"No Pride" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
I'm just a mutt
And nowhere is my home
Where dignity's a land mine
In the school of lost hope
I've panhandled for a life because
I'm not afraid to beg
Hand me down your lost and founds
Of second hand regret
You better swallow your pride
Or you're gonna choke on it
You better digest your values
Because they turn to shit
Honor's gonna knock you down
Before your chance to stand up and fight
I know I'm not the one
I got no pride
Sects of disconnection
And traditions of lost faith
No culture's worth a stream of piss
Or a bullet in my face
To hell with unity
Separation's gonna kill us all
Torn to shreds and disjointed
Before the final fall

    General Commenti think its to do with a lack of pride in his country
    'no CULTURES worth a stream of a piss or a BULLET IN MY FACE' i think he's sayin his country's not worth fighting for

    General CommentNo comments!!!! I can't believe that, this song is a true masterpiece. It's the best lyrics billie joe has ever written, imo. One of insomniac's many moments of genius.

    General CommentYup. Insomniac was a huge step up from Dookie maturity wise, the lyrics just got so much stronger and just plain better.

    General CommentI have all Green Day cds except Shenanigans. But I got Insomniac in like 98' and lost it in 99' or sumthin. and the other day I was wandering through my, "The Eagles" cds and inside one of the cases, was the insomniac CD! I was so exicted, I listened to it for like 8 straight dayz. It is definately the 2nd best Green Day cd ever (1039 SOSH was the best) No Pride is my FAVOURITEST song ever, thank you for letting me rant

    General Commenti have every green day cd except for International Superhits. the reason i dont have it is because there's only two songs on it that that i don't have on other cds and because it's their most expensive cd wherever i go.
