song of the century lyrics – green day

sing us a song of the century
that’s louder than bombs and eternity
the era of static and contraband
that’s leading us into the promised land
tell us a story that’s by candlelight
waging a war and losing the fight

they’re playing the song of the century
of panic and promise and prosperity
tell me a story into that goodnight

sing us a song for me …
