Lyrics by System of a Down.

On this one, I think I need to make my comments on the song first. Of all the songs I've posted, this song has the starkest contrast between the screaming rage, and absolutely beautiful musicianship. I feel like I want to describe what you are hearing at any given moment in the song, but it wouldn't do the song justice. It flows seamlessly between when it's hard and thrashing, and when the lead singer's voice floats on the air. I had to stand at a listening station at the mall, (3 weeks after I bought the album) with the volume all the way up, to hear the piano lilting in the background for the first time. It was like I heard the song for the first time. And I hadn't really read the lyrics all the way till I posted them now. There was even more depth here, than I originally thought, before I decided to post it.

So what am I saying? You don't have to buy the album, but you NEED to hear this song. It is on the album "Toxicity." The store Hot Topic in the mall had it on their listening station when I was there last.

We're in this together.

Wake up (wake up),
Grab a brush and put a little makeup,
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup,
(hide the scars to fade away the)
Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?
Here you go create another fable
You wanted to,
Grab a brush and put a little makeup,
You wanted to,
Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup,
You wanted to,
Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?
You wanted to,
I don't think you trust,
in, my, self righteous suicide,
I, cry, when angels deserve to die,

Father/into your hands/I commend my spirit,
Father, into your hands,
why have you forsaken me,
in your eyes forsaken me,
in your thoughts forsaken me

trust in my self righteous suicide
