Lonely Day
System of a Down Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Should be banned
It's a day that I can't stand
The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Shouldn't exist
It's a day that I'll never miss
Such a lonely day
And it's mine
The most loneliest day of my life

And if you go, I wanna go with you
And if you die, I wanna die with you
Take your hand and walk away

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life (life)

Such a lonely day




And it's mine
It's a day that I'm glad I survived

I'm not an expert, i'm not a pychologist, and i could be wrong, but since System Of A Down is open to all interpretations, and they themselves said that we could interpretate their songs the way we wish, here is what i think...

I've had millions of days like these, i used to be a very loneley guy, and i know that activities such as Drawing, listening to music or playing chess, can be entertaining but...

That doesn't fill that hole you still feel, that need that you just can't figure out what it is.

For me, fire represents your own desperation, only you can see it, only you wish your neighboor opens his front door, comes out and says "Hello"
Only you wish some kids decide to come out and play.

Only you wish pepole had a reason to be out, like they used to be other days when you didn't wish for it or even wished the opposite.

Fire is the representation of that feeling of loneleyness that no one cares about, and there is nothing anyone can do to put the fire down...

It's just you and your loneleyness...the fire that only you can see.....that only you care about...



@Jack_Woods

OutOfRehab Oh, i didn't know that...

Well, now that makes sense, i guess that feeling he had in the moment, still leaved some scars, and i know what it feels like to be close to death, the difference is that everyone survived and it was water...

To resume the story, me and my family where at the beach, we decided to go deeper into the water, but there was a red flag, we ignored it, and we where standing at the border of the sand, recieving the waves...

Without knowing it, the waves where slowly carrying us away from the land, and at some point, we couldn't reach any land to stand on, then we realized that the waves where too strong to make it back, so while the rescuer was on his way, i experienced how it was to see your entire life, before your eyes...

This of course was not helped by the fact that to this day, i can't swim...

So, then the rescuer made it to us with some life savers, and took us back to the beach...

Everything else was back to normal the rest of the trip, but i couldn't help but seeing it everywhere...

And thinking what would happen if only i survived?, if only i died, what would happen if nobody survived?

And i think that part of "And if you go, i wanna go with you, and if you die, i wanna die with you... Take your hand and walk away..."

Expresses what i would feel if only i survived from that, i would have suicidal thoughts probably, but if i recover, it would be a scar that only made me stronger, just to realize that i want to live anyway...

"It's a day that i'm glad i survived..."

I know the feeling. After so much time i quarantine me and my friends decided to meet up and I was so happy for like 15 minutes
After that I felt just a void. So empty.
This wasn't the only time I felt that void. It's always been there. Sometimes showing itself more sometimes showing itself less
Thing is I dont know what to do to fill the void
When I was in middle school noone talked to me and I felt lonely because I had no friends
Now that I am in high school and I have friends I feel lonely because I feel like no one really sees the real me and I have to put on a mask because they wont accept the real me.
Arguements at home don't really help either. They just make the void larger
Sometimes I feel like I just want to sit in a corner and cry. I feel the whole weight of the world crushing me and I just want to let go. Yet I can't. I can't cry and I never had the courage to slide the knife.
And even when I am with my best friends the void doesnt go away. Even when I tell myself that everything is alright it just isn't,
Guys is this some kind of phase or should I be worried about somting. It's not like I'm not feeling happiness anymore. On the contrary there are days that I feel like the most careless person in the world. In fact those are most of my days. But the ones that I feel empty are just so crushing. And everytime there is a fight at home the void shows itself and doesnt hide for days, hell, maybe even weeks. And it's crushing. I don.t want to live during these days, but I keep telling myself that it will eventually get better. That I am better off alive than sitting in a puddle of my own blood.
Also yes this might be a rant of sort, yes there will inevitabley be some edgy kids saying that noone cares and maybe they are right. Maybe noone does. But just writing this down, knowing that someone might see this and have an answer and might help me gives me hope and helps me move on.

@@47goneroge that’s hard-core!

I had a similar thing where I was falsely accused, on going she wasn’t well when we met post-traumatic stress and many other issues the Internet may have woken me up, but it put my misses to sleep narcissism and self-interest have become her entire being…..

Worse than that mate, I spoke to a Freemason back in 2010 at my mates week, his father’s best friend and he told me what would happen with women before it happened………… we were together for 16 years, so we’ve been together for some time at that point when he told me about the social programming of women and what it was leading to. It was one of those moments where it made so much sense that I instantly rejected it. Funnily enough, he had some very interesting stuff to say about how little we know about where we live, he also told me that he was a lecturer on the Free Masonic circuit he went from launch to launch lecturing on esotericism, sacred geometry, numerology, etymology et cetera, but what he said to me about what would happen to the family unit and to men and women and this would be encouraged, and assisted through the Legal system. My chin was on the floor because I knew that he was right, but it must’ve been written all over my face what I thought about it, everything he told me has come to pass……….

We need to separate ourselves from the system and take back our personal sovereignty and start exercising some discernment. Otherwise, this will only get worse.

I hope things work out for you and that you and your partner stay true to each other despite the chaos. Regards
