¡Viva la Gloria!

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 the lie 
The cracks on my skin can prove 
As the years will testify 
Say your prayers and light a fire 
We're going to 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 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 
Ahe 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 your story of your life.
