"Castaway" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
I'm on a sentimental journey
Into sight and sound
Of no return and no looking back or down
A conscientious objector to the
War that's in my mind
Leaving in the lurch and I'm
Taking back what's mine

I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
(where I'm a...)

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

I'm riding on the night train and
Driving stolen cars
Testing my nerves out on the blvd.
Spontaneous combustion in the
Corners of my mind
Leaving in the lurch
And I'm taking back what's mine

I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
(where I'm a...)

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

    General CommentI've been a fan of Green Day for almost 8 years now. In that time period, I've seen everything from early Dookie to their recent stuff. Though personally, I love everything before Nimrod, (though everything by Green Day is great), but I have to commend Green Day on writing the material for Warning. It must have taken a lot of gusts to be totally different and try new things in the studio. People say they suck now, or that they are not punk anymore, but did you ever notice they are still fucking old Green Day live? I respect them for trying something different in the studio. This song is definately one of the better songs off of Warning in my opinion...add a little more distortion and you have a song off of Nimrod!

    General CommentI think every song on Warning is great. Because it shows that they have grown up and matured, also, the lyrics have gotten less and less about teen angst and girls, to more mature subjects. I love it.

    General CommentIt is really spooky how this song sums up what my friend recently went through. He is a naval officer, and had to leave his hometown and cruise around the world on a destroyer. It's like they looked at his situation and came up with this kickass song.
