"Suffocate" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Its 3 a.m. I'm drunk again
My head is standing underneath my puke
So make it stop I'm getting off
Make it stop I'm getting off
Sedatives and dizzy smells
And spillin' my guts out all day
And make a piddle
Make it stop I'm getting off
Make it stop I"m getting off
I slipped into a comma once again
Where's my organ donor?
Lend a hand
So when you think you're all alone
No one's left to come around
Drop like flies and empathize
And I know now that I will someday
And I know that I will suffocate
Suffocate, suffocate, suffocate
One night stands and cheap regrets
I take another drag off of my cigarette
So stop I'm getting off
Make it stop I'm getting off
One last stop for one-track, mind ya
Just gimme shelter,gimme
Gimme something
Make it stop I'm getting off
Make it stop I'm getting off
I slipped into a comma once again
Where's my organ?
Don't know, lend a hand
So when you think you're all alone
No one's help to come around
Drop like flies and improvise
And I know now that I will someday
And I know that I will suffocate
Suffocate, suffocate, suffocate
So when you think you're all alone
No one's help to come around
Drop like flies and improvise
And I know now that I will someday
And I know that I will suffocate
And I know now that I will someday
And I know that I will suffocate
Suffocate, suffocate, suffocate

    General CommentI always thought this song was about someone addicted to drugs/alcohol or any sort of substance and he is trying to quit, but doesn't really want to. If he doesn't quit, though, he'll suffocate.

    Green Day rocks hard!

    General CommentI'm with drinkyouroj, I thought it was about some guy who goes to parties and drinks too much and stuff but because he's drunk he doesn't quite comprehend what he's doing...
    Will people stop assuming that all these songs are about girls? That's annoying and presumptuous.

    General CommentI agree drinkyouroj, it's about drugs and alcohal and how people let it control them, but they can't stop because they think they will suffocate.
