"Feed Us" as written by and Serj Tankian....
Maybe we believe
She was ready to go
In the morning light
Maybe you believe
That she was made of gold
In the east where you killed her
You lead us
When you need to feed us
You comfortably delete us
When you need your fetus,

You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out,

Goodbye, goodbye,

She speaks unrehearsed
Languages from skin
In the morning light
Painting shadows on the
faces of the dead
In front of their windows,



You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Before its too late,

Do you know that life is ending,
As we go, the dots connecting,
We had our chance to save the garden,
As it dies, our souls will harden,
With these words chastising your conscience
Were breaking through and praying for transcendence.

But you deceived us all now,

You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out and,
Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
Stars look out.

    General CommentAlright the song Feed Us by Serj Tankian might have many meanings but i think i have found the true meaning to the song. When the song starts out..."Maybe we believe,
    She was ready to go,
    In the morning light,
    Maybe you believe,
    That she was made of gold,
    In the East where you killed her..."
    I think it means that we thought that we, being America thought that George Bush needed to leave as a president and that in the morning when people woke up they saw that he was reelected in 2004 and the East being the eastern stated mostly republican states voted him in and killed the country.
    When the song says
    "You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
    Stars look out and,
    Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
    Stars look out...."
    It is talking about all the lies that Bush gave us as a country and how he totally ruined America with the war. and the Stars look out is all the dead American soldiers wanting to just eat Bush and they want to be feeded.
    then when it says
    "She speaks unrehearsed,
    Languages from skin,
    In the morning light,
    Painting shadows on the,
    Faces of the dead,
    In front of their windows..."
    It is talking about bush trying to talk to iraqi people and trying to make peace but really they hate him and throw shoes at him.

    Overall the song is about George Bush screwing us over.

    She is American soldiers, you made us beleive they were ready to go and fight a flawless victory against Iraq. but when they got to the east they fell.

    "You lead us,
    When you need to feed us,
    You comfortable delete us,
    When you need your fetus..."
    feeding us lies and propoganda to get us to support the war he started. then when we don't matter he deletes us.

    "You cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
    Stars look out and,
    Cheat us when you feed us with the lie,
    Stars look out...."
    i thinks the stars look out and say "goodbye" to the people who died for an unworthy cause.

    "She speaks unrehearsed,
    Languages from skin,
    In the morning light,
    Painting shadows on the,
    Faces of the dead,
    In front of their windows..."(i don't think its windows but widows)
    we fight people, not by talking through and coming to an agreement but by soloing out skill color and killing whoever doesn't look pleasing.(this could also mean the discrimination towards people because they are from the middle east)
    painting shadows of the dead is forgetting about them, forgetting their existence. as their widows watch them do so.

    "Do you know that life is ending,
    As we go, the dots connecting,
    We had our chance to save the garden,
    As it dies, our souls will harden,
    With these words chastising your conscience,
    We're breaking through and praying for transcendence..."
    they don't know that life is ending, the more the go the more things get worse. we had a chance of peace but as peace is no longer available our souls grow harder and we hate even more.
    the gov is punishing your conscience with words of propoganda. yet people break through and pray to surpass the governments actions.

    thats about it
    change fetus to feed us
    and windows to widows

    General Commentxchipperx i think you are basically right, but i think it actually is fetus. basically it means that they delete the people just so that the can get to the fetus (unborn baby) so that they can raise the children to join the war. however you are right about the widows things...it aint windows =P

    General CommentWoah, woah. Does this song show that Serj Studies or has studied the bible? Lets break it down.

    Babylon is considered the 'System of Satan' named after the great city Babylon in Mesopotamia (located in the eastern part of the world) because of its depravity and false religion ect. This 'modern day babylon' is pictured by Jesus as a great harlot because 'she' sleeps with and controls the leaders of the world.

    Now, satan leads us, finding and raising us up from children with false belifs that promise life but are lies, stars look out 'heaven and its inhabitants'. Painting faces on the dead means our common belif in ghosts when really, they are a lie to hide the fact these things that happen are satan's cause and his fellow angles that have forsaken god(demons).

    Alot of people followed and still follow babylon the great so that involves the gold thing. Life is ending because Satan will be destroyed eventually by God and all the lies will be undone (before its too late). Decieved = pulled us away from god. Comfortably delete us can point to the fact Satan does not care about our lives (gods creations). Because the end is coming we are too late to save the garden (of eden/earth). We are breaking through and praying (because we are learning the end is coming). (dots connecting means things are becoming clearer). Um by the looks of it Serj has little faith in that god will make things better at the end of it all.

    This is what I think at the moment lol xD and yes its widows not windows. So yeah, very good song. Also I deeply apolgize if I have gotten a few minor facts wrong but I kinda blotched this out after thinking about it :S. Also this is just a take on it, no arguing about religion please.
