System Of A Down - Toxicity

SYSTEM OF A DOWN


Toxicity Lyrics

Conversion, software version seven-point-oh
Looking at life through the eyes of a tire hub
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city

You, what, do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder?
Now, somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

More wood for their fires, loud neighbors
Flashlight reveries caught in the headlights of a truck
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city

Now, what, do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder?
Now, somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

You, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder?
Now, somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

When I became the sun
I shone life into the man's hearts
When I became the sun
I shone life into the man's hearts

I think this song Is about the America in general. Hollywood in particular, being the hub of the world, from which we export our sickness. Disorder is our biggest export. Disguised as consumerism. We're somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep.

I think the song is refering to this consumerist, cancerous and conformist society. 'Eating seeds as a pastime activity'- simpily a metaphor for carelessly consuming the foundations of life.

Thanks, SOAD fan :)... Usually I woundn't notice such a thing on a lyrics page, but it doesn't come as a suprise that they were wrong, though... It happens quite often, like...Well, every song...Maybe

'eating seeds as a pastime activity' could refer to the chewing of morning glory seeds or other similar seeds which contain LSA, which is very similar to LSD. could explain 'I became sun' ending.

It strikes me as social and moral entropy. Degradation over time. However, what does eatin seeds as a pastime mean? consumerism out of boredom? Fits current society.

I always thought it was ...looking at life through the eyes of a tire hub.. not tired hub. Maybe I've been wrong all this time.

Why does everyone get the lyrics to this song wrong?? It's not 'Now', it's 'New, what do you own the world'. So many other little mistakes too...look on the SOAD website. JEEEEBUS :S
