"Coma" as written by Serj Tankian, Brian Patrick Carroll, Ali Azam and Dan Monti....
He stays still
He stays here
Unholy, unholy
He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy

Ya la?, ya la?...

Nothing
(Nothing)
Now that I have nothing
(Now that I have nothing)
I resolve to be nothing
(I resolve to be nothing)
Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain

(Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
I resolve to be nothing (X2)

Nothing
(Nothing)
Nothing
(Nothing)

He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy
Makes me feel unholy

We stay
No cause, stay

    My Interpretationheres how i interpret the song:

    the song is about this girl that lives in this temple, closed off from the rest of the world, with a population of less then a thousand people. this temple is a very strict place, with ancient customs and sacred grounds. she is a very pure being, as she abides to rules and standards that the temple demands. in short, she is the perfect model of a woman in this temple.

    every day, she comes out into the courtyard to find that a young man is looking at her, while she casts looks back at him shyly. she doesnt have any interaction with the man, save for one passive glance a at at noon. she deeply longs for more than an awkward glance from a distance each day with the man for a long time. one day, the man approaches her.

    the man hands her a note beautifully drawn, requesting her presence in private in the abandoned stone room carved into the wall, in the outskirts of the temple. she instantly agrees, feeling overjoyed that this man who she had been thinking about ever so long requested her in private.

    midnight envelops the temple as the woman silently steps into the long undisturbed stone shelter. she looks around for the man a moment, then is abruptly kicked in the neck, and knocked to the floor. in an instant, her mouth is sealed by a thick, coarse cloth, and her clothes are being stripped from her body. she tries to scream, but can only manage a lame moan.

    the man rapes her. she has no power, no control, nothing but utter pain, disgrace, and hate. she cries as the man laughs at what he is doing. she cries for many reasons- the pain is indescribable and unfathomable in comparison to anything, the man she thought was the center of the world is raping her for personal pleasure at the cost of her pain and suffering. worst of all, her innocence and her honor is stolen from her- the man has taken her virginity by force.

    she returns home in the morning, unable to tell anyone of what has been done, and unable to prove the wicked crime that has been committed. she walks out into the courtyard to find the man staring at her, with a lustful, unsettling look in his eye. she sees him, and quickly looks away. the memories of what happened last night were still fresh and despicable.

    for years, she walks across the courtyard to go to her school, and the man's dark gaze is laid upon her. she need not see his eyes to feel that he is looking at her, only the cold, sad feeling she comes to know all too well. she is condemned to a life of constant humiliation and grief, never forgetting for a moment what the man did to her.

    General Commentmy mistake, I forgot this song had lyrics.

    He stays still.
    He stays down.
    Unholy, unholy.

    He stays still.
    Stay unto me.
    Makes me feel unholy.

    Nothing.
    (Nothing)
    Now that I have nothing.
    (Now that I have nothing)
    I resolve to be nothing.
    (I resolve to be nothing)
    Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain.
    (Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
    I resolve to be nothing.

    Nothing.
    (Nothing)
    Now that I have nothing.
    (Now that I have nothing)
    I resolve to be nothing.
    (I resolve to be nothing)
    Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain.
    (Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
    I resolve to be nothing.

    Nothing. (Nothing)
    Nothing. (Nothing)

    He stays still.
    Stay unto me.
    Makes me feel unholy.
    Makes me feel unholy.

    We stay.
    No cause, stay.
    We stay.
    No cause, stay.
    We stay. (Makes me feel unholy)
    No cause, stay.
    We stay. (Makes me feel unholy)
    No cause, stay.
    We stay. (Makes me feel unholy)
    No cause, stay.

    (Unholy)
    No.
