21st Century Breakdown Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (2)



Born into Nixon I was raised in Hell
A welfare child where the teamsters dwelled
The last one born and the first one to run
My town was blind from refinery sun

My generation is zero
I never made it as a working class hero

21st century breakdown
I once was lost but never was found
I think I'm losing what's left of my mind
To the 20th century deadline

I was made of poison and blood
Condemnation is what I understood
Videogames to the tower's fall
Homeland security could kill us all

My generation is zero
I never made it as a working class hero

sponsored links
21st century breakdown
I once was lost but never was found
I think I'm losing what's left of my mind
To the 20th century deadline

We are the cries of the class of thirteen
Born in the era of Humility
We are the desperate in the decline
Raised by the bastards of 1969

My name is No One, the long lost son
Born on the 4th of July

Raised in the era of Heroes and Cons
That left me for dead or alive

I am a nation, a worker of pride
My debt to the status quo

The scars on my hands and the means to an end
It's all that I have to show

I swallowed my pride
And I choked on my faith,
I've given my heart and my soul
I've broken my fingers
And lied through my teeth,
The pillar of damage control

I've been to the edge
And I've thrown the bonquet
Of flowers left over the grave
I sat in the waiting room
Wasting my time
And waiting for judgement day

I praise Liberty
"The freedom to obey"
Is the song that strangles me
Well don't cross the line

Oh dream, America Dream
I can't even sleep
From the Light's Early Dawn

Oh scream, America scream
Believe what you see
From heroes and cons

21st Century Breakdown is a very catchy, good song for 2009, and, like all Green Day songs, amazing. Now if you were able to buy the newest Green Day live album Awsome As F**k, it was amazing live!! I got the CD/DVD, so i was up at 3 a.m every night watching the DVD! I like it how in 21st Century Breakdown, theres the part that goes: "I never made it as the working class hero." But in the Awsome As F**k CD, Billie decide to change it up a little:) instead, he says: "I never made it as the working class... LET'S GO!!!" It's amazing!! Also in the CD (for 21st Century Breakdown), Billie Joe says: "Are you with me!!" Croud: *SCREAMS* Billie: "Are you with me!!" Croud: *SCREAMS* Billie: "This is what i need you to do... This is what i need you to do. When i say 1, 2, 3, 4... I want everyone to go fucking crazy!!!" I love him!!:D



Wrong on so many levels | Reviewer: britt | 5/19/10

ok so whoever wrote the lyrics to this song needs to be shot. there is 2 verses missing and then there are 2 verses that aren't even in the song... so yea whoever wrote this needs to die a horrible death for botching one of the greatest green day songs ever.
