trying so hard to let the cable sleep...
your tragic ending just couldnt feel...
destroyed in a world of weap...
in your eyes you didnt steal..
but i wont consider your love cheap..
not understanding was always your appeal...

System of a Down Interview
with Serj Tankian
420 interviewer in bold.
SERG in reg.
Rumor has it that you're an avid marijuana smoker... is it true?
I'm an avidian stoner, I'm actually a part time marijuana smoker.
Can you tell us a little bit about why you smoke?
It's somewhat a catalyst to flowing with music in some cases, as well as something that numbs the logical looping of the mind.
What's your position on legalizing marijuana?... Do you think it would help or hurt us?
Legalization is a must ! Scientific research shows that cigarettes and alcohol are way more damaging drugs than marijuana. The only reason it's not legal is cause anyone can grow it, so they can't always necessarily sell it to you in corporate dominated America. Not to mention the benefits of hemp as an agricultural asset. That's a whole other topic though.
I've heard that your song Peephole is about marijuana... is it true? ...Can you tell us what inspired you to write it?
Yes it is. The inspiration came from the spirit of the plant itself, I believe as in all things we ingest. It's the avenues of the stoned.
If you had a chance to chat with the President about marijuana, what would you say?
Get some of the boys in the Pentagon to smoke and maybe we can kill less people in the world today.
Can you name some of the other 420 bands that you've blazed with?
Snot, Slayer, Clutch, Hedpe, Wu-Tang, and many many more.
Doy you own any Hemp Clothes?
Any word on the new System of a Down recording and when you guys will be hitting the road again?
We're still writing in the studio as of now, and will have an album out next year sometime. Then we'll hit the road again.
Is there anything else you'd like to say to the 420 population before we go?
Vote for Nader, he's the only one that cares.
a pill to make you numb..
a pill to make you dumb..
a pill to make you anybody else...
all the drugs in this world...
wont save her, from herself..
(and all that could have been)
(it makes me sick to see)

my mind darkly curled..

in your eyes ive seen..
