Fibonacci Sequence in the music of Tool

I'm not a big fan of Tool, and I don't know if this was intentional or just one of those things that periodically happens given an large number of songs written and produced, but a high school student found what appears to be a Fibonacci sequence in this song, specifically the lyrics and how many syllables each line has.  Later the lyrics talk about spirals.

It's not perfect, as he admits, but sort of interesting anyway.
