Honking Antelope Lyrics
Why dont you go photograph
Everything that ever passed in time,
Indigenous traces, tribal chiefs,
Vanishing hereditary lines,
Poets gone wild on the muse
Prophets all destroying the Tao,
When you see that honking...
1TOP RATED#1 top rated interpretation:
As usual you have to decipher some to decode what Serj wants to say, in this case literally, the letters in the title is an anagram, and if you decipher it you will see "Napoleon the king".
My interpretation is that we as humans will kill each-other trough wars because of their egos (as Napoleon had quite a big ego).
Some people look at other people with different backgrounds as lesser humans and destroy their cultures, and we continue doing this to this day, we haven't changed one bit in the over 200years since Napoleon, so when we see our leaders in this time we see the Honking Antelopes, i.e. "Napoleon the king" of our time doing their snake dance before striking out and killing or strangling their victims.
Nature in some way will survive our destructive behavior, but we wont.

I think that honking antelope is not an antelope but the likeness of. Its got big round eyes. And though its a male it has breast and it has jet black skin like onyx. And there is smoke coming off of him because he had been standing in the sun as a shell around him forms ,because without it it would be impossible for anyone to stand before him,the light is so powerful it will kill you. The secret dance of snakes is a rod that always seems to be in motion,and has the power of creation. Its one of two symbols used in medicine today. Its just a thought. That's what I always think when I hear the song.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
