Sorrow. Pain. The inability to wake up from your own personal prison of hell. This song is all about that. We think its about someone’s love that has died in war, but in reality, its about Bille Joe and his dads issues. Even though the meaning that the song is supposed to have is different , the feelings and emotions the artist is conveying are true for both situations. This song can be interpreted in numerous ways and that is truly why I love it. So, here is Wake Me Up When September Ends – Green Day.
