Welcome to my town It's a wet land, not a dry town It's a "see you later" put down It's an all-day drive-in drive-around. Come round to my town It's got everything you want now It's a grown-on grown-up playground It's an all-day drive-in drive-around.
Welcome, the camera's on To follow you as you go home And check on everything you own It's good to know you're not alone. Welcome to my abode With information overload The police are watching every road Yeah they've got cameras too you know.
Welcome to the neon signs The going nowhere double lines The traffic as it slowly grinds The never getting out on time. With motorways on every side Running through and passing by Even motorways up in the sky And motorways for God on high.
Come into a town so bright With longer days and endless nights Think you're such a pretty sight Being seen and being right. Welcome to a town so fair A place where you can taste the air Just live behind a vacant stare And make believe you're getting there.
Welcome to my town... Got to stay awake now... Welcome to my town... Straighten up, shake down.
In a town full of studios It ain't what you do, it's who you know Not who you are, but what you show That gets you where you want to go. Following the media whores Following the loud applause Onward through those sliding doors Onward to another cause.
Be part of the vanity The ecstacy, the tragedy All the things you want to be Are all for you, but not for free. Come let everybody take All the money you can make Trying to relieve an ache You're the sucker, your mistake.
Seeing life through deadened eyes Trying to be civillised It'll come as no surprise When someday you realise Yesterday was born too late Tommorow said it couldn't wait There'll be no-one left to hate Standing at the pearly gates.
So welcome to the common place The filthy look, the dirty face With half a mind below the waist A tribute to the human race. Look at all those little boys Turning into bigger boys Turning on their bigger noise Playing with their bigger toys.
Welcome to my town... Coupé sans toupé... Welcome to my town... Nothing on top.
