  • Welcome to the world
    Welcome to the aching world
    A woeful world
    Of broken people

    She's really a good girl
    From a good family, yeah
    They say it's old money
    In the perfect position
    To reach out and heal him

    They would drink her wine
    Whenever she was gone, yeah
    Home sex videos
    Her man was plain wrong
    That girl was plain evil

    Welcome to the world
    Welcome to the aching world
    A woeful world
    Of broken people

    Ah, your sister she's classy
    You you're defying your daddy
    Yet somehow you knew
    That day would come
    There'd be a reprisal

    Welcome to this world
    Welcome to the aching world
    A woeful world
    Of broken people

    Ah, help them out?
    No, you can't help them out
    No, not even you
    They'll break you in two
    They'll break you in two Writer/s: DAVE NAVARRO, DUFF ROSE MCKAGAN, PERRY FARRELL, STEPHEN ANDREW PERKINS
