Green Day's, "2000 Light Years Away"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She holds my malachite
so tight so never let go
'Cause she's 2000 light years away
Why They're Nonsensical:
'Malachite' is a type of rock. Is Billie Joe a geologist? And why is this girl holding his rock?

Green Day's, "Basket Case"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I went to a whore
He said my life's a bore
And quit my whining
cause it's bringing her down
Why They're Nonsensical:
Wow...Instant sex changes. I guess this person really is crazy.

Green Day's, "Brain Stew"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
On my we go!
Why They're Nonsensical:
It's inconsistent. The first phrase, "on my own", implies an individual is telling the story, but the next phrase, "here we go", implies a group of people involved. Shouldn't it be "here I go", for consistency's sake? I mean, if you're on your own, "Here *I* Go" is the more grammatically correct phrase to use.

Is it personification or what?

Green Day's, "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
Why They're Nonsensical:
I've never found anyone who can really tell me what does it mean "dead skin on trial" Is the dead skin been tested for a while, and then if you like it, you'll buy a full version? Or is the dead skin going to need a lawyer so it won't go to jail? And why would you get tattoo of a dead skin on trial? isn't it enough have a lot because of your memories?

Green Day's, "Nice Guys Finish Last"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Pressure cooker pick my brain and tell me I'm insane
Why They're Nonsensical:
Uh? What the heck is that supposed to mean? Maybe it's me, but...

Green Day's, "Wake Me Up When September Ends"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Why They're Nonsensical:
Rain falls from clouds, not stars. Billie Joe's not much of a meteorologist.
