About 100% certain of the whispers in the beginning now...

I saw a thread here a while ago regarding the whispers in the beginning of the song.

I downloaded a bootleg of 46&2 from DOS.net that was recorded at Ettelbruck. Maynard says quite clearly in the beginning -

"Join in. Join in my child.
while my shadow moves
closer then farther away from me."

I am about 100% sure these are the words MJK is saying. I can't say for sure whether they are the same in the studio version..but I'll wager a pretty penny that these are the words he is whispering.

Download the bootleg! Ettelbruck, LU. www.deadohiosky.net

(I think its down right now, I hope to see it back up soon.)

:)

This may be accurate...

I read what you had written about the whispers at the beginning of Forty Six + 2 and since it's my favorite TOOL song, I wanted to check for myself. I seem to have found a discrepancy though. I have a live mp3 version, and a different live version on cd from Paris, and when I plugged the tracks into WinAmp, tinkered with the EQ, dropped all but 3k, and 12k, to the bottom, raised those two, lowered the preamp to -20db, and turned the bass down on my speakers to drop the low end, I heard Maynard saying:

Join in my,
Join in my child (while my),
Shadow moves,
Closer to my fool memory.

Now the 'while my' was whispered softly, and the 'fool' could also be 'full'...only a handfull of people know for sure..and I'm not one of them.

From my old and trusty list of Tool whisperings:

Join in my
Join in my child and listen
I'm digging through
My old numb shadow

I've been an active and contributing member of the online Tool community since late 95 or early 96.

In seven or eight years, I've collected a *ton* of information.

I agree completely with Chris_Brightwell, if you listen carefully, he clearly says:

Join in my
Join in my child and listen
I'm digging through
