01. Empty Walls

Music & lyrics by Serj Tankian
Your empty walls...
Your empty walls...
Pretentious attention
Dismissive apprehension
Don't waste your time, on coffins today
When we decline, from the confines of our mind
Don't waste your time, on coffins today

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

I want you
To be
Left behind those empty walls
Don't
You see
From behind those empty walls

Those empty walls
When we decline, from the confines of our mind
Don't waste your time, on coffins today

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

I want you
To be
Left behind those empty walls
Don't
You see
From behind those empty walls
Want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
Don't
You see
From behind those empty walls

From behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
The walls
From behind those empty walls

I loved you,
Yesterday
Before you killed my family

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

Don't you see their bodies burning?
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication

I want you
To be
Left behind those empty walls
Told you
To see
From behind those empty walls
Want you to be, left behind those empty walls
Told you
To see
From behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
From behind those fucking walls
From behind those goddamned walls
Those walls...
Those walls...


02. The Unthinking Majority

We don't need your democracy.
Execute them kindly for me.
Take them by their filthy nostrils
Put them up in doggy hostels.

We don't need your hypocrisy
Execute real democracy.
Post-industrial society
The unthinking majority

Anti-depressants
Controlling tools of your system
Making life more tolerable (x2)

03. Money

Money,
All for money,
Save your money,
Hide your money,
Stuff your money,
Hump your money
Keep your money
All for money,

Waning patience
People's appetite
Disposition
This possession
Dispossessed from all the attractions,
Dancing bears of eroticism,
Self absorbed delusion
Inclusion of dysfunction
I now await the triumphant
Lost baggage, train station,

The causes of ineptitude
Can be traced to my mandatory down,
The causes of my servitude
Can be traced to the tyranny of

Money,
All for money,
Make your money,
Hide your money,
Stuff your money,
Hump your money
Save your money
All for money,

My final surrender
Away from inclusion
I now await the triumphant
Left baggage, train station,

The causes of ineptitude
Can be traced to my mandatory down,
The causes of my servitude
Can be traced to the tyranny of a down
The causes of ineptitude
Can be traced to my mandatory down,
The causes of my servitude
Can be traced to the tyranny of

Money,
All for money,
Make your money,
Hide your money,
Stuff your money,
Hump your money
Save your money
Take your money
Hide your money
All for money
Make your money
Hide your money
Stuff your money
Hump your money
Take your money
All for money,
Money, money, money, money.


04. Feed Us

Maybe we believe
She was ready to go
In the morning light
Maybe you believe
That she was made of gold
In the east where you killed her
You lead us
When you need to feed us
You comfortably delete us
When you need your fetus,

You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out,

Goodbye, goodbye,

She speaks unrehearsed
Lauguages from skin
In the morning light
Painting shadows on the
faces of the dead
In front of their windows,

You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Before its too late,

Do you know that life is ending,
As we go, the dots connecting,
We had our chance to save the garden,
As it dies, our souls will harden,
With these words chastising your conscience
Were breaking through and praying for
transcendence.

But you deceived us all now,

You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out.


05. Saving Us

Why do we sit around and
Break each other's hearts tonight?
Why do we dance around
The issues 'till the morning light?
When we sit and talk
And tear each other's lives apart.
You were the one to tell me go...

But you were the one for me,
And now you're going through the door,
When you take that step
I love you baby more and more,
We need to laugh and sing and cry
And warm each other's hearts tonight,
Having fun of everything
And loving all of mother god

Tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
You're carrying us,
Carrying us,
You're saving us,
You're saving us...

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
Breaking us,
You're killing us,
Killing us,
You're saving us...

Why do we sit around and
break each other's hearts tonight?
Why do we dance around
the issues 'till the morning light?
When we sit and talk
and tear each other's lives apart.
You were the one to tell me go...

But you were the one for me,
And now you're going through the door,
When you take that step
I love you baby more and more,
We need to laugh and sing and cry
and warm each other's hearts tonight,
Having fun of everything
and loving all of mother god

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
You're killing us,
Killing us,
You're saving us,
You're saving us...

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
You're killing us,
Killing us,
You're saving us...

Ohhhhh...

Ohhhhh...

Forever I lie,
Forever I lie,
Forever,
Forever...

Forever I lie,
Forever I lie,
Forever,
And never and never again...

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
You're killing us,
Killing us,
You're saving us,
You're saving us...

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
You're killing us,
Killing us,
You're saving us,
You're saving us...

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
(Forever I lie)
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
(Forever I lie)
You're killing us,
Killing us,
(Forever)
You're saving us,
You're saving us...
(And never...)

You're tearing us,
You're tearing us,
(Forever I lie)
You're breaking us,
You're breaking us,
(Forever I lie)
You're killing us,
Killing us,
(Forever)
You're saving us,
(And never...)


06. Sky Is Over

Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,
That you cradle the sun, sun
Living in remorse,
Sky is over,

Don't you want to hold me baby,
Disappointed, going crazy,

Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,

Behind closes eyes lie
The minds ready to awaken you,
Are you at war with land
And all of it's creatures,
Your not-so-gentle persuasion
Has been known to wreck economies
Of countries, of empires, the sky is over,

Don't you want to hold me baby,
Disappointed, going crazy,

Not even from the sun,
Not even from the sun
Not even from the sun,
Don't you want me to run,

Even though you can't afford
The sky is over,
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
I don't want to see you go,
The sky is over
Even though we can't afford
The sky is over,
The sky is over us.


07. Baby

You came to me within a dream
Not everyone is who they seem,
All these words we cant redeem,
Like the great magic of our world,
Corroborated by your words,
Splitting planets into thirds.

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you

To all the leaves that fall in vain,
While god and goddess go insane
All these words in your domain,
The watches kill time as the books read,
Inadvertently we bleed
Fighting for what we deceive,

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you

Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Now why cant you see that you always
perturb me so
Nearing the end of the world, just leave me
alone
leave me alone
Why cant you see that you always perturb me
so
Nearing the end of the world, leave me alone,
Leave me alone.

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you


08. Honking Antelope

Why dont you go photograph
Everything that ever passed in time,
Indigenous traces, tribal chiefs,
Vanishing hereditary lines,
Poets gone wild on the muse
Prophets all destroying the Dao,

When you see that honking antelope,
The secret dance of snakes, the tales of it all,

Nature based being will survive
Apocalyptic days of now,
Poets gone wild on the muse
Prophets all destroying the Dao,

When you see that honking antelope,
The secret dance of snakes, the tales of it all,

Of it all,
Run away with me now,
Run away with me now,
My life,

We are the cause of a world thats gone wrong,
Nature will survive us human dogs after all,

Why don't you go photograph
Everything that ever passed in time,
Poets gone wild on the muse
Prophets all destroying the Dao,

When you see that honking antelope,
The secret dance of snakes, the tales of it all,
When you see that honking antelope,
The secret dance of snakes, the tales of it all,

Of it all,
Run away with me now,
Run away with me now,
My love,

We are the cause of a world thats gone
wrong,
Nature will survive us human dogs after all,
We are the cause of a world thats gone wrong,
Wouldn't it be great to heal the world
With only a song


09. Lie Lie Lie

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie [3x]

My baby, my baby
let me know
because you love me, you love me
Let me go
and you're my lover, you pay me
Twice my size
And on your knees you lay
In my Thighs,

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,

My baby, My baby
let me go
And if you love me, you love me
Let me go,
Cause I'm your brother, your brother,
Have some pride,
And now you love me, you love me
Then die tonight

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,
Broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
And while she fell I delightfully said,

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie [3x]

She took my hand and I let her go
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Took my hand and she ended it all,
Broke her little bones on the boulders below,
And while she fell, I smiled.

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie [3x]


10. Raise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition

Come lay it down, wont you,
Come burn it down, cant you,
Lay it down, the guns above the ground
Come lay it down, wont you,
Come burn it down, cant you,
Lay it down, the guns above the ground

Nlelith is a prophet
From the prophet came the king
From the king came the pauper
From the pauper came the swing
From the swing came creation
From creation came love,
You don't know what this love is all about,

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,
Life affirming and our spiritual trust

Lay it down, wont you,
Come burn it down, cant you,
Lay it down, the guns above the ground

Nlelith is a prophet
From the prophet came the king
From the king came the pauper
From the pauper came the swing
From the swing came creation
From creation came love,
You don't know what this love is all about,

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,

Buddha, Mohammad and the Hindu
Lost 100
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,
People still ask when will Armageddon begin,

Dragging my feet any longer through the
pussy litter, [2x]

Nlelith is a prophet
From the prophet came the king
From the king came the pauper
From the pauper came the swing
From the swing came creation
From creation came love,
You dont know what this love is all about,

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Praise praise the Lord and pass the
ammunition,

Do we ever have enough,
When we see that blue dove
Do we ever have enough
When we see that blue dove
We want to go where no ones been
No ones been

Come lay it down, wont you,
Come burn it down, cant you,
Lay it down, the guns above the ground
Wont you.


11. Beethoven's Cunt

Brushing, touching, feeling on your shoulders,
Believing, appealing, kneeling in your worlds,
Oceans are combined,

Being that I love you so much
In the end they all will say
Breaking someone else's heart again,

Find the little evil perpetrator
And feed him to the hungry alligator
You want it all,
You want it all,
Love is not about the profits
Nor the riches in your dreams,

The arms of time are breaking off,
Civilization is on trial,
The clocks eliminating time
Do you believe in me

I've been walking through these dead farms
But I don't mind,
Ive been screaming through these dead lungs,
But I can't find,

Being that I love you so much
In the end they all will say
Breaking someone else's heart again,

Find the little evil perpetrator
And feed him to the hungry alligator
You want it all,
You want it all,
Love is not about the profits
Nor the riches in your dreams,

The arms of time are breaking off,
Civilization is on trial,
The clocks eliminating time
Do you believe, in me

But lately I've been blind
You leave me all alone, left in time,
You left me here to die, left in time,
Leave me all alone, left in time,

The arms of time are breaking off,
Civilization is on trial,
The clocks eliminating time
Do you believe, in nothing.

But lately I've been blind
Leave me all alone, left in time.


12. Elect The Dead

Arms are raised above the sky,
But all I want is me

You are there beside the night
But all I want is me
All I want is me.

Love we know
Comes from inside,
But all I want is me,
All I want is me.

Death we know
Comes to us alive
But all I want is you,

Death we know
Comes to all of us alive
But all I want is you,
All I need is you,
All I want.


13. The Reverend King

Music & lyrics by Serj Tankian
The viscera, application of death in your own
Your own time, your wedges of strength lay beyond you
Discover what it is that you need
The reverend king said

All the lights are gone (all the lights are gone)
All the lights are gone and the turns, the turns that turn us into space
Seeing is believing in,
Believing in seeing is seeing in believing
The reverend king said

Dead
Question me for the life of my subjects
But you had a craved miracle

The viscera, application of death in your own
Your own time, your wedges of strength lay beyond you
Discover what it is that you need
The reverend king said

All the lights are gone (all the lights are gone)
All the lights are gone and the turns, the turns that turn us into space
Seeing is believing in,
Believing in seeing is seeing in believing


14. Blue

I'm wishin' and wishin' away at you God
I'm wishin' and wishin' away at you God

I don't see nothing but pain and misery,
Cause you are the one for me
Why can't it all be true?
Can I escape with my blue fallen reverie?
Why can't it all be true?
Why can't it all be true?
Can't it all be true...

I'm wishin' and wishin' away at you God
I'm wishin' and wishin' away at you God

Suddenly, I believe you are the one for me
Graciously you move through my closed hearts artery
Can I escape with my blue fallen reverie?
Why can't it all be true?
Why can't it all be true?

Suddenly, I believe you are the one for me
Graciously you move through my closed hearts artery
Can I escape with my blue fallen reverie?
Why can't it all be true?
Why can't it all be true?

Wishin' and wishin' away at you God
Wishin' and wishin' away at you God...


15. Falling Stars

Please raise your child to day
The way that you were born to play
Way that we all disappear
Allowing us to shade our fears

Pain, your every stamp
When you fault enough to wanna die
When you cry
You will find

Falling stars drain every night
Falling stars drain

Please raise your child to day
The way that you were told to play
Way that we all disappear
Allowing us to shade our fears

Pain, your every stamp
When you fault enough to wanna die
When you cry
You will find

Falling stars drain every night
Falling stars drain every night
Falling stars drain

In our arrested silence
We plead to our insane gods
In our voices
In our heads
Like the silence in the woods
To stop accusing man and his cool culture
Economic, global domination
The demons remains between that which is sought by the few - profit
And that which is sought by the most - peace, oh peace

Go now when you
Why can't you see that I always belong to me?
Now when we
Why can't you see that you always belong...
Fall, falling stars drain every night
Falling stars drain every night

I can't believe that you wanted me so much pain
Every,
Rie ra rie ra rie ra rie
Rie ra rie ra rie ra rie

From behind those goddamned walls
Those walls...
