A Perfect Circle Quotes:
"Don't disturb the beast, the tempermental goat, the snail while he's feeding on the Rose. Stay frozen, compromising what I will, I am. Bend around the wind, silently thrown about again I'm treading so soft and lightly. Compromising my will, I am."
~Rose - A Perfect Circle

"Here I am expecting just a little bit too much from the wounded. But I see, see through it all, See through, and see you. So I threw you the obvious. Do you see what occurs behind the eyes of a fallen angel - Eyes of a tragedy."
~3 Libras - A Perfect Circle

"Don't fret precious i'm here step away from the window go back to sleep safe from truth and choice and other poision devils"

"See,they don't give a @#$%& about you like i do"
A Perfect Circle

"counting bodies like sheep to the rythm of the war drum"
