"Darts" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odajian and John Dolmayan....
May I please remain in this space,
For darts screech by my desires,
May I please remain in this space,
For darts screech by my desires,

Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Art thou not human man
Not human man art thou

Life threatening lifestyles,
A hitman, a nun, lovers,
Life threatening lifestyles,
A hitman, a nun, lovers,

Arise as did the gods ninti,
Arise as did the gods ninti,
Arise as did the gods ninti, and ishkur

Clock men for they will fail,
Fear not the gods that come from the sky,
Long not for the one who've lost their way,
Long not for the one who've lost their way

Arise as did the gods ninti,
Arise as did the gods ninti,
Arise as did the gods ninti, and ishkur, ishkur mother-fucker!
Can you help me I don't know

    General CommentI don't agree with FreeThinker863. Why should SOAD sing a song against homosexuality? They are no fascists or something like that. Homosexuality is no crime, we live in the 21 century!

    I think this is a song about mankind itself. Mankind isn't human anymore. The people do too many crazy things. They are more artificial than natural. ("art thou not human man) Our whole life became paradox more and more. The society changed. This is shown in the phrase "A Hitman, a nun, lovers?!". So how can a Hitman and a nun get together? Become lovers? A Hitman kills, a nun believes in god and love.
    But a time will come where the gods take the people to where they come from. To there roots. ("Fear not the gods that come from the sky.")
    And after that the mankind will arise "as did the gods Ninti and Iskur". Unfortunately I dunno who these gods are, maybe some of u guys could help me.

    General CommentThe gods Ninti and Ishkur are as follows:

    Ninti
    There is a region called Dilmun in the land of Sumer. This is a pure, clean, shining land where gods live. Sickness and death is unknown there. But they had no water so Enki called upon the Sun God to bring water to the surface and fill the region with it. Son God did as requested. The whole region became a garden of gods with gardens and fields everywhere. Here the Earth Goddess Ninhursag planted eight trees. They grew and Enki tasted the fruits of each of them. Eath Goddess was furious, she cursed Enki and disappeared. Enki became very ill. Other gods found Ninhursag and pleaded with her to treat Enki. Enki's eight organs needed treatment one for each of the trees. So Ninhursag created eight entities one for each organ. Five of these entities were female and the rest males. One of the eight organs were the rib and the goddess created to treat this rib was named Nin-ti ( Nin: lady, ti: rib) "the lady of the rib". Another meaning of "ti" was "life", mmaking Nin-ti "the lady of life". This story appears in the Old Testament and in Qoran. And in its passage from Sumerian myths to the Old Testament, treating the rib has become creation from the rib. "The Lady of life" became the Old Testament's Havva (Eve).

    Adad
    ( Sumerian Ishkur, West Semitic Hadad or Addu )
    Weather god of the Babylonian and Assyrian pantheons. As god of storms he was both giver and destroyer of life. Son of Anu (An),the god of heaven. His consort was Shalash. Also a god of oracles and divination. The bull and the lion were sacred to him, as was the number six. The cypress was his symbol.

    General CommentThe line "arise as did the gods, Ninti" is a call for women to rise up, as Ninti was esentially the first woman, Eve.
