System of a Down Lyrics


Not long ago, accepted sonic belief held that rock music,
certainly hard rock music, had been stretched, manipulated
and tinkered with to its logical end. With no new forms
looming, the genre would slip into malaise and the kids
would look elsewhere for an outlet. Enter Los Angeles
quartet System of a Down, who, over seven years and two
albums have revived and revitalized heavy music with their
manic brand of post-everything hardcore. Millions of
records on, they charge into the new century as living
proof that for those brave enough More...

Review about System of a Down songs
Self righteous | Reviewer: LostedSister
    ------ About the song chop suey performed by System of a Down

Everyone has their own interpretation of these lyrics...words that are meaningful to some and not at all the others...I lost my sister to suicide...her demons got the best of her unable to cope with her relapse after almost 2 years clean plus the stolen items from family matters to people that didn't matter to her her demons made her into someone that her herself hated if she would have giving the family a chance to help we would have all been there again to stand by her side and be her support system however she could no longer live with herself and make her choice to end her life and i do think that she thought she was self righteous in what she did thinking she was saving the family some how...she was one of the most beautiful people inside and out today she would have been 23 and I find myself listening to this song and believe it or not it makes me feel a little better but doesn't stop the pain

Death | Reviewer: Fede
    ------ About the song Hypnotize performed by System of a Down

First time I heard this song (I speak spanish) I thought it said "I'm just sitting in my garden waiting for my death".... Now I know the truth, and damn, I really liked the "death" one, but it's an amazing song anyway

    ------ About the song Toxicity performed by System of a Down

America, Bushm Obama? Say what??? I'm not American so i couldn't give a shit what people think of the place.
Disorder, disorder, disorder !!!! The song relates to people with ADD, thing Serj himself has it too. Eating seeds (taking meds). Some between sacred silence and sleep (its the only time when the disorder can be seen. Flashlight reveries caught in the headlights (blinded and unable to focus)
Now, how do yo own the world (Goverments/ Pharma Companie, how can they control this problem??)
When I became the sun (when I took control, and made peoples lives more worth while)
Thats it! Now give up yapping on about politics and shit and take your fucking meds!!!! hahaha

    ------ About the song Violent Pornography performed by System of a Down

I don't listen to this band but I read the lyrics and it doesn't say anything about selling porn. It is mostly mindless rabble but in the end it say that we are being brain washed so turn your tv off this could also mean internet.

System is great! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Radio/Video performed by System of a Down

I heard a Story, hat system of A Down werde going to have an Interview, with famous TV - Showmen called Danny and Lisa (im not Form USA so i don't know them).
For some reason the Interview has beenn cancelled in the last minute, and they were thrown out of the door, so they wrote this song about this incident.
I don't know how far this story is true, but I think its a possible way to interpret the song!
But as it is with all SOAD songs, everybody has to decide for his own, how far he interprets their songs, that's one of the good points about system ;)

awsome song but... | Reviewer: anonymous
    ------ About the song chop suey performed by System of a Down

Oh for gods sake does every song gave to be related to jesus christ or any other religion ? (Im not atheist) bloody hell just like the song for how it is and not its meaning and there is no right or wrong way to interpret a song each mans interpretation is his own.

    ------ About the song Prison Song performed by System of a Down

You're the one who should better shut up. I don't know where you have read this, but LSD was synthesized for the first time by two Swiss chemists (Albert Hofmann and Arthur Stoll), and none of them have been disclaimed as being Nazi... Get your facts straight, LSD has nothing to do with WWII.

amazing song, amazing band, just wow. | Reviewer: soad is the best band on the planet.
    ------ About the song Mind performed by System of a Down

Great song!!!
one of the best intros they ever made, shavo really stands out. and so does the classic serj creepy whisper.
daron does a really good job of keeping the energy up which his high-octane riffs that even sound like slayer or metallica at one point.
serj is absolutely amazing. he growls, he sings, he whispers, he croaks, he does everything and all so perfect to fit the nature of this song.
john also does really well here, but he has done better.

overall, 6th best soad song and one of my all time faves :)

    ------ About the song P.L.U.C.K. performed by System of a Down

Well, reading the comments of the most part of turks here, makes me think I'm not that wrong to totally detest such apes...Dodecanesum, Cyrenaica, Lybia say you hi, you countless pigs scumming the pages of history...LONG LIVE ARMENIA, LONG LIVE GREECE, LONG LIVE SRBIJA, LONG LIVE THE TRUE SPIRIT OF BYSANTIUM AND CONSTANTINOPLE, WHICH WILL NEVER BE ISTANBUL! Now, go masturbate in Taksim with the images of gay Ataturk, scum!

That would be the right payback you would deserve, should a person get so much low at your very infamous level...what instead I'd rather tell you, stop believing the crap your governments taught you, start learning from some enlightened minds belonging to your culture who helped us unfolding the truth ON THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE, and show the world is just your government who is stuck still in a medieval conception of reality, whilst the Turkish population recognizes the mistakes, the crimes, which their forefathers carried out several years ago...Armenia is the main example, but we can go closer, in Europe (Balkans, Greece, Bulgaria...ANYWHERE) to ask how they may see Turkish people (without considering some very bad examples which you may have exported especially in Eastern Europe...and here I speak for personal experience)...
