"Chemicals" as written by and Daron Malakian....
I smacked your face,
You fell in love when I said "FUCK YOUR MOM!"
I looked at you, said "It's all over!"

I turned around and walked away
And you just grabbed my arm
I looked at you, said "I can't stay sober"

Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals.

MADNESS! feeling scared,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

MADNESS! No one cares,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

Oh maybe, baby,
Won't you rape me, wont you fantasize
About the time when we were lovers
I tried to phone you,
Tried to warn you but no compromise
I grabbed your ass under the cover

Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals

MADNESS! feeling scared,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

MADNESS! No one cares,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals

MADNESS! feeling scared,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

MADNESS! No one cares,
Looking around and nobody there,
When I say, "Fuck the world,
Let's get ready to rock!"
As I piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals!
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals!
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals!
Come eat some chemicals with me,
Come eat some chemicals.

    General CommentI just heard the song, and I hope spaghetti Dave is wrong. my first reaction of this song's meaning is that it's about growing up and how your surroungings can affect you in ways like this
    MADNESS! No one cares, - no one cares about you
    looking around and nobody there, - no one is around for you(parent,friends etc)
    when I say, "Fuck the world, - then you get this way, and you get this look on society and world
    let's get ready to rock!" and you start using drugs, "ready to rock-have a good time"
    as i piss on your face while you suck on my cock. - this is the way the you treat other people, you

    take advantage of others cause you donät care anymore.

    YOU is noone special by the way, just used it to put it in the explanations.

    This is my first reaction to the song and I live far away from a english-speaking country so I got a bit harder to understand the meaning of the song, I could be wrong but I surely think this is a way you can see it.

    Now when both serj and daron has made their own albums I ould like to see them back together again! SOAD!!!:)
    thanx for reading ppl

    General CommentIt's a really good song, i assure you!

    I don't agree with you, for me it's more about drugs (or maby the chemicals are a metaphore for all bad shit) and how we get tricked into doing "chemicals", maybe trends?

    General CommentLET'S GET ready to rock
    AS I piss on your face

    Also, cover > covers, sobber > sober, compromize > compromise.

    minor corrections. I'm just a spelling nazi.

    General CommentTellan you are definately on to it.

    Its about drugs, specifically he and his buddy in the song are ON drugs. He takes the drugs to get away and instead finds himself intensely focused on the state of our world. I also think the other person in the song achived the high they were after, because Darron feels alone.

    MADNESS! NO ONE CARES! LOOKIN AROUND AN NOBODY CARES - I think he is referring to the people he is tripping with being uninterested in debating what he is tripping over.

    -He also could be refering to people of the united states in general.

    Piss on your face/suck on my cock - I think its just a metaphor for random things that happen when your tripping.

    - In relation to the note up there, it could be a reference to the random things that happen to anybody when they are drunk.

    General CommentIt's about some chick he's with who stays with him no matter what he's doing, AKA "I piss on your face while you suck on my cock" that pretty much says it right there.

    General Commenti think thats its about drugs and how they make relationships hollow.

    "Fuck the world,
    let's get ready to rock!"
    as i piss on your face while you suck on my cock.

    this sounds like he and her are so drugged up that they just decide to forget the world and what is right and wrong. thus indulging in fornication and drugs. sexual immorality and drugs mixed into the same song has been a theme that was used in systemof a down and has obviously carried over to darens new project

    I smacked your face,
    you fell inlove when I said "FUCK YOUR MOM!"
    I looked at you, said "It's all over!"

    I turned around and walked away
    and you just grabbed my arm
    I looked at you, said "I can't stay sober"

    this obviously refers to a relationship with a girl that has lust but no love and could also be used as a paralell of drug usage and how you try to turn away but decide to do it anyway even though you know it is wrong

    That's referring to his feeling that he's alone, even though there's someone so close and so loyal to him that he overlooks them. Party 2 is allowing themselves to be degraded just to keep him happy, and he ignores them.

    General CommentMADNESS ?

    I think he watched the movie too many times ;).


    Anyway, this song is one of the best.

    In my opinion, he simply wants to say that when someones gets crazy, and dangerous, nobody dares to look at him and help the people he hurts. That's why he sings "nobody there, when I say, "Fuck the world".
