"Marmalade" as written by Serj Tankian, Daron V Malakian, Shavo Odajian and John Dolmayan....
Stretching, filing,
Against her skin,
Blessed are those,
Who are not kin,
In sin we breathe,
In sex we tie,
Duct tape her legs,
To the red sky,
Foolsome flesh allowances,
The pansies raided the pantry of,
Gabardine dreams, promiscuous,
Delight, deny not the flavor,
Custard dreams,
Abusing, musing,
Marmalade flesh
Naked spread am I,

Actors of the tragic fanthom,
Extend your legs to great saturn,
Brown table tops scream for cover,
At the sight of your new lover,
If today I die,
And can't deny,
The poison chosen,
For tonight.
Borrowed dreams,
Hollowed reveries,
Metal pillows,
Pewter yellows,
Furry roadkill,
House on the hill,
Pouring gravy,
On her thighs still,
If today I die,
And can't deny,
The poison chosen,
For tonight.

Borrowed dreams,
Hollowed reveries,
Metal pillows,
Pewter yellows,
Furry roadkill,
House on the hill,
Pouring gravy,
On her thighs still,

If today I die,
And can't deny,
The poison chosen,
For tonight.

    Song MeaningScratching, filing, Against her skin, Blessed are those, Who are not kin,
    (sex, blessed are those who do not induldge)

    In sin we breathe, In sex we tie, Duct tape her legs, To the red sky,
    (more sex, he knows he is sinning)

    Foolsome flesh allowances, The pansies raided the pantry of, Gabardine dreams, promiscuous,
    Delight, deny not the flavor,
    (he knows he should not indulge in sex, gabardine is a fabric, he dreams of sex, and cannot deny his temptations)

    Custard dreams, Abusing, musing, Marmalade flesh, Naked spread am I, Am I
    (custard & marmalade are food/sweetness references. questioning his actions)

    Actors of the tragic fanthom, Extend your legs for Great Saturn Brown table tops scream for cover,
    At the sight of your new lover
    (actors, this is unreal. YOUR NEW LOVER is the most important part. He is cheating.)

    If today I die, And can't deny, The poison, Chosen for tonight Tonight,
    (inability to deny the sin he knows he is commiting)

    Borrowed keys, Hollowed reveries, Metal pillows, Pewter yellows, Furry roadkill
    House on the hill, Pouring gravy, On her thighs still
    (borrowed keys support the cheating reference, reveries are daydreams, he feels empty. house on the hill also supports him cheating)

    If today I die, And can't deny, The poison, Chosen for tonight, Tonight
    (again, his inability to deny indulging in his poison, sex)

    General CommentI think I got it!
    I think this song is about lust and how some of our lives revolve around sex. Read the verses carfully and i think you might agree...but this song is tough one but i think i may be on track...someone help me out :S

    General Commentghettocild might be right but what does the part about dying have to do with it?
    IF TODAY I DIE,
    AND CAN'T DENY,
    THE POISON CHOSEN,
    FOR TONIGHT.

    General Comment"A DAY CAN'T BE TOTAL WASTE IF,
    I'M TOTALLY WASTED ALL DAY,
    PEOPLE HANG ON TO THE PICTURES,
    PE0PLE HANG ON TO THE BLANK WALLS,"

    I don't think this is part of the song! I have listened to it mant times just to hear the above part... and it is not there! Also isn't it Marmalade? With an "A" not an "E"? Beides that, everyting is correct...

    FOR TONIGHT.

    this could mean that dying right after sex wouldnt be such a bad thing.
