Discuss anything related to this song here.


I like it a lot. I think this one and Hearts Collide should have been in the album. They're much better than some of the songs that are there, in my opinion.

Hmm, I think the album is pretty perfect as is, I don't think the B-sides should be on it.

That said, I do like the song, especially this verse:

"And I'm losing track of time
In the corners of my mind
And I'm living out my private suicide"

It's very reminiscent of my life.

It's currently my fav song wub.gif
I especially love the line
"I lost myself in the space between heaven and hell".
It reminds me of American Idiot, with the drums.

I didn't like it first but it grew on me and now I like it a lot more than some songs on 21st CB.

I listened to this & Hearts Collide once and I gotta say they just didn't stick in my head, nor did I find them that good. Maybe another listen will change my mind but meh.

I like Hearts Collide more but this song shows all the old Dookie lovers and AI haters than they still got it. Good song though it gets me excited.

Should have definitely been on the album. I'm sure a song like Last of the American Girls could've made some room.

I think this song is soooooooooo AMAZING! It reminds me of Green Day's older stuff, but with that said it doesn't really matter because I love any style that Green Day does (and I love the so-called "newer Green Day" just the same biggrin.gif) anyway i like it better than Hearts Collide.

That's the most sensible thing I've heard all day....


Well I wouldn't say it's better than Peacemaker or 21st Century Breakdown biggrin.gif


Seriously disappointed this didn't make it onto the album though, it would have gone hand in hand melodically with American Eulogy and Horseshoes & Handgrenades. I think it's far more satisfying than Know Your Enemy, which should have been the real B side ph34r.gif


Lights Out is one of my all time favourite Green Day songs now, it's definitely in the top five...and that's a really, really big deal.

Great drum beginning and nice bass solo thumbsup.gif I didnīt really like this song at the beginning but it definitely grew on me. Itīs a good b-side but I couldnīt imagine this song on an album unless itīs a b-side album like Shenanigans.

I think it'classic Green Day material right there. If all the songs on Insomniac weren't so similar then it'd slot in perfectly laugh.gif
