A Perfect Circle Lyrics

A Perfect Circle is Maynard James Keenan's musically
talented new group, it is not a side project. Tool is not
gone for good though, Maynard looks forward to start
recording the Tool album after this year's Canadian
Somersault tour finishes. Maynard will have 3 weeks off at
this point, and he will start to record the next tool album
if the other band members are ready. Maynard has been
trying to fire the other tool members up in recent
interviews, so as to make sure they will be ready when he
comes off from tour. FYI: Maynard wears a More...

Review about A Perfect Circle songs
I finally understand | Reviewer: Michael Goff
    ------ About the song Judith performed by A Perfect Circle

This song finally makes sense. In a world ruled by wickedness, in a country ruled by tyranny, everyone should be in mourning. And the most evil people in the world are the fake christians. Most politicians are fake christians. They use the Savior of the world as a prop to launch their foolish agendas for a short time until hell opens up and swallows them whole. When Jesus said, "thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it," he wasn't talking about keeping the major churches in business. He meant his saints will always live, and live through Him. And this song is the perfect example of what Jesus meant when he said, "If you don't hate brother sister mother father wife--even your own life, you cannot be my disciple." And God said that cowards and hypocrites would not enter the kingdom of heaven. Also that if you love your life you will lose it. You are supposed to hate your life here on earth and be poor in spirit, then the kingdom of heaven will be yours. If you are happy here, rot in F****** hell!

    ------ About the song Judith performed by A Perfect Circle

This song is a punch in the face on all those hypocrites out there, subjected to a religion however it may be defined (major religions, new age, astrology, science, you-name-it). In other words, any system of belief that contains some sort of paradigm.

Some people know the real spirit/God/whatever, the all everything, the thing is, that it is impossible to explain, one cannot explain "God", as "God" itself is everything that is. Everything cannot describe itself, so to speak.

There are some factors that is good and bad, right and wrong, but it doesn't have to be defined in any way whatsoever, because every sane living being in this universe already knows what is right and what is wrong. You don't see a three-year old killing another human, do you?
So this is what I would say a punch in the face on all those "believers" out there, but who doesn't understand what they believe in.

Because you see, "God" is anything but stupid or judgmental. "God" is everything that is. Everything. But it extends free will on every scale, therefore this fucked up society. "God" didn't screw things up. We did.

    ------ About the song Judith performed by A Perfect Circle

This song is all about blindly believing in an asinine, unoriginal religion. Religious fanatics can't understand these lyrics. If you could reason with religious zealots, there would be none.

Interpreted in spanish.. | Reviewer: Log blackheart
    ------ About the song Orestes performed by A Perfect Circle

Interpretada en español es mucho mas dificil de comprender.. Para mi y por lo que pude entender y sentir, trata sobre el odio a su madre y acerca del porqué lo trajo a este mundo lleno de dolor. Pienso que la cancion fue pensada como si Orestes pensaba adentro de la panza de la madre pidiendole que lo abortara para no hacerle mal a ella (su madre) y el no sufrir en el futuro, ya que de feto/bebe no sufre, pero afuera en la tierra si.
Disculpen si confundo a alguien :P

I love this song | Reviewer: Seriniti Brown
    ------ About the song By and Down performed by A Perfect Circle

This song is so amazing. The lyrics are very meaningful and I think Maynerd did a pretty deep song. I like the detail he managed to let out on how he felt. Honestly, he's a lyrical genius. I hope I can write as good as him in the future. But I don't even think I'll manage to keep sane in some of my 10th grade classes. This song is one peace of hope to sanity. Well managed.

Get a life | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Brena performed by A Perfect Circle

I love how everyone tries so hard to get in Maynard's mind. It's his song for only him to know. Also, it's not Tool, but A Perfect Circle. Maynard fans...you take yourselves too seriously. Get a life! Stop taking every work, sentence and lyric apart and just listen to it. I've never come across fans that come across as such intellectual (not so much), full of jargon...dorks. Just listen to it and take it in without tearing it apart.

In my opinion... | Reviewer: Kristin
    ------ About the song Gravity performed by A Perfect Circle

Absolutely, I agree with the person who said that this song can be interpreted by anyone. In my opinion it is about a recovering addict who wants to stay clean but is still fighting their demons. Hence the line...Calm these hands before they
Snare another pill and
Drive another nail down
Another needy hole
Please release me...
But of course we all have our own opinions, this is how I interpret the song for myself. Thanks, have a nice day.

maynard is the messenger, not the writer. | Reviewer: Nihil Sine Nefas
    ------ About the song magdelena performed by A Perfect Circle

Maynard is not attempting to make any statement, or give any point of view in any song of Mer De Noms. Billy Howerdel wrote all the songs. It's all his points of view. Maynard got the roll of singing the songs after he read a few and said, "I could hear myself seeing these." Mr. Howerdel intended for a female vocalist, but who could pass up Maynard of Tool fame if he said he wanted to do it?? Maynard: "Piss!!" Billy: "On who??!!" <-- kinda like that in that situation.

Two or more meanings to everything... | Reviewer: Megan
    ------ About the song Thomas performed by A Perfect Circle

Yes... Thomas is a character in the bible and all that checks out. I do like that theory But in addition, Maynard has had issues with Addiction. Opiate. 13th Step. Etc etc. The Thomas Recipe is a way of trying to get clean of opiates. I have struggled with my own opiate addiction. Still struggling. This song reminds me of my struggle... humble and helpless and learning to pray... I love anything that Maynard does. He's brilliant.

Perspective | Reviewer: Awakened Beauty
    ------ About the song Sleeping Beauty performed by A Perfect Circle

I can relate to this song, being a version of a "sleeping beauty". Years and generations of alcohol abuse within my family and having broken the chain. The self realizations that follow when you quit, of all the poor choices you make and the ripple effects. The third eye does decalcify when you quit drinking, awakening the inner-self and being able to see clearly, the forest and the trees from a birds' eye view. There is hope for the awakened beauty.

Oddly enough, I've also dated "sleeping princes" and realized also, that they were too poisoned for me, but I didn't know that at the time.

I've always admired this CD and it brings new light to my life, every song. Great album and thanks guys for the perspective.
