"Christian's Inferno" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
I got under the grip
Between this 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

Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno

This diabolic state is gracing my existence
Like a catastrophic baby
Maybe 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

Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno
Woah, Christian's inferno

    General CommentI noticed alot of people are talking about how Gloria and Christian are "friends" or "lovers", but according to a somewhat recent interview with the band, the story is not a love story at all. In fact, Gloria is the protagonist of the story and is just trying to get through her life without being changed from a Punk Rock chick to whatever this century is trying to make people. She is holding on to her ideas and although she does believe in the corruption of the government and the conspiracies, instead of just bitching about it, she is doing something about it. Christian is the antagonist of the story. He is being changed quickly. He learns of the problems of our society, but just becomes angry at everyone an everything. The two characters are foils and are enemies. Gloria is the "Last of the American Girls" because of how she is willing to stand up for her ideals. Christian is the "Enemy" because he is the "Silence" of the generation, as mentioned in the song "Know Your Enemy". This song is a direct reference to Christian's silence. Even though he becomes angry, he just lets things boil up and doesn't take action.
