May be a schitzophrenic personality of JOS
"My name is Jimmy and you better not wear it out
Suicide gone mental that your momma talked about"
The St Jimmy is the spark in the night
Bearing gifts and trust
The fixture in the city lust
What the hell's your name
Whats your pleasure and whats your pain?
Do you dream to much?
Do you think what you need is a crutch
In the crowd of pain. St. Jimmy comes without any shame
He says “we're fucked up”
But we're not the same
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame
Jimmy died today
He blew his brains out into the bay
In the state of mind it's my own private suicide
-The Death of St. Jimmy, American Idiot, Green Day
"it's comedy, and tradgedy/it's st jimmy and that's my name"
It is a song by Green Day, appearing on 6th track of their album, American Idiot.
Some believes that he is the alter-ego of Jesus of Suburbia, who appears on the album earlier.
Some believe that St.Jimmy is another different character who Jesus of Surbubia meets and leads him into doing drugs (Give me Novacaine).
He claims himself to be 'patron saint of denial with an angel face and a taste for suicidal'.
From what I know, he is a son of a divorced mother. He seems to have a tougher personality than Jesus of Surbubia.
Upon the boulevard like a zip gun on parade'
- St.Jimmy by Green Day
And that's my name..................and don't wear it out!"
