"Christie Road" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
Staring out of my window watching the cars go rolling by
My friends are gone I've got nothing to do
So I sit here patiently watching the clock tick so slowly
Gotta get away or my brains will explode

Give me something to do to kill some time
Take me to that place that I call home
Take away the strains of being lonely
Take me to the tracks at Christie Road

See the hills from afar standing on my beat up car
The sun went down and the night fills the sky
Now I feel like me once again as the train comes rolling in
Smoked my boredom gone, slapped my brains up so high

Give me something to do to kill some time
Take me to that place that I call home
Take away the strains of being lonely
Take me to the tracks at Christie Road

Mother, stay out of my way of that place we go
We'll always seem to find our way to Christie Road
Mother, stay out of my way of that place we go
We'll always seem to find our way to Christie Road

If there is one thing that I need that makes me feel complete
So I go to Christie Road, it's home, it's home
It's home, it's home, it's home

    General CommentThis song definately combines the amazing aspects of a ballad and punk song together in one. The lyrics help make that transition too. In the beginning half of the song, it's about boredom, having no where exciting to go and wanting to go to "Christie Road" (which I suspect is a metaphor for some kind of place BJ wants to go to?) and then as soon as the song picks up some speed and intensity, BJ is now saying "If there's one thing that I need That makes me feel complete So I go to Christie Road It's home..." as if he made it to the place he wanted to go to. Did that make sense? Anyways, it's one of Green Day's greatest songs and is even more incredible live!
