Serj Tankian – Saving Us lyrics
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...)

    I see this as we have all our problems, whoever we are. We might all see a homeless man and tend to avoid him because he's smelly or something, but the fact that he doesn't have a home doesn't make him unhappier. The problems one has, the other doesn't. Some problems show more than others and if we all had our problems written on our ofreheads, there would be no juging of others, for they could do so themselves. Second, one pointed out saying bottled water isn't a problem! Think that some people have no water to drink on this planet, and that it is vital for all of us. By making it a source if profit, you accept the fact that some will die from not having it, and others will be wasting it. In my opinion, the worst crime humanity can commit, is the market! To prevent the poor from not having water, you must prevent the rich from wasting it. As long as people stay greedy and careless, nothing will change, it will only get worse.

    "i don't like explaining what i think it means, because it's more valid what you think it means. I feel like art and music come from the universe; they don't come from the individual, they come from from collective consciousness. When we relay them we're still at best presenters. " ~ serj.
    This song can mean alot of things. Many comments here mention that it could be about marriage, and it could. It's one of the beauties of his work in both his solo albums and in system of a down; everyone can see there own meaning in it. He never tells you what he means you have to see your own meaning in it.
    You could get alot more things than the marriage example out of this, but that's for each person to see, I am not you so I cannot know what this song means to you. However all of serj's songs must mean something specific to him, right?
    Like many of his works, I believe this has a little something to do with the armenian genocide some hundred years ago that many still deny was actually genocide. It's an issue close to serj's heart. Why deny what was obviously a genocide, we can't make civilization better without acknowledging the mistakes of the past. Denying it can tear people apart, just like it does when some people deny the holocaust, and everyone get up-in-arms about that: this is the exact same thing. It also can be talking about any other real problem that gets pushed to the side lines when we're worrying about things that don't matter.
    In the second stanza he could be saying that when someone steps up and talks about what really matters he loves them because they're doing the right thing. When we realize what really matter we can unite and help eachother fix the problems.
    Finally when you deny the issues you're tearing and breaking us, if you acknowledge them youre saving us.
    The video supports these claims, everyone has signs of what they think is important, but they arent important in comparison to the homeless man right here in their neighborhood. More so they pail in comparison to genocide.

    This song means alot to me right now. My mother is being unfaithful to my father, and its killing us. My dad an sister and I. And then she promises and she won't leave, "saving us". And jus when we think the fights over she goes back out an gets the fix of her drug. Aka, cheating. I hate it, I'm going to make her listen to this song. Get s*t thru her head.
