mass hysteria lyrics – green day

sing us a song of the century

that sings like american eulogy

the d*mn of my love and conspiracy

of forgotten hope and cl*ss of 13

tell me a story into that goodnight

sing us a song for me

m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria

red alert is the color of panic
elevated to the point of static
beating into the hearts of the fanatics
and the neighborhood’s a loaded gun
idle thought leads to full-throttle screaming
and welfare is asphyxiating
m*ss confusion is all the new rage
and it’s creating a feeding ground
for the bottom feeders of hysteria

m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria

true sounds of maniacal laughters
and the deaf-mute is misleading the choir
the punch line is a natural disaster
and it’s sung by the unemployed
fight fire with a riot
the cl*ss war is hanging on a wire
because the martyr is a compulsive liar
when he said
“it’s just a bunch of n*gg*rs throwing gas into the hysteria”

m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria
m*ss hysteria

there’s a disturbance on the oceanside
they tapped into the reserve
the static response is so unclear now
mayday this is not a test!
as the neighborhood burns, america is falling
vigilantes warning you
calling christian and gloria
