    Default Song

    Dear English experts. Here is a song written by the band Green Day. If you have some time to spare, please look through the song and try to make a guess about what the author was trying to tell us. Thank you.

    Raise your hands to testify
    Your confession will be crucified
    You're a sacrificial suicide
    Like a dog that's been sodomized
    Stand up! - all the white boys
    Sit down! - all the black girls
    You're the soldiers of the new world

    Put your faith in a miracle
    And it's non-denominational
    Join the choir we will be singing
    In the church of wistful thinking

    A fire burns today
    Of blasphemy and genocide
    The sirens of decay
    Will infiltrate the faith fanatics

    Oh bless me Lord for I have sinned
    It's been a lifetime since I last confessed
    I threw my crutches in "the river
    Of a shadow of doubt"
    And I'll be dressed in my sunday best

    Say a prayer for the family
    Drop a coin for humanity
    Ain't this uniform so flattering?
    I never asked you a goddamned thing

    A fire burns today
    Of blasphemy and genocide
    The sirens of decay
    Will infiltrate the faith fanatics

    Don't test me
    Second guess me
    Protest me
    You will disappear

    I want to know who's allowed to breed
    All the dogs who never learned to read
    Missionary politicians
    And the cops of a new religion

    A fire burns today
    Of blasphemy and genocide
    The sirens of decay
    Will infiltrate the inside
