Play

I get my kicks and I want to start a rager
I want to dance like I’m on the video
I got a fever for violent behavior
I’m sweating bullets like a modern Romeo

(Bang bang!)
(Gimme fame!)
Shoot my up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
(You’re dead!)
(I’m well fed!)
Give me death or give me head
Daddy’s little psycho
And mommy’s little soldier

I testify like a lullaby of memories
Broadcasting live
And it’s on my radio
I got my photobomb
I got my Vietnam
I love a lie just like anybody else

(Bang bang!)
(Gimme fame!)
Shoot my up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
(You’re dead!)
(I’m well fed!)
Give me death or give me head
Broadcasting from my room
And playing with my toys

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hurrah!
Hurrah!
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho
And mommy’s little soldier

I want to be like the soldiers on the screen
It’s my private ho-ly war
Oh baby baby this is viva vendetta
For this is love or it’s
World War Zero!

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The little man in my own private drama
Hurrah!
Hurrah!
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho
and mommy’s little soldier

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The little man in my own private drama
Hurrah!
Hurrah!
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho
and mommy’s little soldier!

I think [Give Me] Novacaine is sort of the song about trying to find that escape in places that are probably not the most healthy things in the world. If you let it take you over you can lose yourself in it. I think that’s what [Give Me] Novacaine is kind of about. That sort of defining moment where you actually lose yourself into your own demons in a lot of ways. -Billie Joe Armstrong
