Song Review: System of a Down: Know






yup.. its soad again.. im sorry i cant really post often.. kinda busy nowadays.. k den.. lets begin

LYRICS
Cursed Earth, Cursed Earth, Cursed Earth, Cursed Earth.

I will never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart all because we all live in the valley of the walls when we speak we can peak from the windows of their mouths to see the land the women chant as they fly up to the sun.

You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why,
Know.

Books all say different things while people flap their yellow wings trying 
to soar by being a whore of life and almost everything the sheep that ran 
off from the herd may be dead but now's a bird able to fly able to die able 
to break your cursed earth


You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why,
Know.

On the other side, on the other side, the other side,
Do you ever try to fly, Do you ever try to fly?
Have you ever wanted to die, you ever want to die?

Don't ever try to fly, don't ever try to fly,
Don't ever try to fly, unless you leave your body on the other side,
Never try to die, you ever try to die.

Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why, Know. 


MEANING


i will never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart 
this means that he wont believe what organized religions tell him, in their fancy way of making themselves look innocent and good, hence the words used like heart. he says this since they have no real proof or really know and are just in it for their own gain


all because we all live in the valley of the walls
this means we live in a world where we dont know whats gonna happen next, hence the valley of the walls. the walls symbolize that we cant see was on the other side, like when we die. no one can see and know the truth.

when they speak we can peek, through the windows of her mouth see the land the women chant as they fly up to the sun
this means when organized religions like christianity or islam tell u their belief about heaven and all that, when they speak and seeing them fly up to the sun, saying they are explaining to u that u will die and go to heaven if u follow us.
books all say different thing while people flap their yellow wings
is like what free thinker say - it means different books say different things about afterlife, no one knows. people flapping their yellow wings, means all people jumping to conclusions and believing what they read, hence YELLOW WINGS, in other words fake wings. they are living their lives thinking that the religions are right, so they are already flapping their wings to get ready to go when they really dont know.
the rest basically means we try to soar, by believing but then in reality we go out and take advantage of things and the earth, being a whore of life, thinking that believing is enough to get into heaven and we can be a whore in life. the sheep that run stuff mite support the idea of reincarnation stating that that could be a possibility as well, thats why he says MAYBE dead,,

then the whole u ever wanted to die stuff, thats basically saying have u ever really wanted to know what happens and think hard about, but then says, dont ever try to fly unless u leave your body... saying that no matter how hard u think u wont know until u actually die (leaving your body on the other side), and again starts with the, you'll never think u know, stating that all in all, u will never know until u die.


kay guys.. i kinda rushed through.. srry again..
