    "Longview" Lyrics:
    Sit around and watch the tube, but nothing's on
    I change the channels for an hour or two
    Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit
    I'm sick of all the same old shit
    In a house with unlocked doors
    And I'm fucking lazy

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored I'm going blind
    And I smell like shit

    Peel me off this Velcro seat and get me moving
    I sure as hell can't do it by myself
    I'm feeling like a dog in heat
    Barred indoors from the summer street
    I locked the door to my own cell
    And I lost the key

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored I'm going blind
    And I smell like shit

    I got no motivation
    Where is my motivation?
    No time for the motivation
    Smoking my inspiration

    Sit around and watch the phone, but no one's calling
    Call me pathetic, call me what you will
    My mother says to get a job
    But she don't like the one she's got
    When masturbation's lost its fun
    You're fucking lonely

    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored
    I'm going blind
    And loneliness has to suffice
    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    I was slipping away to paradise
    Some say, "Quit or I'll go blind."
    But it's just a myth

      My mother says to get a job, but she don't like the one she's got
      When masturbation's lost its fun, you're fucking breaking


      Bite my lip and close my eyes, take me away to Paradise
      I'm so damn bored I'm going blind and loneliness has to suffice
      Bite my lip and close my eyes, I'm slipping away to Paradise
      Some say: "Quit or I'll go blind" But it's just a myth

            As a late 80’s and early 90’s kid there were 2 versions: the radio version (we didn’t have the luxury of choice) and (before Siri), and the unedited version-found only on the physical cassette or cd. These always came with a parental advisory notice and you had to be imaginative to sneak this by your parents...or know an older kid who had it, to which you paid him or her. Basically this is from the 90’s with a 90’s mentality. Buy a physical copy guys. I hate censorship too but I also hate an over reliance on technology (odd bc I’m using technology to get my message across so I’m s hypocrite, but an honest hypocrite) or a Walking Contradiction lol

                          Ill never forget rushing the stage at Lollapalooza in 1994 when this song first came out and Green Day was just starting to get big. So much energy. It was great. I still think about the blue haired girl i went home with that night too. I miss her. Shout out to you Dawn. Hmu lol.

                                                      This is my personal favourite Green Day song. Also, I feel like I am the only fan who sort of lost interest after Dookie (or maybe Insomniac)

It might mean that the narrator of this song is looking at his life wondering what to do next and whether he even has a future. He’s an unemployed young man who spends most of his time watching tv,and getting high

                                                                    This song is about being bored, lonely, and feeling like a complete loser. In an interview with VH1, lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong said: "I was just in a creative rut. I was in-between houses sleeping on people's couches. It's a song about trying not to feel pathetic and lonely.

                                                                    I was coming from a lonely guy's perspective: No girlfriend, no life, complete loser."
