"Brutal Love" as written by and Sam Cooke/billie Joe Armstrong....
Turn out the lights
Close your eyes
Turn up the silence
The heartache of your life
Dance forever
Under the lights
This brutal love

Oh, how you want it
You're begging for it
But you can't have it
Even if you tried
It's in the clutches
In my hands of
This brutal love

Old toys
This plastic heart
Loners and fools are tearing me apart
Here comes trouble
The uninvited
This brutal love

Danger
Not quite at home
The eyes of temptation
The flesh and my bones
Hello stranger
I'm a disaster
This brutal love

Bad luck
Bitters and soda
Anguish and shame
The modern fool
Bad sex
Buy me a train wreck
Something for my troubled mind

Bad luck
Bitters and soda
Anguish and shame
The modern fool

Bad love
Kiss me I’m roded
Something for my troubled mind

Drop out
Drop-dead hideous
How low is this brutal love
Drop out
Drop-dead hideous
How low is this brutal love
Drop out
Drop-dead hideous
How low is this brutal love
Drop out
Drop-dead hideous
How low is this brutal love
This brutal love

    My InterpretationI think this song is about screwing up a love when you weren't ready to let go. You try to sleaze yourself around, but it never works, because it doesn't feel the same. You feel really depressed and everyone seems so ignorant because they're happy and you're brokenhearted.

    General CommentI think that this is a song about unrequited love or about event that will never happen to you and you can do nothing about it. You feel despair and hopelessness. And all you can do is cry or sing such a song, cause all you want is impossible.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about how hard love can be. especially when your confused and not ready for it. It's about all the mixed emotions in a dying relationship.
