The Green Day Lyrics Are Below

Green Day

21st Century Breakdown

 

Born into Nixon I was raised in hell

A welfare child

Where the teamsters dwelled

The last one born

The first one to run

My town was blind from refinery sun

 

My generation is zero

I never made it

As a working class hero

 

21st Century Breakdown

I once was lost but never was found

I think I am losing

What's left of my mind

To the 20th century deadline

 

I was made of poison and blood

Condemnation is what I understood

 

Videogames of the towers fall

Homeland security

Could kill us all

 

We are the class of '13

Born in the era of humility

We are the desperate in the decline

Raised by the bastards of 1969

 

My name is no one

The long lost son

Born on the 4th of July

Raised in the era of heroes and cons

That left me for dead or alive

 

I am a nation

A worker of pride

My debt to the status quo

 

The scars on my hands

And the means to an ends

Is all the that I have to show

 

I swallowed my pride

And I choked on my faith

I've given my heart and my soul

I've broken my fingers

And lied through my teeth

The pillar of damage control

 

I've been to the edge

And I've thrown the bouquet

Of flowers left over the grave

I sat in the waiting room

Wasting my time

And waiting for judgement day

 

I praise liberty

The "freedom to obey"

Is the song that strangles me

Don't cross the line

 

Dream, America dream

I can't even sleep

From the light's early dawn

 

Scream, America scream

Believe what you see

From heroes and cons
