System Of A Down – Aerials lyrics

Life is a waterfall
We're one in the river
And one again after the fall

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves
But we find it all...

Cause we are the ones that want to play
Always want to go
But you never want to stay

And we are the ones that want to choose
Always want to play
But you never want to lose

Aerials, in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life

Life is a waterfall
We drink from the river
Then we turn around and put up our walls

Swimming through the void
We hear the word
We lose ourselves
But we find it all...

Cause we are the ones that want to play
Always want to go
But you never want to stay

And we are the ones that want to choose
Always want to play
But you never want to lose

Aerials, in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life
Aerials, so up high
When you free your eyes eternal prize

Aerials, in the sky
When you lose small mind
You free your life
Aerials, so up high
When you free your eyes eternal prize

    We, as a human race, wants to enjoy life, more than learning about it. I believe that the boy in the video is an alien being, who discovers that humans do not want to advance their knowledge, but to entertain(rap video scene), distract with trivial facts(paparazzi scene), induce ourselves in vanity(photo-shoot) and lust(two women with boy/alien), pursuit of wealth(raining money scene) by experience these things himself and realizes that he has become self-absorbed, finds the giant tent, and dies in the center, but as a symbolic death of what he used to be, himself, his true nature, just the same as have long ago.

    I think that this song is about a hadicaped boy and all the fame, money, and everything what is shown there is only what he's dreamt about and in the end he falls down on the floor and I think it represents that he realizes that he could never reach all his dreams, mainly because of his handicap. In my opinion this song is for people who don't think of any other things than money and social success and don't realize that there are many people who can only dream about things like that.
