Lone

What's Goin' On

Ferdinand Bakker en Michel van Dijk, twee legendarische namen uit de Nederlandse popgeschiedenis. Samen zaten ze in de progressieve rockband Alquin, die in de jaren zeventig een paar bijzondere albums maakte. Nu vormen ze Lone. Voor WTWNN schreven ze 'What's Goin' On', een nummer met eenzelfde gevoel als 'What's Going On' van Marvin Gaye: Hoe wapen je je tegen alle ellende om je heen?

What’s goin’ on ?!

Is everyone here goin crazy

Seem’s like the world is losing its mind

All the cruel indiscriminate killing

Have the eyes of reason gone blind


What’s goin’ on, tell me

What’s goin’ on


Cities filled with the broken hearted

So many unanswered questions and cries

No one sees, no one hears, no one cares

What’s goin’ on


When the the tide is getting high

And you sail against the wind

Hold on


When it’s so dark, you can’t see

And you feel the fire coming

Hold on


What’s goin’ on ?!

The children outside in the field

There’s a laughter that goes on all day

Make’s me wonder have we forgotten

That life is about how we play?

What’s goin’ on?

 

And as sure as blind is the new black

Superficial is now the new deep

So many headlines and soundbites

Up to you which you want to believe


When the the tide is getting high

And you sail against the wind

Hold on


When it’s so dark, you can’t see

And you feel the fire coming

Hold on


Somewhere there must be an answer

A vision to show us the way

Hold on 

It might happen today


Just set your mind at ease

You know you’ll be strong

Hold on
