A small cloud has fallen
The white mist hits the ground
My lungs comfort me with joy
Vegging on one detail
The rest just crowds around
My eyes itch of burning red

Picture sounds
Of moving insects so surreal
Lay around
Looks like I found something new

Laying in my bed
I think I'm in left field
I picture someone, I think it's you
You're standing so darn close
My body begins to swell
Why does one plus one make two?

Picture sounds
Of moving insects so surreal
Lay around
Looks like I found something new

Laying in my bed
I think I'm in left field
I picture someone, I think it's you
You're standing so darn close
My body begins to swell
Why does one plus one make two?

Picture sounds
Of moving insects so surreal
Lay around

    General CommentI once heard Billie and Mike came up with the name "Green Day" while watching an Ernie and Bert skit on Sesame Street. Ernie was explaining to Bert that it was green day, remarking on everything he could think of that was the color green. And I guess Billie or Mike thought of at least one more thing... So it kind of became a private joke between the two of them, a boring day where there's nothing to do but light up and get high. And it explains all the Ernie camios that pop up in their photos.

    Of course I have absolutely no proof of any of this, but it's a damn good story either way.
