System of a Down – Attack Lyrics

Produced By: Darin Malakian & Rick Rubin

You pyonged “System of a Down – Attack”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Breathing each other's lives
Holding this in mind
That if we fall, we all fall
And we fall alone

[Verse 2]
The cold insincerity of steel machines
Have consumed our euphoria
Transforming us into muted dreams
Dreaming of the day that

We attack

Attack, attack your fetal servitude
We attack
Attack, attack, attack with pesticide
We attack
All the years of propaganda
We shall attack

[Verse 3]
Books illustrate what we already know
Candles cry towards the sky
Racing your flags along polluted coast
Dreaming of the day that


Attack, attack

[Verse 1]

[Verse 4]
Was the philosophy of displaced mines
The bombing of all homes and villages
Truth is the only sword bleeding minds
Bleeding 'til the day that


Attack all the homes and villages
Attack all the schools and hospitals
You attack all the rapes and pillages
We shall attack
