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 of 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!
