All the following tabs are transcribed by me, so you want 102% accuracy, you should
buy the official tab!
I transcribed this lovely album simply because I loved the music and Daron's lovely
guitar work here.
I know the band insists on leaving the interpretation of the lyrics to each
individual, but I'll still throw in my own interpretation of each song. Daron and
Serj, who write the lyrics, have a lot on their minds, even if they'll admit it or
not, and I think these lyrics deserve to be discussed. So check out the great site
www.songmeanings.net.
                                                                  - 14th /March /09

   / System of a Down  /  I think this song is about this guy being dumped by the
  / Revenga           /  love of his life and how he gets so furious that he gets
 / Mezmerize         /  murderous thoughts about her. It could also be interpret
/___________________/  with a perverse twist. ‘Bleeding in a sink’ and ‘the taking
                      is in the making baby’ could hint at the poor guy made his
now former girlfriend in his rage and eager for revenge. I think he would do it to
leave his signs at her, like showing her that he had actually meant something in
her life.

   / System of a Down  /  I think this song is about the U.S. being the dominating

                      consist of even a slight threat. For instance when they threatened
Iran if they did not terminate their construction of the nuclear power plant, as it
would probably be used for producing nuclear bombs, which, as far as I remember,
the U.S. ironically has enough of to destroy every inch of the planet.

Gtr II (C G C F A D) - Electric, Distorted
Gtr III (C G C F A D) - Electric, Distorted
Gtr IV (C G C F A D) - Electric, Clean

*Before even starting on the intro, you really need to catch the 9/16 feeling - and of
course build up your finger endurance, as it is an extremely challenging song to play.
Anyways, to get that feeling, imagine the 12/16 (6/8 or 3/4) feeling, and then forget
about the last three 16th parts. I think the 5/8 feeling is actually easier to catch!
After doing this tab, I've really realized that SOAD have really become clever musicians!

    ________________________
   / System of a Down      /  This song is about a weird experience Daron, a big
  / Old School Hollywood  /  baseball fan, once had as he was playing the 45th
 / Mezmerize             /  Annual Hollywood Stars Baseball Game at Dodgers Stadium.
/_______________________/  As it was only a show off match, Daron didn't take it
                          rather serious, though the others did. It's about the
feeling of misplacement he had. I think it's a funny story.

    _____________________
   / System of a Down   /  I think this song is about Daron’s disgust for fame that
  / Lost In Hollywood  /  status and an achievement. It’s about how people are
 / Mezmerize          /  consumed and corrupted by the ideal of becoming famous.
/____________________/  The Hackensack-reference is an old saying, where Hackensack
                       means a dull town where there’s no point in being in. This
                      is of course pure sarcasm!

I'll wait here
You're crazy
Those vicious streets are filled with strays
You should have never gone to Hollywood

They find you
Two-time you
Say you're the best they've ever seen
You should have never trusted Hollywood

I wrote you
And told you
You were the biggest fish out here
You should have never gone to Hollywood

They take you
And make you
They look at you in disgusting ways
You should have never trusted Hollywood

I was standing on the wall
Feeling ten feet tall
All you maggots smoking fags on Santa Monica Boulevard
This is my front page
This is my new age
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Sunset Boulevard
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care

Phony people come to pray
Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray
The lines in the letter said "We have gone to Hackensack"
Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray

All you maggots smoking fags on Santa Monica Boulevard
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Sunset Boulevard
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Hollywood Boulevard
You should have never trusted Hollywood
You should have never gone to Hollywood
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care
You should have never trusted Hollywood
