Green Day has played this song live 5 time(s).
Lyrics
This whiskey sour, amateur hour
Raise your glass and toast your friends
Someday we will fight again

Your enemies your tragedies
Pocket knives and rusty chains
Where the hell is the old gang at?

And all the losers can't even win for losing
And the beginners don't even know what song they're singing

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

This broken scene is turning green
Like brass knuckles left in the rain
Death wish kids among the living

I wanna ride on the divided
Anything but the mainstream
Where the fuck is your old gang, man?

And all the losers can't even win for losing
And the beginners don't even know what song they're singing

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

So long!
You didn't even say goodnight
So long!
There's nowhere to go when you're hiding in plain sight

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound
Song Meaning
"The song title is from the name of a character in the book Rumble Fish . The song itself is about my old punk-rock scene and the survivors of it—the initial starters of that scene and how some of them didn't really live up to their promises and just became finger pointers a little bit. And then they disappeared. And just the feeling that Green Day, we're still here. Where are you? What happened to all the values that you were bringing to the table? Now you're gone. All the things you were telling people to fight for, you're not fighting for them anymore. So that's probably one of the more bitter songs I've written." -- Billie Joe
