  15. Alix Morris

    Wow! This song really hits home in so many ways. So much struggle we endure, easy to shrug and neglect difficult emotions, instead of facing them. Thank you TOOL for reminding me to always choose life, even during the darkest times.

  32. Colorfunwiththermals

    I dunno maybe I heard it twice with the likings of Lateralus and the master piece of Thirteen Step ha ha James so wants to see me and Noah and bed... Hope his future is genius. If it has something to do with espresso he’d so go crazy over me like Noah just non-stop laughter esp. when I wear my Docs. Boot cut. I love him. And all his mom did was give me ever computer game that was invented. Lucky they were all cooking time management games some fashion but yeah she said their all for me. And all I said was Noah’s games. Stright in a bottle.

  36. Craig Hamil

    They played this instead of The Pot in Phoenix tonight. So happy.

    Mike T

    That's crazy, this is my current "can't get enough of this song" song and I was going to take a trip down there to see them again, saw them in Boston in November, now i'm bumming that I didn't go...

  37. Praesentes Dii

    Maybe an ode to psychoanalysis.

  38. Vishus Vic

    121 people can't be patient, they have trouble reminding themselves to wait it out

  39. Dang Ohohoh

    im struggling with my mania from my bipolar 2... irrational thoughts with anxiety and depression that is crippling... his chanting of "wait it out, gotta wait it out" and "must keep reminding myself of this" is really keeping my feet on the ground right now.

    ado011235

    I don't know what that's like buuut if I may be so bold, I suggest doing self love meditation. I had to say this because it's helping me personally a lot with anxiety.

  40. Lil Homo Erectus

    I saw them play this live in Fresno for the first time in 9 years. I will keep reminding myself of this.

  46. Adam Coyne

    This has been my favorite Tool track for years. It's hard to explain why, it just is. It's beautiful

  47. Amin Ababneh

    Mondays = This song on loop. This tedious path I've chosen here, I certainly would've walked away by now. One Monday I hope to be able to say This tedious path I've chosen here, I certainly am walking away right now. but I've given all I can, and I don't deserve still be on the payroll.

    You never truly appreciate the musicianship until you listen to the song on headphones that can't handle the sounds

    High quality audio equipment is the only way to fully appreciate this musical art

  53. greg romo

    Happy new years

  54. Jackson

    I must keep reminding myself of this

  55. Joshua Sizemore

    [Verse 1]
    A groan of tedium escapes me
    Startling the fearful
    Is this a test? It has to be
    Otherwise, I can't go on
    Draining patience, drain vitality
    This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old

    [Verse 2]
    But I'm still right here
    Giving blood, keeping faith
    And I'm still right here
    But I'm still right here
    Giving blood, keeping faith
    And I'm still right here

    [Pre Chorus]
    Wait it out
    Gonna wait it out
    Wait it out (Be patient)

    [Chorus]
    If there were no rewards to reap
    No loving embrace to see me through
    This tedious path I've chosen here
    I certainly would've walked away by now
    Gonna wait it out

    [Chorus]
    If there were no desire to heal
    The damaged and broken met along
    This tedious path I've chosen here
    I certainly would've walked away by now

    [Bridge]
    And I still may
    I still may
    Be patient
    Be patient
    Be patient
    I must keep reminding myself of this
    I must keep reminding myself of this
    I must keep reminding myself of this
    I must keep reminding myself of this

    [Chorus]
    If there were no rewards to reap
    (I must keep reminding myself of this)
    No loving embrace to see me through
    (I must keep reminding myself of this)
    This tedious path I've chosen here
    (I must keep reminding myself of this)
    I certainly would've walked away
    (I must keep reminding myself of this)

    [Outro]
    By now
    And I still may
    And I still may
    And I still may
    And I

    "If there were no desire to heal
    The damaged and broken met along
    This tedious path I've chosen here
    I certainly would have walked away by now"


    Woah, I never sat down and just read that verse before. One of my biggest motivators to keep going when I want to quit is to help other people get the most out of their lives. Sometimes I feel like there's no point, but I look around and everyone else seems to enjoy theirs... so shit, might as well help others.


    PS this song makes me bawl like a freakin' baby

  61. salmonflavored

    i got an ad about baby furniture. they know tool fans are old now T_T

    Vape nation

  66. alik ivasiv

    Most philosophical music

  67. mattman

    Went on a psychedelic binge freshman year of highschool came out in the middle of sophomore year in a hospital. Feels like I'm listening to my inner most conciousness during those 3 months...

    "And I'm still right here giving blood. Keeping faith..." it's quite morbid, but sounds soothing...

  68. Slayer 41

    My proudest fap

  69. Ms2amores

    Listening to Tool all day. Wait this is my favorite and then the next song comes along, wait this is my favorite. The truth is. Every song is my favorite for one reason or another.... Thank you Tool.

    D H

    Know what you mean. This one is special though

    Ms2amores

    @D H I know, I feel the same this one and flood as well but then, there are so many.... Have been listening to No Quarter their Zeppelin cover and that is, wow.

    I MUST KEEP REMINDING MYSELF OF THIS
    I MUST KEEP REMINDING MYSELF OF THIS!"

  78. Crusifixus

    4:50 till the end are literally the best riffs to preform. Love this song and everything about it. Other than the fact that it’s underrated

  79. aryan yeoh

    penis fingers btw

  80. J power

    Wtf sounded like Peter Frampton voice thing in the beginning

    Henry Sylvester

    Like when Frampton put his voice through a distortion pedal?

    J power

    @Henry Sylvester yesh

  81. Ilya K.

    There is some sort of mystical relationship between Tool's work and my life, in that the former often works as the original soundtrack to the latter.
    So glad it's over, so glad I didn't walk away from this tedious path I've chosen here.

  82. Alan B Real

    Am i the patient ?

  83. Corey Dallmeyer

    A groan of tedium escapes me,
    Startling the fearful.
    Is this a test? It has to be,
    Otherwise I can't go on.
    Draining patience, drain vitality.
    This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old.

    But I'm still right here
    Giving blood, keeping faith,
    And I'm still right here.

    But I'm still right here
    Giving blood, keeping faith,
    And I'm still right here.

    Wait it out.
    Gonna wait it out.
    Be patient (wait it out).

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No loving embrace to see me through,
    This tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.
    Gonna wait it out.

    If there were no desire to heal
    The damaged and broken met along

    And I still may, I still may be patient, be patient, be patient.

    I must keep reminding myself of this.
    I must keep reminding myself of this.

    Gonna wait it out.
    Gonna wait it out.

  93. Happy Emoji

    The Intro sounds like 7empest. The chorus sounds like Pneuma

  94. Celestial Scripture

    Modern masterpiece time has proven timeless.

  95. D.C Al Fine

    I just saw tool live yesterday. It was my first concert for them, and it was awesome.

  96. Kev Cthulu

    The beginning is so epic 😫

  97. Emromo Rod

    En 4:30
    "No estuve"
    Inhala
    Exhala
    "Estuve"
    "I was not"
    Inhale
    Exhale
    "I was"

    Si lo percibes por primera vez estando fumado te deja más que sorprendido 🤫😲

    Lil Homo Erectus

    “I still may”

  98. Serhat Koç

    Pneuma's older sibling. FI is really felt like Lateralus 2.0

    jimins thighs

    @No#name underrated comment

    RacoonMaster

    @No#name lmao

    J P

    Serhat Koç honestly I felt like Pneuma was the love child of Schism and The Patient. The 5/4 section of Pneuma is very reminiscent of this song.

    gage suther

    @J P For some reason, it reminded me a lot of "H.".

    J P

    gage suther how so? I find that connection interesting

  99. j williams

    The extension will not prevail ..
