  • Such a lonely day
    And it's mine
    The most loneliest day of my life

    Such a lonely day
    Should be banned
    It's day that I can't stand

    The most loneliest day of my life
    The most loneliest day of my life

    Such a lonely day
    Shouldn't exist
    It's day that Ill never miss
    Such a lonely day
    And it's mine
    The most loneliest day of my life

    And if you go, I wanna go with you
    And if you die, I wanna die with you

    Take your hand and walk away

    The most loneliest day of my life
    The most loneliest day of my life
    The most loneliest day of my life (life)

    Such a lonely day
    And it's mine
    Is day that I'm glad I survived Writer/s: DARON MALAKIAN, SERJ TANKIAN

  • Ebud from Oregoni think this song is a birthday song when someone has been abandoned by their birth mother
  • Anonymoushi can anyone tell me what is the song's beat called?
  • Michelle from UsaWELL for me personally which it's really all about...how you relate to it...I makes me feel like it's about depression and how everyday really feels like the more loneliest day of your life over and over again when dealing with depression but then at the end of the day you're still glad you survived. But, the truth lies with this link so click it. :) https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/articles/features/the_story_behind_lonely_day_by_system_of_a_down-75235
  • Foster from Sydney, AustraliaTotally cool song when you are feeling down...
    Don't know about the "House of the Rising Sun" comments from previous posters. Check the relative time signatures (music stuff)...
    Regardless, it's not important. The song hits and lifts you (eventually) at the same time. As with all SOAD
  • Zack from Noblesville, InThis song is perfect for those of us who feel like we don't belong no where and have very few good days where we have people around that care.
  • Esperanza from Glendale, AzYou can really hear the house of the rising sun thats awesome
  • Tyler from Salem, OrThis song is about Daron Malkian's cousin who died in a fire and his struggle with it.
  • Jorrik from North Hollywood, Armeniaapparently Daron's brother died in a fire, and that's why in the video there is fire everywhere. and i think Daron was there, therefore he's glad he survived.
  • Ben from West Bend, Afghanistani definatly agree with hunter
  • Megan from Kansas, Ksin ks for me its awesome!
  • Hunter from South West, MiCome on people this song is about the armenian genocide (holocaust)
  • Corey from Richmond, VaGreat song love the solo on the guitar. Song says a lot at "And if you go I want to go with you, and if you die I want to die with you."
  • Megan from Seminary, Msi like this song because it shows how everyone has "those" days when everything goes wrong but you know it could be worse, you could be dead
  • Joshua from Parsons, KsThey lost to Mother that is BS
  • Taylor from Las Vegas, NeI totally thought that the guitar was from House of the Rising Sun.
  • Aki from Sunrise, FlAnybody who listens to this and cannot see Daron as being beautiful in at least one way needs help.
  • Jacob from Somewhere, United StatesI think the line, "It's a day I'm glad I survived" is suppose to mean that Daron is happy to be alive so he don't have to deal with of people since he is alone.
