"Pictures" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odajian and John Dolmayan....
Thought you'd relate every will
Perish it
Your chocolate soul
Help us wrong
Deny your past

I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind

Circumvent your Tiki doll
When in fights
They're on the go
You can't tell me that I'm wrong

I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind

Fair ways
For us
When the present can be sealed

Away
Cold rust
Now the days can be cleared

Fair ways
For us
Till the moment is revealed

Then turns to rust
For the mighty conquered meal

Can't you look at my shamed ass?
Now she's gone and got us once
You can't see me Saturday

I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind
I've got pictures on my mind

I've got pictures on my mind

    General CommentPffft. C'mon people, it ain't that hard. It's about taking a shit.

    I can see people criticizing already, but you gotta remember System of a Down is a band that borderlines the avant-garde, and as such, doesn't write straight-forward lyrics about clichéd themes (no shit).

    Read the lyrics again with the meaning I propse on your mind; it makes sense.
