Green Day Lyrics

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 damn close
My body begins to swell
Why does 1 + 1 make 2

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 damn close
My body begins to swell
Why does 1 + 1 make 2

Picture sounds
Of moving insects so surreal
Lay around

Billie Joe wrote this one about being stoned and lying on his bed thinkin of weird things. It's kinda self explanitary really

That's so true! It's such a good explanation of being high and alone, hate to say it.

"A small cloud has fallen The white mist hits the ground"

That's another amazing explanation. Like that peaceful wave of happiness that comes after the first few tokes..... hmmm. A green day indeed.

The song "Green Day" was written when the band was called Sweet Children. They liked the name of the song so much that they changed their band name to Green Day. I think the line "Picture sounds Of moving insects so surreal" is a pretty cool line. Great Song

I 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.

This is my favorite song from 39/Smooth, and also one of my top ten favorite Green Day songs. Period. It's so well done that it kind of feels like being on a trip while listening to it, even if you aren't. One of those few songs that actually evokes the emotion and feeling of what it means through just the music and vocals. But if you are high while listening to it....well, I'll just say it's fucking awesome.
