Falling stars, drain

Please raise your child today

The way that you were told to play

The way that we all disappeared

Allowing us to shatters fears

Pain, your every step

When you fooled enough to want to die

When you cry

You will find

Falling stars, drain every night

Falling stars, drain every night

Falling stars, drain

In an arrested silence (In an arrested silence),

We plead to our insane gods (We plead to our insane gods),

And their voices in our heads (Their voices in our heads),

Like the silence in the woods,

To stop appeasing man

And his cruel culture of economic global domination (domination).

The balance remains between

That which is sought by the few (WEAPONS!), PROFIT,

And that which is sought by the most, PEACE (Oh, peace).

Falling stars, drain every night

Falling stars, drain every night

I can’t believe that you wanted me so much pain, every

Serj Tankian Saving Us

Why do we sit around and

Break each others hearts tonight,

Why do we dance around

The issues till the morning light,

When we sit and talk and

Tear each others lives apart,

You were the one to tell me go,

But you were the one for me

And now youre 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 others hearts tonight,

Observing the fun of everything

And loving all of mother God,

Tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, youre breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us, youre saving us,

Youre tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us,

Why do we sit around and

Break each others hearts tonight,

Why do we dance around

The issues till the morning light,

When we sit and talk and

Tear each others lives apart,

You were the one to tell me go,

But you were the one for me

And now youre 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 others hearts tonight,

Observing the fun of everything

And loving all of mother God,

Tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, youre breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us, youre saving us,

Youre tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us,

Forever alive, forever alive, forever, forever,

Forever alive, forever alive, forever,

Never and ever again,

Youre tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, youre breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us, youre saving us,

Youre tearing us, youre tearing us,

Youre breaking us, breaking us,

Youre killing us, killing us,

Youre saving us,

Forever alive, forever alive, forever, forever,

Forever alive, forever alive, forever,

Never and ever again.

Serj Tankian Reality TV

Buzzing from watching others dramatic lives

As the TV slyly stares at me

Body piercings, like those of

Ancient Egyptians kinky slave prisoners fly at me

Placing a thorn upon her head

Slashing her wrist, rowing around on her cavity

Being chased by little kids

Playing miniature toy accordions, her destiny

I abhor the whore who calls herself reality, reality TV

I abhor the whore who calls herself reality, reality TV

Fundamentally mental, deprived of meaning,

Hedonistic theatrical entropy

The gaining of lost confidence,

From the failures of others cheering

“No, that can’t be me”

I abhor the whore who calls herself reality, reality TV

I abhor the whore who calls herself reality, reality TV

A genetically mysterious horde of specimens,

Sharing their empty lives with me

Grammatically inept common denominators,

Destroying all of life’s mystery

Body piercings, those of

Ancient kinky Egyptians slave prisoners fly at me

Nipples, tongues, testicles, cheeks

Nipples, tongues, testicles, cheeks

The sexually oblique ritual was just called glee

Body piercings, those of

Serj Tankian Disowned Inc.

I can feel you far away,

your hesitation matching mine.

Sadness left me far away yea,

Your contemplation turn to wine

An old man stares at me

In mutual bizarre reverie

Laugh at thy neighbor

Pretend you are sane, just the same

You survived in vain

Laugh at thy neighbor

Pretend you are sane, just the same

You survived in vain

Time is the father of existence

Rhyme, the brother of resistance

Broken down by men in their crazy mind

Void is the mother of unknown distance

Will, the sister of persistence

Stripping under the elusive sky

The potion of devotion

Euphoric scriptures of the ocean

Laugh at they neighbour

Pretend you are sane just the same

You survived in vain

Time is the father of existence

Rhyme, brother of resistance

Broken down by men in their crazy mind

Void is the mother of unknown distance

Will, the sister of persistence

Stripping under the elusive sky

I felt so alone

‘Til you came into my life

And stopped the pain

I felt so alone then you came into my life

And poured the rain

I feel so alone dressed in the dark silk clothing of your own distain

I feel so disowned since your children took our arms in your own name.

Serj Tankian Harakiri

We’re the day birds

Deciding to fly against the sky

Within our dreams, we all wake up

To kiss the ones who are born to die

We’re the greying herds

Hurting each other with our lies

Within our dreams, we all wake up

To kiss the ones who are born…

Born to die

Born to die

The drum fish

They beached themselves in Harakiri

The blackbirds

They fell in thousands from the sky

Their red wings

Streaming down from the higher seas

Deflected by the ground

They crowned the sun

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

When their time was done (Their time was done)

They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

Washed by the sun

Our statues

The soaring edifice of our times

Detracted from the ways of the wise

The future will view all history as a crime

So father, tell us when is the time to rise

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

When their time was done (Their time was done)

They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

We’re the day birds

Deciding to fly against the sky

Within our dreams, we all wake up

To kiss the ones who are born to die

We’re the greying herds

Hurting each other with our lies

Within our dreams, we all wake up

To kiss the ones who are born…

Born to die

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

When their time was done (Their time was done)

They were drowned by the only one (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

They crowned the sun (They crowned the sun)

But I believe that they are free

And we believe that they are free

Cause I believe that they are me

Washed by the sun

Serj Tankian Wings Of Summer

Well, I, I, wanna fly fly

On the wings, wings of summer

But you, you put your eyes

You put your eyes on mine

Go, perfect your fall

And no matter what

Smile for them all

For today, we see never

Tomorrow’s menu reads forever

I, I wanna fly

On the wings, of summer

But you, put your eyes, on mine

I, I want to fly

On the wings of summer

But you, you put your eyes, on mine

Don’t confess to the crime

Till you lavish in your concubine

When you think you got clever

They’ll wheel you in and pull the lever

Now I, I want to fly

On the wings, of summer

But you, put your eyes, on mine

Now I, I’m going to fry

‘Cause I ran over the guy with a Hummer

But you, put your eyes, eyes on the divine

Now I, I want to fly, fly on the wings of summer

But you, you put your eyes, you put your eyes on mine

When you think that it’s all over

They’ll clip your wings and make you roll over

To perfect your great fall

No matter what smile for them all

For today we see never

Tomorrow’s menu reads forever

For today we see never

Tomorrow’s menu reads

Serj Tankian Cornucopia

I loved you in the sunshine

You chase the moon with a spear

Tardy afternoons in utopia

Kiss an ugly turtle and make it cry

Sever the head of cornucopia

We rape the Earth and don’t know why it strikes

Do you believe in stormy weather, stormy weather

Hurricanes play musical chairs with homes and chattel

The whirling dervish tornadoes reek all disaster

See-saw tsunamis, give and take, what’s the matter?

I loved you in the sunshine

You chase the moon with a spear

I pray that you will be all mine

You foam at the mouth and disappear

Sever the head of cornucopia

We fuck the Earth and don’t know why it cries

Do you believe in stormy weather, stormy weather

Hurricanes play musical chairs with homes and chattel

The whirling dervish tornadoes reek all disaster

See-saw tsunamis, give and take, what’s the matter?

I loved you in the sunshine

You chase the moon with a spear

I pray that you will be all mine

You foam at the mouth and disappear

We broke our pact

And away we go

To another place

Home

Where we call home

Why do we disfigure all the things that are so beautiful inside?

Where we compose the calamities for all to abide

Microcosm, macrocosm are the same

What a lame game

Don’t you think we’re extraordinary?

Believing and seeing

Realizing the imaginary

Don’t you, don’t you?

Yes, I think we’re extraordinary

Being and living

Yes, I think we ought to marry

We broke our pact

And away we go

To another place

I loved you in the sunshine

You chase the moon with a spear

I pray that you will be all mine

You foam at the mouth and disappear

Serj Tankian Revolver

Find me a revolver

Find me a bank robber

Anytime you need it

Call me and I’ll take over

Find me a bank robber

Find me a revolver

Anytime you need it

Call me and I’ll take over

The son of a tailor silently slain

Don’t inform the public

They might start to sober

Then all your schemes and perils

Will all then be over

You can not afford to

Let your arms erase

All your crimes poisons, float out again

Place yourself on me, Chief

Your wounded might save

The son of a tailor silently slain

You cant really see me

I can hide all over

When I spend these billions

Your life will soon be over

Shoot the helicopters

Full of body armor

All your crimes poisons, float out again

Place yourself on me, Chief

Your wounded might save

The son of a tailor silently slain, slain

Die, da, da, die, die

Die, da, da, die, die

Die, da, da, die, die

Die, da, die

Find me a revolver

Find me a bank robber

Anytime you need it

Call me and I’ll take over

Find me a bank robber

Find me a revolver

Anytime you need it

Call me and I’ll take over

Գարուն ա ձուն ա արել, (It is springtime and it has snowed,)

Իմ եարն ինձնից ա սառել, (My sweetheart has become cold,)

Ախ չորնա, վախ այ եար, չար մարդու լեզուն (Akh, I wish for my rival’s tongue to dry up)

Վայ լէ լէ, վայ լէ լէ, վայ լէ լէ, լէ լէ (Vaay le le, vaay le le, vaay le le le le.)
