/ System of a Down / I think that this song is about the American people

/ Hypnotize / neglecting to stand up against the American government

/ Hypnotize / ruling the country by blinding and brainwashing its

/___________________/ population with 'propaganda' to cover all its fraud.

'The kids at Tiananmen Square' was the Chinese student's

demonstration in 1989, which ended up being slaughtered by the Chinese police.

Ironically, it was against the Chinese Government's violent treatment of its own

population and the censored freedom of speech, which SOAD sadly admits is

conspicuously maintained in America this day as well. ...Regretfully the Americans

are just innocently 'sitting in their cars and waiting for their girls'...

Why don't you ask the kids at Tiananmen Square?

Was fashion the reason why they were there?

They disguise it, hypnotize it

Television made you buy it

 

I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl

 

She's scared that I will take her away from there

Dreams that her country left with no one there

Mesmerize the simple minded

Propaganda leaves us blinded

 

I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl

 

I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl
