Green Day's Troubled Times song lyrics
Troubled Times is a sweet song from Green Day's twelfth studio album, Revolution Radio. Often shorted to 'Rev Rad' the album's lyrics have continued the biting commentary that Green Day offers on American Society.
Whereas Bang Bang reflected on American gun culture and the reaction of the medica to mass gun shootings, Troubled Times, simply reflects exactly what the song's writer is seeing across the board.

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.’

'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.
