The Patient Tool

Album Lateralus

[Verse 1]
A groan of tedium escapes me
Startling the fearful
Is this a test? It has to be
Otherwise I can't go on
Draining patience, drain vitality
This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old

[Verse 2]
But I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith
And I'm still right here
Wait it out
Going to wait it out
Be patient (wait it out)

[Chorus]
If there were no rewards to reap
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away by now

I'm gonna wait it out

[Verse 3]
If there were no desire to heal
The damaged and broken met along
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away by now

[Bridge]
I still may. And I still may
Be patient
I must keep reminding myself of this...

[Chorus]
