Starry nights city lights Coming down over me Skyscrapers, stargazers in my head Are we we are, are we we are The waiting unknown This dirty town was burning down in my dreams Lost and found, city bound in my dreams
And screaming Are we we are, are we we are the waiting And screaming Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
Forget me nots, second thoughts live in isolation Heads or tails and fairy tales in my mind Are we we are, are we we are the waiting unknown The rage and love, the story of my life The Jesus of suburbia is a lie
And screaming Are we we are, are we we are the waiting And screaming Are we we are, are we we are the waiting Are we we are, are we we are the waiting And screaming Are we we are, are we we are the waiting Are we we are, are we we are the waiting

Stacy from UkThe whole album is about the government's agenda - mainly with war. It all relates back to that. Listen to it closer. Billie Joe Armstrong has strong political views. American idiot is about irag and this is about 911. You need to listen from start to finish to appreciate the meaning
Beth from Auckland, New Zealandlearning how to play the drums to this
Charlene from San Diego, CaAt their concert in Chula Vista on Sept. 2, 2010, they launched into an extended rendition of this song that seemed to go on for about 10 minutes, with the audience singing to him the whole time. Supposedly they were recording the concert for a live album. I would love to hear the recording, as it was a moving experience.
Sc from Anchorage, AkBeautiful song :) John Gallagher, Jr. sings an awesome version in the musical adaptation of American Idiot.
Latrey from Belcourt, NdWho cares what people think this band has survived everything and it is the only band i know from the 1990's that still kick's ass
Matt from Houston, Txone of the few good songs off ai
Peter from -, Brazil"Wrong" was a little too harsh. A broader conclusion usually derives from a narrower one.
Peter from -, BrazilI think you are all wrong. Play close attention to the text: "Are *we* the waiting"? Interpreting (contextually) rather than just analyzing, you'll come to the broader conclusion that this is not a question asked by an individual, but by a whole generation.
Declan from LiverpoolWaiting for death :S I'd say what Bryan put is about right
Matthew from New York City, NylEAD singer Billie Jo,also says that the JOS is a lie...creating St.Jimmy
Izzy from Buffalo, Nyhe, he, he. i like the phrasing above. it's like, maybe running away from home wasn't exactly the best thing to do, but oh well, screw that. anyways, this song rocks hard. one of my fave songs by green day
Bill from Erie, PaThis song is rather reminiscent of the Clash's "London Calling".
Bryan from Medford, Withis song is about JOS waiting for something to come and make things better. Then he creates St. Jimmy.
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
