"Soil" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odajian and John Dolmayan....
The phoenix he helped create,
Out of control boy without a dad,
Shot the gun that startled my life,
While I drove him with a forty-five.

Friends for years images in red,
Blew off his own mother-fuckin head,
Confidence, death, insecurity,
Men fall unrealized,
Unrealized, unrealized.

Making a decision of death,
While everyone around you pled,
Now you fly in peace,
I hope, my friend,
A man can't avoid what he's meant to do,
When he's meant to do it,
Even if he doesn't really want to,
My memories are of fun and friendship,
Of weakness within the strength of youth,
For reasons undefined, reasons undefined,
Reasons undefined, reasons undefined.

Friends for years images in red,
Blew off his own mother-fuckin head,
Confidence, death, insecurity,
Men fall unrealized,

Don't you realize,
Evil, lives in the m-fucking skin,
Don't you realize,
Evil, lives in the m-fucking skin,

Unrealized, unrealized.

Don't you, realize, evil,
Lives in the mother-fucking skin,
Don't you, realize , that evil,
Lives in the mother-fucking.

    General CommentNo really a meaning, but THINK ABOUT IT!

    Daron from System Of A Down said this on a live show before playing Soil: "We only have 15 more minutes on this motherfucker (show). It's going to take a little while (problems on stage), but we wont go away, they are going to kick us out, they are going to kick us all out but we wont go away. Even if they try to kick you out and put you in jail for anything you do, dont stop doing it, dont go away, dont go away because we cant be without you, System Of A Down aint shit without you. People think we sing about politics, People think we sing about sex, People think we sing about drugs. We sing about our life, were fucking playing, thats what were fucking doing. I am so pissed off today and you dont even know it. This song is about death... and friends that die... and life that dies... and it goes like this [starts playing soil]".

    Its funny you know, that actually is the compleate meaning of the song but he just said it in a different way, now i am tierd as hell to write the meaning, maby some other day i will, but for now, think about that.
