This is a single from Tool's third studio album 'Lateralus'. The album emerged after a four-year legal dispute between Tool and their former label. Ahead of the release, the band provided a 12-song tracklist with fake titles such as "Riverchrist", "Numbereft", and "Musick". This was the height of file-sharing networks and Napster was flooded with bogus files bearing the titles' names.

The prolonged run times of most songs on 'Lateralus' posed a challenge to music programmers. The video for "Parabola" is ten-and-a-half minutes long. Rolling Stone wrote that "Drums, bass, and guitars move in jarring cycles of hyperhowl and near-silent death march... running times of most of Lateralus' thirteen tracks are misleading; the entire album rolls and stomps with suitelike purpose."
