Welcome to Downsville
Welcome to Downsville
Please excuse our dust
We’re drilling holes in the sidewalk
To try to find our Lady Luck
She went out with the garbage
Everything’s gone to shit
Seven years now
Everybody just gets lit

Welcome to Downsville

At first we didn’t know
Why things were going wrong
Why the factory closed down
And the winter was so long
Why little Billy Mulligan
Was found floating in the ditch
Why everybody’s landlord
Was such a son of a bitch

Welcome to Downsville

We dredged up the sewers, so we know she can’t be there
Can’t find her in the rivers and the trees are bent and bare
There’s no word from Missing Persons, since the only hope they’ve found
Is a message in a bottle’s shattered pieces on the ground that say

Welcome to Downsville

Well, one day we’re gonna find her
Everything will straighten up
We’ll trade in our broken shot glass
For a shiny golden cup
We’ll sip sweet wine and wonder
Reminisce about the day
We found her in our pockets
Here in Downsville, USA

Welcome to Downsville
