Tool – Eulogy lyrics

He had a lot to say.
He had a lot of nothing to say.
We'll miss him.
We'll miss him.

He had a lot to say.
He had a lot of nothing to say.
We'll miss him.
We're gonna miss him
We're gonna miss him

So long.
We wish you well.
You told us how you weren't afraid to die.
Well then, so long.
Don't cry.
Or feel too down.
Not all martyrs see divinity.
But at least you tried.

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud.
We'll miss him.
We'll miss him.

Ranting and pointing his finger
At everything but his heart.
We'll miss him.
We'll miss him.
We're gonna miss him.
We're gonna miss him.

No way to recall
What it was that you had said to me,
Like I care at all.

But you were so loud.
You sure could yell.
You took a stand on every little thing
And so loud.

"I'm too smart when you're invisible by the bone and the symbol on you. So he bashes his skull through the window while over looking the sea. Twilight amber ego. We were amused by this"

Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud and I
Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so
Eager to identify with
Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, with
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?
Don't you fuckin lie.

Don't you step out of line.
Don't you step out of line.
Don't you step out of line.
Don't you fuckin lie.

You've claimed all this time that you would die for me.
Why then are you so surprised when you hear your own
Eulogy?

He had a lot to say.
He had a lot of nothing to say.
He had a lot to say.
He had a lot of nothing to say.

Come down.
Get off your fuckin cross.
We need the fuckin space to nail the next fool martyr.

To ascend you must die.
You must be crucified
For our sins and our lies.
Goodbye!!!

    IN MY OPINION the song explains the role in modern society of visionary and tormented people, the "fool martyrs"
    who lose themselves in trying to understand the world we live in in ways that lead to schizophrenia and exile from society.
    The contrast between the pure reason/holiness versus the compromise we have to come towards life.
    Martyrs and saints are no longer seen as exceptional people as they were in the past, and maybe because we (human species) think we know everything about the world, or maybe because this "everything" is completely wrong or corrupted. This doesn't change the fact that our society needs to create martyrs, if not as examples of good, as examples of how not thinking "the good think" leads to failure and Death.
    He had a lot - of nothing - to say
    Not all martyrs see divinity
    Someone above the ground,
    Someone who seemed to feel the same,
    Someone prepared to lead the way
    Get off your f**king cross, we need the f**king space to nail the next fool martyr.
