"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 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.
