"Jinx" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
I fucked up again, it's all my fault
So turn me around and face the wall
And read me my rights and tell me I am wrong
Until it gets into my thick skull

A slap on the wrist
A stab in the back
Torture me, I've been a bad boy
Nail me to the cross and tell me you have won
I lost before I did any wrong

(Whoa-Oh-oh)

I'm hexed with regrets and bad luck
So keep your distance, it's rubbing off
Or you will be damned to spend your life in hell
On Earth with me tangled at your feet
You finally met your nemesis
Disguised as your fatal long-lost love
So kiss it goodbye
Until death do we part
You fell for a jinx for crying out loud

I'm a curse hangin' around you
I'm a curse hangin' around you
I'm a curse hangin' around you
I'm a curse hangin' around you

    General Comment"Im discontented around you"?
    "Im malcontented around you"?
    I got no idea what's at the end really.
    I like the "whoo" after the first verse, but I find myself waiting for "Haushinka" when I listen to this song.

    General CommentI'm fairly sure it says "I'm a curse hanging around you." Only because it makes mroe sense given the context, but I can hardly tell.

    jimmytremor, where did you hear for sure that it was 'ghost'?

    General Commentstrange song... i like it though xD

    it's possibly about a girl who liked billie but he didn't like her.
    "You finally met you nemesis disguised as your fatal long lost love" i.e. you think you love me but you don't know me...

    any other ideas...?
