Green Day – Welcome To Paradise lyrics

Dear mother,
Can you hear me whining?
It's been three whole weeks
Since that I have left your home
This sudden fear has left me trembling
Cause now it seems that I am out here on my own
And I'm feeling so alone

Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes
Some call it the 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 I'm still here
For some strange reason it's now
Feeling like my home
And I'm 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 laughing
It's been six whole months since
Since that I have left your home
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
For some strange reason it's now
Feeling like my home
And I'm never gonna go

Pay attention to the cracked streets
And the broken homes
Some call it the slums
Some call it nice
I want to take you through
A wasteland I like to call
My home
Welcome To Paradise

    Or It's about a guy who is sick of the good life and wants to experience it for himself and so he leaves and months later he finds himself missing home and family and friends and perhaps bumps into them and then shows his mother the place he lives in and as he says 'Some people call it slums, some people call it nice'and makes his mother understand what a good life he leads and to him it's Paradise!
