Aerials Lyrics

Life is a waterfall,
We're one in the river,
And one again after the fall.

Swimming through the void
We hear the word,
We lose ourselves,
But we find it all?

Cause we are the ones that want to play,
Always want to go,
But you never...

    yeah, when daron said the song is about nothing, he said it when they went to the "big day out" in Australia.

    Stephenisgreat is right, Daron did say this song was about nothing during a live show they were playing. Go search for the song live and download it and you will eventually find it and hear him say it.

    This song is basically about drugs... Aerials in the sky is a person hallucinating, seeing distorted images in the sky. It frees your life from reality and the shit that comes with it in turn it is the eternal prize to know that drugs can free you and that it allows you to perceive viewpoints in different philosophical ways. This song is pretty much about a drug experience and a persons feelings while they are high.

    do you realise that this is some two-bit website, a two-bit song and a two-bit subject. If you think this song is about politics do something about it. If you think it's about aliens go look for them and if you think you have a life turn off your PC and go do something fun.

    I think System made it very clear when they won't tell us. Its for US to decide, they've all said that. I mean Kill Rock and Roll was written because Daron killed a rabbit.
    what I get out of this is the people who are different from society being needled into joining society, a mass killing of different subcultures.

    The first interpretaion is right this song does have meaning SOAD may have not aimed for that but there clearly is it shows clear as day and probably one of the easiest songs to interpret.

    This is my interpretation. I didn't have a log on when I entered it anonymously above. Just wanted to take credit for it.
    My interpretation, which, probably is not what system meant but may apply, is that everyone picks a side based on political party and not on the issues. That people listen to these talk show hosts blindly and agree them. Aerials, basically radio antennas. Media delivers and you believe without any of your own research. 'You free your mind.' from what media has implanted when you think for your self. As far as not having a meaning, everything has meaning. And if it doesn't there's nothing wrong with giving it meaning.

    People have lied about all sorts of things to get the press off them. Maybe Serj was lying because of that. Besides, that is MY interp of the song, not necessarily the right one.

    Nope, you are all wrong, this song is about aliens. Serj said it himself.

    There's other way of saying that someone is wrong instead of just calling them an idiot. So my interpretation of stephen is that he's an idiot... and I said it so it must be true.
