St. Jimmy song meaning

Have you ever noticed how a shy little boy suddenly starts acting all cool and dangerous after changing schools? When you come to some new place where no one knows you, you get a chance to put on an act so everyone thinks you're cooler than you actually are...So, after entering the City and realizing his own loneliness and vulnerability, Jesus decides to create a new self, a whole new person, a true rebel, a cold-blooded city resident - one that Jesus has never been.

From the first words of the introduction of Jimmy he's being described as this awesome son of a bitch shining with coolness - the kind of guy easily impressible teenage boys would want to be. Confident as hell and self-sufficient, Jimmy claims to be the "patron saint of the denial" and therefore refers to himself as "St. Jimmy". In his attempts to be accepted by the new environment, Jesus suppresses all kinds of love in himself and turns into a reflection of rage that's been brewing inside of him. There's no more "son of rage and love" - now there's a product of the victimized society, the martyr of war and fear, St. Jimmy.
