Bordem has driven to insanity of wanting to write down more.
(Even though now I know what the songs are saying, I keep on forgetting and I get fucked up and lost, so writing this has kinda helped me out)
*Awesome Song

"My head is spinning underneath my Puke"
My Order's spending underneath my puke
"And feeling like a salad in my puke"
Spillin' My good time under my puke

"And otherwise Ingrate"
Another Wise Ingrate

You Lied*
"Pinnocio has pierced your Tounge"
Can I will be your special tounge

**YES! The very first Green Day song that I knew all of!**

Don't Wanna Fall in Love
"This May sound a little-"
This maze ounds a little"

Oh yeah, tough song. Rolling Eyes This song rocks anyway.

I wanna be on TV
"Wanna be on Solid Gold"
Wanna go on Star Wars
"Started out in 54"
Stupid year; 54
"On a Magazine"
Blahblah, magazine
"Gonna Have some Free Cocaine"
Gunna answer the cocoaine

"Shinning a grin and a brand new life"
Shitting agree in a brand new life
"From the Wear of Sin" this actually the right lyrics?
But from where I'm Sittin'~this makes more sense to me...

Tired of Waiting for You
**It's hard to make a mistake when it's a short slow song**

Sick of Me
"To your Lies"
Through your Lies
"Wanderin' Out the Door"
One without the door
"Loss of Health"
Lost in love
"Do you have a reason
Do you have a raisen

"Whisper are you dying in my Ear"
Whisper are you dying in my head
"Tumors in My Head"
Too much in my Head
"20 Pounds of Trust"
Two thousand Trusts
(For the longest time I thought this song was about a guy who had some kind of brain disease that was killing him from the inside)

Doo Da Da
"Advancing my Frusterations"
Vince's my Frustration!
"Rushings of my depression"
"Hand up your soul to my wrist
And I'll vow my trust to you
Moving here I always thought
I realized you've imagined"
I had no idea in hell what the fuck Billie was talking about in this entire verse until just today. i had just thought he was making...weird noises

On the Wagon
"Twice the size of my one inch mind"
Twice the size of my one inch mouth
"Turn me right around"
Turn me round-around

Ha Ha You're Dead*
"Look how things have Gotten"
Look at all the things I've gotten

I didn't have too much trouble with this.
Oh, forgot; I used the lyrics from's database.
Thanks whoever took their time to write all that down.

I got it

Yay! *hugs* this is going off topic fast.

Yeah I just remembered another one I had in Homecoming...

Right Lyrics- "Bringing Gifts, and trust..."

And used to think it was "Gifts and drugs" lol

It's Trust?



I think it's better "Drugs" personally...

I agree lol...I sing it that way anyways because I'm a weirdo lol

I thought it was drugs until I read this...
Because my American Idiot is burned
I dont actually have the actual CD lol

"Started out in 54"
Stupid year; 54

Would you call me an asshole if I pointed out the actual lyric is "studio 54"?

Although it's not like I haven't misheard parts of that song. I thought "Then the world will be all mine" was "Then the world will be alright".

I'll do some more:
I was listening to a live version of Hitchin' a Ride and it sounded like Billie sang "Do you break for dipshit spirits".

In When I Come Around I thought he sang "Seems I've gone off on a tangent" instead of "Sleazing my backyard so don't get..."

Hitchin' a ride: My tongue is swelling up, I say shag
Nobody likes you: after 10 cups of coffee and bacon
The death of jimmy: bearing gifts and drugs
Redundant: Now I waste it, fainted
When I come around: And dry your wooden eyes
When I come around: So don't you watch your Mike *i don't have a clue what that means*

In Jaded, it's 'going straight will get you nowhere' I always thought 'going psycho gets you nowhere' Rolling Eyes

I still don't know all the words to Jaded.. it's too fast.. plus I don't own Insomniac

And on jackass I thought 'to love you is to hate you so loving you must be like suicide' but it's 'to know you is to hate you so loving you must be like suicide' I just figured that out after I got warning...
