The song is about how divided America is when it comes to the topic of war "Generation that didn't agree,". And "Eloquence belongs to the conquerer," is talking negatively about America's attitude towards war. Again nothing about children getting raped. I think songs especially by groups like System of a Down have multiple meanings.

Song Details

But I think one meaning you can get from this is that it is referring to the sad cycle where a country namely the U. Is founded on good principles and ideals but these ideas are not passed down to the next generation effectively. Hence in a few generations the country no longer even resembles the way it was originally and the older generation and the statue of liberty that has stood for American ideas will watch with sadness as the country turns on it's head and forgets everything it once stood for and becomes like the French revolution or the people hand over their rights to the government and it turns into a tyrannical all powerful government.

I think it means that in the history books of tomorrow they will tell how no one in this generation agreed and went to war and the media tries to justify the wars "justified candy brandy for the nerves" and all the good stuff should come to the one who kills all the other countries "eloquence belongs to the conqueror". First off, allow to say to those of you not used to my posts, this is gonna be very long, just a heads up. This song says what it says in very round about ways. Allow me to analyze each line for the allusions and inferences they make before attempting to understand what the entire line is saying.

Conquest victory over another [goes] to the lover of conquest?

Of victory? And your love [of the] fire destruction Permanence of events unfolding in the absolute ness of reality. Paraphrased: Victory will go to those who wish to take it — those who wish dominance, and the permanence of their actions is absolute we cannot rewrite history. What I believe he is saying is that people can conquer others if they so desire such dominance, and that conquest of other people once it has happened is permanent not in that the people will always be conquered, but they always will have been conquered. The point of saying that people will conquer others is that he says these people still make a choice to conquer others, regardless if they say it is a means to an end, or the ends, the physical reality of someone conquering and someone being conquered still exists.

The previous three lines were much vaguer. This line says exactly what it means. To forgive is a sacrifice you make. This seems slightly out of place in the rest of the song, so allow me to return later as more of the purpose of the song is unfolded. Yet, it is very rarely mentioned anywhere but an in-depth US history class here in the US anyway. In fact, when it is mentioned, mostly it is told as a story of the citizens of Texas and California and New Mex.

Etc wanting horribly to be freed from Mexico. The fact of the matter is that the only residents of Texas who wanted to join the US were US citizens who had migrated to Texas some with the sole purpose of establishing a population in Texas which wanted to join the US. Yet, we won the war, and we write the text books. There are many, many examples from history where a war is remembered not as it happened, but as the victors of the war told the story see WWI.

Also, imagine the text books the Nazis would have written about the holocaust if they had won the war. This seems to further this point. He still seems to be referring to any war any typical tragedy or any conflict amongst humans. To summarize: History is rewritten in any typical event of human suffering, due namely to the fact that the victors of such a suffering rewrite the history of it.

Brandy for the nerves, Justified [things which bring me happiness]! Brandy [to numb] the nerves the mind. Realigned: Justified: Candy Brandy for the nerves These two lines say pretty much the same thing. We justify things that make us happy or numb our minds. Which is interesting, because it could be argued that things that make us happy do just that — numb our minds. It would be safe to say the two are added just for emphasis, and say pretty much the same thing. However, what does this have to do with the rest of the song?

Lets reconsider now what all has been said. The actions of people who conquer others remain permanent through history; to forgive is the ultimate sacrifice; history is rewritten favorably to by the conquerors; and we justify that which numbs our mind.

Ah ha! It would be fair to say that from the perspective of the conquerors, remembering history differently where you were the nice guy, not that bad guy helps to deal with any guilt of the actions of conquering someone. Well shit, this line has a ton to do with the previous one, it makes very much sense now right next to the one before it.

Now we delve further down the rabbit hole: You and me will all go down in history, With a sad Statue of Liberty, And a Generation that didn't agree. It seems to refer to the almost schizophrenic character of the American public at the moment two minds — one body , but also the larger fissure between humanity — at this moment of the greatest contact between humans ever, it is also the moment where our differences are in our faces the most. Its one thing for someone to worship a different god when the are a 2 months boat ride away from me, but it is an entirely different thing when they are two clicks of a mouse away.

To the entire stanza now: The first time I listened to this, it sounded like most other interpretations have claimed. Playlist 3.

Conquest to the lover And your love to the fire Permanence unfolding in the absolute Forgiveness is the ultimate sacrifice Eloquence belongs to the conqueror The pictures of time and space are rearranged In this little piece of typical tragedy Justified candy Brandy for the nerves Eloquence belongs to the conqueror.

System of a Down - Sad Statue Lyrics | SongMeanings

However, the protests were stopped. Many people were killed by soldiers and tanks. And the statue was destroyed. Hence the lyrics: "You and me will all go down in history, With a sad Statue of Liberty, And a Generation that didn't agree. And how their love for democracy was thrown to the fire and destroyed.

But I believe it refers to how some of the soldiers enjoyed hurting and shooting protesters and later said that their actions were justified. They denied the attack on the protesters as unjustified and said it was necessary. Feel free to provide comments, criticisms, or concerns. This song is obviously very political, not about children being raped what the hell made come to that conclusion? The song is about how divided America is when it comes to the topic of war "Generation that didn't agree,".
