80 is the 8th track in Green Day's second album, Kerplunk!

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My mental stability reaches its bitter end
And all my senses are coming unglued
Is there any cure for this disease someone called love?
Not as long as there are girls like you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Everything she does questions my mental health
It makes me lose control, I wanna hurt myself

[Chorus]
If anyone can hear me, slap some sense into me
But you turn your head and I end up talking to myself
Anxiety has got me strung out and frustrated
So I lose my head, or I bang it up against the wall

[Verse 2]
Sometimes I wonder if I should be left alone
And lock myself up in a padded room
I'd sit and spew my guts out to the open air
'Cause No one wants to hear a drunken fool

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Everything she does questions my mental health
It makes me lose control, I just can't trust myself

[Chorus]
If anyone can hear me, slap some sense into me
But you turn your head, and I end up talking to myself
Anxiety has got me strung out and frustrated
So I lose my head, or I bang it up against the wall

[Bridge]
I do not mind if this goes on
'Cause now it seems I'm too far gone
I must admit I enjoy myself
80, please keep taking me away, away

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Everything she does questions my mental health
It makes me lose control, I just can't trust myself

[Chorus]
If anyone can hear me, slap some sense into me
But you turn your head, and I end up talking to myself
Anxiety has got me strung out and frustrated
So I lose my head, or I bang it up against the wall
