I'm going to write a story on GDA with the top 10 Green Day lyrics, and I'd like your help.

 

Post your favorite lyric from any Green Day/Network/Foxboro song. It can't be a whole verse. 

 

What are some lines that you've heard and made you think "whoa, that's pretty great."

Armatage Shanks, the opener on Insomniac

 

 

My pick:


"All I want to know

Is a god-damned thing

Not what's in the medicine

All I want to do is

I want to breathe

Batteries are not included

What's the latest way that a man can die

Screaming hallelujah?"

sorry, i've got two picks =) :

 

'it seems so frightening

time passes by like lightening

before you know it you're struck down 

and waste away'

 

and

 

'i always waste my time just wondering

what the next man thinks of me

i'll never do exactly what i want

and i'll sculpt my life for your acceptance

and i feel forgotten 

feel like rotting

do you feel the same?

adolescence just can't make sense 

it's calling my name

i take a look around and all the things i found

i call it blind hatred

if you stop a while and maybe if you smile

you would realize that we're all the same'

Wow, hard choice really. I don't have one favourite, I have these three:

"Rage and love - the story of my life. The Jesus of Suburbia is a lie."

"Why does my life have to be so small, yet death is forever. And does forever have a life to call it's own?"

"Hit the lights and bang your drum and let your flag unfold, 'cause history will prove itself in the halls of justice and lost souls".

You may find out that your self-doubt means nothing was ever there, you can't go forcing something if it's just not right.
