The Lyrics

I know I'll be bombarded by ones, but this one had to be done. . .and tonight.
Fun times have come and past
I heard my best friends dying breath
Wake me up when HIV's cured

So many have come to pass
All our lives are gone so fast
Wake me up when HIV's cured

Now he's in pain again
Dreaming he'll get far
Trying to be strong for him
Just hoping he'll live on

I put my mind to rest
Dream of all the friends I've lost
Wake me up when HIV's cured

Hatred beats down my back
The extremists all have a blast
Wake me up when HIV's cured

Drop the needle again
Caught it from a high weekend
Wake me up when HIV's cured

My head's Got Rage Again
He had come so far
I was not as safe as him
But I'm safe so far

As his history past
I'll never forget who I lost
Wake me up when HIV's cured

Children in Africa
The HIV's a one way track
Wake me up when HIV's cured

Likethose all who've come to pass
Life's too short as the years pass
Wake me up when HIV's cured
Wake me up when HIV's cured
Wake me up when HIV's cured
sorry, It's not a gay thing--it's not a black thing--it's not a drug thing--It's a life thing, anyone who has a problem with me standing up for HIV patients, you should go to the Phelp's church, you'll be welcome there, I suppose you think the innocent Children in Africa, or the Monekys that first contracted it deserve it too? For the rest of you--I hope this hits close to home, because we are the only ones with the power to do something about the epic that is HIV/Aids

If we wait until then to wake you, then you'll be asleep at least until January 20, 2009. But that might not be a bad thing.

What a true sentiment, dude. 5-5-5. Hey, are you a fan of Green Day? Also, I tell you what, if anyone cures HIV/AIDS, I will give him or her a GMC General tractor-trailer truck. If they'd rather have Chevy's version, then I'll give them a Chevy Bison, but those are harder to come by. If no one wants it, I can just use it to run down that Phelps a-hole. Any ways, remember this people: To protect against HIV/AIDS, either use a condom or don't have sex at all. Also, don't take drugs. Sharing needles causes this as well. Regarding Mike: Are you suggesting that we'll only get to solving this problem when Bush is outta office? Also, I have another serious question to ask of you, Mike: Do you hate Bush so much that you would assassinate him if given the opportunity?

...who needs enemas? Seriously, Pacholek, what the Dumbocrats did for education, for feminism, and for your pathetic little anti-war movement, they can do for your health care as well. At this rate, there won't be any cure for AIDS for centuries. There'll be lots of balloon juice and hot air about it in the meantime, though, oh yes! You can count on that. I'd like to see the look on Hillary's face when she realizes there's absolutely no money left for this utopian scheme of hers at all. You'll all be eager to blame Bush for this the way you've done for everything else, but it's going to be fun knowing you have to tell everyone that you can't afford to bankrupt them with another one of your utopian socialist schemes because FDR already beat you to the punch: the bill for his Social Security ponzi scheme will be coming due almost any day now. Your health care scam would cost a bare minimum of $900 billion a year, and that's in 2004 dollars, but the old fat guy with the long cigarette holder has put us trillions in the hole. Good luck to whoever's President next: you're gonna need it!

See, that's the problem. Going to one side or the other won't help things, so that's why I'm a HUGE proponent of the Republicratic Party. They ain't right, but they ain't left either. They're the middle, where it pays to be.

Thank you all for your support of this particular topic. . .it will likely be a focus topic of many future parodies. . .Dylan: I am a fan of Green Day, I can relate to his words and emotions, and after what has been a terrible two days--I'll be listening to them a lot to feel less lonley. . .Matthias/Red Ant, thank you for your support outside of this also in case I don't get a chance to thank you before my mind moves on from other things.

Touching in many ways and very heartfelt. It does hit close to home... too close. 515++

Sorry about this, GV, but I've gotta put that guy in his place. If the late John Cardinal O'Connor, as conservative as they come, can look on AIDS patients with compassion, then so can any other right-of-center person short of Nazihood. Most of the progress in AIDS research did not come from 1981 to 1992, but from 1993 to 2000. Do the math and the political history. Old fat guy? FDR lived to be the same age Bush will be when he goes back to his ranch for the rest of his goddamned life. And FDR beat the Depression and fascism. He even beat Bush, who tried to destroy Social Security and failed. The next President will fix the problem because he (or she) will have the votes in Congress. It's not just luck: As Bush the Bum himself found out, it's hard work. And I'd rather have a gay Buddhist from Mars, who uses his brain, than another fascist phony Christian like Bush. In a way, we have gotten past FDR: We no longer even fear "fear itself." The only thing that can stop America is Americans choosing not to care. That ended last November. You lose, America wins.

Wow. Yet another moonbat rant in which every word of it is a lie, including a, an, the, but, and and. Take my word for it, GV: if you want people to listen to you, don't ever associate with hate-filled losers like Pacholek. You'll notice in this rant of his he says not a word about how anybody's going to pay for all this commie phony Christian twaddle of his. How typical of moonbats to go loudly asserting a political solution for everything while never saying a word about how they plan to pay for it. Since he insists on smears and character assassinations instead of reasoning, let's confine the response to this fact-free rant of his with one easily answered question: what kind of "Christian" is MP? Let's put it this way: MP wants us all to believe that Jesus Christ was the Fidel Castro of his day and that he wants us all to spend trillions of dollars on "free" health care. If the current Fidel Castro's health care system is anything to go by, MP's beloved Hillarycare will be too busy trying to find a cure for a rickets epidemic to do anything about AIDS. If MP is a Christian, I'm Groucho Marx.

I won't get into a Dem VS Rep debate on any of this. . .what I do know is that both parties are affected by HIV and both parites have done little to show that they view it as a serious health epidemic. I respect all opinions, and am glad you guys both seem to understand how important this topic is. . .what I need to get across is this really is a bipartisan issue. I'm hopeful to find a cure, I don't care who finds the next best thing that will help me and people like me who have contracted it to keep living. This virus has weaknesses-we've found them as humans--and I think that's great, now that means we are close to having a vaccine. . .yes--a vaccine. . .I pray that between the two of you, Michael and Republican (sorry I don't know your name) that you both are able to continue support for this cause. .. I don't have strong political ties, as Dylan has said, neither party really has really met all my opinions or needs--so I'm not wanting to argue, I thank you both for your continued comments though--and for addressing me, If a vaccine is found, I don't care if it's a democrat, republican, independent or foreigner, I will be able to stop living like this. I just found out yesterday (after this parody was posted) to my surprise, I had somehow contracted HIV. . .I'm not really sure, but regardless--now it's no longer about friends, it's about surviving myself too. . .to me, I just want to live, I don't want to fight. . .and naturally I'm a bit scared, but I will fight this disease, I don't care what parties you guys represent, I respect you both just for coming to this parody and posting something that doesn't insult the HIV fight. . .it means you guys both recognize it's importance. . .but please also know I will not draw political lines until I see significant progress by either side.

TGV, I am sorry to learn that you have contracted HIV. I commend you for a poignant parody and will keep you in my prayers. What Place, Mr. Pacholek is not a hate-filled loser, but he is sometimes misinformed. His suggestion that a cure for AIDS might be more likely under a Democrat administration ignores the fact that federal AIDS spending has increased from $4 billion in 1992 to $12 billion in 2000 and $21 billion in 2006 and will continue to increase whether the next president is a Republican or Democrat. Mr. Pacholek's assertions about FDR also ignore the facts. FDR did not beat the Depresson - the United States was still in a depression when WWII occurred and "solved" the unemployment problem. And whether you like the way President Bush tried to privatize part of Social Security or not, it is a fact that the Social Security system is broken and needs to be fixed soon.

Whoa, you got HIV/AIDS? I'm sorry to hear that. I think I might give you a GMC General as a token of sympathy. However, I don't have enough money to buy one, so I might have to give you a model of one. Concerning the other guys: Don't mix politics and religion. Bad things happen. I mean, look at 9/11 & all the crud that happened since then: It happened because a bunch of terminal psychotics took religion too seriously. Now, I have practically nothing against Islam or Muslims. In fact, I believe that a lot of Muslims are decent, hard-working, law-abiding folks who are just trying to live life & to help their families or whatever. The main problem I have is with Osama bin Laden & others like him who choose to interpret the Koran so literally that they believe it's OK to take AK-47s, RPGs, IEDs; and all that bad stuff & kill people just because their beliefs are not like theirs. And I have problems with their idea that they'll one day create a one-nation world dominated by an Islamic government that treats non-Muslims unfairly. Man, the Soviet Union was more organized than those Al-Qaeda rabblerousers, and at least the Soviet Union had Nu Pogodi (an old Russian cartoon series. The title translates as "Just You Wait!"). If this one-government world does happen, you've got to ask yourself a question: what of the popular media? Will they have anything remotely as good as Nu Pogodi? Well, will they, punk?

Mr. Gay Voice, before you perish from HIV/AIDS, you should discover the song "Moskau" by Dschinghis Khan. Seriously, they're one of the best bands you've never heard of. Just Google or Youtube "Moskau" & you'll see what I mean. If you want an MP3 of the full song, you can search Limewire or someplace like that. If you don't have something like that, go to: Moskau is under the first album, Dschinghis Khan.

please take this parody off. this song is about the lead singers father who died. this isnt right.

Did you even read the parody? It's not a funny parody at all-it's not meant to be. It doesn't insult the original song, or Green Day or the death of his father. Green Day is among many artists who have consistantly said yes to parodies of their music, and in this case there's nothing 'not right' about it. . .as a fan of Green Day, this song and someone familiar with his father's death story I would find it hard to believe in the very least that Billie Joe would have a big problem with this parody or any for that matter--he is afterall a proponent of free speech. . .and the songs on this site that parody Green Day are generally of the utmost respect for their music--this song is no exception
