"Song of the Century" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
Sing us a song of the century
That's louder than bombs
And eternity
The era of static and contraband
That's leading us into the promised land
Tell us a story that's by candlelight
Waging a war and losing the fight

They're playing the song of the century
Of panic and promise and prosperity
Tell me a story into that goodnight
Sing us a song for me

    General CommentI imagine the younger generation gathering around to hear this new "Song of the Century," with high expectations for it to take them away from "bombs and eternity." It's setting up the album and building anticipation. Like a prolouge. Or an epilouge, if you wanna go that way. An epilouge for the 20th century, because you can't have a song of a century that's just begining.
