    The lyrics are from part 2 of Jesus of Suburbia. Here are the lyrics for the rest of the song:

    Part I

    I'm the son of rage and love

    The Jesus of suburbia

    From the bible of none of the above

    On a steady diet of

    Soda pop and Ritalin

    No one ever died for my sins in hell

    As far as I can tell

    At least the ones I got away with

    And there's nothing wrong with me

    This is how I'm supposed to be

    In a land of make believe

    That don't believe in me

    Get my television fix

    sitting on my crucifix

    A living room on my private womb

    While the moms and brads are away

    To fall in love and fall in debt

    To alcohol and cigarettes

    And mary jane

    To keep me insane

    Doing someone else's cocaine

    And there's nothing wrong with me

    This is how I'm supposed to be

    In a land of make believe

    That don't believe in me

    Part II: City of the Damned

    At the center of the Earth

    In the parking lot

    Of the 7-11 were I was taught

    The motto was just a lie

    It says home is where your heart is

    But what a shame

    Cause everyone's heart

    Doesn't beat the same

    It's beating out of time

    City of the dead

    At the end of another lost highway

    Signs misleading to nowhere

    city of the damned

    Lost children with dirty faces today

    Noone really seems to care

    I read the graffiti

    In the bathroom stall

    Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall

    And so it seemed to confess

    It didn't say much

    But it only confirmed that

    The center of the earth

    Is the end of the world

    And I could really careless

    City of the dead

    At the end of another lost highway

    Signs misleading to nowhere

    city of the damned

    Lost children with dirty faces today

    Noone really seems to careeeeee

    HEY!

    Part III: I don't care

    I don't care if you don't

    I don't care if you don't

    I don't care if you don't care X5

    I don't careeeeeeeeee

    Everyone's so full of ****

    Born and raised by hypocrits

    Hearts recycled but never saved

    From the cradle to the grave

    We are the kids of war and peace

    From Anaheim to the Middle East

    We are the stories and disciples of

    The Jesus of suburbia

    Land of make believe

    And it don't believe in me

    Land of make believe

    And I don't believe

    And I don't care!

    I don't care!

    Part IV: Dearly Beloved

    Dearly beloved are you listening?

    I can't remember a word that you were saying

    Are we demented or am I disturbed?

    The space that's in between insane and insecure

    Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?

    Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed

    Nobody's perfect and I stand accused

    For lack of a better word, and that's my best excuse

    Part V: Tales of Another Broken Home

    To live and not to breathe

    Is to die in tragedy

    To run, to run away

    To find what you believe

    And I leave behind

    This hurricane of ******* lies

    I lost my faith to this

    This town that don't exist

    So I run

    I run away

    The light of masochist

    And I leave behind

    This hurricane of ******* lies

    And I walked this line

    A million and one ******* times

    But not this time

    I don't feel any shame

    I won't apologize

    When there ain't nowhere you can go

    Running away from pain

    When you've been victimized

    Tales from another broken HOME

    You're leaving...

    You're leaving...

    You're leaving...

    Ah you're leaving home...

    Yes and no

    the full song is titled "Jesus of Suburbia" and it is subtitled in parts, part 2 being "City of the Damned"

    a part of the lyric is:

    " read the graffiti

    In the bathroom stall

    Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall

    And so it seemed to confess

    It didn't say much

    But it only confirmed that

    The center of the earth

    Is the end of the world

    And I could really care less"

    You can find it on their "American Idiot" CD.
