Welcome To The Underground

Lyrics: Warren Haynes
Music: Warren Haynes

A Warren Haynes song on the album "There And Back Again" by Phil Lesh & Friends.

A lot of strangers out there
A lot of danger out there
A cold, cold world ain't no place to be alone
You look like you could use a friend
I've used a few myself, my friend
That's why were here or didn't you know
Me and you, I think were two of a kind
I've seen enough, I don't need to read your mind

Welcome to the underground
Leave your name on the other side
Do you feel at home, take a look around
Could you cut the throat of a neighbor
Take a good friend and chop him down
Welcome to the underground

There's some permanent fixtures
Statues of our patron saints
The faces change every year or two
Over there's the elevator goes all the way down to hell
Won't go up no matter what you do
"Hey, Kristina, honey if you'd be so kind
It's his first day, see that he has a good time"

Welcome to the underground
Leave your name on the other side
Do you feel at home, take a look around
Could you cut the throat of a neighbor
Take a good friend and chop him down
Welcome to the underground

"I used to run with the Kennedys
Hang out with the Trumps
I've got pictures, guess they're in my other coat
I've been screwed, blued and tattooed, raked across the coals
And it ain't no joke, feel like I'm falling, falling, falling, falling, falling"

Welcome to the underground
Leave your name on the other side
Could you feel at home, take a look around
You might see somebody famous
Maybe even a hero if you stick around
Welcome to the underground
