Green Day – X-Kid Lyrics 6 years ago
I think this song is about someone (maybe Billie Joe writing about himself when he was younger) who hasn't learnt to grow up and is living on past glories to get him through his maturing life. He's woke up late one day, and he's come to a realisation that he's not so young anymore and he doesn't have the intelligence to enter the real world. He used to be a prodigy, a kid with real potential but he "never got started again". I think what i'm saying is summed up in the first verse:

Hey, little kid
Did you wake up late one day and
You're not so young, but you're still dumb
And you're numb to your old glory but now it's gone.
