Disowned Inc.

length: 4:07

I can feel you far away, your hesitation matching mine.
Sadness left me far away yea,
Your contemplation turn to wine
An old man stares at me
Mutual bizarre revere
Laugh at thy neighbor
Pretend you are sane, just the same
You survived in vain
Laugh at thy neighbor
Pretend you are sane just the same,
You survived in vain

Time is the father of existence
Rhyme the brother of resistance
Broken down by men in their crazy mind
? is the mother of unknown distance
Will the sister of persistence
Stripping under the elusive sky.

A motion of the devotion,
Euphoric scriptures of the ocean
Laugh at thy neighbor
Pretend you are sane just the same
You survived in vain

Time is the father of existence
Rhyme the brother of resistance
Broken down by men in their crazy minds
? is the mother of unknown distance
Will the sister of persistence
Stripping under the elusive sky.

I felt so alone
Till you came into my life
And stopped the pain
I felt so alone then you came into my life
And poured the rain
I feel so alone, dressed in the dark silk clothing of your own disdain
I feel so disowned since your children took up arms in your own name.

God sings different in every language.
God sings different in every language.

Impulsed delusion, compulsive solution
God speak different in every language.
Impulsed delusion, compulsive solution
God speaks different in every language.

Borders Are…

length: 4:38
composer: Serj Tankian
lyricist: Serj Tankian
Never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go

Borders are, the gallows
Of our collective national egos
Subjective, lines in sand
In the water separating everything

Fear is the cause of separation
Backed with illicit conversations
Procured by constant condemnations
National blood-painted persuasions

Here's my song, for the free
No, it's not about praise and publicity
Corprotocracy, what a hypocrisy
Aristocracy versus democracy

Fear is the cause of separation
Backed with illicit conversations
Procured by constant condemnations
National blood-painted persuasions

The king is dead and now
We're dancing in the streets
As the waters rise we're
Merely covering our feet

I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go

Fear is the cause of separation
Backed with illicit conversations
Procured by constant condemnations
National blood-painted persuasions

Fear is the cause of separation
Backed with illicit conversations
Procured by constant condemnations
National blood-painted persuasions

The kind is dead and now
We're dancing in the streets
As the waters rise we're
Merely covering our feet

Your gods are dead and now
We're dancing in the streets
As the waters rise we're
Merely cowering in defeat

I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
I never let you go
Never let you go

I never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go

I never let you go
Never let you go
Never let you go

Deserving?

length: 4:06
I don't deserve you, why can't you see?
I will desert you, why don't you leave?
But you put your faith in me one last time.
You, you put your faith in love all the time.

I don't deserve you, why can't you see?
I will desert you, why don't you leave?
But you put your faith in me one last time.
You, you put your faith in love all the time.

I believe that you, you and me, you and me,
We, we've achieved a love that we, we can see.

I don't deserve you, why can't you see?
I will desert you, why don't you leave?
But you put your faith in me one last time.
You, you put your faith in love all the time.

I believe that you, you and me, you and me,
We, we've achieved a love that we, we can see.
For, I believe that you, you and me, you and me,

I believe that you, you and me, you and me,
We, we've achieved a love that we, we can see.
For, I believe that you, you and me, you and me,

So go find your path, take me with you.

We'll depend on our love here we
Go find your path, take me with you.

Here we go!
You know, you know.

We've achieved a love we can see.
My love.

Beatus

length: 4:42
Yesterday when you opened your eyes
In the morning, and you rushed my soul,
Memories connect them all to her.
Have lost you again, possibly amidst forever,
The strong winds have shaken me inside,

When you touch me, I feel it,
When you touch me, I feel you.

You've become my addiction,
My mental preoccupied obsession,
To hear your voice I extend towards the sun.
Eating makes me think of you,
This city has become your face,
Strangling myself in silence,

When you touch me, I feel it,
When you touch me, I feel you,
When you touch me, I feel it,
When you touch me, I feel you.

I feel it
I feel it
I feel it

Have I lost you again, possibly amidst forever,
The strong winds have shaken me inside,
The sun barely giving of herself,
I'm strangled in my aloneness, lockness,
Lock this before it's gone.
The collaboration and association,
Hear the story of another women in time,
Giving permission for buying a gift,
For the bearer of the selfish

Yesterday when you opened your eyes
In the morning, and you rushed my soul,
Memories connect them all to her.
Eating makes me think of you,
This city has become your face,
Strangling myself in my silence,

When you touch me, I feel it,
When you touch me, I feel you,
When you touch me, I feel it,
When you touch me, I feel you.
I feel it, when you touch me

Reconstructive Demonstrations

length: 5:05
They say women cry when walls retire,
They say dead men die when walls retire,
When walls retire

Unconventional deconstructive conversations
Teach us how to eat,
I, will never let you go
Conversational reconstructive demonstrations
Teach us how to speak,
Why, confess the final blow

Teach us how to eat from your broken hands,
'Cause nothing seems to grow,
Teach us how to speak,
The language of your only dreams

No one seems to understand that,
We are falling to our knees.

I forgot to pray, you forgot to say please,
Kill me, I, will never let you go,
I forgot to go, you forgot to know me,
Teach us how to speak, why confess the final blow

Teach us how to eat from your broken hands,
'Cause nothing seems to grow,
Teach us how to speak,
The language of your only dreams

No one seems to understand that,
We are falling to our knees,
Blindness serves not god nor men,
So we are falling into disease

I'm falling into disease,
I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling
I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling
We're falling we're falling we're falling we're falling
Into, into disease, disease, disease, disease
Disease disease disease disease disease
Disease disease disease
We've fallen we fallen we fallen
We've fallen we fallen we fallen

No one seems to understand that,
We are falling to our knees,
Blindness serves not god nor men,
So we are falling into disease,
Disease.

Electron

length: 3:46
We follow the ever-falling rain,
Electrons protons fight again,
So, we run,
We follow the ever-rising sun,
With feelings of all becoming one,
Then, we fly,
We fly in our dreams ever so bold,
Swimming the seas covered with gold
Behold, proceed,
Proceed with the blessing of all the gods
Amidst the time of men at odds
See, believe!

Tell me, what it is that we believe,
The storm shines bright,
Tell me, what it is that we believe,
The storm shines bright,
Storm shines bright,
Storm shines bright

Grapevines of thoughts lighting the skies
Overwhelmingly of demise
So, we sing
We sing to the spirit world so close
Providing our vital life force
Then, we breathe

We breathe with the breath of I-Ching
With the spirit that moves through all things
Now, we see
Seeing of all that is alive
Will be the way to survive
Life, released

Tell me, what it is that we believe,
The storm shines bright,
Tell me, what it is that we believe,
The storm shines bright,
Tell me, what it is that we believe,
The storm shines bright,
Storm shines bright, storm shines bright,
So bright.

Gate 21

length: 2:43
The love that you bring
You bring me along
The pain that you give
It gives me a home

Do you wanna stay by my side
Do you want me to turn and hide
We are disappearing inside
Seeing pictures of our goodbyes

When we, we believe
That our love will survive
The pain that you bring
Brings me all alone

Do you love me,
Do you hate me,
Do you wanna believe me,
Do you think that you don't need me
Do you wanna deceive me

I can't think that it's all over, don't want to forget.
I can't live the disappointment down, I want to repress your
Goodbye
Goodbye

The design, we broke the mold
The dreams when you see, that goodbyes aren't for long

Please follow me
To the borders of destiny
I don't want to break from your side
The falling ground screams, goodbye

Please follow me
To the borders of destiny
I don't want to break from your side
The falling ground screams, goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
The design, we broke the mold
The dreams when you see, that goodbyes aren't for long

Yes, It’s Genocide

length: 3:15
I want to die for your (plural) terror,
I want to die for your fear,
I want to die for your life,
I want to die for your life.

I want to die for your terror,
I want to die for your fear,
I want to die for your life,
I want to die for your life.

I want to die for your terror,
I want to die for your death,
I want to die for your fear,
I want to die for your life,

I want to die for your terror
I want to die for your death,
I want to die for your fear,
I want to die for your life,

I want to die for your terror
I want to die for your death
I want to die for your life,
I want to die for your terror,
I want to die for your fear,
I want to die for your life.

Peace Be Revenged

length: 3:59
Where are we to go
How can we survive
When the falling rain seems to cease
We will all have to go,

Where are we to go
How could we survive
When the falling rain seems to cease
We will all go, we'll all go,

We have built our lives,
Without nature in mind,
Slowly we've become the disease
But we won't go

Those that survive
Connect with all alive
Peace will be returned,
We need to praise you,
Peace will first be revenged.

Once we used to hear,
Once we used to hear,
The light footsteps of dear,
Now we have no fear
And in turn we'll disappear,
We have built our lives,
Without nature in mind,
Slowly we've become the disease
But we won't go

Those that survive
Connect with all alive
Peace will be returned,
We need to praise you,
Peace will first be revenged.

Revenged,
Revenged

When the rain washes all the mitochondria
Try to steer your intentions into love
When your fears mixed with rain wash your ocean's fear,
I won't be here then, you won't be here when,
When the rain washes all the mitochondria
Try to steer your intentions into love
When your tears mixed with rain wash your ocean's fear,
I won't be here then, you won't be here when,

Just watch the rain,
Just watch the rain,
Rain, watch the rain

Where do we go,
How do we meet you?

Left of Center

length: 3:07
Are we a fantasy?
Swimming in theocracy
We are far from holy
The wholeness of one
Repeat after me

We lost the key of sight
Now blind we fear in flight
We are far from love
But silence is golden
Please observe

Fighting your empire
Defending your vampires
Far away,
We're going too far

Bombing your ignorance
We're feeding your insolence
Far away, we're going too far
We're going too far

If today I die
I cannot deny
The life that I live
For what I say not
Befit myself in time

No time to die or dare
No structures of a pyramid
No train, horses to rise
Surmise my position
My words define

Fighting your empire
Defending your vampires
Far away,
We're going too far

Bombing your ignorance
We're feeding your insolence
Far away, we're going too far
We're going too far

We go forward
We go backward
Living
Dying
We're dying
We're living
We're living
We're dying
We're crying
We're seeing
We're living
We're breathing
Dying
Seeing

Fighting your empire
Defending your vampires
Far away,
We're going too far

Bombing your ignorance
We're feeding your insolence
Far away, we're going too far

We're going too far

Wings of Summer

length: 4:46
Well, I, I, want to fly, fly,
On the wings, wings of summer,
But you, you put your eyes,
You put your eyes on mine.

Go, perfect your fall
And no matter what
Smile for them all
For today, we see never
Tomorrow's menu reads forever

I, I want to fly
On the wings, of summer
But you, put your eyes, on mine,
I, I want to fly
On the wings, of summer
But you, put your eyes, on mine

Don't confess to the crime
Till you lavish in your concubine
When you think you got clever
They'll well you in and pull the lever

Now I, I want to fly,
On the wings of summer
But you put your eyes on mine,
Now, I, I'm going to fry,
Cause I ran over the guy with a Hummer,
But you, put your eyes, eyes on the divide
Now I, I, want to fly, fly on the wings of summer
But you, you put your eyes, you put your eyes on mine.

When you think that it's all over
They'll clip your wings and make you roll over
Go perfect your great fall
No matter what, smile for them all
For today we see never
Tomorrow's menu reads forever
For today, we see never,
Tomorrow's menu reads
