Serj Tankian – Cornucopia lyrics

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
Seaside 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 reep all disaster
Seaside 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

    I think this is a conversation between the earth and man. The earth is the first verse/chorus, and we chased away the moon or darkness with artificial light after it gave us the sun. And the last part about us being so extraordinary is how we all currently see ourselves compared to our surroundings, we control everything. It is also saying how we bring on all the bad things that happen, the stormy weather is all a knock on of our effect on the earth. So basically about how we throw everything we are given back in natures face and see ourselves as better than it.
