Track 1 from Insomniac
Released 1995
Green Day has played this song live 51 time(s).
Lyrics
Stranded... lost inside myself
My own worst friend
My own closet enemy
Branded... Maladjusted

Never trusted anyone
Let alone myself
I must insist
On being a pessimist

I'm a loner in a catastrophic mind
Elected the rejected
I perfected the science of idiot

No meaning... no healing
Self loathing freak and introverted
Deviot
Song Meaning
A bleak song for the beginning of a fairly bleak album, lyric wise at least. The lyrics scream about not knowing which way to turn, who to trust, or even whether your own judgement is sound because you've "never trusted anyone/ let along myself." It highlights the pessimism that we all feel at times when we wonder whether we've done the right thing, when you doubt yourself to the point of the despair.
