21st Century Breakdown Songtext
von Green Day

21st Century Breakdown Songtext

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

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

My generation is zero
I never made it as a working class hero

21st century breakdown
I once was lost, but never was found
I think I′m losing what's left of my mind
To the 20th century deadline

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

I was made of poison and blood
Condemnation is what I understood
Video games through the towers′ fall
Homeland security could kill us all

My generation is zero
I never made it as a working class hero


21st century breakdown
I once was lost, but never was found
I think I'm losing what's left of my mind
To the 20th century deadline

We are the class of, the class of ′13
Born in the era of humility
We are the desperate in the decline
Raised by the bastards of 1969

My name is no one, the long lost son
Born on the Fourth of July
Raised through the era of heroes and cons
That left me for dead or alive

I am a nation, a worker of pride (hey!)
My debt to the status quo
The scars on my hands and a means to an end
It′s all that I have to show

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

I swallowed my pride, and I choked on my faith
I've given my heart and my soul
I′ve broken my fingers and lied through my teeth
The pillar of damage control


I've been to the edge, and I′ve thrown the bouquet (hey!)
Of flowers left over from the grave
I've sat in the waiting room wasting my time
And waiting for judgment day

I praise liberty
The freedom to obey
Is the song that strangles me
Well, don′t cross the line

Oh, dream, America, dream
I can't even sleep
From the light's early dawn
Oh, scream, America, scream
Believe what you see
From heroes and cons
