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!

Why does my life have to be so small? Yet death is forever..
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer 'cause you only know as much as I know,
Unless you've been there once - well I hardly think so.

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.

Lyrics: Me personality it's, "Waiting" off "Warning". I really think that song tells you that, some times even if you put the work into something, it doesn't work out but to tell the rest of the word, "Good Luck, you're gonna need it. Where I'm going if I get there at all."

Another would be, "See the Light" off, "21st Century Breakdown" espically the chorus,

"I just want to see the light
i don't want to lose my sight
I just want to see the light
I need to know what's worth the fight"


Quotes:
"Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one." - Mike Dirnt
"To do something that you feel in your heart that's great, you need to make a lot of mistakes. Anything that's successful is a series of mistakes" - Billie Joe Armstrong
"If you start planning too far ahead, the next thing you know you forget you're living today" - Mike Dirnt
(When asked who the most inspirational band is to them at the moment) “Us, duh.” - Tré Cool

This is my favorite Tre quote for some reason... :lol:




“I’m a fucking pussy when I get tattooed. There’s an anchor on my wrist. I was in Oakland getting it and I was like, ‘Oh, let me get some air, take a break.’ I went outside and just passed out on the fucking sidewalk, on Broadway, in Oakland. This homeless dude runs up: ‘Yeah, he’s gone into shock. He needs a coke or something. Give him some sugar.’ I passed all the way out.” - Tre Cool, Inked Magazine.

My favorite lyric:

It's something I remind myself of when I concern myself too much with what other people think of me to the point of doubting myself. In fact, I just had it tattooed on my arm on Sunday, so now I have a visual to remind me.
