We fought your wars with all our hearts,
You sent us back in body parts,
You took our wills with the truth you stole,
We offer prayers for your long lost soul.

The remainder is,
An unjustifiable, egotistical, power struggle,
At the...

    From what I deduce, these lyrics are about wars In America and the affects of these wars on the soldiers, the soldiers families as well as the country itself. In the song, Serj sings "we fought your war with all our hearts, you sent us back in body parts" implying that the government and country couldn't possibly care whether soldiers returned from the war or not or the conditions of war, as long as the wars were fought on their behalf.

    I think its about America not giving a fuck on what happens to this world. Meaning America gets us into wars half cocked and not giving to shits on the effect it has to the rest of the world. That said, I think what i just said reflects America perfectly. Good song.

    It explains how the armenians fought the way they were told
    the turks being armed by us with weapons. Saying that the war was a just cause. Simple addition . In the name of our religion theirs was called the wrong one. The reasons why armenians fought in our wars were because the overwelming moral majority pointed in the direction that to them led to to an unjustified genocide. Just serj trying to justify why they dont trust america anymore.

    A.D.D. stands for "American Dream Denial." The first part of the song says, "We fought your wars with all our hearts, you sent us back in body parts, you took our wills with the truth you stole..." This song is somewhat misleading, but it's about the government sending men to war and destroying their future. In the song's chorus, Serj Tankian states that we aren't putting up with this anymore, "we don't give a **** about your world." This phase is repeated 12 times throughout the song, and it is obvious that this is Tankian's main point in the song: We don't care about your (the government) world (or your objectives; we don't care what you want.) We are no longer fighting for your cause. Serj makes a strong point in this song. Awesome song!
