They Say

Album: Scars on Broadway (2008)
  • I walked the line, the line I choose
    I see the people in front of me
    I climbed the wall, the wall of news
    I watched them show the tragedy

    If you were me, could you defend
    the given rights to all the men?
    Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
    They say it's all about to end...

    They say it's all about to end...
    They say, they say...

    There's a prison that's gone, but the fear lives on
    I watched you walking on the dotted line
    Maybe you don't see what's in front of me
    Maybe you won't stand the test of time
    For we live in sin, for we will win
    I watched the president kiss his family
    For we live in sin, for we will win
    I watched the president fuck society

    If you were me, could you defend
    the given rights to all the men?
    Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
    They say it's all about to end...

    They say it's all about to end...
    They say, they say...

    I fall in love with the old times
    I never mention my own mind
    Let's fuck the world with all it's trend
    Thank god, it's all about to end...

    They say it's all about to end...
    They say, they say...
    They say, they say...
    They say it's all about to end Writer/s: DARON MALAKIAN

  • Hannah from Statesville, NcIts kind of funny b/c if you read the phamphlet Daron played all of the instruments while John only played drums ! XD
  • Hannah from Statesville, NcDaron is very very outspoken and adorable
    his charisma will be good for SOB ( amazing name !!!!!!!!!!! ) how did they get their name anyway ( however they did it it awsome !)
  • Daron from Petaluma, CaDaron Malakian wants to make it clear that Scars on Broadway is no Side-Project and he takes it very seriously like he did with System of a Down
  • Sara from Athens , GaI don't know this for certain but this my take. We in the US live the way we do, because most of the the third world suffers. If there was no hunger or extreme poverty, there would be no cheap wage labor... no cheap labor no cheap goods. We live the way we do, because their "given rights" are denied. Thus could you defend in a materialistic society the rights of those men? No a chance. Of course once again Daron is calling us to go against the grain and think for ourselves instead of buying into trends. The references to the prez and the media are pointing out the fact that the media is not an information source but a business to make money. So while the world and our country suffers from everything from poverty to AIDS... we don't hear the issues, we only hear that he didn't go visit the troops or he was on isle 6 of the grocery store. Lyrically, it's what we're use to seeing out of SOAD, but the sound of this band is much different so I think we shall see good things from Scars on Broadway.
  • Ileen from Glendale, CaI think this song has to do with everything that corrupts the world is going to over turn on us and is "all about to end".
