Lyrics

We're living in repetition. Content in the same old shtick again. Now the routine's turning to contention, Like a production line going a over and a over and a over, roller coaster

Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice Speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words.

Choreographed and lack of passion Prototypes of what we were Went full circle 'til I'm nauseous Taken for granted now I waste it, faked it, ate it, now i hate it

'Cause I cannot speak, I lost my voice Speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words.

Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice I'm speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words.

Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice I'm speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words.

Music Video

The music video for Redundant features the band performing in the middle of a room with the camera remains static for the duration of the whole video, and features several people performing tasks during the whole video.

  • A newspaper is thrown from offscreen.
  • A woman stretches her arms and yawns, and then collects the paper and leaves.
  • Someone takes a painting off of a wall and replaces it with a new one, then someone else comes in and replaces that painting with the one that's just been replaced.
  • A young girl walks from the left side of the screen, places a box on the coffee table next to the couch, and then climbs out of a window.
  • A man in a green suit jacket walks around, picks up the box from the coffee table and leaves.
  • A man in a cowboy hat walks around.
  • A woman in a bright red dress removes her dress and then walks away in nothing but her bra and underwear.
  • A balding man comes in, puts on a pair of trousers, then leaves.
  • A woman with a large pot and a plant walks around.
  • A man and a girl walk towards a couch and begin making out.
  • A man is vacuuming.
  • A young girl in a skirt comes in through a window, looks around, and leaves.

The activity peaks near the middle of the video and declines near the end. Tré and Mike leave, but Billie Joe takes the newspaper before the woman can reach it, causing her to scream, and in some aspect, breaking the "routine".
