  • I’m too tired to be bored
    I’m too bored to be tired
    And the silence is so deafening
    It’s like picking at a sore
    I’m too mental to go crazy
    I’m too drunk to be pure
    And my mind is playing tricks on me
    And I can’t sleep tonight ’cause I’m so tired

    I can’t take it anymore
    With all the liars
    Like a prisoner of war
    I don’t want your sympathy
    I don’t want your honesty
    I just want to get some peace of mind
    It’s only in my head
    As I roll over and play dead
    I don’t want to hear it anymore

    It’s good to see you but I really must admit
    There’s an odor in the air and I think you look like shit
    I can’t stand from falling down.
    I’m too sick to throw up.
    Everyone keeps talking and they can’t shut the fuck up
    ‘Cause I’m so tired.

    I can’t take it anymore.
    With all the liars, like a prisoner of war.
    I don’t want your sympathy.
    I don’t want your honesty.
    I just want to get some peace of mind.
    It’s only in my head as I roll over and play dead.
    I don’t want to hear it anymore.

    I don’t want your sympathy.
    I don’t want your honesty.
    I just want to get some peace of mind.
    It’s only in my head as I roll over and play dead.
    I don’t want to hear about it.
    I don’t want to scream about it.
    I don’t want to hear it anymore. Writer/s: Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, Tre Cool

  • Jb from Nashville, TnI think Rachel is totally right, the chorus has similar melodies to Favourite Son, but I didn't realize how much it also has the feeling of Give Me Novocaine, especially on the Otis Big Guitar Mix EP.
  • Reggev from Misgav, IsraelThe beginning sounds too much like 99 revolutions.
  • Maddy from Boston, MaThis song is one of my favorites on this CD! Great beat!
  • Rachel from Albany, NyI think the chorus sounds like favorite son a little bit. I didn't notice the similarities to Give Me Novacaine but maybe I should give it another listen.
