Green Day American Eulogy Lyrics

Last updated: 08/31/2011 11:00:00 AM

[XIII American Eulogy]

Sing us a song of the century
It sings like American Eulogy
The dawn of my love and conspiracy
Forgotten hope and the class of 13
Tell me a story into that goodnight
Sing us a song for me

[A. Mass Hysteria]

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

Red alert is the colour of panic
Elevated to the point of static
Beating into the hearts of the fanatics
And the neighborhood's a loaded gun
Idle thought lead to full-throttle screaming
And the wellfare is asphyxiating
Mass confusion is all the new age and it's creating a feeding ground for the bottom feeders of hysteria

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

True sounds of manacial laughter
And the deafmute is misleading the choir
The punchline is a natural disaster
And it's sung by the unemployed
Fight fire with a riot
The class war is hanging on a wire because the martyr is a compulsive liar
When he said "it's just a bunch of niggers throwing gas into the ...."

Hysteria, mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!
Mass hysteria!

There's a disturbance on the oceanside
They tapped into the reserve
The static response is so unclear now
Mayday this is not a test!
As the neighborhood burns,
America is falling,
Vigilantes warning ya,
calling christian and gloria

[Bridge + Solo]

[B. Modern World]

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

Well I'm the class of '13
In the era of dissent
A hostage of the soul
On a strike to pay the rent
The last of the rebels
Without a common ground
I'm gonna light a fire into the underground

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

I am a nation without bureaucratic ties
Deny the allegation as it's written (fucking lies!)

I want to take a ride to the great divide
Beyond the "up to date" and the neo-gentrified
The high definition for the low resident
Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt
I can hear the sound of a beating heart
That bleeds beyond a system that is falling apart
With money to burn on a minimum wage
I don't give a shit about the modern age

I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!
I don't wanna live in the modern world!

I don't wanna live in the modern world! (Mass hysteria!)

in my opinion... | Reviewer: jenn gaud | 11/2/10

i thought this album wasnt their best, many of the songs sounded alike, and everything was about the same cause, in american idiot, the songs had a level of difference, and sounded great. american eulogy was one of the good songs on the album, i do like it and i have listented to it over 50 times on my iphone. it took them 4 years to write this album , and it didnt come out all that great. im not trying to be a critic, trust me, i love their music, but it never really came out all that great. I hope they make another album soon.



Best | Reviewer: Lexi | 3/30/10

In my opinion, this is one of the best songs off of 21st Century Breakdwon. I bought the album the day it came out. After the first few songs I didn't really like it because it sounded different. It got better when I heard this song. After listening to the album a few times, it grew on me. I love it. One of Green Day's best! xD
