Fear Inoculum

Anyone that has talked to me about music knows that I am a huge Tool fan. Hell, I have a tattoo of the eye from the album Ænima on my arm. It’s been 13 years since they put out an album. They finally are on streaming services now, woot, and they release a new song for the upcoming album to be release at the end of the month.

I’ve listened to this song several times and I’ve gone from “what the fuck is this” to “wow, nailed it”. Their music is so complex and layered that I had to digest different parts a couple of times to really get the “feel”.

I though I’d put the lyrics to the song too.


Immunity long overdue
Contagion I exhale you
Lying I opened up to you
Venom in mania

Now, contagion I exhale you

The deceiver he says you belong to me
You don’t want to breathe the light of the others
Fear the light
Fear the breathe
Fear the others for eternity
But I hear them now inhale the clarity
Hear the venom, the venom in what you say — inoculated
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity

Exhale, expel
Recast my tale
Weave my allegorical elegy

All that I’m to do
Calculating steps away from you
My own mitosis
Growing through delusion from mania

Exhale, expel
Recast my tale with my allegorical elegy

Forfeit all control
You poison
You spectacle

Exorcise the spectacle
Exorcise the malady
Exorcise the disparate
Poison for eternity
Purge me and evacuate
The venom and the fear that binds me

Unveil now
Lift away
I see you running
Deceiver chased away
A long time coming
