[2003]
Testo e musica di Shelley Cherkis
I just don't know what to believe
'Cause the truth ain't always what ya see
So can somebody give me a clue?
I watch the news, yet I'm confused!
Tell me how do we fight a war for peace?
Sounds like we're just taught to fleece
Is that truth or are we blind?
It's hard to care on the daily grind

Welcome to the revolution
Nothing remains the same
Welcome to the revolution
Survival is the game
Welcome to the new economy
Are ya livin in your car?
Welcome to the revolution
If you don't like things as they are

Is it me or has the world gone mad?
Our state of afairs are so damn sad
They're telling us who to hate
I've got a mind of my own. I ain't taking the bait
Though I didn't learn much in college
I learned life is not all that it seems
When they went and rigged the election
There went the American dream

Welcome to the revolution
Nothing remains the same
Welcome to the revolution
Survival is the game
Welcome to the new economy
Are ya livin in your car?
Welcome to the revolution
If you don't like things as they are

I'm just beggin ya, keep your eyes open
'Cause you don't have the time to cry
As the Enron execs enjoy life on the beach
But your 401K's have run dry
If you're just sitting there watching CNN
Wonderin what happened to your luck
But you don't have the time, got a lot on your mind
You're too busy so oh what the f*#k

Welcome to the revolution
Nothing remains the same
Welcome to the revolution
Survival is the game
Welcome to the new economy
Are ya livin in your car?
Welcome to the revolution
If you don't like things as they are

You're tryin to keep it together
And I'm not tellin ya what to do
But I'm thinkin the answer lies deep in your heart
And not just in the red, white, and blue
So let's not forget what's important
Can we put aside all of our greed?
Can we be there to help one another?
Can we separate want from our need?

Welcome to the revolution
Nothing remains the same
Welcome to the revolution
Survival is the game
Welcome to the new economy
Are ya livin in your car?
Welcome to the revolution
If you don't like things as they are

Can we look at ourselves in the mirror?
And be liken the face that we see?
Can we look in the eyes of our youth and know
This is still the home of the free

Welcome to the revolution
Nothing remains the same
Welcome to the revolution
Survival is the game
Welcome to the new economy
Are ya livin in your car?
Welcome to the revolution
If you don't like things as they are.
