Tre's thoughts from the events of the early days of Green Day till Present time. You know the drill. Don't own, didn't happen, no money, don't sue.
They both don't know; they both didn't realize.
They both didn't know what was happening; They were both clueless.
They both had their problems; well guess what, so did I.
I knew what was happening, between Billie and Mike.
I didn't say anything, because you didn't care.
I'm comic relief or a least I try to be.
I know it wasn't easy back then.
I know the band was close to falling apart.
I know a lot of things they don't.
I have to.
We came so close to breaking up, it's scary.
Then Reprise came along, it forced us to think, to communicate, to listen..... to be heard.
That's why we embarrass each other, it keeps us in check.
That's why we keep in touch, we can't afford not to.
That's why we've been a band for the past 18 years, because we almost wasn't.....
We're better know after Dookie and Nimrod.
After being kicked out of Gilman.
Better as a band.
Better as friends...
Billie and I always could tell when Mike was lying or hiding something.
Of course it didn't really help Mike that he just downright sucked at lying, it's not his fault.
I used past tense because things... Well, things changed.
Mike didn't get better at lying.
No, he just got better at hiding it.
Better at avoiding questions.
Better at answering them....
So, we stopped asking.
We just stopped asking him...
So, they both don't know; they both didn't realize.
And they both didn't really know what was happening; They were both clueless.
But I know they both had their problems, and so did I.
I always knew what was happening, between Billie and Mike.
I always knew.
And I didn't say anything, because you didn't care.
