"Armatage Shanks" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Stranded...lost inside myself
My own worst friend
My own closest enemy
Never trusted anyone
Let alone myself
I must insist
On being a pessimist
I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind
Elected the rejected
I perfected the science of the idiot
No meaning...no healing
Self loathing freak and introverted deviate

    General CommentYes, the Finnish girl is right: what does "deviot" mean? I found Deviot is a village in New Zealand and a Power Ranger protagonist, but I don't think it refers to that... -.-

    P.S.: the missing word beside "Wooh" could be "singularly" o "singulary"? But I'm not sure it makes sense...

    General CommentI looked into the toilet thing (cause I have no life) and Armitage Shanks is a company that makes bathrooms. If you want proof or you just like toilets you can see their website at armitage-shanks.co.uk Yeah, I'll leave now before I say something else really stupid.

    General Commentthats maybe where he got the name for the song, but i dont think hes singing about a toilet. i think its about being alone, insecure and not very social.
