Life During Wartime Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (5)

[Sung by Billie Joe Armstrong]
[Originally by Pinhead Gunpowder]

Yeah we say making changes starts in the little things you do
Revolution begins at home but for most of us it ends there too, and
Doing something we're making changes like changing the brand of crap we buy,
We say it makes a difference but that's just another lie.

It used to be us and them and you and me.
And now we can't reach our potential without a common enemy,
A real war to fight against, instead of our petty disagreements,
How can I rationalize my life during wartime lie.

A call to action and a reaction,
Taking our lives in our own hands,
Instead of sitting around and talking about the same old shitty bands.

A war is going on right now,
And I'm not doing anything about it,
Without a crowd I'm not so loud,
I can't do anything by myself,
But that's just another lie.

You know what I'm doing an assignment right now on Billie Joe I find it contradictive of him to say these things, I mean he's right about what he's talking about but in the end i've been trying to find examples of his contribution and i've found nothing.

pretty sure Billie wrote it so it's his song to do what the f*** he wants with it. Should read, "Performed by Billie Joe Armstrong" i don't hear any bass drums or back-up vocals so why the Green Day tag?

Yes, you're right, it was by a band called Pinhead Gunpowder and Billy Joe was the singer. However, after the band split, Billy Joe respectively owns copyright to the song and Green Day does now technically own it along with Pinhead Gunpowder. They didn't perform it though because he wanted to show respect to the other members of Pinhead Gunpowder.

Not A Green Day Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/3/07

This song actually isn't Green Day. It's by a band called Pinhead Gunpowder with Billie Joe as a singer.

I think that Billie is very brave to air this, no other musician would have the guts to say how they really feel.But many of Green days more recent songs have been taking tje mick.
This is a very moving song and it portrays all the lies and phoneys that are portrayed during war,how 1 person can make a difference
"How can i rationalise my life during wartime lies?"
