"Whoring Streets" as written by and Daron Malakian....




Is there anybody here who hears me
Crying? I'm dying

Is there anybody here,
When it's over? Over

I'm just passin' the time, wonderin'
How you people will ever survive whor-
Ing down your whoring streets, killing
You while you're killing me

It's time, to show all you people
You'll never survive

Whoring down your whoring street
Killing you while you're killing me.

Is there anybody here who hears me
Crying? I'm dying

Is there anybody here,
When it's over? Over

I'm just passin' the time, wonderin'
How you people will ever survive whor-
Ing down your whoring streets, killing
You while you're killing me

It's time, to show all you people
You'll never survive

Whoring down your whoring street
Killing you while you're killing me.

Killing you while you're killing me.

Whoring down your whoring street
Killing you while you're killing me.

Is there anybody here who hears me
Crying? I'm dying

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about depression and relationship struggles.

    the song goes in chronological order of you're assumptions when depressed.

    "Is there anybody here
    Who hears me crying?
    I'm dying."

    Thats pretty self explanatory towards my idea..."is there anybody here who hears me crying" Usually not when you're depressed. "I'm dying" Sums up depression


    "Is there anybody here
    When it's over?"

    fearful of losing everyone because of a mood that people usually see as moody over depression. cutting people off, so-on

    "Over?"

    Is it going to end?

    The rest of the song is debatable on subject but keeping in mind what i previously said :

    I'm just passing the time
    Wondering how you people will ever survive
    Whoring down your whoring streets

    Disgusted by what used to be alright

    Killing you while you're killing me

    His actions are hurting others while their ignorance(maybe) is hurting him

    General CommentYeah... One more song in Daron's style. It's all about the Hollywood, like "Lost Hollywood" ("All your bitches put your hand in the air"), and about our dying society in those stupid style "i'm so cool man, and i know what your, blind motherfuckers, can't see". But I like it=))))

    General CommentYeah I agree, this album is very apocolyptic.

    "Is there anybody here, who hears me crying? Im dying."
    - That makes think of someone in pain (obviously). But their pain may not be physical, it may be mental. They may see what our world has become, and its killing them.

    "Killing you while your killing me. Its time, to show all you people you'll never survive."
    - To me this sort of means that we are too busy killing one another, to realize that without one another we will all die. We need each other to move on, but by exterminating each other, we exterminate ourselves.

    General CommentIs anyone, besides me, reminded of the beatles' "while my guitar gently weeps" from this song?
    "look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping,
    while my guitar gently weeps" sort of reminds me of "Is there anybody here who hears me crying?"

    My InterpretationIchigo900, I think you may be on to something. I've read somewhere that when Daron was 17 he took some interest in the Beatles, so it's very possible that he got some of his inspiration from them.

    I think that it is like "Lost in Hollywood" And this album shows that Daron and Serj definately had different views on the end of the world. I think Daron thinks that the end of the world is going to come from an outside person or object while Serj thinks it will come from the people themselves as they continue to live and destroy their lives and the world around them. (just a thought)

    But this, to me, says that the more we live like lost people, the more we destroy ourselves and those around us. (one point where it seems like him and Serj agree)

    Anyway, Daron is a very talented musician and I really appreciate this album. No matter the meaning, he has a way of grabbing your soul with the music and his voice. I really like Scars on Broadway.

    General Commenthas anyone seen what daron looks like at this point? dude looks like hes been crawling around iraq..im not saying this to be a racist idiot im just saying i think these songs are way deeper..i really believe this song is being narrated in the eyes of a terrorist..more specific maybe one of the terrorists getting ready to slam into one of the towers on 911..it carries the very judgemental muslim attitude when it talks of "whoring streets" and that the terrorist is sort of bitter about the fact that he has to die to show all the "whores" (americans) that the way we live is wrong and that even though he will be did once he does his deed so will so many of the "whores"
