The Lyrics

This song is an interpretation of the different time signatures used in the original song, hence the new title, "Rythms". Its quite hard to sing this to yourself without the original playing in the background, so I suggest listening to it as well. Some things may not line up 100%perfectly, but they do if you sing em right. Good luck. PS, no I didn't figure out ALL the different time sigs, but the ones I put down are correct to the best of my knowledge. I would have done all of them, but there were no lyrics in some of the parts and therefore I couldn't include them in the lyrics of the new song.
I know this piece's beat
Cuz I mapped the stressed beats' pattern
It is interesting, and definitely different
Now it changes juxtaposing the same beat with vocal triplets
One bar of 5/4... 4/4, 3/4. Showing off our cool little pattern...
The guy that trained our drummer then deserves a hug from all us so
We add a beat to 5/4's end changing to our instrumental part...

I know this piece's beat
Cuz I wrote the whole thing down
Great drums, a tapping bass, it doesn't mean I studied music
I took a marker, ticked down stresses, watched the tempo, now it's over
I love the piece's nice surprises, for example, this coming up part:

The 5/4 part then moves from the very beginning,
And it moves to the very end.
That whole part's four times in succession.

And now it's back to the peice's beat
Oh man that last part was hard
There's more where that came from
Musicians left wondering
I've done the math just so you know I really am not only guessing
For example, a 7/4, is coming after, the extra beat part...

Tool's music has
A tendency to
Get really tricky
For us musicians

Real treat for music lovers
Real treat for music lovers

I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
I know this piece's beat
