This is a nice song, with a pretty familiar melody, but its still a good song

I really like Green Day's new album, they slightly change their sound every album

with is a good thing, but of course there is still that 'touch of green day' in here

so you always know its them :) def one of my favourite bands

Lyrics

 

Take away the sensation inside

bittersweet migraine in my head

It's like a throbbing toothache of the mind

I can't take this feeling any more

 

Drain the pressure from the swelling

this sensation's overwhelming

Give me a long kiss goodnight

and everything will be alright

Tell me that I won't feel a thing

Give me novacaine

 

Out of body and out of mind

kiss the demonds out of my dreams

I get the funny feeling and that's alright

Jimmy says it's better than here

 

Drain the pressure from the swelling

this sensation's overwhelming

Give me a long kiss goodnight

and everything will be alright

Tell me Jimmy I won't feel a thing

Give me novacaine
