Tool 10,000 Days (Pt. 2) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/20/2014 09:20:44 AM

Listen to the tales and romanticize
How we follow the path of the hero
Boast about the day when the rivers overrun
How we'll 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 the tribulations
None of us have actually been there
Not like you

Ignorant siblings in the congregation
Gather around 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 unto 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 guide them all to Zion
What are they gonna' do when the rivers overrun
Other than tremble incessantly

High is the way but our eyes are upon the ground
You are the light and the way they'll only read about
I only pray, heaven knows when to lift you out
Ten 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, give me my wings

Give me my (x7)
Give me my wings

You are the light and the way
That they will only read about

Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance
Burden of proof tossed upon the believers
You were my witness
My eyes, my evidence
Judith Marie, unconditional one

Daylight dims
Leaving cold fluorescents
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this bold suggestion
Should you see your maker's face tonight
Look him in the eye
Look him in the eye, and tell him
i never lived a lie, never took a life
But surely saved one, hallelujah
it's time for you to bring me home
