Tool – Schism (album: Lateralus 2001)

This next song is by Tool. It’s a very creative band that combines visual arts with their music and that makes them more unique, they have their own style, they are known for their use of complex rhythms and it’s pretty easy to recognize them when you hear their songs. I was first exposed to this particular song in “Guitar Hero”. It’s quite an awesome song. The guitars in this song have quite magical sounds.

Speaking of Art, I’m a big fan of it, not artistic myself. But I do admire Art and I’ve been to a few art galleries and Museums and I’m planning to go to as many as I can in the future. In 1998 I went with my friend to a “Pop Art” exhibition in San Francisco. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. There was an entire floor dedicated to the late Keith Haring which I love very much. Unfortunately he died from complication of Aids at the age of 31. You’ve probably have seen a lot of his work on many T-Shirts. Madonna & U2 are big fan of his work. Anyway, both my friend and I enjoyed it very much. I hope you enjoy this awesome song from a very artistic band...

What’s this song about?
Here is a comment from songfacts website:

This is about the divisions within the church. It talks about how the church was once good and pure, but has now been corrupted by people.
