  • Heimdallr from Lakeland, Sweden...dreams VERY rarely cause insanity...
  • Dbaggerson from Chester, WiI believe the lyrics "For today we will take the body parts and put them on the wall " may have something to do with the heads of dead Armenians being put on shelves. One of my favorites songs of SOAD.
  • Evan from Norman, Ok@Victoria
    I love this song, but I much prefer Lonely Day.
    And the description is perfect.
  • Dan from Toronto, OnI think this song is about Soviet Union government. Many people died of starvation. They had a different view of things (philosophy). "You, you went beyond and you lost it all
    Why did you go there"
    When the song uses the word "she" it can mean Mother Land. Can't forget that this band is Armenian, and i bet their parents have told them about what happened in the past.
  • Esq08 from Istanbul, Turkeyvocals is the best!
  • Victoria from Memphis, TnYes best song on Hypnotize:)
  • Katerina from Thessaloniki, GreeceI love this song. I mean it's the first song I've actually cried with. For me the 'She lost her mind...' part is about a lost love. The 'You, you went beyond...' is about people that think of things that most people don't and end up confused, depressed and totally lost. And finally, my favourite part 'Dreaming of screaming, someone kick me out of my mind I hate this thoughts I can't deny' is about all the the thoughts I make that are so true but make me really depressed and I wish so badly I wouldn't be making them.
  • Damien from Edmonton, CanadaThis is my All-time favorite SOAD song, It's #3 in my top 10 songs of all time, with "Eriatarka" by The Mars Volta being #2 and "Paranoid Android" by Radiohead being #1. But this song... it's just so amazing! I don't even know how they made it this amazing! The guitar riffs are awesome, the lyrics are meaningful, and the "Dreaming of Screaming" part gives me chills. Serj's voice is amazing on this.
  • Evita from Dundalk, IrelandI dnt no how dey do it! Their songs are unbelievable, i love System of a down!!!!
  • Graeme from Carluke, ScotlandI think its about nightmares driving you insane, waking up past mistakes. That's what the chorus is about.
  • Blake from Hamilton, OhThis song really sucks as far as "Catchyness goes." I really don't like it, but it's talking about how dreams can be really bad indeed.
  • Aaron from Plymouth, MnThis is by far my favorite song on Hypnotize.
  • Matt from Fort Myers, FlBest song on Hypnotize.
  • Petrified Monkey from South Park, CoYou! You went beond!! And you lost it all!! Why did you go there?!!!! From Beond!!! You saw it all!!! Why did you go there!!?!!
  • Yuya from Kyoto, JapanI totally love this song, one of the best songs on Hypnotize.
