The best songs form the album Lateralus by the band Tool.

The Top TenXW


Ok. Lateralus has to be the most unique and best song ever written and performed in history of music. I can hear this song all day and it would never get old, I saw tool in concert last year and lateralus live was beyond anything I could ever explain. God what a song and what a band

This is one of my favorite songs and possibly the most epic song I have ever heard - CaptainComedy17

Quite possibly the greatest vocal angst and explosion I have ever experienced from a vocalist. Absolutely amazing.

I love this song. Tool's best. It made me cry when I listened to it all the way through. People don't have the patience nowadays. This song has so much power and emotions. The psychological aspects of this song could fill a book. It deserves higher ranking and is INTENSELY underrated. PLEASE, PLEASE listen to it. I'm begging you. Please.

Don't understand why it is not in the top five tool songs of all time. This song is insanely underrated. It is more epic than lateralus and also has more meaning too.

You want to know what Tool is really about? You should listen Disposition, Reflection, and Triad and listen to it as if it were one big song. Reflection is for me the greatest piece this band has ever made, its just graundbreaking and brain blasting sound.

Truly a masterpiece

this song is simply amazing. the part where the lyrics go "i'm still right here, giving blood, keeping faith, I'm still right here"- those lyrics give me chills every time I hear them. this is one tool song that I always think of first when I want to listen to the band's music

I love the bass on this song and it is so haunting. Maynard's performance on this song is one of his greatest.

This is a very underrated song. One of Tool's best, it encompasses the mentality of Maynard during a much more confusing time of his life.

Disagree on the comment. I think its about the final release of all the confusion. I feel nothing but his peace while listening


This should be played right before parabola. they are one. also very awesome transition between the songs.


Not the best song on this album, but it should still be higher.

This is the second best headbanging song on this album besides ticks and leeches
