Sad Statue  System of a Down

____________________
/ System of a Down / In short I think this song is against human suffering in
/ Sad Statue / general. It's about how we forget to simply love and
/ Mezmerize / forgive our enemies; instead we're dropping bombs on them
/___________________/ to only justify conflicts that could have been forgotten.

Conquest to the lover
And your love to the fire
Permanence unfolding in the absolute
Forgiveness is the ultimate sacrifice
Eloquence belongs to the conqueror
The pictures of time and space are rearranged
In this little piece of typical tragedy
Justified candy
Brandy for the nerves
Eloquence belongs to the conqueror
You and me
We'll all go down in history
With a sad statue of liberty
And a generation that didn't agree
I forgot to
I forgot to let you know that
Justified candy
Brandy for the nerves
Eloquence belongs to the conqueror
What is in us that turns a deaf ear to the cries of human suffering?
Suffering
Suffering now
Belonging
Belonging to
