    General CommentThis song is a backing track for 10,000 Days along with Wings for Marie.

    It's an easter egg of sorts. The added lengths of Wings for Marie and Viginti Tres are equal to the length of 10,000 Days.

    Try playing 10,000 Days from a separate source such as another music player, while playing Wings for Marie immediately followed by Viginti Tres from another source. You'll find that the songs add up nicely and make for an even greater listening experience.

    General CommentI have researched and found that there is a lot of mathematical, cosmic, and occult reference to the number 23

    Song MeaningOK i'm afraid you don't get it.the 1st question is: why use latin (a dead language)?
    I searched in Roma history but found nothing... the 1st time.
    So I listen the track again and again...
    I m a sound engineer and I absolutely sure that the voice in the track is pitch down, and perhaps slow down too.
    Take the track in cubase or pro-tool (or what u want) reverse the track and speed up(x2)
    then... OOOooooo the "voice" i' ve heared is in fact voice and a sound. the sound was a clue very pitch down that u can hear it's a pitch.
    the voice is 2 syllable very clear now: CEASAR (exactly "César" the roman prononciation...)
    It' s match.let's go back to History:

    "Abominatio Nascitur Autumno"

    october -45: Ceasar win civil war and came back to Rome, he observe a "triumph" and change politic laws.
    you can look on web for more details but it' s the beginning of his own death!
    He take total power but his opposant were now radicals

    "hic est tuum temptamen quod temptat tua potentia"

    during the end of -45 and the begining of -44 a plot born in Roma including the Julius Ceasar' son (Brutus).

    "viginti tres gradus ad summam potestatem"

    march 15th -44: Ceasar his killed by 11persons(including his son)
    23 STABS killed him (you can check, it' s historic)the last stab was give by Brutus his son.
    For numerologists 23 is relied to the death,if tou ask why, they reply by historic exemple (about templar knights etc...)they always talk about the death of Ceasar.

    P.S:scuse my french,I don't speak good english,sorry...

    General CommentI doubted the hidden track, but i really began to research it. This track fits into the hidden track without a dought. Right as Maynard says "your going home" God's voice says ascisco, which means im receiving you in latin. That is the only thing the song says. I heard it the first time i listened to track.

    General CommentAlso, I flipped it around. Just me, but the voice didn't really sound any more distinguishable.

    General CommentIts been suggested that 10,000 Days is the follow-up album to Lateralus. If it is "Disc 2," as has been suggested, Viginti Tres (Latin for twenty three) is literally track 23 of the total album. I don't believe that Faiip de Oiad was ever specifically stated to be track 13 on the Lateralus packaging, so assuming we leave it out, this makes sense. I can't imagine that that would be a coincidence, since it doesn't seem that there is any other real meaning to this song.

    Does anybody have an idea what the voice says?

    General Comment10,000 Days cannot possibly be 'disk 2' to Lateralus... as Maynard's mom (immortalized in Wings for Maire and 10,000 Days) died shortly before APC released 13th Step...

    it's hard to write about things that haven't happened...

    i've heard the voice says Viginiti Tres backwards... but it's hard if not impossible to be sure...

    General Commentoh dear... it seems the word is in from the auzzies and kiwis... the album is selling fast...

    10,000 DAYS IS THE REAL DEAL... THE LEAK IS NOT FAKE... THE FAKEOUT IS FAKE

    Hey TREXOR ... 'foot in mouth and head up ass, so whatcha talkin' bout'... eh?

    General CommentWIKIPEDIA-

    Skepticism that 10,000 Days is the actual title has become void since the album has already been released in some European countries.

    General CommentIt's real. I got it about two or three days ago in the US from a source I won't name. But the packaging is amazing, and how the songs flow and everything is perfect. It's great, but it's very true that it wasn't a leak.

    And this whole album isn't about Maynard's mother. I think the two albums just sort of follow some themes, I'll expound a bit later.
