"She" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Iii Wright and Michael Pritchard....
She
She screams in silence
A sullen roit penetrating through her mind
Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self control

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

She
She's figured out
All her doubts were someone else's point of view
Waking up this time to smash the silence with the brick of self control

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

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

    General Commentthis is the song about my life... My parents have always wanted me to achieve all the things they never achieved... All my dreams and goals that I thought were really mine, turned out to be theirs... they implanted everything into me... and one day I realized that no, this is not what I want.

    General Commentahhh remember when the radio would play songs that were not singles off albums? They sure as hell did that with Dookie, and deservedly so. Too bad all we hear nowadays is the same 5 songs that we already hear on MTV, mountain dew commercials, and every other room in a college dorm.

    General Commentthis song was such a turning point in my life... the girl in this song WAS me... every word of the song completely describes how i was... the first time i heard it, i knew i had finally been saved. yes, i know how corny it is, but it's true. just listening to billie joe saying "scream at me, until my ears bleed, i'm taking heed JUST FOR YOU" it was the first time i ever felt like someone out there understood what i was feeling... haha im so pathetic... but i owe every ounce of the confidence i have in myself today, to green day. dookie saved my life. (yeah it sounds deep and emotional but dont worry i dont take them too seriously... i took their "fuck you" attitude to heart and that has made all the difference :) ) i'm happy again, thank you green day!

    General Commenti think its about someone with a lack of self-confidence, everyone always putting her down, so much that she starts believing them but then realizes that she doesn't have to care what they think and finally makes a break through in her own life and sees things the way she wants to. just my thought though.. everyones opinion seems to fit well

    General CommentI think this song is probably the other side of the conversation with "Basket Case".

    Not explicitly, but that's the subject matter.

    General Commentthis is an amazn song love it i gess it's like about a girl paranoid about wat otha people think probly been hurt by too many people. now mayb she gets away from those people and realises that she doesn't have to care wat they think. that every time she hated herself it was bcos they told her she wasn't good enuf.
    don't eva change urself 4 other people cos u will neva b happy
