Lyrics
Your rise and fall
Back up against the wall
What goes around is coming back and haunting you
It's time to quit
Cause you ain't worth the shit
Under my shoes or the piss on the ground

No one loves you and you know it
Don't pretend that you enjoy it or you don't care
Cause now I wouldn't lie or tell
you all the things you want to hear
I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU

I heard you're sick
Sucked on that cancer stick
A throbbing tumor and a radiation high
Shit out of luck
And now your time is up
It brings me pleasure just to know you're going to die

Dickhead, fuckface, cock smoking, mother fucking,
Asshole, dirty twat, waste of semen, I hope you die HEY

Red eye, code blue
I'd like to strangle you
And watch your eyes bulge right out of your skull
When you go down
Head first into the ground
I'll stand above you just to piss on your grave
Song Meaning
"Platypus was written for Tim Yohanon. And I pray to god I misspelled his name. Rest in shit you fucking cunt" -- Billie Joe

The song was written about Tim Yohannan, a founder of 924 Gilman St., and punk music critic. He openly disliked Green Day's breed of "pop-punk," and made it known in his post-"Dookie" reviews of the band. Yohannan would later die of lymphoma, which explains the lines, "I heard you're sick/Sucked on that cancer stick." The narrator later goes on to say that he's happy to hear of this man's coming death. So much hate.
