"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


So there I was just writing myself off
Trying to find a way to get gravity to stop
When it occurred to me that destiny
is just another delayed epiphany

So before you ask me,
Yes, I’m feeling lucky
Someone has to make it out of here alive
And I’m thinking it might be me

So there I was just living out a lie
Just trying to find a way to feel alive
And now I’m lost, I can’t find your face
I’m only left with dreams of my escape

Drowning in lies and disbelief
I just want some space to breathe
But there’s nowhere on this city street
Where I can hide from my defeat

I’m falling fast asleep
Will I see you in my dreams?

So before you ask me,
Yes, I’m feeling lucky
Someone has to make it out of here alive
And I’m thinking it might be me

So before you ask me,
Yes, I’m feeling f***ed up
I feeling the weight of my mistakes
And I’m thinking this one through

And now everywhere I go I see
Lonely lies and memories
What will it take for you to see
I’m not the man I used to be

I’m falling fast asleep
Will you be there in my dreams?
And if I leave today
Would you wait for me?
I’ve made my last mistake
I’m playing games with fate
Lost through time and space
I’m dreaming of escape
