics were as I thought they were. I'd be proud of myself but, then again, it's a just a fucking song, you know?

(Although I have strong belief that 'siblings' is a contrived lyric and that's not really what he sings on the album at all. I still hear 'flippants' pretty clearly.)

For the record, the official lyrics often differ slightly from what he actually says on the album; a very obvious example is Aenema (two of the "fret for your..."s are reversed). Also, it sounds like "I'ma let it shine."

*shrugs* Simple it may be, but that's always what I've heard. Kinda like "I'mna"
