This song is by System of a Down and appears on the album System of a Down (1998).

Cursed Earth, cursed Earth, cursed Earth, cursed Earth

I'll never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart
All because we all live in the valley of the walls
When they speak, we can peek from the windows of their mouths
To see the land, the women chant as they fly up to the sun

You never think you know why, know
You never think you know why, know
Ever think you know why, know

Books all say different things, while people flap their yellow wings
Trying to soar by being a whore of life and almost everything
The sheep that ran off from the herd may be dead
But now's a bird able to fly, able to die, able to fuck your brother's earth

You never think you know why, know
You never think you know why, know
Ever think you know why, know

On the other side, on the other side, the other side,
Do you ever try to fly, do you ever try to fly?
Have you ever wanted to die, have you ever wanted to die?

Don't ever try to fly, don't ever try to fly,
Don't ever try to fly, unless you leave your body on the other side,
Never try to die, you ever try to die.

You never think you know why, know
You never think you know why, know
You never think you know why, know
Ever think you know why, know
