Proceeds from the songs were to help Armenia Fund and for humanitarian needs of displaced families from the war.
As for a possible new album, Dolmayan told Rolling Stone , "If it was up to me, we'd have a new album every three years. But things aren't up to me. I'm at the mercy of my team, and although I fought for it for many years with band members, I've accepted that it is what it is. We do have five albums and [now] two songs. We've accomplished a lot in our careers. If it ends at that, so be it. However, as the conflict came to fruition, the band had decided to come together and release the songs under System of a Down instead.
There's a huge humanitarian catastrophe. We're still focused on raising funds, raising awareness about this. Time will tell whether this leads to something else or not. System of a Down's lyrics are often oblique  or dadaist   and have discussed topics such as drug abuse,  politics   and suicide. Why do they always send the poor? Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic stated "Like many late-'90s metal bands System of a Down struck a balance between '80s underground thrash metal and metallic early-'90s alternative rockers like Jane's Addiction ".
To me, System of a Down isn't a progressive band. We definitely pay attention to the music to make sure that it's not something someone's heard before. The band has used a wide range of instruments, such as electric mandolins , baritone electric guitars , acoustic guitars , ouds , sitars , and twelve string guitars.
It has enough of the clarity and the crisp sound—most of our riffy stuff is done on the top two strings, anyway—but it's also thicker and ballsier. I'm not necessarily a fan of any one band. I consider us System of a Down.
I don't care. Comparisons and labels have no effect on this band. Fact is fact: We are who we are and they are who they are. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Armenian-American metal band.

I'm sorry, but you could also commit suicide by drug overdose And the tapeworm would be the addiction. If you note how some people smoke, you can tell they have an addiction.
Usually people's addiction's control them. There are very few people who can control an addiction, thus the lines "My tapeworm tells me what to do You know what? Fuck the whole drug and Euthanasia thing, its just talking about addiction as a whole, can anyone with "a tapeworm" can "pull it out of their ass Flag joerct on April 29, KosmicStorm I'd argue more so that the line about stomach pains is a play on the tape worm metaphor used than what you are suggesting.
But each to their own : Flag sokorny on April 29, KosmicStorm Wouldn't "tomb of an old man" mean where you're headed? Flag turtlesnip on August 01, General Comment In my view, drugs are shown as tapeworms in this song - when Serj sings "My tapeworm tells me what to do", hes singing about how drugs control lives.
Flag joerct on April 30, General Comment thats all well and good, all this actually makes alot of sense with drugs and stuff, it goes perfect wit the lyrics, unfortunatly u are all wrong except for someone up there. Im Iranian. Im Iranian I can see where you are coming from Unless the song is explicit in it's message the lyrics are deliberately made ambiguous to ensure different people can take different messages from it.
Flagged sokorny on April 29, General Comment i reckon this song is about drug addiction, but using the metaphor of a tapeworm. No Replies Log in to reply. Your browser does not support the video tag. Win more cases with less work.
