  • Kerplunk

    Dear mother, can you hear me whininí?
    Itís been three whole weeks
    Since that I have left your home
    This sudden fear has left me trembliní
    ĎCause now it seems that I am out here on my own
    And Iím feeling so alone.

    Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes
    Some call it slums some call it nice
    I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home
    Welcome to paradise

    A gunshot rings out at the station
    Another urchin snaps and left dead on his own
    It makes me wonder why Iím still here
    For some strange reason itís still now feeling like my home
    Iím never gonna go

    Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes
    Some call it slums some call it nice
    I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home
    Welcome to paradise

    Dear mother, can you hear me laughiní?
    Itís been six whole months since that I have left your home
    It makes me wonder why Iím still here
    For some strange reason itís now feeling like my home
    And Iím never gonna go.

    Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes
    Some call it slums some call it nice
    I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home
    Welcome to paradise
