​Welcome To The Real World

This song is by Jane Child and appears on the album Jane Child (1989).

Fact is often much stranger
Than fiction, no danger
It's easy to ignore it
Hide your head and don't look for it
Ain't no way to run a universe
Someone's holding the strings of the purse
Got his finger on the trigger
Will he pull it, do you figure

Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to
To the real world

Who's winning the human race
Who's running, who's setting the pace
Makes my blood boil in defiance
I fall to my knees and pray for guidance
It's raining, it's pouring
The old man is snoring
Went to bed with a hole in his head
And didn't wake up in the morning

Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to
To the real world

Let the world see
Let yourself be
Love each other
Just like you and me
Something's got to give
Better sooner
Than later
Hey, oh no

Somewhere, someone
Somehow, someday
We will find a way
Somewhere, someone
Somehow, someday
Hey
Oh
Oh, no

(Welcome
To the real world)

(Who's winning the human race
Who's running)
Who's running
(Who's setting the pace)
Who's setting the pace
(Makes my blood boil)
Yeah
(In defiance)
Defiance
(I fall to my knees)
I fall to my knees
(And pray for guidance)

Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to
To the real world

Welcome to
(Somewhere, someone)
To the real world
(Somehow, someday)
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to
To the real world
Welcome to
(Somewhere, someone)
To the real world
(Somehow, someday)
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to, to the real world
Welcome to
To the real world
Welcome to
(Somewhere, someone)
To the real world
(Somehow, someday).
