Story

I was driving up the highway when I saw a car along the side of the road. The woman behind the wheel had her head in her hands. When I came back by an hour later she was gone. The car was still there. I thought, "Welcome to the New World."

Lyrics

There's a fox in the hen house

There's a bomb on the plane

Someone that you don't know

Is whispering your name

Into somebody's voice mail

Or an answering machine

Welcome to the New World

 

You don't look out your windows

You don't pick up the phone

You don't want anyone to know

That you're there all alone

Are those headlights in the driveway?

Did somebody scream?

Welcome to the New World

 

There's a woman in a car

On the side of the road

Head in her hands

And no place left to go

Her job's on the line

And now the engine blew

There's nothing in her handbag

But a silver .22

 

There's a stray dog on the street

People sleeping in the woods

The man standing in the shadows

He ain't up to any good

Pickin's are getting slim

Everybody wants their share

Welcome to the New World

 

There's a woman in a car

On the side of the road

Head in her hands

And no place left to go

She needs to blame somebody

And all she sees is you

She reaches in her handbag

For that silver .22

Welcome to the New World

Welcome to the New World
