   / System of a Down  /  In short I think this song is against human suffering in

 / Mezmerize         /  forgive our enemies; instead we're dropping bombs on them
/___________________/  to only justify conflicts that could have been forgotten.

  Conquest to the lover
  And your love to the fire
  Permanence unfolding in the absolute
  Forgiveness is the ultimate sacrifice
  Eloquence belongs to the conqueror

  The pictures of time and space are rearranged
  In this little piece of typical tragedy
  Justified candy
  Brandy for the nerves
  Eloquence belongs to the conqueror

  You and me
  We'll all go down in history
  With a sad statue of liberty
  And a generation that didn't agree

  I forgot to
  I forgot to let you know that
  Justified candy
  Brandy for the nerves
  Eloquence belongs to the conqueror
 
  What is in us that turns a deaf ear to the cries of human suffering?
  Suffering
  Suffering now

  Belonging
  Belonging to
