____________________

/ System of a Down / I think that this song definitely is about the Armenian genocide in the

/ Holy Mountains / beginning of the 19th century done by the Turkish army. It is about how the

/ Hypnotize / Turkish soldiers became cold-hearted killers, liars and demons as they were

/___________________/ ordered to burn down villages and to kill even women and children. Amongst

the killed were also many of the members of System of a Down's family members.

The river Aras is the river that runs at the border between Armenia and Turkey, and Holy Mountain

refers to the mountain Ararat, the mountain considered to be biblical holy mountain, where the Ark

of Noah grounded after the great flood, which was taken to be Turkish ground after the genocide.
