Hello stranger,
Can you tell us where you've been?
More importantly,
How ever did you come to be here?
Though a stranger,
You can rest here for a while.
But save your energy,
Your journey here is far from over.
Come the sunrise,
We'll descend through Judgement Valley
And weigh your worth
Before her majesty, the Verde River.

No direction but to follow what you know,
No direction but a faith in her decision,
No direction but to never fight her flow,
No direction but to trust the final destination.
You're a stranger til she whispers you can stay.
You're a stranger til she whispers that your journey's over.

Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.

No direction but to follow what you know,
No direction but a faith in her decision,
No direction but to never fight her flow,
No direction but to trust the final destination.
You're a stranger til she whispers you can stay.
You're a stranger til she whispers that your journey's over.

Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.
Weigh your worth before her majesty, the Verde River.

    It's like that the river means the unseen matter that floats trough everthing, like love and that some call god. We people are not in controll of our own direction alone, there is this unphysicle "power" that "guids" us. And as i have been a stranger to the world as most people have been, which is becouse i was locked inside my head. Not beeing connected to the emotions and feelings in this river. Life is just about love and this feeling that comes with it. I reconise tool also sings a lot about this stuff. Like he's trying to tell experiences that are to deep in pychic/metal trough the connection with the dynamic thing called life. Or as i try to explain my feelings and visions sometimes, this band is far beyond of what i can explain yet. Mostly also these girls/womans are nog real but rather and image of a god, like the sun/nature/beauty etc. It's not that simple all so i just keep on ramming my words. I guess this materialistic word is so variable in perception(don't mind my writing fouls btw) and with(or without) some bain stimulation(drugs) you can see beyond this with the third eye and you will be able to look at the other side without you eyes open.

    Or like, who am i, and whatever

    He is speaking to a fetus.

    Verde=green=life

    The "green valley" is a mothers womb, the fetus is a stranger until she makes her decision whether or not to allow it to stay inside her body.

    Its not just about a girl and her 'little world' since its metaphorical it can apply to your very existence in ways that people can't understand, though mostly there is some girl involved too its prophetic in a sense, being metaphorical only you can and will know what it means and how to give it meaning, and you will, and it will give you meaning too.

    Yeah sounds to me like it's about a river, about the awe and majesty of nature and your powerlessness against it's relentless power. Maybe it's also a metaphor for our inexorable march toward death carried on the river of life but maybe not.

    Its about dmt and ayahuasca trips. "where you been" meaning reality. "how to you come to be here" hyper space. Even though your not suppose to be there mother aya will let you stay for awhile. And thats who she is. Also, you have to trust her and let her take you where u wanna go. Also, this is kinda intriguing taking in maynards and the rest of tools beliefs. "green valley" is the area of mars the phoenix lander lanaded at.
