This song has five parts, so they're like chapters:
Jesus of Suburbia has nothing left to do. He's been on the streets. He stands alone again. So where else to go? Home.
Part 1, the Death of St. Jimmy.
He's leaving the streets, he's going back, he's leaving Jimmy behind. He realizes that turning away wasn't the answer, and he's gained nothing from it except knowledge that life is no better in a different atmosphere. He hoped for too much, and got nothing in return. St. Jimmy kills himself, in a sense, in Jesus of Suburbia's mind, he's gone. Still, there's no one who cares, and nobody cares.
Part 2, East 12th St.
It tells us that Jesus of Suburbia met and accepted conformity, got a job, and is just in his own world as people move around him. He'd rather be out and around with 'the underbelly', his friends. He feels trapped. Alone, and again, must get away. "This lifelike dream ain't for me"...
Part 3, Nobody Likes You.
He's still depressed about losing Whatsername, as he waits for her to return, but no luck. All of his dreams at this point are shot to hell, as her voice still pounds in his head "NOBODY LIKES YOU, EVERYONE LEFT YOU..."
Part 4, Rock 'N Roll Girlfriend.
In the inlay, is shown as a postcard from "Tunny," who seems to be another person Jesus of Suburbia met while on the streets. Tunny explains that he's living it up where he is, and the rebel life he leads, while Jesus Of Suburbia is rotting with his dead end job, in his dead end life.
Part 5, We're Coming Home Again.
It is Jesus of Suburbia accepting things. He's coming to the realization of everything and everyone, and is just accepting it. He comes home. It's left on a confusing note. He's not sure if he's happy or sad, he's just home, living, and he just... is.
