Alright, so we all know 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' - it's one of Green Day's most popular songs, and you're bound to know it whether you're a devoted fan of Green Day or not. Of course, most people don't take the time to look for the meaning behind it, and when September ends every year, they joke about it. I wasn't one of those people, though I have seen some getting frustrated about it. I looked for the meaning behind the song, and and would like to contribute my point of view on how people treat it and how they joke about it every October 1st.

Now, I'm not sure if this article has been done yet, so feel free to tell me if it has been done so, and I'll take it down or something.

The Meaning of the Song: Green Day's lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong, wrote the song about his father's death. His father had died of cancer on September 1, 1982. On his funeral, Billie cried and ran home, locking himself in his room. His mother came home sometime later and when she knocked on his door, all Billie said was "Wake me up when September ends," which became the title for the 11th song in their album, American Idiot.

Lyrics For 21st Century Breakdown album got lyrics off A-Z lyrics but checked them with the words in the booklet in cd, if I got some lyrics wrong please tell me and I will correct them as soon as I can.

SONG OF THE CENTURY

Sing us a song of the century
That's louder than bombs and eternity
The era of statistic and contraband
That's leading us to the promised land
Tell us a story that's by candlelight
Waging a war and losing the fight

They're playing the song of the century
Of panic and promise and prosperity
Tell me a story into that goodnight

Sing us a song for me

ACT I HEROES AND CONS

21st CENTURY BREAKDOWN

Born into Nixon I was raised in hell
A welfare child
Where the teamsters dwelled
The last one born
And The first one to run
My town was blind from refinery sun

[Pre-chorus:]
My generation is zero

Green Day in my opinion is not just a band. They are my way of showing who I am. They're music has a way of helping me to express myself. Every morning I wake up and think, yes, I get to listen to Green Day today. My friends call me crazy for loving a band that isn't heard on 101.1 wixx (a pop music station)but if Green Day was on one of those stations, I would be very suprised. Green Day isn't part of the pop generation. But that's why I love them. They aren't afraid to speak their mind. I could keep typing this article for a very long time, but I think you get what I'm saying. I love Green Day, so much I can't explain it in words. Nothing can explain my love for Green Day.

Green Day.
I'll go for miles
Till I find you
You say you want to leave me
But you can't choose
I've gone thru pain
Every day and night
I feel my mind is going insane
Something I can't fight

Don't leave me
Don't leave me

A blank expression
Covering your face
I'm looking for directions
For out of this place
I start to wonder
If you'll come back
I feel the rain storming after thunder
I can't hold back

Don't leave me

I'll go for miles
Till I find you
You say you want to leave me
But you can't choose
I've gone thru pain
Every day and night
I feel my mind is going insane
Something I can't fight

Don't leave me

Hey there lookin' at me
Tell me what do you see
But you quickly turn your head away
Try to find the words I could use
Don't have the courage to come up to you
My chance is looking a bit grey

Starting across the room
Are you leaving soon?
I just need a little time

What is it that drives me mad
Girls like you that I never had
What is it about you that I adore?
What makes me feel so much pain?
That makes me go so insane
What is it about you that I adore?

Starting across the room
Are you leaving soon?
I just need a little time

Why did you have to leave so soon?
Why did you have to walk away?
Oh well it happened again
She walked away with her boyfriend
Maybe we'll meet again someday.

Staring out of my window
Watching the cars go rolling by
My friends are gone
I've got nothing to do
So I sit here patiently
Watching the clock tick so slowly
Gotta get away
Or my brains will explode

Give me something to do to kill some time
Take me to that place that I call home
Take away the strains of being lonely
Take me to the tracks at Christie Road

See the hills from afar
Standing on my beat up car
The sun went down and the night fills the sky
Now I feel like me once again
As the train comes rolling in
Smoked my boredom gone
Slapped my brains up so high

Give me something to do to kill some time
Take me to that place that I call home
Take away the strains of being lonely
Take me to the tracks at Christie Road

Mother stay out of my way of that place we go
We'll always seem to find our way to Christie Road

Dear mother,
Can you hear me whining?
It's been three whole weeks
Since that I have left your home
This sudden fear has left me trembling
Cause now it seems that I am out here on my own
And I'm feeling so alone

Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes
Some call it the slums
Some call it nice
I want to take you through
a wasteland I like to call my home
Welcome To Paradise

A gunshot rings out at the station
Another urchin snaps and left dead on his own
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's now
Feeling like my home
And I'm never gonna go

Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes
Some call it slums
Some call it nice
I want to take you through
a wasteland I like to call
my home
Welcome To Paradise

Dear mother,
Can you hear me laughing

Juliet's trying to find out what she wants, but she don't know
Experience has got her down
Look this direction, I know it's not perfection, it's just me...
I want to bring you up again now

Cause' I'm losing what's left of my dignity
A small price to pay to see that you're happy
Forget all the disappointments you have faced
Open up your worried world and let me in

Juliet's crying cause now she's realizing love can be
Filled with pain and distrust
I know I am crazy, and a bit lazy
But I will try to bring you up again now

Cause' I'm losing what's left of my dignity
A small price to pay to see that you're happy
Forget all the disappointments you have faced

Juliet's crying cause now she's realizing love can be
Filled with pain and distrust
I know I am crazy, and a bit lazy

I sit alone in my bedroom
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding
My love is yearning

I hold my breath and close my eyes and...
Dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away
Years Away!

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter,
We laugh together

I hold my breath and close my eyes and...
Dream about her
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my malakite so tight so...
Never let go
Cause she's 2000 light years away
Years Away!

I lock myself inside my room
I WANNA BE ALONE
With you around, you'll only add on
I WANNA BE ALONE
Its been disturbed by my thoughts
I WANNA BE ALONE
With you around, you'll only add on
I WANNA BE ALONE

Please don't think I'm crazy
I don't want you to understand
My mind is growing hazy
To hell with your helping hand
Why don't you just leave me alone
This conflict is my own
Keep your sources away from me
That's all

I lock myself inside my room

Sitting in my room last night
Staring at the mirror
I couldn't find a reason why
I couldn't be near her

'Cause you are the one that started
To make me feel this way
And every night I'm thinking
About the words you'd say

Pictures going through my mind
When we're together
All these long and sleepless nights
Will I ever get better

'Cause you are the one that started
To make me feel this way
And every night I'm thinking
About the words you'd say
'Cause you are THE ONE THAT I WANT

Now you know how I feel
This love is forever
You make my life seem so unreal
Will I ever get better? ...

'Cause you are the one that started
To make me feel this way
And every night I'm thinking
About the words you'd say
'Cause you are THE ONE THAT I WANT

I wish I could tell you
But the words would come out wrong
Oh if you only knew
The way I felt for so long
I know that we're worlds apart
But I just don't seem to care
These feelings in my heart
Only with you I want to share

The first time I caught a glimpse of you
Then my thoughts were only of you

I hope that when time goes by
You will think the same about me
Many nights awake I lie
I only wish that you could see
I know that we're only friends
I hope this feeling never ends
If I could only hold you
It's the only thing I want to do.

The first time I caught a glimpse of you
Then my thoughts were only of you

Late last night I had a dream
And she was in it again
She and I were in the sky
Flying hand in hand
I woke up in a cold sweat
Wishing she was by my side
Praying that she'll dry tears
Left on my face I've cried

Oh I love her
Keep dreaming of her
Will I understand
If she wants to be my friend

I'll send a letter to that girl
Asking her to be my own
But my pen is writing wrong
So I'll say it in a song
Oh I love you more right now
More than I've ever loved before
Here's those words straight from these lips
I'll need you forever more.

Oh I love her
Keep dreaming of her
Will I understand
If she wants to be my friend

Oh I love her
Keep dreaming of her
Will I understand
If she wants to be my friend

Come ease the pain that's in my heart...
Come ease the pain that's in my heart...
Come ease the pain that's in my heart...

So this is my first article here... enjoy!

Green Day. If you haven’t heard of the punk-rock band from Oakland who produced great albums that selled over 30 million copies worldwide, chances are that you live under a rock. In over 20 years, Green Day has changed the image of music greatly, and has still managed to be one of the most popular artists of today, despite being nearly in their forties and ‘old-school’.

But lately many pop, rap, and RnB artists have taken the spotlight in music. Green Day is still famous, but their triumphs cannot capture the attention of the greater audience over the autotuned infamy that is Ke$ha, boob machines Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and African-American rappers who lean heavily on songs about banging women. Cue me screaming, “What the fuck is wrong with kids today?!”

It seems to me that Green Day is the only decent mainstream artist in the past several years. And it’s not because they pulled crazy stunts that landed them in magazines. Not because their songs get stuck in people’s heads, whether they want it to or not. It’s because they earned their place. They work hard on every album,...

Its kinda funny how i forgot about somthing that i used to love so much.! Somthing tht put fun and light in my life. I forgot about Green Day. D: Now imma go back to tell you the story of my life. :D When i was little i always loved music i picked up my grandmothers gutair just to screw around with the strings.! and on the soda cans i would make music with the tabs hitting the tin. :D I would play my music loud blasting it loud.! Every day and have it playing at night.! I never payed attention to the artist though. Until one afternoon i was laying by my bookcase when i heard this amazing sounding song. "I walk this empty street on the boulidvard of broken dreams" Thts the first line i heard. I sat up and even though i didnt know the words i sang to it. When the song was over i remember hearing "That was Green Day with their newest song Boulivard Of Broken Dreams" I never heard the song again for a while. I forgot the song name a week later. But the band name played over and over in my head Green Day. Later in 3rd grade i met some friends Alayna and Bianca we later became best friends. I remember staying up all nite saying things like "So whats your favorite band.?" i would always...

Mike Dirnt focused on his bass :)
In 2004, my thirteen year old self watched MTV, when a song came on. The video was mostly green, and I noticed three guys standing there. The song then started, and right after the first riff I knew that I loved this song. I immediately googled the band, only to discover that they had been around for quite some time. I started hearing more about them as their popularity grew, and I got into their old stuff as well, resulting in a purchase of various albums. From that moment on I knew that I wanted to see this band live. When I watched Bullet in a Bible and saw what a spectacular show they put on I told myself that I have to experience that one day. Well, now, six years later, my dream finally came true.

Green Day came to Prague just two days ago, on June 29th. Waiting around in unbearable heat and direct sunlight for more than six hours definitely paid off, as I ended up very close to stage. I had direct view of Billie Joe, Mike, and Tre. When they first came up on stage I couldn't believe that I was actually standing there, watching them live, listening to their perfect music. I swear to God, it felt like a dream. Even though I was tired after all the waiting and the...

Dear Billie, Tre and Mike;

I don't know if this message will reach you. But according to your concert last year in Thailand, I think you deserve to know what's really going on in this country. I don't want anything else but to share it with you three who seem likely to care what I'm about to say.

First of all, I love this D.A.M.N country... no matter what. But now I wish I were somewhere else. I wish to leave... that M.O.T.H.E.R FCK'r RED SHRIT MOB. They say they want justice & democracy but what they're doing is beyond crazy... Who the FCK they think they are? Just a FCKin' I.D.I.OT. MOB w/ the BIG POCKET MONEY who's destroying their OWN country... LEGALLY! Still, Every FCKin' one let them... DO AS THEY PLEASE... All disasters are happening right now caused by that FCKin' RED SHIRT. All in all, they want nothing more than that their BIG FCKin' BOSS to retrieve his power... ABSOLUTE POWER w/ no more trials... NO GUILTY, plus refunding the SIZED MONEY HE'D CORRUPTED>>> These are what they truly call JUSTICE.
