All Tool'ed Out

Woke up yesterday with Tool's 'The Pot' playing in my head.
Spent the next three hours singing the first two lines out loud; in the corridor, in the shower, in my mom's face.

'Who are you to wave your finger?
Ya' must have been out your head.'

Woke up this morning, looked at the digital clock on my phone read 6:40.
The first thing that came to mind was Tool's 'Forty Six & 2'

This may have something to do with me stealing that mindbending 10,000 Days album cover (not the album, mind you) from a dear friend when he was fully wasted and focusing his energies on pretending like he wasn't.
Or, it might have something to do with the absence of the badass bassist who taught me all about odd time signatures as we spent a thousand billion afternoons counting 9/8 in 'Jambi' till I got the fundamentals of the compound meter right.
And started tapping my feet and the table in congruence with ALL of Tool's music.
All of it.
