'Bouncing off the Wall' song lyrics by Green Day

'Bouncing off the Wall' song lyrics by Green Day

'Bouncing off the Wall' song lyrics by Green Day

A rocker and a half song from Green Day's Revolution Radio album, or "Rev Rad" as fans have latched onto calling it (sounds like some fun loving kind of priest?).

The song is classic Green Day being three punk chords and the truth and as per standard Green Day song writing, nothing but the truth.

When someone is described as bouncing of the walls, it's often used an expression to convey that that person appears to be exhibiting nervous excitement or agitation. It's often borne from a sense of restlessness and an itching just to get out side and get on with it - hence bouncing off the walls.

Green Day's song captures this feeling.

Lyrics

We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
Concrete dream - hey
I'm gonna make a scene: radio
Covered in gasoline, sleeping in reverse
And everybody's bouncing off the walls

Bombs away - hey
It's just another day
An idle threat
The secret of the day
I wouldn't sweat it
And everybody's bouncing off the walls

I'm bouncing off the walls!
Alright!

Concrete kiss - hey
Come on and do the twist: radio
My little exorcist, we're all getting pissed
And everybody's bouncing off the walls

'Cause it's all that I want
And I want to be free
I got Satan right here next to me
'Cause we're all bloody freaks
And we'll give you the creeps
Chasing fireflies and zeroes

'Cause it's all that I want
And I want to be free
I got Satan right here next to me
'Cause we're all bloody freaks
And we'll give you the creeps
Chasing fireflies and zeroes
