"Jaded" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Somebody keep my balance
I think I'm falling off
Into a state of regression
The expiration date
Rapidly coming up
It's leaving me behind to rank

Always move forward
Going straight will get you nowhere
There is no progress
Evolution killed it all
I found my place in nowhere

I'm taking one step sideways
Leading with my crutch
Got a fucked up equilibrium
Count down from nine to five
Hooray
We're gonna die
Blessed into our extinction

Always move forward
Going straight will get you nowhere
There is no progress
Evolution killed it all
I found my place in nowhere

Always move forward
Going straight will get you nowhere
There is no progress
Evolution killed it all
I found my place in nowhere

In nowhere, in nowhere

    General CommentOverindulging in drugs for sensational feelings leaves you with a bad comedown, returning to being normal and sober but with added feelings of despair. Drugs only last for so long until the high is up and the after effects kick in, left with the feeling of being different from society.

    Progression in life doesn't mean you have to be a generic obedient citizen, it's simply progression of yourself. There is no God or afterlife, so what's the point of living? Being in a pleasurable state of mind may be what you're content with as oppose to succeeding in life.

    Thinking outside of the box with inspiration from drugs, meanwhile emotions are being played with severely. The common person is a slave to the trade five days a week for a third of the day, wasting the little time we have on earth working for somebody else to get rich off of your duties.

    General Commentits like we're all jaded...we all are born, go to school, get a 9 to 5, retire, and die, more or less returning to where we started from (going straight will get you nowhere).

    General Commenti early said it was fod, but maybe this is my fav gd song. i cant believe i'm only the 5th fucking post. this little minute and half song has so much meaning. all at the same time, its about being jaded as in stoned, being jaded as in depresed, and has the meaning that smallthoughts created (hadnt thought of that before). it's got such a good beat and its awesome how brain stew transitions right into jaded
