My, out of my mind
My life, I,
my mind, out of my mind
my life, I

So confident so, self obsessed no
Compromise no, self obsessed no

My mind, out of my mind, my...

As you stare into the water
Are you scared to be forgotten?
As you stare into the water...

My, out of my mind
My life, I
my mind, out of my mind
My mind, I

Compromise no, self obsessed no
Compromise no, self obsessed so
Compromise no, compromise so
Compromise so, self obsessed

As you stare into the tide
Are you scared to be forgotten?
As you stare into the water..

Terrified, terrified, terrified to be forgotten
Terrified, terrified, terrified to be forgotten
Terrified, terrified, terrified to be forgotten
Terrified, terrified, terrified to be forgotten

    General CommentDid that fail? Hmm well I'll just write it again. It's a Peach GB song, but Maynards side project/band A Perfect Circle has covered it.

    General Comment"this isnt actualy a tool song it is a song from the band peach danny carreys old band before he joined tool"

    No, it was Justin Chancellor's old alternative-metal band. Paul leaves, Justin's old band fails, Justin joins Tool.

    "Maynards side project/band A Perfect Circle has covered it."

    Just to clarify a bit, people don't usually realize Billy Howerdel formed and created A Perfect Circle. He was originally going to have a female vocalist but found Maynard willing. It's not Maynard's band.

    General CommentWell, Maynard has written songs, ergo it is his (and all the other members') band.

    Just like Metallica might be Kirk Hammett's band, but he didn't form it. It's also James' and Lars' band.

    General CommentHey Mechar this song isn't covered by APC. If you listen to it you can very clearly tell that it's Danny Carrey playing the drums. Unmistakable. Noone else plays drums like that.
