Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Na-na-na, na-na-na

Hey you, see me, pictures crazy
All the world I've seen before me passing by
I've got nothing to gain, to lose
All the world I've seen before me passing by

You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel it anymore

Anymore na-na-na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na

Hey you, are me, not so pretty
All the world I've seen before me passing by
Silent my voice, I've got no choice
All the world I've seen before me passing by

You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel it anymore
I don't see (anymore)
I don't hear (anymore)
I don't speak (anymore)
I don't feel

Na-na-na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na, na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na

Hey you, see me, pictures crazy
All the world I've seen before me passing by
I've got nothing to gain, to lose
All the world I've seen before me passing by

You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel there anymore
You don't care 'bout how I feel
I don't feel it anymore
I don't sleep (anymore)
I don't eat (anymore)




I don't live (anymore)
I don't feel (anymore)

Overall Meaning

"ATWA" is a song by System of a Down that appears on their 2001 album "Toxicity". The acronym ATWA stands for "Air, Trees, Water, Animals", which was coined by Charles Manson to represent the things that he believed humans should protect. Although the song's lyrics may not be directly related to this, it highlights the band's concern about environmental issues and the destructive impact that humans have on nature.


The lyrics describe the singer's disillusionment with the world and the people in it. The line "You don't care 'bout how I feel, I don't feel there anymore" suggests a feeling of isolation and disconnection from society. The repetition of "na-na-na" throughout the song seems to be a way of expressing a loss of words or an inability to communicate.


The song's chorus repeats the phrase "I don't feel it anymore" several times, which can be interpreted in different ways. It could be a reference to the singer's emotional numbness or detachment from reality. Or it could be a statement about the apathy and indifference that people exhibit towards environmental issues.
