  • She
    She screams in silence
    A sullen riot penetrating through her mind
    Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

    Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you?
    Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?
    Scream at me until my ears bleed
    I'm taking heed just for you

    She
    She's figured out
    All her doubts were someone else's point of view
    Waking up this time to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

    Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you?
    Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?
    Scream at me until my ears bleed
    I'm taking heed just for you

    Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you?
    Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?
    Scream at me until my ears bleed
    I'm taking heed just for you Writer/s: Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Iii Wright, Michael Pritchard

  • Stephen H from San Antonio, TxOk, this is all just a little crazy, but wtf, why does all of this seem to be about my life too? I'm quite perplexed!
  • Abigail from San Diego This song was actually written for Amanda, his ex gf who moved away and she is my aunt.
  • Caroline from Long Island, NyOk, I have a theory, and you can tell me I'm wrong, that I am stupid, or any variation that strikes your fancy, but, I believe that, Maria, She, SHE's a rebel, and whatsername are all the same person, now thats just my two cents, until next time, good night and good luck
  • Sam from Christchurch, New Zealandmaddy from germany, the song she wasn't written for or about adrienne it was written about his gf before he married adrienne
    billie joe said this in an interview for Vh1:

    Vh1-How much of Dookie is a love letter to your wife Adrienne?

    Billie Joe: There really weren't any songs about her at that time. A lot of the songs are about this girl from San Diego, who went to Cal Berkeley. Adrienne and I weren't going out at the time. We lost contact with each other for about a year. She got engaged to a guy in Minneapolis. Then I got involved with this other girl. I lived in the basement in Berkeley with all these guys from the East Bay and she lived upstairs in the apartment. We ended up having this year-long relationship. The song "She" was about her.
  • Eileen from San Diego, Cathis is a GREAT song, but it didn't become that popular as any of the other songs by green day. But they r still the best band out there..

  • Liz from Massapequa, Nyi read that this was written in response to a letter given to billie joe by an ex-girlfriend

  • Bundy from Houston, TxI, too, particularly enjoy the lyrics. And although the 90's are over steph, I continue to feel like a social tool without a use. I am still waiting for a sign to smash the silence with a brick of self control.
