aenima albümünün , belkide en güzel parçası . gerçi bir şarkıyı çekip çıkarmak pek bir güç albümden . sevgili maynard james keenan los angeles/california depremlerinin l.a i birgün yıkacağını ve okyanusa karışacağını mı anlatmaya çalışmış , yoksa tüketen neslin inanılmaz üstünlüğü ile bilinçsiz üremenin toplumlar üzerindeki aşırı-çoğalması dolayısıyla , deyim yerindeyse *basacak *toprak* kalmayacak , siz yüzmeyi öğrenin en iyisi* mi demiş , yoksa küresel ısınmaya mı gönderme yapmış orası muallakta . muallakta olmayan tek şey mükemmellik .

serbest çağrışım-süper edit : sayın maynard james keenan sanırım aynı sayın orhan pamuk gibi tanrıyı (eğer var ise) dişi bir varlık olarak görüyor . allah-baba dan ziyade , allah-ana şeklinde.zira şarkıda sifonu çekecek ve dünyayı yıkacak ana tanrıyı resmetmektedir kanımca .
malaz bu derece yoğun bir entri girdiyse kesinlikle ağır bi rock şarkısıdır dedim kendi kendime
