Virginia was a "lot lizard" from F.L.A. She had a compound fracture in the "trunk" It started when she ran away Thumbs out on the interstate She hitched a ride to misery
"Mr. Whirly" had a catastrophic incident He fell into a city by the bay He liquidated his estate Now he sleeps upon the Height Panhandling misery
He's gonna get high high high When he's low low low The fire burns from better days And she screams why oh why I said I don't know The catastrophic hymns from yesterday Of misery
Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam He ran the drug cartel in "Tinseltown" They found him in a Cadillac Bludgeoned with a baseball bat in the name Of misery
Gina hit the road to new york city Mysteriously the night Vinnie croaked She stopped in Vegas to elope With Virgina and the dope And kissed the bride eternally
They're gonna get high high high When they're low low low The fire burns from better days And she screams why oh why I said I don't know The catastrophic hymns from yesterday Of misery
Hell hounds on your trail now once again, boy Its groping on your leg until it sleeps The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow Because its not what you make, its what you leave
And we're gonna get high high high When we're low low low The fire burns from better days And she screams why oh why I said I don't know The catastrophic hymns from yesterday Of misery

Ily from Wellington, New ZealandThis song is so awesome! It reminds me of somekind of russian folk song and then near the end almost mexican. Fantastic contrast of instruments!
Kat from Chicago, IlOh man, this is the only Green Day song which I really love, and it seems hardly anyone else here agrees with me. I can't believe how few comments this one has. The song is so pretty and sad and the instruments are played marvelously.
Thomas from Chicago, Il"Misery" reminds me of the beginning "Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar)" by The Doors.
Mathew from Perth, Australiagreat song. love the different instrument used in it. deffinately in my top 10 favourites songs
Tom from Mead County, KyMisery is so awsome because of all the different types of instruments that are being played in the song. The solo with the two types of guitar and the countless of different instruments in the backround. This song is about a group of people having there share of drugs and misery.
