"409 in Your Coffee Maker" as written by and Billie Joe/kiffmeyer Armstrong....
I sit in the state of a daydream
With all of your words flying over my head
Even more time gets wasted
In a daze

It should seem obvious to you
Your screams and cries are never going to work
And all of your time gets wasted
In my daze

[Chorus:]
And I'm looking back now
At where I have gone wrong
And why I could not seem to get along
My interests are longing
To break from these chains
These chains that control
My future's aim

I sit in the state of a daydream
With all of your words flying over my head
Even more time gets wasted
In a daze

Maybe I'm just too damn lazy
Or maybe I was just brainwashed to think that way
And all of your time gets wasted
In my daze

[Chorus]

I'm looking
Back now at
Where I have
Have gone wrong
And why I
Could not seem
Could not seem
To get along

[Chorus]

    General Commentit's some powerful all-pupose cleaner...which is awesome of him (them?) putting some in the teacher's coffee!! (so I still feel (a little!!) sorry for the teacher...)
    it's okay not to know!!!!(i didn't either until i discovered that song...i was feeling so stupid...until i found out that people around me didn't not it either then i just decided to SEARCH the meaning...
    i typed 409+all purpose on Google (cause i knew it was something all pupose but didn't know what EXACTLY...)
    ANYWAY...i love that song!! i love Green Day, actually...everything coming from them is good!!!

    General Commenti got the impressions, while sitting in math class bored out of my mind, that he wrote this song about being bored in class, and the teacher's words just flying over him and no matter how much they yell at him to do his work, he doesnt, and his talents are wasting away, being controlled by chains, the chains that control his future's aim..which is, being a rock star.

    General Commentthis song has two meanings
    the first one is just about daydreaming since all of the green day members love to daydream
    the second meaning is just how billie joe put 409 in his teachers coffee maker....which i would love to do someday.......

    rock on green day
