Viginti Tres Lyrics - Tool

Review The Song (10)

Una Infinitas
Abominatio Nascitur Autumno
Hic est tuum temptamen quod temptat tuam potentiam
Viginti tres gradus ad summam potestatem

One infinity
The horror begins in autumn
This is your trial, which tries your (power, might, ability; efficacy, potency)
Twenty three steps to total power.(Or: 23 ranks to the highest power.)

He Said.......? | Reviewer: lotus_spoken | 5/8/11

It sounds like that the voice is speaking in german. Sounds like he says; "Das ist Gut," when transl;ated into english, means, "that is good?!" My overall impression, of the basic message of the album is that it is a religous pun.

Truth | Reviewer: Tyler leonard | 4/22/11

this song tells you 23 like the movie 23 the next song that you want to look at is the grudge it tells you to calculat 23 in the bible he cant come out and say it because he will be killed i would like to talk to all the celebs cuz they all know the truth about like but they cant come out and say it i also think the song that he gets visedted by a alien he really did

Aenima/Lateralus connection | Reviewer: Andy | 8/11/10

this song i'm assuming is lyrically connected to the song forty six and two (from Aenima), which is about the extra pair of chromosomes which add to some form of an ability to experiment with the levels of conscioussness... look that up on youtube if you want a clearer understanding, but if you'll consider that, for that to happen, you need twenty three pairs of chromosomes and he mentions twenty three steps in these lyrics. hope this helps anyone trying to understand this song, and any of their other songs.

Sync these. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/6/10

Dunno if this has been posted yet, but I found this a little while ago on a website. Here:

Open up your favourite media player, and make a playlist with:

Viginti Tres
Wings For Marie (Pt 1)

Now, open up either a second media player, or pop the CD into your stereo, and get the 4th track ready:

10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2)

Make sure you start them both playing at the same time. The two will synch up perfectly. The singing at the end also synchs up completely if you played them at the right time.

Tool meant these tracks to synch. They wanted to make an epic flowing song like an 8-peice band as a tribute to Maynard's mother's passing. If you look at the track times, "10,000 Days" is 11 mins and 13 seconds long. When you add the track times of "Viginti Tres" and "Wings for Marie", they add up to 11:13 as well. Also, "Viginti Tres" means the number 23 in Latin, and 23 is the number of synchronicity.

"Assist us" or "Resistors"(?) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/31/10

What I┬┤ve heard is contained in the self-explaining title of my review...but the "Asisco" Enochian explanation would also fit perfectly for "tool" and would make much more sense(because of "Faaip de Oiad" as Shaun has already mentioned)!

These lyrics are wrong!!! | Reviewer: Shaun | 2/15/10

There is a single word uttered in this song in enochian (the angelic language - as in "Faaip de Oiad" on Lateralus "Voice of God" FYI). The general consensus is that the word spoken in Viginti Tres (23 - Latin) is "Asisco" and means something along the lines of to admit or to take in. I think the sounds you hear in the beginning of the song are angels wings and other celestial sounds. The voice is possibly that of God, welcoming Marie to heaven and granting her wings. However, Tool have never released official lyrics for this track.

I still don't hear any of that in the song. O_O All I hear is creepy breathing sounds and hissing and a weird creepy voice that sounds like it's saying 'assist me' or something like that. O_O How does the song sound like this!? O_O
