Good Riddance Song By: Green Day

By: Green Day

Lyrics

Another turning point

A fork stuck in the road

Time grabs you by the wrist

Directs you where to go

So make the best of this test

And don't ask why

It's not a question,

But a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable,

But in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs

And still-frames in your mind

Hang it on a shelf

And good health and good time

Tattoo's of memories

And dead skin on trial, go

For what it's worth

It was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable,

But in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

It's something unpredictable,

But in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

It's something unpredictable,

But in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

I chose the little girl being pulled because scout is both pulled toward Atticus and toward society's views. I chose the upset children to represent Jem and Scouts disappointment with being forced away from society even though there change there mind later

My song Good riddance by Green Day relates to the darker aspects of Jem and Scout's childhood. As Jem and Scout grow up, they are forced to cope with the ideals and decisions of others and the law. This song talks about difficult decisions and how sometimes you are pulled toward the one that may not seem right but in the end it was the best choice. In the beginning they didn't understand why there father was going to defend Tom Robinson. They are kind forced to go along with Atticus even though they don't completely agree. Later during the trail they see that Tom Robinson is innocent. After Tom Robinson’s verdict was announced, Jem and Scout didn’t agree or understand how anyone could convict an innocent man. As Jem and Scout grow up, they are forced to cope with the ideals and decisions of others and the law.
