Holiday/Boulevard of Broken Dreams [Live Sessions@aol]
by Green Day



Say, hey!

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an armageddon flame
The shame
The ones who died without a name

Hear the dogs howling out of key
To a hymn called Faith and Misery
And bleed
The company lost the war today

[Chorus]
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
On holiday

Hear the drum pounding out of time
Another protester has crossed the line
To find
The money's on the other side

Can I get another amen? (Amen)
There's a flag wrapped around a score of men
A gag
A plastic bag on a monument

[Chorus]

(The representative from California has the floor)

Sig heil to the President Gas Man!
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel Tower
Who criticize your government
Bang bang goes the broken glass and
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trial by fire, setting fire
It's not a way that's meant for me!

Just cause (Hey, hey!)

Just cause, because we're outlaws yeah!

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

This is our lives on holiday

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me
And I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

[Chorus]
I walk alone, I walk alone

I walk alone, I walk-a

My shadow's only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then, I walk alone

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the borderline
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

[Chorus]

I walk alone, I walk-a

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk-a

[Chorus]
