Green Day – Murder City lyrics

Desperate
But not hopeless
I feel so useless in the Murder City
Desperate
But not helpless
The clock strikes midnight
In the Murder City

I'm wide awake after the riot
This demonstration of our anguish
This empty laugher has no reason
Like a bottle of your favorite poison

We are the last call
And we're so pathetic

Desperate
But not hopeless
I feel so useless in the Murder City
Desperate but not helpless
The clock strikes midnight
In the Murder City

Christian's crying in the bathroom
And I just want to bum a cigarette
We've come so far
We've been so wasted
It's written all over our faces

We are the last call
And we're so pathetic

Desperate
But not hopeless
I feel so useless in the Murder City
Desperate but not helpless
The clock strikes midnight

Desperate

    This song is the tenth installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It is written in Gloria's perspective.
    There has been a riot, a demonstration of their ideals and beliefs.
    Its midnight, and Gloria is lying awake while Christian is in the bathroom, trying to hide the fact that he's crying.
    They both feel hopeless because they are beginning to think their efforts are wasted and there is no point in their lives. She knows they aren't finished yet, but she still feels desperate, like its their last chance, and she wants it to be worth it.
