"Scattered" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
I've got some scattered pictures lying on my bedroom floor.
Reminds me of the times we shared.
Makes me wish that you were here.
Now it seems I've forgotten my purpose in this life.
All the songs have been erased.
Guess I've learned from my mistakes.
Open the past and present.
Now and we are there.
Story to tell and I am listening.
Open the past and present.
And the future too.
It's all I've got and I'm giving it up to you.
Loose ends tied in knots.
Leaving a lump down in my throat.
Gagging on a souvenir.
Lodged to fill another year.
Drag it on and on until my skin is ripped to shreds.
Leaving myself open wide.
Living out a sacrifice.
If you got no one and I've got no place to go, would it be alright?
Could it be alright?

    General Commentthis song is perfect.... it reminds me of my girlfriend, how i know when it ends all i'm gonna have is memories "scattered pictures lying on my bedroom floor"
    or the refrain when he says "..... it's all i have and i'm givin it to you" it makes me think of how all the small things are making the difference to her... and i am so in love....yeah so anyway, i wish more people liked this gon, or green day for that matter, they truly are one of the greater bands of the last decade and a half

    General CommentIs kind of living of thinking very often of the past. This is my song... It reminds me of one of my best friends, now we do not see that often and that just sucks! so yes is like looking at pictures or photos and ask that person if she wants to try it again.
    green day is awesome
