"Church on Sunday" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives
Tomorrow is too late to pretend
Everything's all right
I'm not getting any younger as long as you don't get any older
I'm not going to state that yesterday never was

Bloodshot deadbeat and lack of sleep
Making your mascara bleed
Tears down your face
Leaving traces of mistakes

If I promise to go to church on Sunday
Will you go with me on Friday night?
If you live with me, I'll die for you
And this compromise

I hereby solemnly swear to tell the whole truth
And nothing but the truth is what I'll ever hear from you
"Trust" is a dirty word that comes only from such a liar
But "respect" is something I will earn...
If you have faith

    General CommentJesus H. Fucking Christ, Billie isn't jewish. Some of you go off on the most bizarre tangents at times.

    As to the meaning, here it is from the horse's mouth:
    In a NY Rock interview from 2000 Billie says,
    "Church on Sunday deals with compromises in the relationship I have with my wife. You have to compromise in every relationship. If you want it to work out you've always got to look ahead, have a future in front of your eyes and work on your relationships, no matter if they're with your partner or with friends. There will always be problems, but you've got to find solutions, or at least try to find solutions. I really hope there is a solution for every problem".

    Here's the URL if you want to read the whole thing.
