Such a lonely day
And its mine
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Should be banned
It's a day that I can't stand

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Shouldn't...

    Well I'm not going to go against what The TrueAriel said, if daron says its what happened, then its what happened. but i's still like to share my opinion..

    if you've ever seen the video it shows not only daron, serj, John and shavo, but regular people doing things with their daily lives. but in almost every shot, something in the background is on fire, but no one is taking any notice to it. I think the point of this song is that there is so much drama, chaos, and issues in the world, but no one really is taking any notice to it- weather it be the govornment hushing it up, or peoples' fear of getting mixed up in any of the issues and getting themselves hurt, so they choose to ignore things and go on with their normal lives.

    I belive the song may be about a lose of someone close to one of the band members. And how eveyday following that is lonely be cause of the person not being there. And the person is happy to of survied the lose of the person but unavoidably will always fell the lonlyness ever more. Almost as if when he says it's a day he was glad he survived he trying to reassure himself all will be well with the days yet to come.

    Ok, this song has nothing to do with what any of yall hav said. I saw on an interview with daron that they wrote in advance of their hiatus because they knew they were going to break up and decided to write a song about it. That's why they were in seperate tour buses on the video. They've been riding in separate buses for a few years now.

    No one really is picking up on this song and its correlations with addictions? Listen to lyrics and stop reading the lyrics. It's plain as day

    SOAD is and always will be a very political band. Why only 1 song out of many would they change? Its talking about the Armenian Genecide that started in 1915 during and after WWI. He isnt saying "I" personally. he is speaking for the survivors of that horrible time. Think about it. every one of his songs mentions government, scandals, propaganda, wars, and military. plus this song ends on. eginning of "Soldier Side". Its not a personal message as most of you think. Its about another war, politics, and the severity of the disaster, the Armenian Genecide.(800,000-1.2million people murdered in camps and death walks into the Syrian Dessert)

    I know it's about his brother but for me personally it's about the day Jesus died and how the disciples would have felt after watching Jesus die.

    daron said on an interview that his brother almost died in a fire and then he had to spend 2 weeks in a hospital and daron couldnt talk to him those two weeks he felt very lonely thats what the song is about and thats also why in the video you see a lot of things on fire

    All of u who have said that this has got to do with the lose of a close person: you're right. Daron wrote this song for his dead cousin...
    And that fire thing in the video is because the cousin died in a fire...
    It all makes sense, doesn't it?

    This may not be right but I thought it was abour Daron's brother dying in a house fire when they were young. Hence the fire in the video and "It's the day i'm glad I survived"

    I've read that this song was written by daron because his brother died in a fire... that;s the reason why almost everywhere in the video there is fire... and the last phrase it's a day that I'm glad i survived might refers to he didn't died too... I am not sure...

    I know it's not actually the meaning, but i think it's something with hypnotize. Daron is probably talking 'bout a day that something really bad happend. He also wrote hypnotize when he was waiting for his girlfriend in the car. Something happend on a date, daron?

    Not sure about the meaning, im guessing a day that was very hard and he was glad he got though it. But in the video there is a scene with 2 men and one on fire a possible tribute to pink floyd? Just thought I'd add that.

    The song is about Daron's Brother who died in a fire when they were kids. Hence all the fire in the video..

    I feel that no one pesons interpretation is the absolute correct one . As with all artist they try to inspire , relate and hopely touch everyone on a personal level . So that being said the true meaning is in the eye of the beholder.

    Daron has said alot of things about alot of songs. And so far this song he has said its about his girlfriend and about the hiatus. SOAD does this on a lot of songs because they want the fans to find there own meanings in the words. Some people inturpret it as about what the band has said or as 9-11, or many different things. Personaly, i thin its about AIDS

    I was actually searching on yahoo answers to see if Daron Malakian had any siblings and what i found was that when he was younger there house had caught on fire and he had made it out but his brother didn't and that's what the song was written about which explains a lot.

    in the video it showed buildings and/or small structures on fire and some of the lyrics such as "and if you go, i wanna go with you, and if you die, i wanna die with you."
    and "its a day that i'm glad i survived"

    that's just kind of the info that i'm going on, but then again i could be wrong.

    Daron told rolling stones in an interview the song was about the worst day of his life, the day his brother died in a fire, hense the random fires everywhere. Daron had only his brother and when he died he was Linley and had a void in his heart.
