Green Day: 21st Century Breakdown

Picked this up today. Just thought the lyrics from the album’s prelude were post-worthy, because, quite frankly, the first time I read them they sent shivers up my spine.

Sing us a song of the century

That’s louder than bombs and eternity

The era of static and contraband

That’s leading us to 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

Also, I’ve booked a ticket and I’m off to America in October! Yep, the land of hamburgers, George W Bush and crazy right wing religious conservatives (hang on a second…). Should be a pretty crazy 3 weeks.
