I was listening to this song, I didnt understand the lyrics... this sounds kinda silly, but can someone tell me what its about? thanks
She...
She screams in silence
A sullen riot penetrating through her mind
Waiting for a sign
To smash the silence with the brick of self-control

[Chorus:]
Are you locked up in a world
That's been planned out for you?
Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?
Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

She...
She's figured out
All her doubts were someone else's point of view
Waking up this time
To smash the silence with the brick of self-control

by people who have kept on


trying when there seemed to be no hope at all

It's about a girl.

I disagree, I think that the meaning of the song transcends the girl mentioned, it is more about bricks than anything.

She is about a book isn't it?

Whoever she is, she hates where she is in her life and is just "waiting for a sign" or the perfect moment to get out or something.

He asks her these questions cause he cares. He says "tell me everything, and i'll listen to you."

Finally, she realizes "oh dang i got tha power--no more doubts about my own inhibition" and finally does something about whats wrong in her life.

simple really.

The meaning of the song is this thread should be a Spiderman thread.

If you look even deeper you will find that the brick symbolizes the Goddess, the female psyche. The titular "she" refers to the egress of girls from childhood to womanhood.

I'm pretty sure the brick symbolizes a brick. You're projecting your own psyche into the story to feel important.

You thinking that a brick symbolizes itself is a manifestation of your misogyny.

Your inability to analyze something as elementary as Green Day lyrics is the source of my misogyny, you made me this way.

since we're letting all our deepest feelings out now apparently, this is my favorite song on dookie, and i think it's a pretty solid album.
i don't know why i feel so dry

She doesn't feel in control. Society is making her decisions for her and when she tries to find happiness for herself, she feels sad because the world around her is telling her to do something different than that; so he's telling her he'll listen to her and support her in her dreams.

i knew you'd respond to that. i'm gonna listen to the album now. the opening bassline+drums in She is a perfect example of effective simplicity (simple but satisfying things get me off x10). for that reason i name it my favorite. having a blast is a close second.
