I just found this ..


I go into the darkness through me same only

which you would make?

what is it, which I would make?

I do not know myself.

at the moment.

Attacks of the concern of the fear crises

who are the brutal majority

my heart blows.

as if it to excape. would be??

I look at over.

of my environment.

everything is in-wound.

in the dark covering of the night.

My eyes begin themselves have lose in the darkness.

becomes more translucent. at my opinion.

I feel a feeling.

I am free.

in order to make, what I like.

Are you it?

by Billie Joe Armstrong





I look firmly upward on its face

I knew this smile on

I swim in its affectionate eyes, and see.

Its hochnaesigen lips over-accumulate up

I can only introduce itself, only one dream dun day.

I can only dream.

it seems I observes it in repetition.

As if the whole days, how it is, but the same.

Repetition again, but it is a Feenerzaehlung.

I can dream, but soon I see another day?

Does she dream about another night?

my dear, dear Adrienne

however, it is and always, another night

will be only another windy night

by Billie Joe Armstrong for Adrienne



Is that known ?

If that was on poetry.com, no one knows for sure if it's him or not.

Are those poems from poetry.com ?

And as for Billie's songwriting,I think he's definitely one of my favorites.The fact that he can sugarcode some of the things he's trying to say with actual metaphors unlike most songwriters who obviously have zero talent when it comes to that.I think somewhere around Kerplunk and Nimrod was where Billie had a lot of good lyrics although I do love each of his lyrics because they always have good meanings and have impacted lots of people.

I love how his lyrics are somewhat misty. They make the listener try to figure out what he's saying. I mean he never DIRECTLY says anything.. if anyone gets what I mean

I get what you mean and I agree.In a song like NOK if he just came out and said he hates being forced to grow up (or something like that),it'd lose the fun out of actually reading the lyrics and figuring it out.

Ok that made no sense whatsoever Laughing.

I think I remember reading somewhere that another inspiration for AI came directly from the Media attention in Iraq and how it had become entertainment and reality TV, does anyone remember what interview that's from?

I think he said something like that on 100% Green Day on Fuse.


I heard the same thing.

Aww...I didn't know exactly where to put this, but I'm listening to Box Car Racer (Travis and Tom from Blink 182 and others!) and their song "Nintendo Week" Talks about "breaking out of these chains" and says "all of your time gets wasted in my daze!!"

Hm.. I was thinking.

I read the graffiti
In the bathroom stall
Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
And so it seemed to confess
It didn't say much
But it only confirmed that
The center of the earth
Is the end of the world
And I could really care less


.. Well, Billie saw it was written "Billie Joe must die" on the bathroom wall at Gilman St. And it killed him.. but then he realized he was in his best time (center of the earth) and he sarcastically says "Is the end of the world" And then.. "like he could give a shit" Cool
