Walking contradiction 

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Insomniac)

Intro:
A, D, G, A   x 2

Verse: (A, D, G, A - throughout)
Do as I say not as I do because the shitís so deep you canít run away
I beg to differ and on the contrary I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive and my wallets fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then Iíll hit you again Iím a smart ass but Iím playing dumb

Interlude:
A, D, G, A   x 2

Verse: (A, D, G, A - throughout)
Standards set and broken all the time, control the chaos from behind a gun
Call it as I see it even if I was born deaf, blind and dumb
Losers winning big on the lottery, rehab rejects still sniffing glue
Constant refutation with myself Iím victim of catch 22

Chorus: (D, G, A Ė throughout)
I have no belief
But I believe on the walking contradiction
And, I ainít got no right

Interlude:
A, D, G, A   x 2

Verse: (A, D, G, A - throughout)
Do as I say not as I do because the shitís so deep you canít run away
I beg to differ and on the contrary I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive and my wallets fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then Iíll hit you again Iím a smart ass but Iím playing dumb

Chorus: (D, G, A Ė throughout)
I have no belief
But I believe on the walking contradiction
And, I ainít got no right

D, G, A   x 3

I have no belief
But I believe on the walking contradiction
And, I ainít got no right

I stand laughing on the corner of insignificance

Before it might have made some sense but now itís all fucked up

Interlude:

Verse: (Chord progression same as intro and verse) 
Season change as well as minds and Iím a two faced clown
Youíre mummyís little nightmare driving daddyís car around

I may be dumb but Iím not stupid enough to stay with you

Chorus:

No pride

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Insomniac)

Intro:
G, D, A, D   x 2

Verse: (Same chord progression as intro)
Iím just a mutt and nowhere is my home
Where dignityís a land mine in the school of lost hope
Iíve panhandled for a life and Iím not afraid to beg
Hand me down your lost and founds of second hand regret

Bridge:
A			     B			    C        D  A
You better swallow your pride or youíre gonna choke on it
A			 B		         C     D  A		
You better digest your values because they turn to shit

Chorus:
A			         B                  C			    D
Honourís gonna knock you down before your chance to stand up and fight
E		        D 		           A
I know Iím not the one, Iíve got no pride
 
Verse: (Same chord progression as intro and verse)
Sects of disconnect and traditions of lost faith
No cultureís worth a stream of piss or a bullet in my face
To hell with unity, separationís gonna kill us all
Torn to shreds and disjointed before the final fall

Bridge:
A			     B			    C        D  A
You better swallow your pride or youíre gonna choke on it
A			 B		         C     D  A		
You better digest your values because they turn to shit

Chorus:
A			         B                  C			    D
Honourís gonna knock you down before your chance to stand up and fight
E		        D 		           A
I know Iím not the one, Iíve got no pride, like a rising tide, I got no pride

Westbound sign

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Insomniac)

Lyrics and song progression

Intro:

Verse:
Boxed up, all of her favourite things, sold the rest at a rainy yard sale
Big plans and leaving friends and a westbound sign
Weighed out, her choices on a scale, prevailing nothing made sense
Just transportation and a blank decisionÖ Sheís taking off

Interlude: (Same as intro)

Verse: 
No time and no copping out, sheís burning daylight petrol
Blacked out the rear-view mirror, heading westward on
Strung out on confusion road and ten minute nervous breakdowns
Xanex a beer for thought and she determinedÖ Sheís taking off

Interlude: (Same as intro)

Bridge:
Is it starvation or an escape from discontent
Will she find her name in the California cement
Punched out of the grind that punched her one too many times
Is tragedy two-thousand miles awayÖ Sheís taking off

Interlude: (Same as intro)


She

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Dookie)

Intro:

Verse: (Same as intro)
She, she screams in silence, a sully riot penetrating through her mind 
Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

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

Verse:
She, sheís figured out all her doubts were someone elseís point of view
Waking up this time, to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

Chorus:
D
Are you locked up in a world
 C		             G
that's been planned out for you?
 D
Are you feeling like a social tool

without a use?

When i come around

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Dookie)

Intro:
G, D, E, C  (PC)  x 2 

Verse: (Same as intro)
I heard you crying loud
All the way across town
Youíve been searching for that someone and itís me out on the prowl
As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself
Donít get lonely now 
Dry your whining eyes
Iím just roaming for the moment sleaziní my back yard 
so donít get so uptight about ditching me 
 
Chorus: (A, C   x 2)
No time to search the world around
ĎCause you know where Iíll be found
When I come around 

Verse: (Same as intro and previous verse)
I heard it all before
So donít knock down my door
Iím a loser and a user so I donít need no accuser,
to slag me down because I know Iím right 
So go do what you like
Make sure you do it wise
You may find out that your self doubt means nothing was ever there
You canít go forcing something if itís just not right

No time to search the world around
ĎCause you know where Iíll be found

Castaway

(As recorded by Green Day Ė Warning)

Lyrics

Verse:
I'm on a sentimental journey into sight and sound
Of no return and no looking back or down
A conscientious objector to the was that's in my mind
Well leaving in the lurch and I'm taking back what's mine

Bridge:
I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Into desolation road
Where I'm a

Chorus:
Castaway going at it alone
Castaway now I'm on my own
Castaway going at it alone
Castaway now I'm on my own
Lost and found 
Trouble bound castaway
Verse:
I'm riding on the night train and driving stolen cars
Testing my nerves out on the Boulevard
Spontaneous Combustion in the corners of my mind
Well leaving in the lurch and I'm taking back what's mine

Bridge:
I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
into desolation road
where am I

Chorus:
Castaway going at it alone
Castaway now I'm on my own
Castaway going at it alone
Castaway now I'm on my own
Lost and found 
Trouble bound castaway

And the Cheapskates and the losers
Nothing's left to cling on to
