"Transistors Gone Wild" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
This is age of make-believe
Or a reality series
Television, murder city
Dreaming of tomorrow
Am I alive or fantasy?

Give me murder give me loss
Turn the cities into dust man

My brain is melting
And it smells like a volcano

Japanimation surgery
Drinking nuclear energy
Reservoir spewing toxic
Shout!
There's no tomorrow
Drinking nuclear energy

Give me murder give me loss
Turn the cities into dust man

My brain is melting
And it smells like a volcano

Give me murder give me loss
Transistors
Transistors gone wild

    General CommentThis song is so good and so original! I love the lyrics to this one. Shame it only lasts just over a minute. Still, one of my definite faves from the album.

    General CommentHas anybody else noticed there's a line in this song that's pretty much the same as one in "American Idiot"?
    "television, murder city
    dreaming of tomorrow"
    and "television dreams of tomorrow"
    Oh yea, and yesterday I checked out The Network's website and it says "cumming soon", so perhaps there could be another album soon.

    General Commentgreat song but the melodic line in the verse is very similar to 'outsider' by the ramones. (where dee dee sings 1min 5 seconds)

    General CommentYo, Fruitcake and Pete...The word is "influence", guys. As in BJ is a musical f*cking genius who has been influenced by others who are musically inclined. F*ckface.
