  • (Welcome to the world, welcome to the world)
    You got your pop star, I'll be your rock star
    When it's a suicide, you call it superstar
    Check out the forecast, predictions wont stop
    You get your fifteen, and then they take the spot

    Let's go, let's go, and then you're ready to go
    Let's go, let's go, 'cause it's the end of the show
    Let's go, let's go, so just get ready to go
    Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go

    All the time that you were gone,
    I thought about how things went wrong
    Now you're coming down to earth
    Okay, hello, welcome to the world

    She saw the bright lights, she caught the fever
    She got contagious, she never leave it
    So no more time spent and no more free shit
    In fact this free ride has reached its destination

    Let's go, let's go, and then you're ready to go
    Let's go, let's go, 'cause it's the end of the show
    Let's go, let's go, and when it's over you'll know
    Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go

    All the time that you were gone,
    I thought about how things went wrong
    Now you're coming down to earth
    Okay, hello, welcome to the world

    Let's go, let's go, and then you're ready to go
    Let's go, let's go, 'cause it's the end of the show
    Let's go, let's go, so just get ready to go
    Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go

    All the time that you were gone,
    I thought about how things went wrong
    Now you're coming down to earth
    Okay, hello, welcome to the world (to the world, to the world)

    Welcome to the world (to the world, to the world)
    Welcome to the world (to the world, to the world)
    Welcome to the world (to the world, to the world)
    Welcome to the world (to the world, to the world) Writer/s: William Roberts, Ivan Corraliza, Kevin Rudolf, Jacob Kasher Hindlin

  • Shawn from Prescott, AzI hate the rap in the song it ruins the rock should have just left it rock.
    I know people who have seen the bright lights and cought the fever and need be welcomed back to the real world.
