Lyrics

I declare I don't care no more
I'm burning up and out and growing bored
In my smoked out boring room			(Verse 1)
My hair is shagging in my eyes
Dragging my feet to hit the street tonight
To drive along these shit town lights

I'm not growing up
I'm just burning out				(Chorus)
And I've stepped in line
To walk amongst the dead

Apathy has rained on me
And now I'm feeling like a soggy dream
So close to drowning but I don't mind
I've lived inside this mental cave		(Verse 2)
Throw my emotions in the grave
Hell, who needs them anyway?

(Chorus x2)

Lyrics

I'm taking
All you down with me
Explosives duct-taped to my spine
Nothing's gonna change my mind
I won't listen					(Verse 1)
To anyone's last words
There's nothing left for you to say
Soon you'll be dead anyway

Well no one here
Is getting out alive
This time I've really lost my mind
And I don't care
So close your eyes				(Chorus)
And kiss yourself goodbye
And think about the times you spent
And what they've meant
To me it's nothing  (x4)

I'm losing
All my happiness
The happiness you pinned on me
My loneliness still comforts me
My anger					(Verse 2)
Dwells inside of me
I'm taking it all out on you
And all the shit you put me through

(Chorus)

Do you ever think back
To another time					(Interlude)
Did it bring you so down
That you thought you lost your mind

Do you ever want to lead
A long trail of destruction
And mow down any bullshit
That confronts you				(Bridge)
Do you ever build up
All the small things in your head
To make one problem
That adds up to nothing

To me it's nothing

Green Day
Dookie (1994)
Lyrics: Billie Joe Armstrong
Music: Green Day
Tuning: 1/2 step down (sounds a semitone lower than written here)
Notes: The G# on the verse might be wrong, but it's close.  Each
bridge strum has half the beats as the previous strum, listen to
the song and you'll get it.

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide up
\ = slide down

Lyrics

I don't know you
But I think I hate you
You're the reason for my misery		(Verse 1)
Strange how you've become
My biggest enemy
And I've never seen your face

Well maybe it's just jealousy
Mixing up with a violent mind
A circumstance that			(Chorus)
Doesn't make much sense
Or maybe I'm just dumb

You're the cloud
Hangin out over my head
Hail comes down welting my face
Magic man				(Verse 2)
Egocentric plastic man
Yet you still got one over on me

(Chorus)

Lyrics

Sit around and watch the tube, nothing's on
Change the channel for an hour or two
Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit		(Verse 1)
I'm sick of all the same old shit
In a house with unlocked doors
And I'm fuckin lazy

Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise			(Chorus 1)
I'm so damn bored I'm goin blind
And I smell like shit

Peel me off this Velcro seat and get me movin
I sure as hell can't do it by myself
I'm feelin like a dog in heat			(Verse 2)
Barred indoors from a summer street
I locked the door to my own cell
And I lost the key

(Chorus 1)

I got no motivation
Where is my motivation				(Bridge)
No time for my motivation
Smokin's my inspiration

Sit around and watch the phone, no one's callin
Call me pathetic, call me what you will
My mother says to get a job			(Verse 3)
But she don't like the one she's got
When masturbation's lost it's fun
You're fuckin lazy

Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
I'm so damn bored I'm goin blind
None of this has to suffice			(Chorus 2)
Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
Some say quit or I'll go blind
But it's just a myth

Kerplunk! (1992) / Dookie (1994)
Lyrics: Billie Joe Armstrong
Music: Green Day
Tuning: 1/2 step down (sounds a semitone lower than written here)
Notes: Bridge has one guitar track doing some weird feedback, and
another guitar track doing the little solo, and then the chords.
The solo here is the one on the Dookie version, the one on
Kerplunk! is quite similar.

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide up

Lyrics

Dear mother, can you hear me whining
It's been three whole weeks
Since I have left your home			(Verse 1)
This sudden fear has left me trembling
Cuz now it seems that I am
Out here on my own, and I'm feeling so alone

Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes
Some call it the slums, some call it nice	(Chorus)
I wanna take you through a wasteland
I like to call my home
Welcome to paradise

A gunshot rings out at the station
Another urchin snaps
And left dead on his own			(Verse 2)
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's now
Feeling like my home, and I'm never gonna go

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

Dear mother, can you hear me laughing
It's been six whole months
Since I have left your home			(Verse 3)
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's now
Feeling like my home, and I'm never gonna go

(Chorus)

Green Day
Dookie (1994)
Lyrics: Billie Joe Armstrong
Music: Green Day

Notes: This song has a bit of a countryish feel.  If you don't
want to play the B5/A, just play A5, it should sound ok.

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide up

Lyrics

I'm all busted up
Broken bones and nasty cuts		(Verse 1)
Accidents will happen
But this time I can't get up

She comes to check on me
Making sure I'm on my knees		(Verse 2)
After all, she's the one
Who put me in this state

Is she ultra-violent?
Is she disturbed?
I better tell her that I love her	(Chorus)
Before she does it all over again
Oh God, she's killing me

For now I'll lie around
Hell that's all I can really do		(Verse 3)
She takes good care of me
Just keep saying my love is true

Lookin out my window
For someone that's passing by
No one knows I'm locked in here		(Bridge)
All I do is cry

Lyrics

Do you have the time
To listen to me whine
About nothing and everything
All at once
		                     (Verse 1)
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up               (Chorus)
I think I'm crackin up
Am I just parananoid
Am I just stoned

(Bridge)

I went to a shrink
To analyse my dreams
He said it's lack of sex
That's bringin me down
				     (Verse 2)
I went to a whore
He said my life's a bore
So quit my whinin
Cuz it's bringin her down

Lyrics

She, she screams in silence
A sullen riot penetrating through her mind
Waiting for a time to smash the silence		(Verse 1)
With a brick of self-control

Are you locked up in a world
That's been planned out for you
Are you feeling like a social tool
Without a use					(Chorus)
Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

She, she's figured out all her doubts
Were someone else's point of view		(Verse 2)
Waking up this time to smash the silence
With a brick of self-control

(Chorus)

Roamin 'round your house wasting your time
No obligation just wasting your time		(Verse 1)
So why are you alone wasting your time?
When you could be with me wasting your time

Well I'm a waste like you
With nothing else to do				(Chorus)
May I waste your time too?

Wardin off regrets wasting your time
Smokin cigarettes wasting your time		(Verse 2)
I'm just a parasite wasting your time
Applying myself to wasting your time

So why are you alone wasting your time?		(Verse 3)

Lyrics

I heard you cry it loud
All the way across town
You've been searchin
For that someone
And it's me out of the crowd
As you sit around
Feeling sorry for yourself
					(Verse 1)
So don't get lonely now
And dry your whinin eyes
I'm just roamin for the moment
Sleazin my backyard so don't get
So uptight you've been thinkin
About ditchin me

No time to search the world around
Cuz you know where I'll be found        (Chorus)
When I come around

I heard it all before
So don't knock down my door
I'm a loser, and a user
So I don't need no accuser
To try and slag me down
Because I know you're right
					(Verse 2)
So go do what you like
Make sure you do it wise
You may find out that your self-doubt
Means nothing was ever there
You can't go forcing something
If it's just not right

Lyrics

Seventeen and strung out on confusion
Trapped inside a roll of disillusion		(Verse 1)
I found out what it takes to be a man
Well Mom and Dad will never understand

Secrets collecting dust but never forget
Skeletons come to life in my closet		(Verse 2)
I found out what it takes to be a man
Well Mom and Dad will never understand
What's happening to me

Seventeen and coming clean for the first time
I finally figured out myself for the first time
I found out what it takes to be man		(Verse 3)
Well Mom and Dad will never understand
What's happening to me

Lyrics

I saw my friend the other day
And I don't know			(Verse 1)
Exactly just what he became
It doesn't show

It wasn't long ago
That I was just like you
And now I think I'm sick		(Chorus 1)
And I wanna go home

How have I been, how have you been?
It's been so long			(Verse 2)
What have you done with all your time?
And what went wrong?

I knew you back when
And you, you knew me			(Chorus 2)
And now I think you're sick
And I wanna go home

Anybody ever say no?
Ever tell you that you weren't right?
Where did all the little kid go?	(Bridge)
Did you lose it in a hateful fight?
And you know it's true

All brawn and no brains
And all those nice things
You finally got what you want		(Verse 1)
Someone to look good with
And light your cigarette
Is this what you really want?

I figured out
What you're all about
And I don't think I like what I see
Sooooooo				(Chorus)
I hope I won't be there
In the end when you come around

How long will he last
Before he's a creep in the past
And you're alone once again		(Verse 2)
Will you pop up again
And be my special friend
'Till the end, and when will that be?

Lyrics

Something's on my mind
It's been for quite some time
This time I'm on to you				(Verse 1)
So where's the other face
The face I hurt before
Your end trip's boring me

Let's nuke the bridge
We've torched 1000 times before
This time we'll blast it all to hell		(Chorus 1)
I've had this burning in my guts
Now for so long
My belly's aching now to say

Stuck down in a rut
Of dislogic and sput
A side of you well hid
When it's all said and done			(Verse 2)
It's real and it's been fun
But was it all real fun?

(Chorus 1)
(To say....)

You're just a fuck
I can't explain it 'cause I think you suck	(Bridge)
I'm taking pride
In telling you to fuck off and die

I've had this burning in my guts
Now for so long
My belly's aching now to say
I'm taking pleasure in the doubts		(Chorus 2)
I've passed to you
So listen up 'cause you might miss...

(Bridge) (Good night.......)
