[Hook: Serj Tankian]
The hook speaks about the corruption and hypocrisy of society, the “darkness” and “gods that are deceiving”. Governments deceive their citizens through propaganda and “painting blind faith” in policies that really aren’t what they make it out to be (such as anti-terrorism). “Holding guns while reading Bibles”, illustrates the irony of a society where people claim to be religious yet there is still so many shootings and so much violence everywhere.
