System Of A Down – Chop Suey! lyrics

Wake up (Wake up)
Grab a brush and put a little makeup
Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
(Hide the scars to fade away the shake)
Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
Here you go create another fable


(You wanted to)
Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
(You wanted to)
Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
(You wanted to)
Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
(You wanted to)

I don't think you trust, in, my,
Self-righteous suicide,
I, cry, when angels deserve to die
!

Wake up (wake up)
Grab a brush and put a little makeup
Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
Here you go create another fable

(You wanted to)
Grab a brush and put on a little makeup
(You wanted to)
Hide the scars to fade away the shake up
(You wanted to)
Why'd you leave the keys up on the table?
(You wanted to)

I don't think you trust, in, my
Self-righteous suicide,
I cry, when angels deserve to die
In my self-righteous suicide,
I cry, when angels deserve to die

Father (father)
Father (father)
Father (father)
Father (father)
Father Into your hands I commit my spirit
Father Into your hands, why have you forsaken me?
In your eyes, forsaken me
In your thoughts, forsaken me
In your heart, forsaken me

Oh, trust in my, self-righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die
In my self-righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die

    This song is about the armenian holocaust. Serj tankian is Armenian and the lyrics "self righteous suicide" refer to the fact that the armenians never fought back evenwhen they were being killed by muslim turks. Lyrics "father into your hands I commit my spirit" and "why have u forsaken me", were among the last words of christ. 1: 35 -1: 40, you could c the armenian flag in the background. Serj said the song is just a reflection of what happened to his people. Btw, one of the best songs ever written!

    Omg your so stupid hes saying "trust in my self-righteous suicide" because he's telling people that even though he's going to die on the cross that they should still beleive in him. And how do you knoe they're making fun of him? In all fairness none of us know if they mean it or not but seriously? Also "father why have you forsaken me" and "i commend my spirit is two of the seven things jesus said as he was dying on the cross. Now like I said before none of us really know what they mean by the song but judging by their other songs they're not satin worshipers at all.

    Heres what the song means straight out of Daron Malakian's mouth.
    In an interview, Daron Malakian explained, "the song is about how we are regarded differently depending on how we pass. Like, if I were now to die from a drug abuse, they might say I deserved it because I abused dangerous drugs. Hence the line, "I cry when angels deserve to die. " The lyrics "Why have you forsaken me? " and "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit"are references to Jesus' death on the cross, as they were two of the seven things Jesus said whilst dying.

    I think it's about a woman who is suffering from an abuse or something (Hide the scars to fade away the shake up)
    she turns to god for help but her suffering never ends (Father Into your hands, why have you forsaken me?)
    so she decides to commit suicide (trust in my, self-righteous suicide)
    that's why serj says (I cry, when angels deserve to die) because the woman was innocent but no one helped her to get out of her misery so she kills herself.

    I think this song is about someone who is being treated badly such as a women being abused. (Grab a brush and put a little makeup,
    Hide the scars to fade away the shake up) I think this a women being abused. (Father Into your hands I commend my spirit
    Father Into your hands, why have you forsaken me?) I think this means the women is Praying trying to figure out why she is being abused, and why god is not stopping it.
