I love this song. I don't how some people don't... even Billie Joe himself, who said he doesn't want to play it live again
I'm especially interested on the 2nd verse, which doesn't seem to have anything to do with the drugs mentioned before. It doesn't talk about pretty things, but it's the truth about today -or always, to me. "I need to find a place to hide, you never know what could be waiting outside..." and all the "we are our own worst enemy" thing, which is also accurate. The gloomy melody, but my favorite part is the end; sounds like a terrifying ending of something; so desperate but yet powerful.
I'm super glad it made it to the album! And I'd love to hear it live
