The Forgotten

  • Where in the world’s the forgotten?
    They’re lost inside your memory
    You’re dragging on, your heart’s been broken
    As we all go down in history

    Where in the world did the time go?
    It’s where your spirit seems to roam
    Like losing faith to our abandon
    Or an empty hallway from a broken home

    Well don’t look away from the arms of a bad dream
    Don’t look away, sometimes you’re better lost than to be seen

    I don’t feel strange, it’s more like haunted
    Another moment trapped in time
    I can’t quite put my finger on it
    But it’s like a child that was left behind

    So where in the world’s the forgotten?
    Like soldiers from a long lost war
    We share the scars from our abandon
    And what we remember becomes folklore

    Well, don’t look away from the arms of a bad dream
    Don’t look away, sometimes you’re better lost than to be seen
    Don’t look away from the arms of a moment
    Don’t look away from the arms of tomorrow
    Don’t look away from the arms of a moment
    Don’t look away from the arms of love Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, MIKE DIRNT, TRE COOL
