BASKET BOX Lyrics

Note: The album title, cover art, this specific song title and the music video, are all a direct reference to Green Day’s 1994 hit song “Basket Case”. Some of the lyrics in the song are also a translated version of Green Day’s lyrics, so I’ve incorporated these into the song. 


Do you have the time to listen to me whine?
So you can know everything there is to know about me

Once I become reliant on something,
I end up hating everything
I wonder why that is, but there’s no doubt about it
I’m neurotic to the bone

It all keeps adding up
It’s completely fucked

Sometimes I become the bad guy
Sometimes I even tell lies

Just tell me,
Is it really so bad to hit people?
Am I really not allowed to talk badly of others?
What counts as ‘nice’ anyway?
I’m too ashamed, I can’t listen anymore
This world is just full of hypocrisy

Do you have the time to tell me your story?
Because I want to know everything there is to know about you

I can’t understand other people,
So I end up hating everything
When stones are thrown, I cower in the corner
I’m neurotic to the bone

It all keeps adding up
It’s completely fucked

Sometimes I become the bad guy
Sometimes I even tell lies

Just tell me,
Is it really so bad to hit people?
Am I really not allowed to talk badly of others?
What counts as ‘nice’ anyway?

You hate pretty much everything,
Always complaining how your life’s a bore
So now I’m holding on for that day,
When you quit your whining

Just tell me,
Is it really so bad to hit people?
Am I really not allowed to talk badly of others?
What counts as ‘nice’ anyway?
I’m too ashamed, I can’t listen anymore
This world is just full of hypocrisy
