I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's only me, and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk alone

I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, and I walk a

My shadow's only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and every thing's all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone and I walk a

My shadow's only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah

I walk alone, and I walk a

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one, and I walk a

My shadow's only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

    General CommentThe age of paranoia! That's right Billy.

    American truth and integrity has been compromised by the Bush Administration’s, fear instilled propaganda and 9-11 lies. This country needs to get together and work on some demonstrations of protest. The addenda in Iraq is pure selfishness, meaning that Bush and his vermin are fighting like hell to get oil out of the ground that doesn't belong to him---its all about him, his failed oil business losses and what he owes, but not about America.

    His administration's ability to lie and manipulate are evident in his false reasoning for the invasion; weapons of mass destruction were never found. No intelligent leader will send young men and women off to war because of a hunch. He used that as a scare tactic.

    If he'd come clean and said, "Listen American, war is good for the economy and I need the oil, so lets invade", which is the truth, I wonder how the country would have reacted? I for one would have at least respected his position of power more than I do now. No, I don't want to be an American idiot...but we all are, lets face it. Liars like Bush and the vermin who put this alcoholic, academic loser back in office cannot be trusted. But we can't finger anyone of the vermin can we ? I didn't vote for him.... did any of you who are over 18 vote for him? Did your parents vote for him ? I don't know many who did vote for him.

    “Terrorism alert" is also a Bush media propaganda joke and effort to make us American idiots feel justified in just about anything done against Iraq, being they were our enemy since 1991s Gulf War and probably were supporting Al Queida. We had no right to go over there and get involved in ‘91 anymore than we do now. The color-coded terror alert system-- now how stupid is that ? Yes, American idiots we going about day to day believing everything we are told, which are lies, lies, lies. What was he really trying to say? Be afraid America but I'm going to save you by getting rid of nuclear weapons in Iraq. HA ! Losing liar Bush.

    Service Men and Women:
    Thank you for being there and helping our economy stay strong, which is a good thing. Still, I wish you were all here working and paying taxes or going to school instead of being a Bush guided idiot mobile. I love you guys, I just don't think you belong there fighting one man's war and being there because of lies told to us all, propaganda that killed your comrades and many innocent civilian Iraqis, including old people and kids who died from the Bush mobile. Yes, I love you guys, the Army, Navy, and Airforce, Bush has turned you and your buddies into idiots. Let’s stop believing in his crap.

    I think Billy is saying WAKE UP AMERICA ! Don't be an American Idiot.

    The following is purely theoretical and based on opinions and research done by some free men in this country.

    Suppose this war all about the Bushs’ failed oil business and not American safe--, being that war is good for the economy is just an added bonus for his initial plan. It’s not really about the good of the American public. If it were true, we'd at least be paying cheaper gas prices by now I wonder where our cut of Bushes cruel addenda is ? Well there is none, because now he’s going to get oil from our armies, put it in his companies, and make up pay higher at the pumps to get his debts paid off.. Yes, Bush is letting our young men kill themselves, babies and old people so he can pay off the stock holders in his failed business.

    Bush is also an American Idiot because he could have never gotten elected on his own without the help of a corrupt bunch of losers. So much for the right to vote....don't waste your time anymore American, because any corrupt group of vermin in a high place can now fix that election to meet their own purpose. It's not a people's country anymore. We've been scammed. Stay home Election Day, your right to vote is a farce. Bush and his vermin committee think that many of us are not on to him...we are...Green Day is on to him. What do we do about him. Bush and Cheney should be fired and replaced with a democratic administration. The election system should be overseen and selection the same way we select our juries, by their nonbiased opinions--and should be sworn to secrecy just like our juries are sworn. It's your duty as an American Citizen to vote, but since the vermin in higher places knows we are American Idiots and not entitled therefore, they allow into office whom they choose and not us. We need to be able to take control of our own elections. Bush is an alcoholic and a really bad student...WE all know we didn't vote for him. Why don't people examine our voting system and SCREAM for reform. A revolution is nigh in this country. Liars, scammers, cheats...Bush was never suppose to be president but was put back in teh white hours by vermin who needed him to finish that oil stealing project that began back in 91.

    The Bushes are friends with the Bin Ladin Family, and the Bushes probably owe them TONS of money since they were major stock holders in Bushs' oil company that he ran into bankruptcy. Yes, the Bin Ladin's were major players and stock Holders in that business from what I have heard.

    American Idiots like us need propaganda to allow him to ride out his addenda on the backs of our youth. Like throwing American on its belly at the top of Mt Everest and riding it down on a blanket of fear. When we get ot the bottom, America will be battered and broken but Bush is hoping to be counting his bills and handing some back to the Bin Ladins, as he walks off into the sunset, clean, dry, and unscathed. American idiots, that's what he thinks we are !

    Journalists are also AMERICAN Idiots

    The media has made it hard for children to feel safe, by turning every child murder into a circus and every pedophile into a star ! God help us how the freedom of the press has been used against the American people. Where Michael Jackson's insane behavior gets 20/20 Barbara Walter coverage and journalists would die to get inside the court room if they were allowed, to hear all the grimy and disgusting details of MJs boy obsession. Freedom of the press has been perverted into a greedy avenue where selfish and non-thinking journalists can further their careers by sensationalizing insane people and events. These news items should be reported accurately and responsibly for the sake of our kids. Journalists have become the predators, whose green make them almost no better than any of the predators that they make us think are driving down every street in America.

    I believe in teaching our kids to be street smart but not blowing the threat out of proportion. The media has turned all of our communities and friends, our own neighbors into potential pedophiles and predators. Who do we trust anymore on our blocks? That's what Green Day means in this song.
