"What's Going On" is a song written by ThornBrain's dad Mike Scholl. ThornBrain released a cover of it on his debut album, BlackholeWhitespace.

AboutEdit

The song is one of three covers Thorn recorded of his dad Mike's music for BlackholeWhitespace, "What's Going On" being one of the oldest behind "Void". Unlike "Void" and "Dirty Old Ghost Town", Thorn did not know the original lyrics, so he adapted what he heard from the original song into new lyrics.

Thorn's version is largely unchanged from Mike's original, though Thorn found his own version came out much weaker. The song is recorded entirely without bass.

LyricsEdit

What's going on

It's like I'm in this sorry state
Where I don't want to be
I'm the king of over-anxious thoughts
Which underrate my deeds, hey

What's going on
What's going on with me
Left, right, the middle course
This thing called wasted sea

Oh we pick on all the good hearts
Trying to write the truth
At least his smile is big enough
It brings all the grief, yeah

Next time when you come around, you'll be
Hoping for a sunny dream
Like when I tell you how I feel
Inside I wanna scream, hey

What's going on
What's going on with me
What's going on
What's going on with me

I'm coming to a screeching halt
Like I just slapped all my kids and
Maybe that's what it takes before I
Can finally face my fears, I'm

Doing the heimlich on myself
Resenting words I've said
Look at my reflection in the mirror
I see this giant head say

What's going on
What's going on with me
What's going on
What's going on with me

Now we sell t-shirts
Writings on the cave walls

What's going on
What's going on with me
What's going on
What's going on with me

What's going on
What's going on with me
What's going on
What's going on with me
