Your Favorite and Most Inspiring Green Day Lyrics/Quotes

131 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

"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)

Fuck off and die kinda comes to mind. The whole concept of telling some one to their face, that I fucking want you gone. I like that.

My favorite lyric, I agree with "Home is where the heart is but what a shame 'cause everyones heart doesn't beat the same, it's beating out of time" from JOS. That lyric is so true. Billie Joe Armstrong, you are one amazing poet

That's one of my all time favorites!

"'Trust' is a dirty word that comes only from such a liar but "respect" is something I will earn if you have faith" (Church On Sunday) has always been one of my favourites. There are a lot of others that are amazing though :)

The JOS lyric that everyone love : "It says 'Home is where your heart is but what a shame cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same"

"What the hell's your name? What's your pleasure, what is your pain? Do you dream too much? Do you think what you need is a crutch?" from Homecoming. Maybe my fave of all times.

"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." From JAR.

"Music to me is the air that I breathe, it's the blood that pumps thorugh my veins that keeps me alive. I am Green Day." Billie Joe Armstrong

The rage and love, story of my life...the Jesus of Suburbia is a lie.

Will she ever find her way? I'm too damn young to be too late, but am I?

She, she's figured out all her doubts were someone else's point of view.

Dumbstruck, color me stupid, good luck, you're gonna need it where I'm going if I get there at all.
