GREEN DAY

GREEN DAY - American Eulogy

rate me

<BR>

<i>[XIII American Eulogy]</i><br>

<br>

Sing us a song of the century<br>

It sings like American Eulogy<br>

The dawn of my love and conspiracy<br>

Forgotten hope and the class of 13<br>

Tell me a story into that goodnight<br>

Sing us a song for me<br>

<br>

<i>[A. Mass Hysteria]</i><br>

<br>

Hysteria, mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

<br>

Red alert is the colour of panic<br>

Elevated to the point of static<br>

Beating into the hearts of the fanatics<br>

And the neighborhood's a loaded gun<br>

Idle thought lead to full-throttle screaming<br>

And the wellfare is asphyxiating<br>

Mass confusion is all the new age and it's creating a feeding ground for the bottom feeders of hysteria<br>

<br>

Hysteria, mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

<br>

True sounds of manacial laughter<br>

And the deafmute is misleading the choir<br>

The punchline is a natural disaster<br>

And it's sung by the unemployed<br>

Fight fire with a riot<br>

The class war is hanging on a wire because the martyr is a compulsive liar<br>

When he said "it's just a bunch of niggers throwing gas into the ...."<br>

<br>

Hysteria, mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

Mass hysteria!<br>

<br>

There's a disturbance on the oceanside<br>

They tapped into the reserve<br>

The static response is so unclear now<br>

Mayday this is not a test!<br>

As the neighborhood burns, America is falling<br>

Vigilantes warning ya,<br>

calling christian and gloria<br>

<i>[Bridge + Solo]</i><br>

<br>

<i>[B. Modern World]</i><br>

<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

<br>

I'm a fugitive son<br>

In the era of dissent<br>

A hostage of the soul<br>

On a strike to pay the rent<br>

The last of the rebels<br>

Without a common ground<br>

I'm gonna light a fire into the underground<br>

<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

<br>

I am a nation without bureaucratic lies<br>

Deny the allegation as it's written (fucking lies!)<br>

<br>

I want to take a ride to the great divide<br>

Beyond the "up to date" and the neo-gentrified<br>

The high definition for the low resident<br>

Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt<br>

I can hear the sound of a beating heart<br>

That bleeds beyond a system that's falling apart<br>

With money to burn on a minimum wage<br>

I don't give a shit about the modern age<br>

<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world!<br>

<br>

I don't wanna live in the modern world! (Mass hysteria!)<br>

<BR><BR>
