actually..im pretty sure the song is billie joe on a acid trip


bite my lips and close my eyes...take m e away to paradise..
thats a dead giveaway that at that point ...he was tweeking lol


the term longview does mean the long outlook on life....but i think in the song when he says get him moving...he needs helo cuz hes tripping out of his mind lol

i even heard bj say something bout this song having mis construed lyrics


bite my lips close my eyes is definitley something u do when tripping lol

Longview is a town. It is actually where Green Day originated. Longview, WA. In the song he says, "Take me away to paradise," In the song "Welcome to Paradise" he says, "Pay attention to the cracked streets & the broken homes
Some call it slums some call it nice, I wanna take you through a wasteland I like to call my home, Welcome to paradise" Both are about the town of Longview, WA. And if you ask me the songs are pretty dead on it is a messed up town!
