    Lyrics

    So familiar
    And overwhelmingly warm
    This one, this form I hold now
    Embracing you, this reality here
    This one, this form I hold now
    So wide-eyed and hopeful
    Wide-eyed and hopefully wild

    We barely remember
    What came before this precious moment
    Choosing to be here, right now, hold on
    Stay inside

    This body holding me
    Reminding me that I am not alone in
    This body makes me feel
    Eternal, all this pain is an illusion

      This is a truly profoundly sublime and amazing song, especially for its simplicity just at the musical level..But when one delves deeper and opens their mind to the power of the words therein, and the associations grown in our synapses..They are shown a side of reality that can rarely be exposed without the influence of another sentient being but which if accepted and reflected upon within ones self can act as a spiritual initiation or awakening...which i find to be the key most amazing factor about tool's music..And its not just parabol its every song they right!!!! This also being only one component of endless of their music of coarse but to me it is very prominent in parabol..It acts as a auditory and vibratory mandala of sorts drawing ones focus deeply inwards..
      Beautifully sung and transcendentally powerful..one of my favorite songs on the planet,especially when combined with parabola..Absolutely EPIC construct..Yet another testament to the collective creative musical genius that is tool..Namaste

      This is an awesome song, my fave song on the cd!
      When it comes to the meening of the song i have to agree what ciberfer said.
      in the other hand i think tool compared this form for meditation with Hindu and/or Bhuddism, Parabol not about being born, Parabola is not about giving birth

      Parabol is about being reborn.
      The song starts like this:

      So familiar
      And overwhelmingly warm
      This one, this form I hold now
      Embracing you, this reality here
      This one, this form I hold now
      So wide-eyed and hopeful
      Wide-eyed and hopefully wild

      This is about the person entering the body, while it's still in the mother, where it's nice and warm. It's a familliar feeling becouse the person has been alive before and embraces his new mother with the his/her love.
      this is why the person refers to his/her bodey as a form he/she holds now.


      We barely remember
      What came before this precious moment
      Choosing to be here

      This is because noone would remember their former life, the memories fade away as the bodey ventures into a new form

      This body holding me
      Reminding me that I am not alone in
      This body makes me feel
      Eternal, all this pain is an illusion

      This is when the persons mother is giving birth. and reflects to the mother's feelings at the moment of the childs birth

      i partly agree to what Micola said becouse in the song where it says ''we'' barely rememer signefies that it shows both the child and the mothers feelings, parabol is about being reborn and the mothers feelings when she's giving birth to the child

      Truly amazing.

      Video for Parabol & Parabola together is a great one, I think my favorite.

      It's about birth, among other things.

      Is it just me, or does it seem like this song is about sex? More so making love... but am I the only one?

      This works in very well with Parabola and is nice calming music to listen to. Nice lyrics too!

      I think it is awesome the way parabol is a prelude to parabloa. Together it is one really good long song. I would love to see them in concert again!
