Song of the year!!!

It happened during one of those quizzes which take place at bms quite regularly..in typical college quizzing tradition, there was some hazaar time gap between prelims and finals..after trying to snooze in the audi(which by far has the best air-conditioning setup that i've ever come across)unsuccessfully,sohan gave me some muzik.Sohan being this new age music guy introduced me to an album titled lateralus by tool.The first song of tool was a 'insert cool superlative here'.It harked back to the day i experienced zep.The opening riff of 'Schism' ranks in my all-time super gaanas.And incidentally these guys are into very complex rythymic patterns..The lyrics are also very fundoo,in the league of rush(though not as zonked).The lyrics of schism are as under.

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them fall away
mildewed and smoldering, fundamental differing,
pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion
disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
the light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
we cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication.

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them tumble down
no fault, none to blame it doesn't mean I don't desire to
point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over.
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication.

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between,
And the circling is worth it.
Finding beauty in the dissonance.

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away.
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the the math enough to know the dangers of a second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow, and strengthen our communication

cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion

between supposed lovers
between supposed brothers.

And I know the pieces fit.
