Tool “The Grudge” from Lateralus

Time heals many things, but grudge isn’t one of them.

Unexpressed grudge festers inside, shimmering and stirring, rotting into something deeper, darker and denser.

If you are hosting venom inside, it will not stop being itself just by being stored.  You have to get it out.

Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity
Calculate what we will or will not tolerate
Desperate to control all and everything
Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen

Wear the grudge like a crown. Desperate to control
Unable to forgive. And sinking deeper

Defining, confining, sinking deeper
Controlling, Defining, and we’re sinking deeper

Saturn comes back around to show you everything
Lets you choose what you will, will not see and then
Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again
Spits you out like a child, light and innocent

Saturn comes back around. Lifts you up like a child or
Drags you down like a stone
To consume you till you choose to let this go

Sometimes people don’t realize that the reason forgiveness is to be bestowed is not to absolve the guilty.

But it’s so the accuser can heal, and move on.

If you don’t want to be dragged, to be defined by your resentment, then you must let it go.

Forgiveness will set you free.
