Desensitized Lyrics

Clenching my teeth tight
My head is like a sponge
Give it to me free
I wanna get ripped off
And drown in the airwaves
Another fatal wreck
On the information highway
So go ahead and kill yourselves
It all amuses me
For I'll be damned to...

    This song can be taken somewhat literally.

    This current generation of children are becoming, well, desensitized to things. Violence and corruption is everywhere, and children are now becoming exposed to it at a younger age. This makes them somewhat immune to the shock-factor of death and the like because they see variant forms of it on television and in movies. Decades ago, showing anything to violent or suggestive was unheard of, and now it's in children's movies.

    This song is merely an interpretation of the effects of violence on the children of today.

    This song is about how the lead singer of Green Day (Billie Joe Armstrong) thinks that the internet controls peoples lives.
