lyrics

I was just waking up when she called and told me to “turn on the news”
See an explosion had happened and there were bodies everywhere.
They weren’t sure why it’d happen, or who was blame

Just another person lashing out cause of torture or pain
She asked me “why?”
But, wait, let me get it right….cause I don’t want to misquote her.
She said - “why would anybody want to hurt a bunch of strangers?
How is that gonna make their pain go away?”
Welcome to Nebraska
I say goodbye
Good riddance to the rest
All this stuff seems to happen on the coast
You got your LA’s and NOLA’s, you got your NYC’s and your Miami’s
all these disasters, all this death and destruction
but none of these things seem to happen in Nebraska
Nothing ever happens, not in Nebraska
Welcome to Nebraska (nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens)
I say goodbye
Good riddance to the rest (nothing ever happens, nothing ever happen)
All these other places, I’ve been all my life.
Dancing and dodging, just to stay alive.
I’ve lost a lot of friends at the hands of strangers
Something’s calling me home; away from this danger
Home to Nebraska (nothing ever happens)
Welcome to Nebraska (nothing ever happens, nothing ever happens)
I say goodbye
Good riddance to the rest (nothing ever happens, nothing ever happen)
Nothing ever happens in Nebraska.
