"Falling Stars" as written by and Serj Tankian....
Please raise your child today
The way that you were born to play
The way that we all disappeared
Allowing us to shatter fears

Pain, your every step
When you fooled enough to want to die
When you cry
You will find

Falling stars, drain every night
Falling stars, drain

Please raise your child today
The way that you were told to play
The way that we all disappeared
Allowing us to shatters fears

Pain, your every step
When you fooled enough to want to die
When you cry
You will find

Falling stars, drain every night
Falling stars, drain every night
Falling stars, drain

In an arrested silence
(In an arrested silence),
We plead to our insane gods
(We plead to our insane gods),
And their voices in our heads
(Their voices in our heads),
Like the silence in the woods,
To stop appeasing man
And his cruel culture of global economic domination (domination).
The balance remains between
That which is sought by the few (weapons!), profit,
And that which is sought by the most, peace
(Oh, peace)

Falling stars, drain every night
Falling stars, drain every night
I can't believe that you wanted me so much pain, every

    General CommentI think this song speaks about suicide and about how its important to look ahead and not back. Talks about falling stars draining every night, I think this is like shattered dreams being discarded, things that seem so important one day will seem like smaller matters later on in life.

    Another take on the song is that the falling stars are the beliefs and ideals of the country slowly being siphoned away from us.
    Thats my initial take on the song.

    General Commentyea i think this song is about suicide too. to not think about the past but the future.
    also to like pay attention to ur kids like when we were all small and paid really close attention to our little monitos or dolls and cared for them well.
    the stars falling to me is like as if they are your dreams and one by one if it fails and doesnt work out it fells draining on that person and slowly starts to go toward the thoughts of suicide

    but that is wat i think
    i could be wrong

    General CommentThe part that starts with "In an arrested silence" is from a poem called "Compassion" in Cool Gardens.

    General CommentMy mistake, the poem is called "Silence" and it's on page 30.

    General CommentTeach your kids to be fearless. Don't let them fear phony balogna like "al qiada" or "terrorism" or "religous wars" that the media scares you with everyday. Look out your window; life is awesome.

    The media is tricking everyone into believing the world WILL end. People don't care about life anymore for some reason... Someday you will realize what is going on, and you will cry.

    In an arrested silence (In an arrested silence),
    We plead to our insane gods (We plead to our insane gods),
    And their voices in our heads (Their voices in our heads),
    Like the silence in the woods,
    To stop appeasing man
    And his cruel culture of global economic domination (domination).
    The balance remains between
    That which is sought by the few (WEAPONS!), PROFIT,
    And that which is sought by the most, PEACE (Oh, peace).

    There is the inspiration for the song.

    General Commentshoot! "Falling stars" are the citizens of the US, and "drain every night" is crying. He's just saying at the begining that you will realize, and it will make you cry. When you look into it, you will see everyone else crying too.

    General CommentGot some good stuff and figured it out...

    Falling Stars refers to the United Sates of America (stars on the flag). The song is about letting go of false feeling of fear and need of security.

    In an arrested silence (In an arrested silence),

    - United States is a police state. People who peacfully protest about the most important things about the gov't get arrested every day.

    We plead to our insane gods (We plead to our insane gods),
    And their voices in our heads (Their voices in our heads),
    Like the silence in the woods,

    People in America have no real sense of religion or faith. Individuals have individual belief systems that the try and live up to, most of them from "false idols," morals and values through the Mainstream Media (Music, Movies, Television). People live following their own crazy guidelines and "the voices in their heads" and go nowhere ("Like the silence of the woods.")!


    To stop appeasing man
    And his cruel culture of global economic domination (domination).
    The balance remains between
    That which is sought by the few (WEAPONS!), PROFIT,
    And that which is sought by the most, PEACE (Oh, peace).

    Falling stars, drain every night

    - Speaks for itself now.

    General CommentDrain every night

    United States is bankrupt. We waste trillions of dollars in Iraq, and the The Federal Reserve just prints more money. Next [seemingly] day, we ask for more money, and waste it. The Fed prints more!
