Take away the sensation inside
Bitter sweet migraine in my head
It's like a throbbing tooth ache of the mind
I can't take this feeling anymore

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
This sensations overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing
So give me Novacaine

Out of body and out of mind
Kiss the demons out of my dreams
I get the funny feeling, that’s alright
Jimmy says it's better than air,
I’ll tell you what

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
This sensations overwhelming,
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright
Tell me that I won't feel a thing,
So give me Novacaine

Oh Novacaine

Drain the pressure from the swelling,
This sensations overwhelming
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright
Tell me Jimmy I won't feel a thing,
So give me Novacaine

    This is the former HazelDountLovesBullet, under my new name!! I'm explaining the American Idiot Musical plot, for anyone following. The last song was Are We the Waiting/St. Jimmy. Here, Johnny is still shooting up (obviously. He's an addict.), Tunny is freaking out because he's a soldier now and is scared out of his mind, and Will wants all the mounting pressureof impending parenthood to stop, so he just sits around getting drunk. They're all just screwing up, but Johnny is definately hit the hardest. The next song is Last of The American Girls/Shes a rebel. Its both songs mixed together (I'll explain why), but for this string of explinations, folly me to she's a rebel.

    Whoever thinks that the "here" is "air" you're wrong.
    The American Idiot Album has a lyrics page, and it says "here". Just throwing that out there, guys.

    In the song it says "It's like a throbbing TOOTHACHE of the MIND", so it's like a toothache and he needs something to stop it from hurting, and novacaine helps stop toothaches.

    It means that he has too many bad thoughts and it's painful like a; toothace so he wants novacaine to make it not hurt anymore
