"Jambi" is the third single and the second track from 10,000 Days by Tool. It was made officially available for radio airplay on February 12, 2007. Adam Jones uses a talk box effect during the guitar solo. The song is in 9/8 time, except for the guitar solo where the rhythm is temporarily changed to 6/4 before going back to 9/8. The title comes from the character Jambi in Pee-wee's Playhouse. Jambi is also an Indonesian province in Sumatra, which was once part of the powerful Melayu Kingdom. Legends state that it was ruled by a rich sultan who lived an opulent lifestyle; this legend may be the one referred to in the song's lyrics. "Drummer Danny Carey stated when bassist Justin Chancellor played the bass track of the song, it instantly reminded him of the children's television program Pee-wee's Playhouse, then singer Maynard James Keenan thought of the genie "Jambi" and had the idea to make the song's theme about making wishes." - Wikipedia.org


Formed around 1990 in Los Angeles, California, United States, by drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, vocalist Maynard James Keenan, and original bassist Paul D'Amour, Tool is a band that is most noted for combining alternative metal with a wide variety of progressive structures, irregular time signatures and lyrics that range from angry diatribes to meditations on philosophical and social matters.

Jambi - Tool

Here from the king's mountain view;
Here from the wild dream come true -
Feast like a sultan, I do,
On treasures and flesh, never few.

But I, I would wish it all away
If I, thought I'd, lose you
Just one day

The devil and his had me down,
In love with the dark side I'd found.

Dabbling all the way down.
Up to my neck;
Soon to drown

But you,
Changed that all for me,
Lifted me up, turned me 'round.
So I
I
I
I
I would
I would
I would
Wish this all away

Prayed like a martyr dusk til dawn
Begged like a hooker all night long
Tempted the devil with my song
And got what I wanted all along

But I
And I would
If I could,
Then, I would
Wish it away
Wish it away
Wish it all away
Wanna wish it all away
No cross could hold, sway,
Or justify kneeling away my center

So if I could I'd wish it all away,
If I thought tomorrow
Would take you away.
You're my peace of mind, my home, my center.
I'm just trying to hold on
One more day

Dim my eyes
Dim my eyes

Dim my eyes, if they should
Compromise our fulcrum;
Want and need - if I need it
I might as well be gone

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent son

Shine down upon the broken
Shine until the two become one

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent son

Shine down upon the severed
Shine until the two become one

Divided I'm withering away
Divided I'm withering away

Shine down upon the many
Light our way
Benevolent son

Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
So, as one, survive
Another day in season.

Silence legion, save your poison,
Silence legion stay out of my way!
