"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk'?, and I say 'No that's trendy'!"- Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day


I told her “gas prices are dropping
But so’s my self-esteem”
She said “I don’t have the time for this;
Just take one for the team"
Against my better judgment
I trusted you; the curse of youth

I’m reminded I can’t coexist
With the way you live your life
I told you I won’t live hand over fist
But it’s why we always fight

Now I’m ashamed to admit
In spite of everything I thought I knew
I let you get the best of me
You hid behind your selfish ways
I only asked for honesty
And now every time I see your face

I’m reminded I can’t coexist
With the way you live your life
I told you I won’t live hand over fist
But it’s why you’re always right

I’m feeling mixed emotions
For a girl I can’t define
I’m lacking forward motion
So I’ll leave you behind

I’m reminded I can’t coexist
With the way you live your life
I told you I won’t live hand over fist
But it’s why we always fight

I won’t try to save face
So let’s just cut to the chase
You could be so much more
Than just passed out on the floor

I won’t try to save face
So let’s just cut to the chase
You could be so much more
Than just passed out on the floor
