    General Commenti think its about how we as consumers only listen to what advertisers tell us to do. they say pizza we say YAY!!! or something like that. we are a race of creatures that is so proud of our advanced intelligence but we cant even think for ourselves. i hate it, whenever i talk about how stupid humans are i always seem like im trying to sound smart, i wish it would work.

    General CommentI think that it means we buy too much because of advertising causing us to think we need things.

    My InterpretationI dont know if anyone already said this, but from the comments Ive read so far people just seem to be arguing about SOAD =/. But anyway, the message is relatively simple, but extremely effective, starting the song off like a catchy phrase commercial about pizza, which almost resembles that of the Big Mac slogan "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." The way Serj rants "every minute every second Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy!" almost seems as if he is the viewer of the commercial, as if he is hysterically brain washed. The message is most apparent when the interlude is very solemn with Serj calmly singing "Advertising's got you on the run..." seeming as if its someone a bit more sane speaking, but then back to the "need therapy, therapy, advertising causes..." every other line. After the interlude the song simply plays through the verse and the chorus again, and then its over. In my own personal opinion, it is ignorant for people to say SOAD sings about nothing, this has a big message in it, with more emphasis on the way its sung, more so than the words. It gives off the feeling as if Serj is actually insane. Great song, Great band, get back together lol. Not to say that Serj and Daron are bad separately, but together, I think you get alot more genius out of them. ^_^
