Overall Meaning

The lyrics of System of a Down's song "U-FIG" express a desire for rebellion and a call to arms against the "pathetic flag waving ignorant hicks." The chorus encourages listeners to either melt in the sun or hide in the sky, indicating a desire to escape the current state of society. The verses are more aggressive, urging listeners to join the cause and beat and eat those who are blind to the problems facing the world.


The lyrics are a commentary on the darkness and despair that many people feel, and the desire to rise up against those who are contributing to these problems. The repeated "beat em' beat em' beat em' beat em' beat em' beat em'" and "eat em' eat em' eat em' eat em' eat em' eat em'" lines are a call to action for listeners to take matters into their own hands and fight back against those who are causing harm. The final lines of the song, "I'll show your mind / That you have a mind," suggest that the true battle is within oneself, and that recognizing one's own agency and power is the key to change.
