"There is a war that's inside my head

that questions the results and lies.

I'm breaking my back 'till I'm better off dead

When enough 'aint enough to survive."

 

That's from the demo version of 21st Century Breakdown. For me it perfectly captures the futility of the current political and economic situation that's been going on in the United States lately. I have no idea why it didn't make it into the finished version, those are inspired lyrics.

I don't think those are the correct lyrics.

"I couldn't find a reason why I couldn't be near her" was especially meaningful to me when this girl called it quits for no particular reason. Where's all my single ladies at on the GDC? ;)

I've got three:

"I'm too tired to be bored, I'm too bored to be tired"

 

"The time has come and it's going nowhere

 nobody ever said that life was fair now"

 

"So make the best of this test and don't ask why,

 it's not a question, but a lesson learned in time"

There are so many great lyrics but the first thing that came into my mind was:

 

No culture's worth a stream of piss
Or a bullet in my face
To hell with unity
Separation's gonna kill us all

 

Green Day's lyrics mean so much to me. Sometimes I get really emotional just from reading the lyrics. Other great lyrics:

 

The world owes me so fuck you.

 

Is there any cure for this disease someone called love.

 

My own worst friend, my own closest enemy.

 

Looking out of my windo for someone who's passing by, no one knows I'm locked in here and all I do is cry.

 

It's not over till your underground.

 

I don't want to stop but I guess that was already too much ;)

Fuck it, I'm posting up the whole lyrics to "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?":

 

"A thought burst in my head and I need to tell you

It's news that I for thought
Was it just a dream that happened long ago?
I think that I just forgot
 
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad
 
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
 
I shuffle through my mind
To see if I can find
The words I left behind
Was it just a dream that happened long ago?
Oh well...
Never mind.
 
Well it hasn't been the first time
And it sure does drive me mad"
 
This is among the only songs that I'll ever tell myself "Damn, I wish I wrote that song." It's almost as if the song was written for me because I could relate to it in so many ways and the way I interpret the lyrics... it just speaks to me so loud and clear. So many thoughts burst in my head that I need to tell a certain someone. And yes, most of it just feels like a dream that happened long ago and I don't want to forget. It sure does drive me mad sometimes...
 
Edit: I know it couldn't be a whole verse. xD
