Tool - Forty Six & 2

My shadow's
Shedding skin and I've been picking scabs again.
I'm down digging through my old muscles looking for a clue.
I've been crawling on my belly clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own confused and insecure delusions for a piece to cross me over or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in my shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow's shedding skin I've been picking my scabs again.
I've been crawling on my belly clearing out what could've been I've been wallowing in my own chaotic and insecure delusions. 
I wanna feel the change consume me, feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and cleansing I've endured within my shadow.
Change is coming. Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

[ I choose to live and to grow, take and give and to move, learn and love and to cry, kill and die and to be paranoid and to lie, hate and fear and to do what it takes to move through. I choose to live and to lie, kill and give and to die, learn and love and to do what it takes to step through. ]

See my shadow changing, stretching up and over me soften this old armor. hoping I can clear the way by stepping through my shadow, coming out the other side. Step into the shadow. Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

The meaning of:
The title references an idea first conceived by Drunvalo Melchizedek concerning the possibility of reaching a state of evolution at which the body would have two more than the normal 46 total chromosomes and leave a currently disharmonious state.[3][4] The premise is that humans would deviate from the current state of human DNA which contains 44 autosomes and 2 sex chromosomes. The next step of evolution would likely result in human DNA being reorganized into 46 and 2 chromosomes, according to Melchizedek.
Furthermore, the song references a wish to experience change through the "shadow"; an idea which represents the parts of one's personality that one hates and fears, which also exists as a recurring theme in the work of Carl Jung.[5]

A quanto ho capito si tratta di studi che hanno a fare con la New Age, fonte da cui i Tool sembrano attingere a piene mani abbastanza spesso.
Ma tralasciando questo significato più specifico, questo brano lo adoro perché tratta, comunque, di una sperimentazione, un cambiamento che avvolge l'essere e di cui quest'ultimo necessita. 
Per me è un inno alla vita nella sua pienezza, nel suo insieme di fatti, eventi, emozioni, scelte, sfide, un invito dionisiaco all'esistenza e alla scoperta della propria essenza.
