Desensitized Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (6)



Clenching my teeth tight
My head is like a sponge
Give it to me free
I wanna get ripped off
And drown in the airwaves
Another fatal wreck
On the information highway

So go ahead and kill yourselves
It all amuses me
For I'll be damned to spend my life in hell
Another wise ingrate

Bring me blood and pain
Of a stranger's fate
Give it all away

Give it to me now

I'm desensitized
sponsored links
I wanna watch the bomb
Blow the masses high

I wanna get ripped off
And drown in the airwaves
Another fatal wreck
On the information highway
So go ahead and kill yourselves
It all amuses me
For I'll be damned to spend my life in hell
Another wise ingrate

Bring me blood and pain
Of a stranger's fate
Give it all away
I wanna get ripped off
And drown in the airwaves
Another fatal wreck
On the information highway
So go ahead and kill yourselves
It all amuses me
For I'll be damned to spend my life in hell
Another wise ingrate

Very True | Reviewer: 5tifler | 1/13/12

This is one of my all-time favorite by Green Day.
And it is as true today as it was when the first wrote it.
With all of the gore and pain on TV and the internet ("information super highway") we have become desensitized! Years ago it was Rotton.com now its 4chan.. even tv itself has been push as far as showing public executions and showing live images of death and killing.
But after we were all witness to it on 9/11 how do you forget? what has been seen cannot be unseen. I can personally say that this song is relatable. although I dont take pleasure in seeing gore and atrocities, I have seen them and they dont bother me the way they used to. Its sad but true. Thank you green day for your amazing songs!



Underated | Reviewer: Max Janu | 9/19/11

Shenanigans is waaaaaay too underated, as is most of Green Day's work. This song is just awesome, like other Shenanigans songs such as Do Da Da and You Lied. It's funny that Green Day's B-Sides are better than most band's A-Sides.
The beginning of this song is funny, sounds like Mike Dirnt. But I like it how more energy is created as the song goes along and as more guitars are added.

And I'm pretty sure that this is about how the media and government hides the general public to all the horrors that go around in the world, and saying that they do not give a shit about people who died and they see them as insignificant.

Great Song.



Brilliant Song | Reviewer: Gloria | 8/24/10

I like the beginning. Hahaha... I think maybe it's Tré getting things thrown at him because it sounds like his voice.

Antwho, I think that this song is about how we are all "desensitized" because we hear about bombings, rapes, murders, crashes, etc. everyday, either on TV, or the Radio, or the movies. It's so normal in our American Society.


Kudos to Green Day and Mr. Billie Joe Armstrong for another brilliant piece of art.




AMAZING song. | Reviewer: Lisa | 9/26/09

In my opinion, this song is about no one caring about other people's pain. Well, they don't...

But I love the intro! It's hilarious. I love how all hell breaks out... but what are the sounds? Chairs? Drums? LOL!!



wow | Reviewer: B | 9/12/09

this song is about how everyone in America almost dont care when someone dies (desensitized) on tv cause it happens everyday and no one really cries about it think about it. The beginning is funny lol w/ the sounds of someone getting stuff thrown at them.



Awesome song. | Reviewer: AJ-Whatsernamex | 8/29/08

I think this song is about terrorism/suicide bombers. - maybe.
i just love this song atm, i don't think it gets enough recognition - like alot of other GD songs get. this is just as good, in my opinion :) <3 long live green day eh. xD
