Hello Cruel World - Eels

Hello cruel world
So this is you
A broken heart
But with a view
I'm looking out to face another day

The angry mob
The happy mass
This birthday cake may be the last
I'm looking out to find another way

Norman rockwell colors fade
All my favorite things have changed
But what the hell
Hello cruel world

I thought i heard an opera star
Who had no home under the stars
She sang and sang and sang the night away

And mother nature changed her name
She doesn't want to play the game
I don't believe she'll ever be the same

So big brother never came
Howdy doody gets the blame
But what the hell
Hello cruel world

Bad and beautiful and strange
Monkeys dancing in a cage
But what the hell
Hello cruel world

Venus demilo grew an arm
And old macdonald bought the farm
Say goodbye
Hello cruel world
