Welcome to the cruel world
Hope you find your way
Welcome to the cruel world
Hope you find your way
It's a cruel world
Try to enjoy your stay

Yes it is a cruel world
When you're tryin' to get by
It's a cruel world
When you're tryin', when you've seen the look in their eye
Makes life hard living
But I'm so, so scared to die

Welcome to the cruel world
Welcome
Welcome

Don't know how
We've lasted here so long?
There must be more good than bad
Or we'd already be gone

And if you get up to Heaven
Before I do
I'm gonna tell ya
It's gonna be cruel there too
Cruel there too

You can't hide from this cruel world
'Cause there is no place to run
You can't hide from the cruel world
There just is there no, no place to run
It's been cruel from the beginning
It will be cruel when we're done

So when I'm gone
I will gladly say goodbye
When I am gone
I will gladly say goodbye
And if you want to feel me, yeah
Put your hands up to the sky

Welcome to the cruel world
Welcome
Welcome

I hope you find your way
Try to enjoy your stay
