Lyrics for Sugar by System Of A Down:

Chorus: Serj Tankian & Daron Malakian
The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
Who can believe you? Who can believe you?
Let your mother pray
Sugar, sugar

Verse 1: Serj Tankian & Daron Malakian
I'm not there all the time, you know
Some people, some people, some people call it insane
Yeah, they call it insane (Sugar)
I play Russian Roulette every day, a man's sport
With the bullet called life
Yeah, mama called life (Sugar)
Yeah and every time I try to go where I really want to be
It's already where I am
'Cause I'm already there

Chorus: Serj Tankian & Daron Malakian
The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
Who could believe you? Who could believe you?
Let your mother pray
Sugar

Verse 2: Serj Tankian & Daron Malakian
I got a gun the other day from Sako
It's cute, it's small, fits right in my pocket
Yeah, right in my pocket (Sugar)
My girl, you know, she lashes out at me sometimes
And I just fucking kick her
And then, ooh baby, she's okay (Sugar)
People are always chasing me down
Tryna push my face to the ground
Where all they do is suck out my motherfucking brains
My brains (Sugar)

Chorus: Serj Tankian
The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
Who can believe you? Who can believe you?
Let your mother pray

Outro: Serj Tankian
I sit in my desolate room
No lights, no music
Just anger, I killed everyone
I'm away forever, but I'm feeling better
How do I feel? What do I say?
Fuck you, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
Fuck you, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say?
In the end, it all goes away
In the end, it all goes away
In the end, it all goes away
In the end, it all goes away
In the end, it all goes away

Song Facts

Like many System of a Down songs, “Sugar” doesn’t have a specific meaning. The term “sugar” is a well-known euphemism for cocaine, which has even worse addictive effects than sugar itself, leading the song to be about the consequences of drug abuse.

Also, Serj Tankian could be comparing the drug obsession with America’s obsession with sugar. In the music video, a pie flashes on the screen w the words “Aspartame Kills,” a cancerous sweetener.

Some people also claim that the song talks about abuse, violence, media, or the government.
