Tool — Intolerance lyrics

I don't want to be hostile.
I don't want to be dismal.
But I don't want to rot in an apathetic existence either.
See
I want to believe you,
And I want to trust
And I want to have faith to put away the dagger.
But you lie, cheat and steal.
And yet
I tolerate you.
Veil of virtue hung to hide your method
While I smile and laugh and dance
And sing your praise and glory.
Shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma
As I smile and laugh and dance
And sing your glory
While you
Lie, cheat, and steal.
How can I tolerate you?
Our guilt, our blame,
I've been far too sympathetic.
I am not innocent.
You are not innocent.
No one is innocent.
I will no longer tolerate you
Even if I must go down beside you.
Because,
No one is innocent
