"Revenga" as written by Serj Tankian and Daron Malakian....
Poisoning a drink, bleeding in a sink
Choking with a link, killing with a stink
Just your mother's, ho

Bleeding in a sink, poisoning a drink
Burning up, my sweet Clementine

Trampling a shrink, bleeding in a sink
Hallelujah wink, getting on the brink
Just your mother'ssyste, ho

Hallelujah wink, murdering a shrink
Burning up, On my sweet revenge
Will be yours for the taking
It's in the making baby, oh

My sweet revenge
Will be yours for the taking
It's in the making baby

Killing with stink, bleeding in a sink
Poisoning a drink, getting on the brink
Just your mother's, oh

Bleeding in a sink, trampling a shrink
Burning up, my sweet Clementine

Poisoning a drink, bleeding in a sink
Choking with a link, killing with a stink
Just your mother's, ho

Poisoning a drink, bleeding in a sink
Burning up, my sweet revenge
Will be yours for the taking
It's in the making baby

My sweet revenge
Will be yours for the taking
It's in the making baby

I saw her laugh
Then she said
Go away

I saw her laugh
Then she said, then she said
Go away, away

My sweet revenge
Will be yours for the taking
It's in the making baby

My sweet revenge
Will be yours it's in the making
It's in the taking, making, baking, taking, faking, oh
Ho
My sweet Clementine
Ho

Shoulda been, coulda been, woulda been, woulda been you
Shoulda been, coulda been, woulda been, woulda been you

    General CommentTo add to my comment above, it's a song about abortion, from a pro-life extremist's view.

    Now it should make a bit more sense to some of you.

    And it's a great song too, btw.

    General Commentyes, its Clementine. awesome song. its cool how it first starts out all fast and then it slows down to a melodic state claming they will seek revenge.

    General CommentThis song remids me a lot of the Japanese Novel. Battle Royale. Some people seek revenge on others. Others are there just to slaughter.

    General CommentIt is Clementine. I've listened to this song enough to know. Definitely digging the guitar solo towards the end, too.

    General Commenti love this song, how come im the 5th person to comment. a great song. im not to familiar with system of a downs lyrical metaphors and stuff, so i don't know whether this is about a girl who broke and used the love of a guy'. and the is feeling crappy and depressed and these are his thoughts.
    i think im rambling.

    Great song though. Love it.

    General CommentWell, obviously this song has to do with getting revenge on someone, and here i think it's getting revenge on a cheating girlfriend or something like that. I'm not sure if this is right but atleast its what I think. My sweet clementine could be the name maybe and poisoning clementine's drink and watching her suffer is getting revenge. The lines about her saying, "Go away," could be her trying to break up. And the lines "should have been....etc." means that if you didn't screw up the relationship, you would have been the one.


    Just my interpretation

    General CommentWell, all of the 'Posining a drink" "Bleading in a Sink" and all of that such, is ment for ways to kill. Apparently, the character they created, or the person who went through that, asked somebody out who they really liked.. possably even loved.. They laughed, then coldly said "go away" so the person is planing on getting Revenge. Although it says here, in the booklet that comes with the CD, yes it does say Clemintine, but it doesn't say just you mothers HO, it says your.. not you. Easy mistake to make.. ^^;

    The person would have given the girl everything, "shoulda been you!" part... and the "Just your mothers HO" means that the girl is just a ho, and mother really only states it as like mother fucker, or son of a bitch, or something of the such like that. Just to add more.. "It's in the making, baby!" means, they're planing on it now.. They're deciding what to do. Clemintine, is I'm assuming the girl, because "Burning Up" then directly after that it's "My Sweet Clemintine" put it together, "Burning Up My Sweet Clemintine" as another way to kill her.

    General Commentthe " i saw her laugh go away" part and guitar part following that is absolutely brilliant, or perhaps its just me

    General CommentThe guitar solo you guys are referring to is actually taken from the norwegian black metal band Emperor. It's the theme from "I am the Black Wizards" (no, that's not a typo!) which is from their 1994 album "In the Nightside Eclipse". I was kinda surprised to hear it in a SOAD song, but not surprised most people didn't recognize it/know it's origin.
