/ System of a Down / I think this song is about this guy being dumped by the

/ Revenga / love of his life and how he gets so furious that he gets

/ Mezmerize / murderous thoughts about her. It could also be interpret

/___________________/ with a perverse twist. ‘Bleeding in a sink’ and ‘the taking

is in the making baby’ could hint at the poor guy made his

now former girlfriend in his rage and eager for revenge. I think he would do it to

leave his signs at her, like showing her that he had actually meant something in

her life.

Poisoning a drink

Bleeding in a sink

Choking with a link

Killing with a stink

Just your mother's ho

 

Bleeding in a sink

Poisoning a drink

Burning up

My sweet Clementine

 

Trampling a shrink

Bleeding in a sink

Hallelujah wink

Getting on the brink

Just your mother's ho

 

Hallelujah wink

Murdering a shrink

Burning up

 

My sweet revenge

Will be yours for the taking

It's in the making baby

 

Killing with a stink

Bleeding in a sink

Poisoning a drink

Getting on the brink

Just your mother's ho

 

Bleeding in a sink

Trampling a shrink

Burning up

My sweet Clementine

 

Poisoning a drink

Bleeding in a sink

Choking with a link

Killing with a stink

Just your mother's ho

 

Poisoning a drink

Bleeding in a sink

Burning up

 

I saw her laugh

Then she said "Go away"

 

My sweet revenge

Will be yours it's in the making

It's in the taking, making, baking, taking, faking

 

Should've been, could've been

Would've been've, would've been you

Should've been, could've been

Would've been, would've been you
