Descending
by Tool

Album: Fear Inoculum (2019)
  • Free fall through our midnight
    This epilogue of our own fable
    Heedless in our slumber
    Floating nescient we
    Free fall through this boundlessness
    This madness
    Of our own making

    Falling isn't flying
    Floating isn't infinite

    Come, our end, suddenly
    All hail our lethargy
    Concede suddenly

    To the quickened dissolution
    Pray we mitigate the ruin
    Calling all to arms and order

    Drifting through this boundlessness
    This madness of our own making

    Sound our dire reveille
    Rouse all from our apathy
    Lest we
    Cease to be

    Stir us from our
    Wanton slumber
    Mitigate our ruin
    Call us all to arms and order

    Sound the dread alarm
    Through our primal body
    Sound the reveille
    To be or not to be
    Rise
    Stay the grand finale
    Stay the reading of our swan song and epilogue
    One drive to stay alive
    It's elementary
    Muster every fiber
    Mobilize
    Stay alive

    Stir us from our
    Wanton slumber
    Mitigate our ruin
    Call us all to arms and order Writer/s: Adam Jones, Daniel Carey, Justin Chancellor, Maynard Keenan
