Deer Dance Lyrics

Circumventing circuses
Lamenting in protest
To visible police
Presence sponsored fear
Batallions of riot police
With rubber bullet kisses
Baton courtesy
Service with a smile
Beyond the staples center you can see america
With it’s tired...

    I think it's about that thing that went down in london, where therer was a big riot and the riot police got involved and they were beating ppl with their batons.

    Your missing the whole point it's about how the US pushes around other weaker 3rd world countries and while it citizens don't agree the goverment just disperses them with "less lethal weapons".

    About what the guy above me said, when it says beyond the staples center you can see america I think it meant that if you look closer at society, then you see the problems that it has, such as policemen "pushing little children with thier fully automatics, they like to push the weak around." Its saying that we are not perfect and that our beaty as a country is only skin deep, but beneath that we have serious problems.

    This song has nothing to do with Rage Against the Machine.
    Its about how the government is bullying around the citizens.

    I think you are very right, but I am pretty sure System of a Down had a free concert where the riot police got involved and assulted many people who attended, most of whom were from age 16-20 years old, hence the 'Pushing little children, with their fully automatics' line.

    I may be wrong but if I'm not mistaken this song is actually in reference to a Rage Against the Machine show that was held outside of the 2000 Democratic Convention in Los Angeles. The show ended in a riot with the police firing tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowd.

    I really haven't gone deep into this song to figure out what it's about, but ever since the first time I heard it I picture the guy coming after Elian Gonzalez hidding in the closet with his automatics weapon drawn. "Pushing little children with their fully automatics"
