Starry nights city lights
Coming down over me
Skyscrapers, stargazers in my head
Are we we are, are we we are
The waiting unknown
This dirty town was burning down in my dreams
Lost and found, city bound in my dreams

And screaming
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
And screaming
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting

Forget me nots, second thoughts live in isolation
Heads or tails and fairy tales in my mind
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting unknown
The rage and love, the story of my life
The Jesus of suburbia is a lie

And screaming
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
And screaming
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
And screaming
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting

    General CommentYay! finally i have the first post!

    This is an ausum song and green day cover it well. It is obvious in it's meaning. I saw Green Day do this song live actually last year. The best rendition they ever did was at Live Aid though!
    Still can believe i got the first post!

    General CommentA good song to stick to the true American Idiot him self, Gorge W. Bush, the 2nd screw up in the Bush clan. Go Green Day, go.

    General Commentyeah on the part where they say "i consider it a challenge before the whole human race," they don't say "and i ain't gonna lose" on the live version at least. they say "and i'm rick james, bitch" which really annoyed me i love green day but they kind of ruined a classic queen song by saying that.
