Invincible
by Tool

Album: Fear Inoculum (2019)
  • Long in tooth and soul
    Longing for another win
    Lurch into the fray
    Weapon out and belly in

    Warrior struggling
    To remain consequential
    Bellow aloud
    Bold and proud
    Of where I've been
    But here I am

    Beating chest and drums
    Beating tired bones again
    Age-old battle, mine
    Weapon out and belly in

    Tales told of battles won
    Of things we've done
    Caligula would grin

    Beating tired bones
    Tripping through remember when
    Once invincible
    Now the armor's wearing thin
    Heavy shield down

    Warrior struggling
    To remain relevant
    Warrior struggling
    To remain consequential
    Cry aloud
    Bold and proud
    Of where I've been
    But here I am
    Where I end

    Warrior struggling
    To remain relevant
    Warrior struggling
    To remain consequential

    Tears in my eyes
    Chasing Ponce de Leon's phantom
    Soul filled with hope
    I can taste mythical fountains
    False hope, perhaps
    But the truth never got in my way
    Before now, feel the sting
    Feeling time bearing down

    Tears in my eyes
    Chasing Ponce de Leon's phantom
    Soul filled with hope
    I can taste mythical fountains
    False hope, perhaps
    But the truth never got in my way
    Before now, feel the sting
    Feeling time bearing down

    False hope, perhaps
    But the truth never got in my way
    Before now, feel the sting
    Feeling time bearing down

    Bearing down Writer/s: Maynard James Keenan, Adam Jones, Daniel Carey, Justin Gunner Chancellor

  • Ryan from Orlando FlThis track is just an absolute amazing piece of musical art. Thank you for the breakdown
  • Ted from AlaskaIt’s about an aging warrior refusing to give up the fight even when he’s past his prime, believing he is invincible for taking on many enemies over the years without ever giving up.
  • XlesnarThis is By Far my Fav Tool song of all their albums
