It's some kind of psychedelic experience
Our body is light, we are immortal
Our body is love, we are eternal
Eternal

Omniscient
Omnipotent
Omnipresent
Without judgment

    THIS SONG IS TRULY, TRULY, TRULY, & SADLY THE MOST UNDERRATED SONG IN THE HISTORY OF ALL MANKIND. This song is the answer to everything.

    LIGHT being the ONE TRUE FORM of physical matter in ALLLL THA UNIVERSE ...

    LOVE being the HIGHEST EVOLVED & ACHIEVABLE EMOTION conceivable in all existing lifeforms ...

    THis is what Merkaba teaches you. THat we are ALL ONE. Light & Love. We are God and God is us.

    lol... its amazing what lengths what depths of denial some people will sink to so their interpretations don't affect their beliefs...

    WAKE UP IDIOTS! Tool are into the OCCULT, which is NOT anything to do with New Age because all that shit is is watered down occultism for the masses... Occultism isnt Satanic either, that's merely Christian bullshit getting in the way of the truth. It's the highest truth that yet exists, equivalent to the Yoga of the East... yet isn't accepted by the mainstream because they're too closeminded to accept it, for them it isn't 'scientific' as if anything like this could be based on scientific principles.

    Hmm. Let's look at a few things shall we? The Grudge 'Saturn comes back around' ASTROLOGY, 'leaden grudges into gold' ALCHEMY... Reflection? 'The Moon, my confidante' ASTROLOGY... Third Eye? CHAKRAS.

    I could go on but seriously if this isnt enough to prove to you guys that Tool are talking on a completely different wavelength to what you guys are tuned into then nothing will convince you... TOOL WANT YOU TO REALISE THESE THINGS AND OPEN YOUR MIND TO WHAT IS OUT THERE. After all, TOOL the name was originally conceived as TOOL for spiritual progress...

    This song ISNT about drug use btw, its possible to have psychadelic experiences WITHOUT drugs you know...

    TOOL ARE OCCULTISTS, that is why they are so good!

    I believe this has something to do with using LSD.

    merkaba is a special meditation that takes you into another dimension and onto another planet where you become someone else.

    "Mer=place of ascending"

    Possibly, but more specifically it translates to "rotating fields of light."

    Merkaba is referring to a deep form of meditation that facilitates deep spiritual growth. For those who didn't catch this in the Parabola video, now you know a little more about the superb ending.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
