¡Viva La Gloria!
Lyrics Green Day

Hey Gloria,
Are you standing close to the edge?
Look out to the setting sun
The brink of your vision
Eternal youth
Is the landscape of the lie
The cracks of my skin can prove
As the years will testify

Say your prayers and light a fire
We're gonna start a war
Your slogans a gun for hire
It's what we waited for

Hey Gloria,
This is why we're on the edge
The fight of our lives been drawn in
This undying love

Gloria, Viva La Gloria!
You blast your name
In graffiti on the walls
Falling through broken glass that's
Slashing through your spirit
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
As autumns wind fades into black
She is the saint of all the sinners
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 naivety
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
