“Longview” by Green Day

“I locked the door to my own cell and I lost the key.”

I 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

I’m so damn bored I’m going blind
And I smell like shit

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,
Slipping away to paradise
Some say, “Quit or I’ll go blind,”
But that’s just a myth

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
