The Weaver

    A Tribute to my Spiritual Brother – Maynard James Keenan

This is the first song (and, the only there will ever be, I imagine) where Maynard James Keenan steps out into the light and describes himself.

This is the man, the myth, the legend

…And, a spiritual icon.

I have been a Tool fan since 1995. I feel like I grew up with this man – and have evolved with him.  He has spiraled out into a reflective member of humanity from the darkness of societal contempt he railed against in his youth.  That being said – I am otherwise speechless

“Observing the shades
Interpreting signs
Reporting the patterns
Row by line

Liturgical tales I live and tell
Fused and entwined
Like threads in the tapestry

I am therefore I do
Explore. I am the weaver,
I do therefore become
A seer and believer.

Observing the shades
Interpreting signs
Reporting the patterns
Row by line

I am therefore I do
Explore. I am the weaver,
I do therefore become
A seer and believer.

I am therefore I do
Pursue. I am the weaver,
I do therefore become
A seer and believer.

Observing the shades
Interpreting signs
Reporting the patterns
Row by line

Elegiacal psalms I live and tell
Spun and woven
Like threads in the tapestry

I am therefore I do
Explore. I am the weaver,
I do therefore become
A seer and believer.

I am therefore I do
Pursue. I am the weaver,
I do therefore become
A seer and believer”
