Lyrics
I'm running late to somewhere now that I don't want to be
Where the future and promises ain't what it used to be
I never wanted to compromise or bargain with my soul
How did a life on the wild side ever get so dull?

All grown up and medicated
I'm high on cellular waves
I put the "riot" in patriot
And we all die in threes

I got a seat in the middle of the road
I'm gonna take my time
I shop online so I can vote
At the speed of life
I'm like a drone way up in the sky
I'm a shooting star
There's a soldier that's freaking out
P.S., this is war

All grown up and medicated
I'm high on cellular waves
I put the "riot" in patriot
And we all die in threes

All we want is money and guns
A new catastrophe
Here goes nothing when
There's nothing to lose
It's a small price we pay
When we all dies in threes

Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now

Hallelujah I found my soul
Under the sofa pillow
Congratulations I found myself
Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Song Meaning
"The album opener alternates between dreamy, almost Guided by Voices–like acoustic interludes and Who-style anthemic bursts – Tre Cool thinks he did his best drumming ever on it. Billie Joe Armstrong calls the first line – "I'm running late to somewhere now that I don't want to be" – one of his all-time favorites. 'It's my favorite beginning of a record that we've ever had,' he says. 'I think it's so relatable, whether it's going to your job or going to the dentist.' Another lyric, 'How did life on the wild side get so dull,' touches on Armstrong's post-rehab struggles: 'How do you deal with dealing with yourself? Before it was, I'll have a beer. Now, you have to sort of learn how to breathe a little bit more. I have never been good at boredom. I never know what to do when it's, like, you and you're alone with yourself.' (Track by Track Guide, Rolling Stone)
