Lyrics of Holiday

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an Armageddon flame (Hey!)
The shame
The ones who died without a name

Hear the dogs howling out of key
To a hymn called "Faith and Misery" (Hey!)
And bleed, the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
On holiday

Hear the drum pounding out of time
Another protestor has crossed the line (Hey!)
To find, the money's on the other side

Can I get another Amen? (Amen!)
There's a flag wrapped around a score of men (Hey!)
A gag, A plastic bag on a monument


"The representative from California has the floor"

Zieg Heil to the president gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel towers
Who criticize your government
Bang bang goes the broken glass and
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trials by fire, setting fire
Is not a way that's meant for me
Just cause, just cause, because we're outlaws yeah!

refrain (2x)

This is our lives on holiday


'Holiday' is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day, released as the third single off their seventh studio album 'American Idiot'. The song is in the key of F minor and in 4/4 time signature. Though the song is a prelude to 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', 'Holiday' was released as a single later on, in the spring of 2005. The song achieved considerable popularity across the world and performed moderately well on the charts. In the U.S., it reached number nineteen on the 'Billboard' Hot 100 and number one on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Hot Modern Rock Tracks charts. It debuted at number eleven in the UK and at number twenty-one in Canada.

During live performances, lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong liked to introduce this song with a political statement, or alternatively, a disclaimer. For example, on Green Day's CD/DVD 'Bullet in a Bible', Armstrong announces, 'This next song's a big 'fuck you' to all the politicians. This song's called Holiday! This song is not anti-American; it's anti-war!' Parts of the song were played in the movie 'Surf's Up'. The song is also featured in the video game 'Tony Hawk's American Wasteland'. It was also played in the original trailer for the motion picture 'War, Inc.' It is also played during the Vancouver Canucks goal horn for the 2009-2010 season and was the goal song for the San Jose Sharks during the 2006–2007 NHL season.
