Still Breathing song lyrics by Green Day
Still Breathing is a new Green Day song from their album Revolution Radio (often refereed to by fans as the ‘Rev Rad’ album.
Singer and chief lyric writer Billie-Joe Armstrong said that Still Breathing is a song that touches on yet more social issues – drug addiction, gambling and entwines them around the person lives of a soldier and a single mother and of course a boy who this grew up without a father.
Billie Joe said the song's meaning is not about himself (as he has famously struggled with drug addiction himself) but that he want’s the song’s intent to be more a more universal discussion rather than one about his own travails:
‘I'd rather write something where my eyes are forward, not so much internal. I hope it makes people happy and creates a difference in some way, just by people recognizing themselves in the song.’
