I walked the line, the line I choose
I see the people in front of me
I climbed the wall, the wall of news
I watched them show the tragedy

If you were me, could you defend
The given rights to all the men?
Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
They say it's all about to end...

They say it's all about to end...
They say, they say...

There's a prison that's gone, but the fear lives on
I watched you walking on the dotted line
Maybe you don't see what's in front of me
Maybe you won't stand the test of time
For we live in sin, for we will win
I watched the president kiss his family
For we live in sin, for we will win
I watched the president fuck society

If you were me, could you defend
The given rights to all the men?
Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
They say it's all about to end...

They say it's all about to end...
They say, they say...

I fall in love with the old times
I never mention my own mind
Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
Thank god, it's all about to end...

They say it's all about to end...
They say, they say...
They say, they say...
They say it's all about to end

    He's talking about the media alot though as well, which pushes that panic button, the idea that we are at the edge constantly, that the world is going to end, and it acts to both manufacture consent for the worst depravity that our government inflicts on other nations, as well as the feeling of hopeless isolation.
    "I climb the wall, the wall of news
    I watched them show the tragedy"

    no where else in the world other than america does the "end of the world" theme play as powerfully, inciting the public into an orgy of violence and causing us to advocate the funding of the largest defense budget on the planet (greater than every other country combined), while neglecting social programs, basic health care, hunger, and poverty.

    Read the article "Dances with Devils" about the role of eschatology in american politics and rhetoric, it is very enlightening

    I disagree...
    based on the following lines:
    "I watched the president fuck society"
    "I fall in love with the old times"
    "Thank god, it's all about to end..."
    and on the general tendency of system of a down and scars on broadway to present critiques about the world we live in, i believe this song presents an idea more like "humanity is a failure, fortunately, it's all about to end"

    I love system of a down so obviously I would like this song. Americal though is the only country where it all most encourages violence, not becasue of war becasue compared to other countries we are not in constant tourmoil but we show all the shootings on tv making shooters and killers almost celebrities. How Dumb Can we Be
