Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums is the tenth track from eMOTIVe.

Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums was chosen as a single for eMOTIVe. It is often regarded as a remix of "Pet", from the previous album, Thirteenth Step. However, on the aMOTION DVD music video commentary, Maynard James Keenan states that it is a second part of "Pet", a continuation.

LyricsEdit

Don't fret precious I'm here.
Step away from the window.
Go back to sleep.
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils.
See, they don't give a fuck about you, like I do.

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons.
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason.
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices, son.
They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
Isolate and save you from yourself
