GREEN DAY - ¡Viva La Gloria! Lyrics

Hey Gloria, are you standing close to the edge?

Look out to the setting sun, the brink of your vision

Eternal youth is a landscape of a lie



The cracks of my skin can prove, as the years will testify

Say your prayers and light a fire, we're going to start a war

Your slogan's 'A gun for hire,' it's what we waited for



Hey Gloria, this is why we're on the edge

The fight of our live's been drawn in this undying love



Gloria, Viva La Gloria

You blast your name in graffiti on the walls

Falling in broken glass and slashing through your spirits

I can hear it like a jilted crowd



Gloria, where are you Gloria?

You found a home in all your scars and ammunition

You made your bed in salad days amongst the ruins

Ashes to ashes of our youth



She smashed her knuckles into winter

(Gloria!)

As autumn's wind fades into black

She is the saint on all the sinners

(Gloria!)

The one that's fallen through the cracks

So don't put away your burning light



Gloria, where are you Gloria?

Don't lose your faith to your lost naivete

Weather the storm and don't look back on last November

When your banners were burning down



Gloria, Viva La Gloria

Send me your amnesty down to the broken-hearted

Bring us the season that we always will remember

Don't let the bonfires go out



So Gloria, send out your message of

The light that shadows in the night

Gloria, where's your undying love?

Tell me the story of your life

Your life!
