Riff: Green Day – “Baby Eyes”

Nov 13, 2012

I’m singing, woah/I’m out of control

from Baby Eyes lyrics by Green Day

Back to the non-threatening phoned-in thrash of the earlier moments on ¡Dos! GD aim for it hard with “born to kill” sentiments and pledging God’s rest to one’s soul with f-bombs, but they just keep falling flat. On the other hand, “I am the cherub and the arab spring” is a fine lyric.
