Restless Heart Syndrome Lyrics Green Day

Restless Heart Syndrome Lyrics Green Day

The opening lyric of this song is  "I've got a really bad disease" and is a possibly a reference or a nod to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers' 'Soul to Squeeze'  which has the same opening lyric.

The song has its place as the last place of  21st Century Breakdown's  Act II - Charlatans and Saints 

Restless Heart Syndrome:

I've got a really bad disease
It's got me begging
On my hands and knees
Take me to the emergency
'Cause something seems to be missing
Somebody take the pain away
It's like an ulcer bleeding in my brain
Send me to the pharmacy
So I can lose my memory
I'm elated
Medicated
Lord knows I tried to find a way to run away.

I think they found another cure
For broken hearts and feeling insecure
You'd be surprised what I endure
What make you feel so self-assured?

I need to find a place to hide
You never know what could be
Waiting outside
The accidents that you could find
It's like some kind of suicide

So what ails you is what impales you
I feel like I've been crucified to be satisfied

I'm a victim of my symptom
I am my own worst enemy
You're a victim of your symptom
You are your own worst enemy
Know your enemy

I'm elated
Medicated
I am my own worst enemy
So what ails you is what impales you
You are your own worst enemy
You're a victim of the system
You are your own worst enemy
You're a victim of the system
You are your own worst enemy




Last Night on Earth song lyrics by Green Day



Last Night on Earth song lyrics by Green Day


U2 has a Last Night on Earth song (Michael Jackson had an Earth Song too!), and now so do Green Day from their album, 21st Century Breakdown.

Lyrically the songs meaning is that it's just a classic love song where a boy writes a girl a letter. This song is probably from the point of view Christian (the key protagonist of the album). 

The modern day context is that it was by text message via a mobile phone and he wanted to know if the message had gotten through. Could it be that the girl (or) boy was deliberately ignoring the loving texts? 

The lyrics are thus classic Green Day - at first glance it's a soppy love song, big dig a little deeper and it's a commentary on modern communication, immediacy and given the whole context of the album (fall of religion, people looking for something to believe in), it could perhaps even be even a last message before Christian commits suicide or his last good bye before he marches into battle. Onwards Christian Solider indeed. 

Last Night On Earth lyrics
I text a postcard, sent to you
Did it go through?
Sending all my love to you.
You are the moonlight of my life every night
Giving all my love to you
My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you.

With every breath that I am worth
Here on earth
I'm sending all my love to you.
So if you dare to second guess
you can rest assured
That all my love's for you

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
I'm sending all my love to you.

My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles til I found you
I'm here to honor you
If I lose everything in the fire
Did I ever make it through?

Christian's Inferno Lyrics Green Day

Christian's Inferno Lyrics Green Day

This song is from Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown album.

Christian's Inferno

I got under the grip
Between the modern hell
I got the rejection letter in the mail and
It was already ripped to shreds.
Seasons in a ruin and
This bitter pill is chased with blood.
There's fire in my veins
And it's pouring out like a flood

Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno

This diabolic state is gracing my existence
Like a catasrophic baby
Maybe you're the chemical reaction
I am the atom bomb
I am the chosen one
Toxin your reservoir
And then return man to ape

Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno
Whoa, Christian's inferno

Viva la Gloria Lyrics Green Day

Viva la Gloria Lyrics Green Day

Van Morrisson has a gloria song, so do U2 and now Greenday...

Viva La Gloria Lyrics:

Hey Gloria
Are you standing close to the edge?
Lookout to the setting sun
The brink of your vision
Eternal youth is
A 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 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 lives been drawn to
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 ruin
Ashes to ashes of our youth

She smashed her knuckles into winter
As autumns wind fades into black
She is the saint on 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 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
