"Panic Song" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Ready for a cheap escape
On the brink of self destruction
Widespread panic
Broken glass inside my head
Bleeding down these thoughts of
Anguish... mass confusion
The world is a sick machine
Breeding a mass of shit
With such a desolate conclusion
Fill the void with... I don't care
There's a plague inside of me
Eating at my disposition
Nothing's left
Torn out of reality
Into a state of no opinion
Limp with hate

    General CommentI think it's heading for a cheap escape...but the song rocks! Mike, the bassist wrote it. He's a brilliant lyricist, really underrated in my opinion.

    General CommentI love this song so much, it starts off with just mike on the bass and then it builds for like 2 minutes and gets louder and more intense and its awesome
