"Parabola" as written by and Maynard James/jones Keenan....
I caught my eye in a swinging door.
I'd never seen that man before.
I saw myself in someone else and hated them ever since.
Some broken glass and a bleeding hand.
The mirror's down but I'm still standing.
Stand.
I know who I am.

    General CommentUnbelievably raw song. Blake's vocal screeches is the epitome of great 90s indie rock.
