Track 2 from ¡UNO!
Released 2012
Green Day has played this song live 10 time(s).
Lyrics
Breaking in a sweat like a bomb threat
Is your silhouette fading out
Nothing left to lose, detonate the fuse
Another break in this blow out

Ain't it beautiful so unusual
Life's a gas and it's running out
Living a cliche gonna seize the day
Bottle rockets and celebrate

Carpe diem a battle cry
Aren't we all too young to die?
Ask a reason and no reply
Aren't we all too young to die?

Making a living making a killing
What's worth forgiving
Alright

A blink of an eye barely scraping by
Dominated by passerbys
Feeling out of luck when the traffic's stuck
And you're feeling so left behind

Getting off a binge get a second wind
Another promise to make a change
Got a broken wing hear the angels sing
When the signal is out of range
Ain't it strange

Carpe diem a battle cry
Aren't we all too young to die?
Ask a reason and no reply
Aren't we all too young to die?

Making a living making a killing
What's worth forgiving
Alright

Making a living making a killing
What's worth forgiving
Alright

Carpe diem a battle cry
Aren't we all too young to die?
Ask a reason and no reply
Aren't we all too young to die?
Song Meaning
"[Carpe Diem] is about living in the moment. I think the older you get, you have to appreciate your time on this planet." -- Billie Joe

The phrase "carpe diem " is Latin for "seize the day." This song is haunted by questions of mortality. The narrator says that there's "nothing left to lose," and that "life's a gas and it's running out." It seems that a sudden realization has hit him, and he decides to make a change in his lifestyle. He realizes that he's too young to get old, and everyone might as well have fun while they can. This song is ultimately about living life to the fullest, in spite of our obvious human mortality.
