One light, one mind, flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
"For crying out loud!" She screamed unto me
A free for all, fuck 'em all

Play the Intro

And there you have it! All comments, etc to my address at the top.

And since your down here, I think you're interested enough to hear that 
to really do this song justice you need an acoustic guitar and a 
distorted elecric, playing different bits. That's how Green Day do it live. 
Also, I think it's cool that Green Day are back! 

You still reading? Fair enough then, it's time to speak my mind. If 
you're doing a tab, please make it in key, correct and include words. 
There are so many poor tabs out there, and it doesn't help anybody. If you 
don't know a major piece of a song, don't publish it, as you're not 
doing anybody any favours. Plus I've yet to find a decent tab for Limp 
Bizkit's Break stuff. 
Do you know of one? Are you a Fred Durst wannabe, with an intricate 
knowledge of the song? Do you just know the correct tuning? Drop us line!

Also e-mail me about anything! I don't want to be just another tab guy 
who everyone ignores. Like the tab? Did a gig with it? Got problems? 
Mail me!

That's it.
Rock on you crazy cats.
