This song is rather an Apache Prayer to the Creator in Humility. Translation is "hear my feeble cry". Its far deeper than meets the ear. Bill McConnell, who is an accomplished survivalist, is also an accomplished musician. He gave up a musical carreer to follow his heart and the ways of the Earth. I love listening to it and Grand Fathers Peoples prayers still live 500 years later because of Bill.

It is possible, that this particular piece of art is not meant to be understood, but perhaps simply enjoyed by one.
-ride the spiral!
Tool have always been known for those somewhat special intermissions on their albums, so called filler-songs. (Cesaro Summability, (-) Ions, Eon Blue Apocalypse and so on.) They serve for the most part no lyrical meanings, but they are short, ambient tracks that "prepares" the listener for the next song.
Lipan Conjuring is one of those tracks, and it certainly seemed to come out of nowhere during my first time listing through 10 000 days.
The song is basically one minute and eleven seconds of what sounds like Native Americans chanting and rattling bones. Though it's not sung by Tool's vocalist, you can hear distorted scream at the end that I suppose might be Maynard's.
The singing on Lipan Conjuring was done Bill McConnel, the only guest appearnce on the album. (Apart from the doctor and the nurse on Lost Keys.)
McConnel is supposedly a survivalist and tracker with an interest for ancient philosophy and arts. That's about all the information that there is about this mysterious man. Needless to say, he certainly did a great job creating a dark yet quite relaxing Apache exorcism prayer/chant on Tool's fourth album.
