American Idiot
Verse 1

Don't want to be an American idiot
Don't want a nation under the new mania
Can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America

Chorus

Welcome to the new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be ok
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the one meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Verse 2

Well maybe i'm the faggot America
I'm not part of the redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia


Chorus

Verse 3

Don't want to be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information age of hysteria
Calling out to idiot America

Jesus of Suburbia
(full version)


this song has 5 parts in the song so im gunna write it all together cuz i know its
a pain to look for all the songs in the one song.. enjoy and if any problems IM me
on dufustardation and brandnewibanez

(part one) jesus of suburbia

Im the son of rage and love
the jesus of suburbia
from the bible of "none of the above"
on a steady diet or soda pop and ritalin
no one ever died for my sins in hell
as far and i can tell
at least the ones i got away with
but theres nothing wrong
this is how im supposed to be
in the land of make belive
that dont belive in me
get my television fix sitting on my crucifix
the living room in my private womb
while the moms and Brads are away
to fall in love and fall in deist
to alcohol and cigerettes and Mary Jane
To keep me insane and doing someone elses cocaine

CITY OF THE DAMNED (part two)


at the center of the earth
in the parking lot of a seven - eleven where i was taught
the motto was just a lie
it says home is where the heart is
but its a shame
because everyone's heart dosent beat the same
we're beating out of time
city of the dead
at the end of another lost highway
sings misleading to nowhere- City Of The Damned
lost children with dirty faces today
no one really seems to care
i read the grafiti in the bathroom stall
like the holy scriptures in a shopping mall
and so it seemed to confess it didnt say much
but it only confirmed that
at the center of the earth is the end of the world
and i could really care less


I DONT CARE (part three)

i dont care if you dont
i dont care if you dont
i dont care if you dont care
(x 5)
everyone is so full of shit
born and raised my hypocrits
hearts and recycled but never saved
from the cradle to the grave
we are the kids of war and peace from anahiem to the middle east
we are the stories and disciples of the jesus of suburbia
land of make belive
and it dont belive in me
I DONT CARE!

DEARLY BELOVED (part four)

dearly beloved, are you listening?
I cant remember a word that you were saying
are we demented? or am i disturbed?
the space that's in between insane and insecure
oh therapy, can you please fill the void?
am i retarded?
and am i just overjoyed?
nobody's perfect and i stand accused
for lack of a better word and that's my best excuse


TALES OF ANOTHER BROKEN HOME (part five)

To live and not to breathe
is to die in tragedy
to run, to run away to find what to belive
and i leave behind this hurricane of fucking lies
i lost my faith to this, this town that dont exist
so i run, i run away
to the light of masochists
and i leave behind this hurricane of fucking lies
and i walked this line a million and one fucking times
but not this time
i dont feel any shame, i wont apologize
when there aint' nowhere you can go
running away from pain when you've been victimized

tales from another broken homeback to top
Holiday
Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an armageddon flame (hey!)
The shame, the ones who died without a name
Hear the dogs howlin' out of key
To a hymn called "Faith and Misery"
And bleed, the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest or our lives
On holiday

Hear the drum poundin' out of time
Another protestor has crossed the line
To find, the money's on the other side
Can I get another amen? (Amen!)
There's a flag wrapped around a score of men
A gag, a plastic bag on a monument

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest or our lives
On holiday

The representative from California has the floor

Zeig Heil to the president gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel Towers
Who criticize your government
"Bang bang" goes the broken glass and
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trials by fire, setting fire
Is not the way that's meant for me!

Just cause...Just cause because we're outlaws, yeah!...

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest or our lives
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest or our lives
This is our lives on holiday...

Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Verse:
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know were it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
I walk alone I walk alone
I walk alone and I walk a-

Chorus:
My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Till then I'll walk alone

Ah..ah..

Verse:
I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone
Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone
I walk alone I walk alone
I walk alone and I walk a-

Chorus:
My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Till then I'll walk alone

Ah..ah..

I walk alone and I walk a-

(Guitar Solo)

Verse:
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Were the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a-

Chorus:
My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me

Are We the Waiting
Here's another Green Day lyric. If yoy don't like it, suck it up.

Green Day
Are we the Waiting


Starry nights
City lights
Coming down over me
Skyscrapers
And stargazers in my head
Are we we are
Are we we are the waiting unknown?
This dirty town
Was burning down in my dreams
Lost and found
City bound in my dreams

And Screaming-
Are we we are-
Are we we are the Waiting?
And Screaming-
Are we we are-
Are we we are the Waiting?

Forget-me-nots
And second thoughts
Live in isolation
Heads or tails
And fairytales in my mind
Are we we are
Are we we are the waiting unknown?
The rage and love
The story of my life
The Jesus of Suburbia is a lie

And Screaming-
Are we we are-
Are we we are the Waiting?
And Screaming-are we we are-
Are we we are the Waiting Unknown? (x... uh... a couple of times)

Heís insubordinate
Coming at you on the count of 1,2Ö.

Verse 1

My name is Jimmy and you better not wear it out,
Suicide commando that your momma talked about.
King of the 40 thieves and Iím here to represent
The needle in the vein of the establishment



Chorus

Iím the patron saint of the denial
With an angel face and a taste for suicidal



Verse 2

Cigarettes and ramen and a little bag of dope
I am the son of a bitch and Edgar Allan Poe
Raised in the city under a halo of lights
The product of war and fear that weíve been victimized.

With an angel face and a taste for suicidal



ARE YOU TALKING TO ME???

Give Me Novacaine
Take away the sensation inside
Bitter sweet migraine in my head
Its like a throbbing tooth ache of the mind
I can't take this feeling anymore

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
The sensations overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
and everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing
So give me Novacaine

Out of body and out of mind
Kiss the demons out of my dreams
I get the funny feeling, that?s alright
Jimmy says it's better than here,
I?ll tell you why

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
The sensations overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
and everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing,
So give me Novacaine

Oh Novacaine

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
The sensations overwhelming
Give me a long kiss goodnight
and everything will be alright
Tell me Jimmy I won't feel a thing,
So give me Novacaineback to top
She's a Rebel
Ok , why can'y anyone get this right , it's so easy to get the lyrics for this song ,
i mean , he sings it so clearly, *sigh* , here you go.

Chorus

She's a rebel
She's a saint
She's the salt of the earth and she's dangerous
She's a rebel
Vigilante
Missing link on the brink of destruction

verse 1

From chicago
to toronto
she's the one they call old whatsername
she's the symbol
of resistance
and she's holding on my heart like a hand grenade

verse 2

Is she thinking
what im thinking?
is she the mother of all bombs?
gonna detonate
Is she trouble?
like im trouble?
make it a double twist of fate or a melody that

Bridge

She sings the revolution
the dawning of our lives
she brings this liberation
that i just can't define
nothing comes to mind

Outro

She's a rebel
she's a rebel
she's a rebel
and she's dangerous
She's a rebel
she's a rebel
she's a rebel
and she's dangerous



By the way , people put that " she sings....." as the chorus , it's not , it's the bridge...it's all right.

Extraordinary Girl
She's
An Extraordinary girl
In an ordinary world
And she can't seem to get away

He
Lacks the courage in his mind
Like a child left behind
Like a pet left in the rain

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days she feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She sees the mirror of herself
And image she wants to sell
To anyone willing to buy

He steals the image in her kiss
From her heart's apocalypse
From the one called whatsername

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days she feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days she feels like dying
Some days it's not worth trying
Now that they've pulled the fun in
She gets so sick of crying

She's

Letterbomb
Tabbed For: Singing!

E-mail: ant_reeves@hotmai

These lyrics are 100% accurate! This is the letter whatsername sends to jesus
to tell him she's leaving the city because it's getting to much for her

................................................................

Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you
Having fun................

Where have all the bastards gone?
The underbelly stacks up Ten high
The dummy failed the crash test,
Now colecting unemployment checks
like a flunkie only along for the ride

Where have all the riots gone,
As the city's motto gets pulverised?
"Whats in love is now in debt"
On your birth certificate
So strike the fucking match to light this fuse!

The town bishop is an extortionist
And he don't even know that you exist
Standing still when it's go or die,
You better run for your fucking life!

It's not over till you're underground
It's not over before it's too late
This city's burning
It's not my burden
Ti's not over before it's too late
There's nothing left to analyze

Where will all the martyrs go when the virus cures itself?
And where will we go when it's too late?

YOU'RE NOT THE JESUS OF SUBURBIA!
THE ST. JIMMY IS A FIGMENT OF...
YOUR FATHERS RAGE AND YOUR MOTHERS LOVE
MADE ME THE IDIOT AMERICA

It's not over till you're underground
It's not over before it's too late
This city's burning
It's not my burden
It's not over before it's too late

She said "I can't take this place,
I'm leaving it behind."
She said "I can't take this town,
I'm leaving you tonight."back to top
Wake Me Up When September Ends
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars

Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost

Wake me up when Septmber ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when Septmber ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when spring began

Wake me up when septmber ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars

Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost

Wake me up when septmber ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when Septmber ends

Like my father's come to pass
Twenty years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September endsback to top
Homecoming
Part 1: The death of St. Jimmy]

My heart is beating from me
I am standing all alone
Please call me only if you are coming home
Waste another year flies by
Waste a night or two
You taught me how to live
In the streets of shame
Where you've lost your dreams in the rain
There's no signs of hope
The stems and seeds of the last of the dope
There's a glow of light
The St. Jimmy is the spark in the night
Bearing gifts and trust
The fixture in the city of lust
What the hell's your name?
What's your pleasure and whats your pain?
Do you dream to much?
Do you think what you need is a crutch?
In the crowd of pain. St. Jimmy comes without any shame
He says ?we're fucked up?
But we're not the same
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame

Jimmy died today

He blew his brains out into the bay
In the state of mind it's my own private suicide

[Part 2: East 12th St.]

Well nobody cares
Well nobody cares
Does anyone care if nobody cares?
[x2]

Jesus filling out paperwork now
At the facility on east 12th st.
He's not listened to a word now
He's in his own world
And he's daydreaming

He'd rather be doing something else now,
Like cigarettes and coffee with the underbelly,
His life's on the line with anxiety now,
And she had enough,
And he had plenty

Somebody get me out of here
Anybody get me out of here
Somebody get me out of here
Get me the fuck right out of here

So far away
I don't want to stay
Get me out of here right now
I just wanna be free
Is there a possibility?
Get me out of here right now
This life like aint for me

[Part 3: Nobody likes you!]

I fell asleep while watching spike TV
After 10 cups of coffee
And you're still not here
Dreaming of a song
But something went wrong
But I can't tell anyone
'Cause no one's here
Left me here alone
And I should have stayed home
After 10 cups of coffee I'm thinking
(where'd you go?)
Nobody likes you, everyone left you
(where'd you go?)
They're all out without you havin' fun
(where'd you go?)
Everyone left you, nobody likes you
(where'd you go?)
They're all out without you havin' fun
(where'd you go..go..go..go..)

Geeze...Ha..

[Part 4: Rock and roll girlfriend]
[written and sung by Tre Cool]

I got a rock and roll band
I got a rock and roll life
I got a rock and roll girlfriend
And another ex-wife
I got a rock and roll house
I got a rock and roll car
I play the shit out the drums
And I can play the guitar
I got a kid in new york
I got a kid in the bay
I haven't drank or smoked nothin'
In over 22 days
So get off my case

[Part 5: We're coming home again]

Here they come marching down the street
Like a desperation murmur of a heart beat
Coming back from the edge of town
Underneath their feet
The time has come and it going nowhere
Nobody ever said that life was fair now
Go-carts and guns are treasures they will bear
In the summer heat
The world is spinning
Around and around
Out of control again
From the 7-11 to the fear of breaking down
To send my love a letterbomb
And visit me in hell
We're the ones going

Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again

I started fuckin' running
As soon as my feet touched the ground
We're back in the Barrio
But to you and me, that's jingle town

Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again
Home
We're coming home again

Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you havin' funback to top
Whatsername
Thought I ran into you down on the street
Then it turned out to only be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I cant recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Seems that she disappeared without a trace
Did she ever marry old what's his face?
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I cant recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
The regrets are useless
In my mind
She's in my head
I must confess
The regrets are useless
She's in my head
From so long ago

(Go, Go, Go, Go..)

And in the darkest night
If my memory serves me right
I'll never turn back time
Forgetting you, but not the time.back to top
