“Right In Two”

Angels on the sideline,
Puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they’re all confused.

Don’t these talking monkeys know that
Eden has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys,
Where there’s one you’re bound to divide it.
Right in two.

Angels on the sideline,
Baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason.
And this is what they choose.
And this is what they choose…

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They forge a blade,
And where there’s one
they’re bound to divide it,
Right in two.
Right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey.
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs.
They make a club.
And beat their brother, down.
How they survive so misguided is a mystery.

Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here.

Cut and divide it all right in two [x4]

Fight over the clouds, over wind, over sky
Fight over life, over blood, over prayer,
overhead and light
Fight over love, over sun,
over another, Fight for each other,
for the ones who are rising.

Angels on the sideline again.
Benched along with patience and reason.
Angels on the sideline again
Wondering when this tug of war will end.

Cut and divide it all right in two [x3]
RIGHT IN TWO!

Right in two…
10,000 Days is the Grammy Award-winning fourth studio album by American rock band Tool. The album was released on April 28, 2006, in parts of Europe, April 29, 2006, in Australia, May 1, 2006, in the United Kingdom, and May 2, 2006, in North America. By the end of 2007, the album had sold 2.5 million copies worldwide and has been awarded a Platinum certification by the RIAA.

Recording

The album was recorded at O’Henry Studios in Burbank, California, as well as at The Loft and Grandmaster Studios in Hollywood, California. It was mixed at Bay 7 in North Hollywood and mastered at Gateway Mastering Studios in Portland, Maine. The June 2006 issue of Guitar World (released April 11, 2006) featured an interview with guitarist Adam Jones discussing the new album. Jones explained that recording techniques for the album involved the use of a “pipe bomb microphone” (a guitar pickup mounted inside a brass cylinder), and a talk box guitar solo on the song “Jambi”. The “pipe bomb microphone” and other studio related information was further detailed in the June 1, 2006 issue of Mix. Drummer Danny Carey operated many of the sound effects on the interlude tracks on the album using electronic drums called Mandalas.

Packaging

The compact disc packaging for 10,000 Days consists of a thick cardboard-bound booklet partly covered by a flap holding a pair of stereoscopic eyeglasses, which can be used to view a series of images inside, which include, for the first time since Undertow, an individual portrait of each band member. Viewed with the glasses, the artwork produces an illusion of depth and three-dimensionality. Alex Grey, who created a majority of the album art for Lateralus and its accompanying video “Parabola”, reprised his role for 10,000 Days. The CD face itself is decorated with stylized eyes, arranged in a seemingly logarithmic spiral toward the center (adapted from a previous Alex Grey painting, “Net of Being”). As with Tool’s other albums, the lyrics are not printed within the artwork; vocalist Maynard James Keenan has instead released the lyrics online. On May 5, 2006, the band’s official webmaster hinted that “the four individual photos [of the band members] can be used as the pieces of a kind of puzzle”, but the puzzle and its meaning “will just be another nut to crack”.
On February 11, 2007, Adam Jones, art director and guitarist for the band, received the Grammy Award for Best Recording Package for his work on the 10,000 Days packaging.

Singles

On March 27, 2006, Billboard.com posted an article about 10,000 Days, which mentioned that “Vicarious” would be the album’s first single. “Vicarious” was officially released to radio on April 17, and entered the Modern Rock Tracks chart at number 2. A music video for the song was released on DVD on December 18, 2007. The song has also been featured as a playable track on the video game Guitar Hero World Tour. The second single from the album was “The Pot”, which peaked at No. 5 on the Modern Rock chart. It was the band’s first number 1 single on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. A video for “The Pot” was scheduled to shoot over the 2006 holiday season.”Jambi” was the third radio single and received airtime on both Modern and Mainstream Rock formats.

Critical reception

10,000 Days received generally favorable critical reception, albeit with less enthusiasm than previous Tool albums. Most critics praised the album as another example of Tool’s musicianship. Critics who gave 10,000 Days a relatively low score questioned the merits of its ambient interludes, which Tool have also used on their previous releases. In addition, the song “Vicarious” was nominated for the “Best Hard Rock Performance” Grammy. The album also received a Grammy Award in 2006 for Best Recording Package. In 2008, 10,000 Days garnered another Grammy nomination when “The Pot” was nominated for “Best Hard Rock Performance”.
