Redundant

Album: Nimrod (1997)
Charted: 27
  • We're living in repetition
    Content in the same old shtick again
    Now the routine's turning to contention
    Like a production line going over and over and over
    Roller coaster
    Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice
    I'm speechless and redundant
    'Cause I love you's not enough
    I'm lost for words

    Choreographed and lack of passion
    Prototypes of what we were
    Went full circle 'til I'm nauseous
    Taken for granted now
    I waste it, faked it, ate it, now I hate it
    'Cause I cannot speak, I lost my voice
    I'm speechless and redundant
    'Cause I love you's not enough
    I'm lost for words

    Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice
    I'm speechless and redundant
    'Cause I love you's not enough
    I'm lost for words
    Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice
    I'm speechless and redundant
    'Cause I love you's not enough
    I'm lost for words Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, FRANK E., III WRIGHT, FRANK EDWIN WRIGHT III, MICHAEL PRITCHARD, MIKE DIRNT, MIKE RYAN PRITCHARD, TRE COOL

  • Phoebe from Belchertown, MaI adore this song :) very to the point.
  • Caroline from Long Island, Nythis song is about billie joe trying to express his feelings for Adie, and how he loves her so much, that if he simply told her that, he would feel redundant, it is also about how repetitive fame can be.
  • Sarah from Sandiego, Cathis song is so cool its about how you live your life with your"partner" and youve been together for so long that saying i love you is like a routine. its like a never ending cycle
  • Rob from Castaic, CaThe video for this song is awesome. Extremely clever and amusing. It brings me back to the times when I could watch a Green Day video and not see a little emobitch trying to preach to me.
  • Jason from Willmar, MnWOW!!!!!! this song like sums up my life allways doing the same thing over and over again and it is like a production line...lol...ok not funny but still
  • Eileen from San Diego, Cathis is my favorite song from green day. i love it so much. it reminds me of my "ex" boyfriend and how "i love you" wasn't enough from me. ROCK ON!!!
  • Tanya from London, EnglandBillie Joe : "This song's about repetition and feeling lost in a cycle. When people have been together in a relastionship for a long time, eventually, saying 'I love you' isn't enough. It becomes routine." He wrote this when he and his wife hit a rocky stage in their marriage. A few songs on 'Nimrod' are about that, such as 'The Grouch' which we wrote after an argument with her
