(Sorry if this has been made already... I'm somewhat new to this)

This thread is for anyone and everyone to post their favorite quotes or lyrics from Green Day songs :D

Just state the quote or lyrics, and please say who said it or what song it's from.

Some of my favorite lyrics are:

"This city's burning, it's not my burden" (Letterbomb)
"It says, 'Home is where your heart is,' but what a shame, cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same. It's beating out of time." (Jesus of Suburbia)
"I feel lonely for all the losers that will never take the time to say what's really on their mind. Instead, they just hide away." (When It's Time)

My favorite quote:
"I never thought that being obnoxious would get me where I am now." -Billie Joe Armstrong

Hope you guys enjoy this!!! ;)

I'm branded; Maladjusted.
Never trusted anyone, let alone myself.
I must insist on being a pessimist.
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind.

i love all quotes and lyrics :lol:
but here are some of my faves:

Lyrics:
Home is where your heart is, but what a shame, cos everyone's heart doesn't beat the same, it's beating out of time.
Did you stand to close to the fire?...like a lier looking for forgiveness?...like a liar looking for forgiveness...from a stone.
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go.

Quotes:
BJA:
"Y'know"
"I don't want to limit myself musically. It would be really limiting if we'd neglect something we really want to do, like explore other styles of music."
"Music - that's been my education. There's not a day that goes by that I take it for granted. "
"School is practice for the future, practice makes perfect and nobody's perfect - so why practice?"
“We don't really have a fair system, our social system doesn't work if you're poor in the US you're dirt poor and the distribution of wealth is more than uneven. If you're poor and you get sick you have no health insurance, no financial security, nothing. if that could be changed I wouldn't mind paying more tax, but I mind my taxes being spent on wars!”
Mike:
"all my religious beliefs are based on Star Wars!"
"Putting that song on our record was the the most punk thing we could do." (on the song Good Riddance-Time of Your Life)
"I have a Rolex collection and a diamond collection. I`d like to find the biggest diamond I could find and eat it and pick it out of my shit the next day."
"I always said the world was a better place because of Joey Ramone."

Tre:
"I can suck my own."
"No man can eat 50 eggs!!"

"I think it's alright that i do what i like, 'cuz that's the way i want to live."

also, i have these arm tattoos- i know i've talked about them before... they are not outwardly green day tattoos but are somewhat green day inspired. One is very happy and joyful, one is very dark and sad. The happy one is called "To live and not to breathe is to die in tragedy". The sad one is called "here comes the rain again, falling from the stars." It's a depression inspired thing (which sounds somewhat selfish and babyish or whatever, but what the fuck, that's been my life. I need something to remind me of good things when i'm sad, and i need something to remind me to always appreciate the good things because sad times could be right around the corner."

I was going to post something else but i couldn't remember it so i went to the quotes page to try and look it up, instead i got distracted by the quote about Tre being able to tie his foreskin in a knot and now i can't stop laughing. So much for that! (i think that is my new favorite, btw.)

Lyrics:
-Gotta make a plan gotta do what's right, can't run around in circles if you wanna build a life but I don't wanna make a plan for a day far away while I'm young and while I'm able all I wanna do is..

- She's an extraordinary girl, in an ordinary world and she can't seem to get a way
- She sees the mirror of herself, an image she wants to sell, to anyone willing to buy

- Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go



Quotes:

Billie:
- "If someone falls down please pick them back up. Just because there's not a fuckin' camera in your face doesn't mean you don't have to lookout for each other."

- "Do you wanna have sex and get married?"

Mike:
- "If you start planning too far ahead, the next thing you know you forget you're living today"

Tre:
- "I used to drink beer and smoke pot before I played. Now I drink tequila and smoke pot. So it's a little different"

"I wish people would turn off their computers, go outside, talk to people, touch people, lick people, enjoy each other's company and smell each other on the rump"

"I declare I don't care no more" "Throw my emotions in the grave, hell who needs them anyway"

I'm such a procrastinator at times. I can always seem to relate to these lyrics.

"There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy
There's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy
He makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting
Someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting"

These are all so awesome! It's nice to look through here and see all these quotes, because they make me smile!! :D

I was listening to Reject today and realized that this quote fits me perfectly right now:
"Who the hell are you to tell me what I am and what's my master plan? What makes you think that it includes you?"
And then also from Reject
"What's the difference between you and me? I do what I want, and you do what you're told. So listen up and shut the hell up. It ain't no big deal"

favorite lyric "Looking back what I have done, There's lots more life to live, At times I feel overwhelmed ,I question what I can give ,But I don't let it get me down
Or cause me too much sorrow ,There's no doubt about who I am ,I always have tomorrow" (I was there)

"Never trusted anyone, let alone myself, I must insist on being a pessimist. I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind." (Armatage Shanks)

"So go do what you like, make sure you do it wise. You can't go forcing something if it's just not right." (When I Come Around)

"'Home is where your heart is', but what a shame, 'cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same." (Jesus Of Suburbia)


These are probably my favorite lyrics, but it's hard to choose only a few of their lyrics, they're all so awesome.

Oh, and also lately I feel I can relate to this: "There's a boy who fogs his world and now he's getting lazy, there's no motivation and frustration makes him crazy, he makes a plan to take a stand but always ends up sitting, someone help him up or he's gonna end up quitting"

Pretty much any lyrics from J.A.R. are great.
(plus the Awesome As Fuck version was recorded at the concert I went to)
