4 Non Blondes – Whats Going On lyrics

What's up

25 years and I'm alive here still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this
Brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry somethimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out what's in my head
And I'm, I am feeling a little peculiar
So I wake in the morning and I step outside
And I take deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin' on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
Oooh...
Oooh...
And I try, oh my God do I try
I try all the time
In this institution
And I pray, oh my God do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution
And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
Just to get it all out what's in my head
And I'm, I am feeling a little peculiar
So I wake in the morning and I step outside
And I take deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin'on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
Oooh...
25 years and I'm alive here still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

    That we have serious problems getting along with each other on this planet. We always seem to resort to violence against each other and/or war. Sometimes in order to tune all that out you need to get high (i do anyway) but then sometimes that just gives you the balls to say "what's going on" their must be a better way. It seems like it's too much to hope for but we're still trying to make people see that violence is not the answer. It's the problem!

    As the national anthem of my life
    is to know that I am not the only one who feels like doesn't feet in this fkng workd, and you live questioning all days what the point? You need to be under all the time and all your life to have a happy marriage? You need to shut up and have your head down to fit in you place in this world?

    It's everyone or atleast most of us that have any ounce of self worth and judging ourselves against our heroes feeling under par. This is a normal and good feeling but nothing to be taken over by, which is why songs like this are so great to let us know, its normal to feel behind and stressed and upside down. This is a good thing, just cry a little, let out a deep breath or a great big yell. -
    Also the "institution", feeling helpless in an ever needy world and watching others do nothing and feeling as if you're just one more of the masses, accept your not.
    There's a lot to this song.
