Little girl, little girl
Why are you crying?
Inside your restless soul, your heart is dying.
Little one, little one
Your soul is purging
Of love and razor blades
Your blood is surging

Run away
From the river to the street
And find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home
When you got no place to go

Little girl, little girl
Your life is calling
The charlatans and saints of your abandon
Little one, little one
The sky is falling
Your lifeboat of deception is now sailing
In the wake all the way
No rhyme or reason
Your bloodshot eyes
Will show your heart of treason
Little girl, little girl
You dirty liar
You're just a junkie
Preaching to the choir

Run away
From the river to the street
And find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home
When you got no place to go

The traces of blood
Always follow you home
Like the mascara tears
From your getaway
(Gloria)
You're walking with blisters
And running with shears
So unholy
Sister of grace.

Run away
From the river to the street
And find yourself with your face in the gutter
You're a stray for the salvation army
There is no place like home

    (Possibly) My favorite song off of 21st Century Breakdown. :) I love playing it on the piano. Anyways, the songs about woman (most likely Gloria), and her visions and voice of reason are fading away because she is has a heavy drug problem and is distorting the vision by self destruction.

    This song is the eleventh installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story.

    It is written in neither Gloria's nor Christian's perspective. It is more of a collection of all of Gloria's doubts and fears.
    Its almost like a voice in her head telling her that she isn't good enough, its making fun of her for cutting and using drugs, telling her that nobody loves her, and that everyone would be better off without her.
    It is laughing at her, telling her to run away from herself.

    Hope it is a single soon I see it all the time and hear it sometimes on my ipod (even though it is a broken now).

    Green day is one of my fav bands ever!!!
