A.D.D. is an acronym for American Dream Denial....
We fought your wars with all our hearts
You sent us back in body parts
You took our wills with the truth you stole
We offer prayers for your long lost soul

Your remainder is an unjustifiable
Egotistical power struggle
At the expense of the American dream
Of the American dream, of the American

We don't give a damn about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a damn about your world
Right now, right now

We don't give a fuck about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a fuck about your world
Right now, right now, right now, right now

There is no flag that is large enough
To hide the shame of a man in cuffs
You switched the signs then you closed their blinds
You changed their channels and you changed their minds

Your remainder is an unjustifiable
Egotistical power struggle
At the expense of the American dream
Of the American dream, of the American

We don't give a damn about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a damn about your world
Right now, right now

We don't give a fuck about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a fuck about your world
Right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right now

No flag large enough
Shame on the man in cuffs
Close the blinds

Your remainder is an unjustifiable
Egotistical power struggle
At the expense of the American dream
Of the American dream, of the American

We don't give a damn about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a damn about your world
Right now, right now

We don't give a fuck about your world
With all your global profits and all you're to oppose
We don't give a fuck about your world
Right now, right now, right now, right now
Right now, right now, right now, right na-na-na-now

    General Comment(off topic/not about this songs meaning)

    The band may be ticked, but I don't think "losing money" is the reason. The band has stated that: "These tracks are unfinished and don't reflect the group's high standards of recorded sound. We are disappointed that our fans are listening to anything less than the best possible recordings from System of a Down."

    Knave, I think we're all getting tired of you saying the same thing over and over again. I truely doubt, based on interviews with the band, and their lyrics, that they are in it for the money.

    I did listen to these songs when they first came out, before the band released the statement above. When I heard it (the statement above) I was upset that I did listen to them, but the band has made their decision about where they are going from here and there is nothing we can do now. There is no need to bring it up everytime a song from the leaked album is posted. You seem to think that because you "know someone who knows someone..." or whatever the #&*% it was, that YOUR reasons for listening to these songs are justified?

    "...the bottom line is money
    nobody gives a fuck..."

    General CommentCan someone post the lyrics for KITT..because I d/led two songs, and I'm not sure which one is actually it!! Because the first one isn't even the whole song, and the other one is talking about sidekicks or something.

    General Commentsorry about the link not working... it still works for me. id post the lyrics for kitt but that song is so hard to understand, its the song where he chants in the chorus and says... "WHY?!????! as we light up the sky" hope that helps a bit. i wish the songs were small enough that i could email them to you cuz i got no life and a lot of spare time and i could do it that way. if you know another way i could get the songs to you id do it just um, email me at oxygen_wasting_poop_loser@hotmail.com if you know how i could do it. i hated it when i heard about the songs and people were being total dicks and wouldnt tell me how to get them and since theyre not releasing them anyway i wanna get them to as many people as i can. im gonna put them in kazaa too so maybe that might work.

    General Commentthey weren't going to release these songs inparticular, becuase they aren't finished, they are not mixed and mastered proprly as of yet, these were scheduled to be released over time, on singles and soundtracks. Now they have nothing.
    the fact that these songs got leaked is both good and bad,
    bad in the sense that now system has no songs to release, and the fans no longer have anything to look foreward to for quite a long time.
    good in the sense that this might inspire them to write more stuff, eh? hehe.

    either way, it's tragic that these got out, even though all of us enjoy them greatly, I won't lie, i love the songs.

    General Commenty'know if they still did release these on a new cd or soundracks, id buy it anyway, but really, they should have released Toxicity as a double disc with ALL of the songs on it, thats my opinion anyway, they were gonna get out sooner or later.
