"Soldier Side (Intro)" as written by Serj Tankian and Daron Malakian....
Dead man lying on the bottom of the grave
Wondering when savior comes is he gonna be saved
Maybe you're a sinner into your alternate life
Maybe you're a joker
Maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope he's never coming back
They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find the truth he's never going home

Young men standing on the top of their own graves
Wondering when Jesus comes are they gonna be saved
Cruelty to the winner, bishop tells the king his lies
Maybe you're a mourner
Maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope he's never coming back
They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find the truth he's never going home

Welcome to the soldier side
Where there's no one here but me
People all grow up to die
There is no one here but me
Welcome to the soldier side
Where there's no one here but me
People on the soldier side
There is no one here but me

    General CommentI am pretty sure they put this song on here to tribute pink floyds double album "the wall", where the end of disc 2 syncs into the begining of disc 1. So if u listen to the end of the hypnotize album, it syncs into the begining of the memerize album.

    General Commentanyone else get the feeling soldier-side is somehow related to suicide? Or am I just extra crazy because of this?

    General CommentI think this might be referring to the genocide of soldiers, led by the current war.

    General CommentAs a soldier (and yes I fought, as in I'm an infantryman, in this current war) I feel the suicide concept more then anything else from this.

    General CommentThis song is about Daron (SOAD'S guitarist) visiting his family, who is still in Iraq. They said so in a May issue of the Rolling Stone.
