Green Day - 21 Guns

Interpretation: The song is about pain of growing up and learning that things might happens when we are young.

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Interpretation: This verse is about the most important things to us and not wasting our time on things that mean nothing.

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

Interpretation: We grew up by going through bad times and sometimes bad time preceeds good times. It feels like we can't do anything right or life is pointless and we just want to hide.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Interpretation: When bad times preceed good times, we learn to not trust anyone and try to be independent, but sometimes we need someone.

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Interpretation: If the bad times are really bad, we start thinking it's never going to get better and one might opt to die.

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

Interpretation: If we're hurting inside, then we may start trying to destroy our self using drugs and alcohol.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

Interpretation:
Sometimes we just want to be on our own completely but it never works.

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

Interpretation: Sometimes even though people want to help the pain you've gone through is so bad no one can help us, even if we want them to.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I
