A response song to the obscure Green Day recording "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?
," this song is meant to be a show of sympathy for the titular character, the protagonist of the 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye
by J.D. Salinger. The singer feels sympathy for all of the remorse the teenage antihero is going through, but also advises him to just process what he did, learn from his mistakes, and move on because nobody got very far in life by dwelling on the past.
