Songs are like a form of chaos that you can control. It's a form of intelligence that maybe you only understand and you hope that someone else can understand. And you can be anyone you want: you can be as grandiose as you want or you can be as down in the gutter as you want. It's just sort of whatever emotional freeway you're on at the time.— Billie Joe Armstrong
Uplifting Control Someone quotations
If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.
Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster.

Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty.
No matter how good you are to them, doesn’t mean they’ll treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you, doesn’t mean they’ll value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most, turn out to be the people you can trust the least.

I'm not a deeply religious person and I don't really know if there's a God or not and I don't really even care, but something out there has got to control something. Because people can put a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger and live and someone else can slip on the curb and die.
If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

The phone is an instrument of intrusion into order.
It is a threat to control. Just when you think you are alone and safe, the call could come that changes your life. Or someone else's. It makes the same flat, mechanical noise for everyone and gives no clues what's waiting there on the other end of the line. You can never be too careful.

If you are a czar or a king or a president or someone that wants to control those below them you do not want people to have a consciousness of life, of their needs.

Anyone else feel like that? Like your life's a big act.
Like you're trying to be a man when you're just a scared kid, trying to keep under control when you really want to scream, cry, or maybe hit someone. Ever feel like you're breathing underwater and you have to stop because you're gulping in too much fluid.
The white man is too intelligent to let someone else come and gain control of the economy of his community.

No, you outta your mind.

The only big ideas I've ever had came from daydreaming, but modern life keeps people from daydreaming.

If Truth is taken away from us, then Right and Wrong are taken from us as well.

(mind controlled) The ultimate meltdown was Britney Spears. But she (Spears) can't hold a conversation. No. They have someone who feeds her what she is supposed to say. Like she can't hold a conversation.

A balanced life is far superior to the male definition of power: earning money someone else spends while he dies sooner.
