Parabola is the name of the second single from Tool's album "Lateralus". It was released in 2002 as a promo CD only. On December 20, 2005, the song as well as the music video were released on a DVD single along with the DVD single for "Schism". The DVD also contains an optional "dual" audio commentary on the video by Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys fame. The dual commentary consists of two separate recordings of Biafra's voice, one playing in each stereo channel. It is the band's highest charting single. Music video In support of this promo single, a music video was released — clocking in at over ten minutes because of the inclusion of the 3-minute "Parabol" lead-in (a separate track on the album). It was directed by Adam Jones and, like other Tool videos, includes several abstract scenes (which can be seen on the single art). These include humanoids meeting and cutting pomaceous fruit, then vomiting a black liquid in a circle. Another scene, starring English musician Tricky, includes him dissecting a small biped and then wandering in the forest. It hardly met the criteria for being broadcast on mainstream music video stations, although some channels worked around this by cutting the "Parabol" intro. And Parabol/Parabola which is a(n) Arc of some type.

Parabola - Tool

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside
This holy reality, this holy experience.
Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Alive, I

In this holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Twirling round with this familiar parabol.
Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing.

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.
