Green Day Pulling Teeth Lyrics

Last updated: 09/25/2013 01:21:45 PM

I'm all busted up, broken bones and nasty cuts
Accidents will happen but this time I can't get up
She comes to check on me, making sure I'm on my knees
After all she's the one who put me in this state

Is she ultra-violent, is she disturbed?
I'd better tell her that I love her
Before she does it all over again
Oh God, she's killing me!!!

For now I'll lie around, hell that's all I can really do
She takes good care of me, just keep saying my love is true

Is she ultra-violent, is she disturbed?
I'd better tell her that I love her
Before she does it all over again
Oh God, she's killing me!!!

Looking out my window for someone that's passing by
No one knows I'm locked in here, all I do is cry

For now I'll lie around, hell that's all I can really do
She takes good care of me, just keep saying my love is true

My interpretation | Reviewer: Nixon | 9/3/12

This is a great song. I don't like to take it as literally as many people may (because hey, it's a Green Day song). I think of the hospitalization as a metaphor for a bad patch or fight in his relationship. They are still dating, but it's rough (she comes to check on me). He wants to stay with her so he tries telling her he loves her so that they don't get in any more fights. The "Looking out the window" part symbolizes how he has cooped up his emotions and has no one to talk to.

Sweet! | Reviewer: Lisa | 11/9/09

Best Green Day song no one knows. It doesn't even appear on the Google search engine, come on! It's an awesome song, it should be publicized. It's better than anything on that new album, 21st Century Breakdown.
