"Undertow (1991.09.05)" as written by Daniel Carey, Adam Jones, Paul D'amour and Maynard James Keenan....
Two times in
I've been struck dumb by a voice that
Speaks, from deep beneath peerless water that's
Twice as clear as heaven
Twice as loud as reason
Deep and rich like silt on a riverbed
Just as neverending
Current's mouth below me
Opens up around me
Suggests and beckons all while swallowing
Surrounds and drowns, and wipes me away
But I'm so comfortable
So comfortable

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
You're saturating me
How could I let this bring me
Back to my knees?

Third time in!
I've been baptized by your voice that
Screams, from deep beneath the cold black water that's
Half as high as heaven
Half as clear as reason
Cold and black like silt on the riverbed
Just as neverending
Current's mouth below me
Opens up around me
Suggests and beckons all while swallowing
Surrounds and drowns, and wipes me away
But I'm so comfortable
So comfortable

Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
You're saturating me
How could I let this happen?
Why don't you kill me?
I am weak and numb and insignificant
How could I let this bring me back to my knees?

Euphoria
Euphoria
Euphoria
Euphoria

I'm back down, I'm in the undertow
I'm helpless and I'm awake, I'm in the undertow
I'll die beneath the undertow
There doesn't seem to be a way out of the undertow

Euphoria

    General CommentIf you notice, Tool's "official" lyrics say "These are NOT the lyrics you will hear and every time we do the song it will be different". So posting random live performance lyrics is pretty retarded.
