Fountains of Passion Along the Watchtower

Today is now Triple Tuesday. I am craving some Parabol(a). It is one of my all-time favourite songs. I find the lyrics to be amongst the most profound ever found in a rock & roll song. Today there is no audio mashup. It's pure video today.

I know I already posted a video mashup combining the Fountain with Parabol. Today is a much better version, since it uses both Parabol and Parabola. Mashed with the Fountain they make an impressive, moving and beautiful mash. Perhaps less moving if you haven't seen the movie but I wouldn't know.

I highly recommend checking out the lyrics - songs 6 & 7

*edit* unfortunately this brilliant video has been pulled for copyright violations. A not-quite-as-good-but-still-awesome version can be found here (unfortunately it has embedding disabled):

I have this instead as a substitute for the Fountain video, the original songs with accompanying lyrics.

**edit (again)** I think I found it again!

I love those songs so much I have to hear them again, this time mashed to the Passion. Just goes to show I'm not the only one who finds profound meaning in these songs

This last mash is a cover of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower". I have no clue who does it, although it sort of sounds like Tom Cochrane. It is mashed with the Watchmen, another of my favorites.

*bonus edit*
I just had to add this amazing little explanatory video set to another Tool Classic, "Forty Six and Two" as it pertains to Jungian Analysis. Abso-fucking-lutely brilliant!!
