Lyrics
To know you is to hate you
So loving you must be like suicide
Well I don't mind if you don't mind
I'm not the one that's going to die
I guess I just can't listen
To this one sided conversation again
Cause I don't care if I don't care
Well No one ever said that life is fair

Well everybody loves a joke
But no one likes a fool
And you're always cracking the same old lines again
You're well rehearsed on every verse
And that was stated clear
But no one understands your verity
The center of attention
Got an honorable mention once again
Congratulations and salutations
You're figment of your own imagination

Well everybody loves a joke
But no one likes a fool
And you're always cracking the same old lines again
You're well rehearsed one every verse
And that was stated clear
But no one understands your verity

To know you is to bait you
And you fell victim to your own denial
Well I don't mind if you don't mind
You're wasting all your time
Song Meaning
This, in my opinion, is a uniquely styled song lyric-wise for Green Day. Rather than stressing hatred toward someone (like songs such as "Platypus (I Hate You" or "Scumbag"), this song seems to be making fun of someone. It sounds as if the narrator is on the outside looking in, and is laughing at someone because of their......"jackass"-iness, I guess. This is especially illustrated in these lines: "Everybody loves a joke/But no one likes a fool/And you're always cracking the same old lines again."
