Song of the Moment

Tool - 10'000 Days - Vicarious

---Begin Lyrics---
Eye on the the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like...
"Killed by the husband"
"Drowned by the ocean"
"Shot by his own son"
"She used a poison...
In his tea...kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story
It's no fun 'til someone dies!

Don't look at me like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV
Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child
Watches them die
Hands to the sky crying,
"Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die... from a distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
YOU ALL NEED IT TOO, DON'T LIE!

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing
Neither the brave nor bold
Will write as the story's told
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die... from a good safe distance
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same, so...

Why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain falling down
DRUM ON GRAVE AND GROUND

Part vampire
Part warrior
Carnivore and Voyuer
Stare at the transmital
Sing to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie...
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie...
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie...
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie...

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
Pull your head on out your hand
please, and give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal
Devour to survive... so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire...

Vicariously I... Live while the whole world dies!
Much better you than I!

---End Lyrics---
