B.Y.O.B - System of a Down

BYOB is a song that was done by System of a Down that is a song about war and how it has been in a way made to seem not bad as it was back in old days. Lyrics/Video
This song can be interpeted as a way of how lightly people take war and how down played it has become. For example when the lyrics go,"Marching forward hypocritic And hypnotic computers.You depend on our protection,Yet you feed us lies from the table cloth."
Then it goes, "everybody's going to the party to have a good time dancing in the desert the desert blowing up the sunshine" which is saying that while everyone is having a good time there are people that are being trained to obey every order and that no one cares about it yet they depend on them. Then it says "why don't presidents fight the war why do we always send the poor?" this show that how presedents all they do is start the war and rid them-selves of any dirty work. Overall this is a very good song.

i remember when i first heard this song. i was taking my grandfathers truck for a sort ok known joy ride. i kept listening to it, and still do every once in a while. though it is a pretty hard hitting song, the lyrics give it a meaningful side that explain and accknowledges some issues forgotten. good choice.
