Serj Tankian - Ching Chime Lyrics




Why make time
When no one pays a dime
To remunerate a rhyme
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime
Ch ch cha-ching chime

Creating a crime
To start with melamine
Looking at a mime
The rhymes are all mine
But no one pays no mind
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

In the daytime
Face covered by the grime
Sucking on a lime
When no one pays no mind
Slamming on a rhyme
Over the ching chime
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch ch-ching chime

Superbowl, half time
Anytime is war time
Second season is past time
Gonorrhea, overtime
Fuck that it's bedtime
No more friend of mine
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

I'll fuck your mind
Over the spring time
Degrading in your prime
A thought so asinine
But no one pays no mind
And no one pays a dime
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

Open your eyes don't be this way
Though all your dreams are swept away
The stairs will rise from yesterday
Your tears and fears all melt away

Superbowl, half time
Anytime is war time
Second season is past time
Gonorrhea, overtime
Fuck that it's bedtime
No more friend of mine
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

I'll fuck your mind
Over the spring time
Degrading in your prime
A thought so asinine
But no one pays a dime
And no one pays a dime
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

Open your eyes don't be this way
Though all your dreams are swept away
The stairs will rise from yesterday
Your tears and fears all melt away

The waters will rush but don't dismay
Our smiles will cross the world will stay
The bridge has crossed itself today
Now close your eyes and sway the sway, sway the sway

(Leylia, Leylia, Ley, Ley)

Open your eyes don't be this way
Though all your dreams are swept away
The stairs will rise from yesterday
Your tears and fears all melt away

The waters will rush but don't dismay
Our smiles will cross the world will stay
The bridge has crossed itself today
Now close your eyes and sway the sway, sway the sway

To remunerate a rhyme
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime
Ch ch cha-ching chime

Creating a crime
To start with melamine
Looking at a mime
The rhymes are all mine
But no one pays no mind
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime
Ch-ch cha-ching chime

In the daytime
Face covered by the grime
Sucking on a lime
When no one pays no mind
Slamming on a rhyme
Over the ching chime
Over the ching chime
Ch-ch ch-ching chime

Superbowl, half time
Anytime is war time

    Koty Wilkinson

    Look up live shows with him in it. You'll see at most he wears a hat lol

    Ethan Dunn

    Dabednego I know it's an old comment, my apologies but Serj actually leans more towards Lebanese, and I mean that in the sense of, he has claimed he's from Lebanon and sings many songs supporting them and going against the USA because of what the do in the middle East and to other countries, again just my two sense. Have a good one!

    Realhuman Man

    +Floyd CF Fuck that it's link time!

    Floyd CF

    yes it is!

  29. DJkhali98

    This is good, yeah. but Shame with Wu Tang has better raps from Serj.
    That's just my opinion.

    insane sanity

    what verse does serj rap in in shame?

    insane sanity

    because Serj doesn't have an original verse in Shame.

  30. Josapah Ray

    It's a must to sing along when it strikes my ears, like the need to breath the air.

  31. Philip Löwe

    das dieses lied keine 10 millionen klicks hat

  32. Daniel Nunez

    Serj Is A God 👌👌👌

    Waldus Lacroix

    Celine Anselme

    The lyrics in that part are Arabic if i'm not mistaken and means "stay awake all night"

    Андрей Фомичёв

    Lelia is no more: https://youtu.be/kO7XoTjV0r4?t=21m16s

  41. DOHO

    Speed 1.5 That's how the song must be .

    Jayke Warren

    1.25 is better

    Meta

    Nothing is better, if the music is that way, there is no other way it must be.

  42. Janne Laakso

    Love this song

  43. Jevan Hammett

    Im in a metal band, and I just bought a Mandolin.

    Melvin Jansen

    Little off topic maybe,. i grew up with metal heads,. we were all hating on hip hop and club music and were also wondering why we got beat up so many times,.We were as narrowminded as they were..

    Your story reminds me of when we stopped beeing dumb and opened up to any genre really.
    Music should not be tied to culture,..

    Melvin Jansen

    Maybe not dumb,.. i take that back

    CloudPeopleRecords

    I lived and played metal for about 15 years (among many other styles), and got a mandolin half way through... bluegrass and metal have a great many similarities, or blend nicely, in my opinion.. i now play banjo and mess around on Grandpa's ol' fiddle too. Happy pickin'!

    Dark1 Legend2

    Jevan Hammett sure

  44. teo zorbas

    Open your eyes don't be this way
    Though all your dreams are swept away
    The stairs will rise from yesterday
    Your tears and fears all melt away this song make me happy everyday what song love serj !litlle king of voice!

  45. Holly Williams

    I have seen 3 soad concerts including them at ozfest an had backstages passes met them all and if ya look up where chavo is nowadays ya see hes doin Rap an looks horrible .. .  . Darin still toying with SOB while John Runs his life long dream of a a Comic book store . Thay all swore SOAD would never get back together unless it was all them so before ya go I wish SOad was back figure out the reasons thay are gone and no its not a vacation ...

  46. The scorpion

    Serj Tankian should still be in System Of A Down

    The scorpion

    @loganw1997
    no he isn't that's why he made HIS OWN band

    Jevan Hammett

    @Craig D  He is still in SOAD, they are on hiatus, Serj made his solo career to go along side it, why do you think SOAD still tour with Serj, are you brain dead?

    thefury171

    actually pretty sure SoAD wanted to come back and serj said he doesnt want to, i remember Shavo getting pissed about it 

    Felipe Silva

    he just changed his style.. for a more melodic and passive songs.. soo stay calm dude, they allways can come back, serj just prefer this style || just that

    first last

    He never left.

  47. DENONCIATOR

    very good serje

  48. LemanRuss01

    no actually all want to make a new album since 7 years.... just serj thinks it is cooler to do his solo things. dont ge me wrong i like it a lot it is just not system and well all are pissed and frustrated cause serj doesnt want to commit o it

  49. SiliconBong

    *gives you kitten to keep you company til the new album comes out :)

  50. Eric McIntyre

    yeah i get that dude ok you have not seen the 40 other replies i have gotten? i had a source from a magazine which said they were ok? it was wrong. God this comment is half a year old man.

  51. Mike Olive

    No, Serj said they will. They havent set a time to start, but they should be in studio in 2-3 years.

  52. Mike Olive

    No, they havent started.

  53. Angy Mo

    AWESOME song!

  54. Teklz

    Excuse me?

  55. Lewis White

    god dang i fill realy wierd when i hear this song

  56. xX_TrAiN_fAn_Xx

    No they're not, Serj said so on August 1st. :(

  57. eGeNreK2112

    Not enough drave- I mean Serj..

  58. fatguyeatscheetos

    He probably misinterpreted the fact that they were back together, unfortunately. Somewhat recently Serj said he wasn't feeling a new System album and he wasn't about to force it.

    Shabbar Hassan kazmi

    Funny how its been more than 5 years since they ve said that theres gonna be a new album

  59. PivotMasterRO

    NNNOOOOOOO!

  60. Paulo Santos

    .. Leylaaaaaaa ( 8 ) .....

  61. vHowanes

    WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME:O?
    where did you get this information:D?

  62. Eric McIntyre

    haha no need to apologize, i was pretty excited when i first heard about it too :P

  63. Eric McIntyre

    I read it in a magazine article. It said Serj wanted to make a new album. Many people have told me im wrong about this but this is what i read.

  64. Bart K

    no way! have to check it up right now!

  65. Eric McIntyre

    Im not sure anymore, i read it in an article in a rock magazine, but everyone is telling me different news about them. Lets hope im right though :)

  66. Milica Savovic

    Are you sure??
    Because I just had a mini heart-attack

  67. Linn8966

    Where from do you know that?

  68. Eric McIntyre

    They were making on when i posted that comment but they arent anymore, that was 3 months ago

  69. Eric McIntyre

    They were planning on making one when i posted that comment

  70. Linn8966

    You lie ;(

  71. Robert Stevenson

    No, they're not.

  72. GamerGreed TheAvaricious

    No their not, Shavo said that Serj hasn't wanted to do a new SOAD album ever again, and that they were almost thinking about a new lead singer

  73. Gabriel Pinheiro

    hahah Sim

  74. Eloisa Antero Guisse

    vc é brasileiro né?

  75. Liam Koitah

    Yeah :) at least, but I've been dying for a new System album!

  76. Eric McIntyre

    Oh wow that sucks :( well atleast they will make one in 3-4 years

  77. Liam Koitah

    Serj said this in an interview with artist direct:

    “A new record requires three years. It’s not something I can do right now. When I can commit to a three-year album cycle, I’ll be down to do it.” He also talked about the creative process, saying, “I can’t write a forced record. It’s like romancing someone at a time you don’t want to be romantic. It’s not even a choice.”

  78. Eric McIntyre

    When did he say that? Cause they said it would be released in 2013 so they still have a lot of time even if serj cant right now

  79. Liam Koitah

    Serj said he can't make a new System Of A Down album now D:

  80. Luca

    Class: Comedy?

  86. Eric McIntyre

    im not sure what its going to be called but its supposed to come out some time this year.

  87. theSaCredAmP
