There's some out of focus guy in a business suit. He meets at a table with two other out of focus, deformed guys in business suits. They cut an apple and throw up on the table. Then there's a black guy, a dangerous ball, and a bunch of eyes.
Anything that discordant is probably a Tool video and in this case, PARABOLA.
Tool videos are often stop motion and so far removed from the song and lyrics they accompany that it isn't worth bothering an attempt at making any connection. Your interpretations and philosophy be damned, Tool have always taken a "Make of it what you will" approach to their albums in general and videos in particular. The song is merely background to the alien, somehow disturbing, story being told. If David Lynch wasn't worried about getting into theaters, he'd probably make movies like the short film/music videos of Tool.
We barely remember what came before this precious moment
We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment
This holy reality, this holy experience
In this holy reality, in this holy experience
Twirling round with this familiar parable
This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality
This song has its own page at Wikipedia.
