"Fuck The System" as written by Serj Tankian, Daron V Malakian, Shavo Odajian and John Dolmayan....
I'm, but a little bit bit bit, show
But a little bit bit bit, shame
But a little bit, bit, bit
Bit, bit, bit

I'm, but a little bit bit bit, show
But a little bit bit bit, shame
But a little bit, bit, bit
Bit, bit, bit

I'm just the man in the back
Just the man in the back
Just the man in the back

I'm just the man in the back
Just the man in the back
Just the man in the back

War
Fuck the system

But a little bit, bit, bit
Bit, bit, bit

I'm, but a little bit bit bit, show
But a little bit bit bit, shame
But a little bit, bit, bit
Bit, bit, bit

I'm just the man in the back
Just the man in the back
Just the man in the back

I'm just the man in the back
Just the man in the back
Just the man in the back

But a little bit, bit, bit
Bit, bit, bit

I need to fuck the system
I need to fuck the sys
I need to fuck the system

    General CommentI agree completely with BSFL. War has been a part of humanity since the beginning of civilization. We're now at a critical juncture; we can't afford to fall into historical patterns. Instead of continuing to fight amongst ourselves, we must work together and achieve peace, or at least avoid the downfall of humankind. We "need to fuck the system."

    General CommentOne thing that really helped me understand these lyrics is that instead of "im just demeaning the pack" Serj definitly says Im just the meaning of pi (as in the mathematical symbol) This means that humanity will continue like the neverending pi (3.14blablabla) this is where reincarnation takes place, not only reincarnation of self, but also of the planet. After each reincarnation of the world itself, the world improves until it reaches the perfect enlightened state as a whole. But nothing can ever be perfect so we will go round and round in circles just like pi. So Serj says FUCK THE SYSTEm cuz the system is whats pulling us back from achieving not a perfect world but a much better one than this shithole. REVOLUTION THE ONLY SOLUTION!! WEVE TAKEN ALL THE SHIT NOW ITS TIME FOR RESTITUTION (P.L.U.C.K.). can somebody please tell me what the 'SYSTEM' means to them and why does Serj want to 'FUCK' it?, i would really appreciate learning from other peoples opinions, it could help in achieving Serj's interpretaion.

    General CommentSystem is just the way something happens.In math a system of numbers is a pattern.To follow up ure interpretation,FUCK THE SYSTEM is like breaking away from that pattern of numbers.To do things differently from the usual.I guess its to break away from the way things are done and lets make our own rules.
