The song seems to depict the life of an android, Joe Robot. Similar to any machine, it has a beginning and an end from its creation to the time it finally breaks down. Even though it can act and socialize like a human (keeps us laughing, makes us cry), at the end of the day it’s still a robot (it’s a beautiful story but it pretends). The author shows a view from the public against humanoid machines who compares the existence of such a life form akin to talking to a tin can.

This sentience in a machine leads to people questioning its humanity/degree of self-awareness and tracking it for scientific research purposes (Where is it going? Where has it been?). It can be said its creator is unknown and Joe Robot could’ve just popped up one day from seemingly nowhere (it’s a trojan horse or is it a friend?).

- song meaning written by u/potlah on r/GreenDay

It has a beginning (It has a beginning)
It has an end (It has an end)
It's a beautiful story (It's a beautiful story)
But it's pretend (But it pretends)
It keeps us laughing (It keeps us laughing)
It makes us cry (It makes us cry)

It's alive, it's Joe Robot
Have tin can, have Joe Robot

Where is it going? (It has a beginning)
Where has it been? (It has an end)
It's a trojan horse (It's a beautiful story)
Or is it friend? (But it's pretend)

It's alive, it's Joe Robot
Have tin can, have Joe Robot

This is age of make-believe
Or a reality series
Television, murder city
Dreaming of tomorrow
Am I alive or fantasy?

Give me murder give me loss
Turn the cities into dust man

My brain is melting
And it smells like a volcano

Japanimation surgery
Drinking nuclear energy
Reservoir spewing toxic
Shout!
There's no tomorrow
Drinking nuclear energy

Give me murder give me loss
Turn the cities into dust man

My brain is melting
And it smells like a volcano

Give me murder give me loss
Transistors
Transistors gone wild

Reto,
You're a technical whiz,
Masturbating with computers
For a legion of kids.

Reto,
You're a solid state,
A microchip and designer tape.

Oh Reto,
Where did you come from?
With transistors and a keyboard
You're a virtual gun. 

Reto,
Is there something wrong?
The bigger wired robot
Is still using its probe
When life's behind the screen
Of an agorophobe.

Oh Reto,
Artificial life,
A new computer and a brand new wife.

Oh Reto,
Can you process this?
A girlfriend in a coma having cyber sex.
Gamble it away with computer chips.

Oh no

Knowing where we're going
(Where do we go?)

Oh Reto,
Are you future smart?
Fiber optics cybercloptic digital heart.

Reto,
Can you cypher me?
Eight zero two eleven B.

Oh Reto,
It's a stripped down world
Like muriatic acid in a toilet bowl.

Reto
It's an SOS
We're microwaving signals like a scientist.
Our bit-rate is shrinking to a non-existant.

Oh no
Knowing where we're going
(Where do we go?)

Where do we go, Reto?

Not quite a fembot
But almost an alien
She's in the smell of the month club
I feel it in my lungs

Lesbian junkie funky
Slam dunk a cosmonaut
With laser guns and having fun
Biological parking lot

All systems down

So titty-twist a mad scientist
Oh is this the toxic ride
Wrap me up in a plastic bag
And hang me out to dry

Artificial respiration
I need my medication
Load me up and light a match
All systems down and out

It's down and out

The song seems to depict a future (2020) where people are divided into three big gangs (bloody gangs of three deep divisions) that are constantly waging war spanning worldwide (international, interracial) in order to create jobs and money for themselves (The bad blood's because of war).

Hey this Brandon but my friends call me Spike now.
I just moved out my parents' house in Danville
To this wicked warehouse in Oakland.
Anyway, I spent most of the day spare-changing on the avenue.
I started out in front of the Med
But everyone kept saying I looked too young and healthy
So I went up the street to the Gap where all the
Yuppie college kids shop
I was there until about 5:30 or 6
I scored about 10 bucks
So me and my girlfriend, you met her, she's from La Jolla
Anyway, we got some money from her parents
So we're gonna stop by because

I need a fix

What's that?
Now's not a good time?
What do you mean there's none left?
Well, what the fuck dude?
If I would have known that I would have gone to Concord.
What do you mean go back to Concord then?
Dude, you don't even know who you're talking to.
Don't make me get all Blackhawk on your ass.
Wait, man, I didn't mean that.
C'mon dude, please?
Alright man.
Wait wait wait wait
Do you know anyone that's got any?
Do you got a number?
What do you mean you won't give it to me?
I didn't call for a shitty conversation,
I called because

I need a fix

Man I got it rough
When drinking cough syrup
Just ain't enough
On and on
I'm a teenage rebel
I'm fucking bored

Mom, this is Spi, I mean Brandon.
I got kicked out of my place in Oakland.
I don't really have any place to go so
I was just wondering if I could stay with you or Grandma or something?
I don't know.
My girlfriend dumped me she moved back to La Jolla, it's kind of a drag.
I guess she's gonna go back to school or something.
Anyway, call me back.
Oh, one more thing Mom,
I was wondering if I could borrow $200 because

I need a fix

I'm a teenage rebel

Spin a wheel
Behind the mark
Another deal
In the dark
In the red
And in the grey
Dangerous
With a kiss

On a take
At the zoo
On a make
Sniffing glue
In a bind
In your mind
Runaway
You're ok

Then you crack

Take a pill
Wide awake
Sanding still
On the street
Cut the cord
You're in debt
You're so bored
Covered in sweat

Kickin' in
With a grin
Going out
With a bang
Huffing fumes
Walk the line
Luftballoons
In my spine

Then you crack

Love and money
Well spent
Love and money
Well spent

And then you crack

I'm taking a ride to the liquor store
I'm looking for a beer and a little bit more
I'm gonna spend all the money she had
On a nude girl in a dirty old magazine
50 cents cheaper than the real thing
Even though it may be a little bit disgusting
Can't call a bitch and it ain't got no drama
It's called a new sensation called the right hand-a-rama

I don't know why
I don't know why
It sure feels good
Most every time

Alright

Pamela and her five sisters
Are giving me a bad case of nasty blisters
A third degree burn going straight to my head
I guess my pipes are a little bit rusted
Close encounters of the strangest kind
I got the heebee-jeebes for the hundredth time
It didn't work out the way it was planned
All I got now is a beer in my hand

I don't know why
I don't know why
It sure feels good
Most every time

I'll tell you why

Alright

The lyrics have a very strong message of a lack of faith in most things people believe in. The author doesn't believe the world will end (a reference to 2012 conspiracies/religion?) and he doesn't believe in love (and it just happens to be valentines).

The author also seems to be very close minded and untrusting when it comes to opinions and facts, refusing to believe in what he's read, others promises and compromising his own beliefs. It can be seen that the author is delusional about his own opinions and facts he built himself.

The chorus shows the author's reluctance to even listen to others (I don't believe I asked opinion) and that whatever he's conspiring is not too farfetched from the truth (I don't believe I stretched the truth).

He appears to be trying to appeal to someone by saying that no matter what all he believes is in him/her despite his weird beliefs. Whether this is a manipulative or genuine phrase remains to be seen.

- song meaning written by u/potlah on r/GreenDay

I don't believe in the apocalypse
I don't believe in the end of time
I don't believe in the solar eclipse
I don't believe in valentines

I don't believe I asked an opinion
I don't believe I stretched the truth
I am not looking for a bargain
All I really believe in is you

I don't believe in everything I've read
I don't believe in promises
I don't believe in compromising
My own beliefs inside my head

I don't believe I asked an opinion
I don't believe I stretched the truth
I am not looking for a bargain
All I really believe in is you

I don't believe I asked an opinion
I don't believe I stretched the truth
I am not looking for a bargain
All I really believe in is you

Shiny perky models
Tall gorgeous models
Hungry hungry models
On the runway

Baby, I need a jacket
I see through that skirt
Purple plastic earrings
Finger down her throat

Walking like a tiger
Spinning at the end
Hungry hungry models
On the runway

Shiny perky models
Tall gorgeous models
Hungry hungry models
On the runway

Hungry Hungry Models
On the runway

Lucy's kind of nervous
Jeannie's on the pill
Peggy's in pyjamas
Stevie's kissing Jill

Shiny perky models
Tall gorgeous models
Hungry hungry models
On the runway

Pretty little models
Sitting by the pool
Talking about fashion
Hungry like the wolf

As they stare into our flesh
At the end of what comes next
Peering deep into the light
X-ray hamburgers tonight

Evolution of a race
In outer space

Running tests upon our scars
Bits and pieces of our hearts
Burnt so hot beneath the light
X-ray hamburgers tonight

Evolution of a race
In outer space

You're the change that had to come
As we stare into the sun
Pane of glass we can see through
X-ray hamburger is you
It's you
X-ray hamburger to go
It's you
X-ray hamburger to go
It's you
X-ray hamburger to go
It's you

Well, we land in barren fields
On the arizona plains
The insemination of little girls
In the middle of wet dreams

We are the angel mutants
The streets for us seduction
Our cause injust and ancient
In this "b" film born invasion

Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care

Well, we've seen your 3-d movies
In violent abduction
We blast your mindless structure
Inferior connection
We take your weak resistance
Throw it in your face
We need no introduction
For mass anhiliation

Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care

Well, we need no introduction
No visas or carte blanche
Inhuman reproduction
We're here for what we want
We want, we need it, we'll take it
We want, we need it, we'll take it
We want, we need it, we'll take it
We want, we need it, we'll take it, baby
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care

Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
Teenagers from mars and we don't care
And we don't care (and we don't care)
And we don't care, we don't care
We don't care, and we don't care

See your face from afar
Projecting you into a star
Skin so pale and eyes so black
Are you ever coming back?

Do you feel...

Puritan inside your heart
Turning night into art
Decorum might get to you
Projecting you into a god

Do you feel...

Do you feel... the Hammer of the Gods
