What's Going On? Lyrics

Just another day.
Seems like everybody's, got a problem.
No one knows how
but, we all wanna solve 'em.
And you can give a dime, give a hand, give a shit.
Or you could look away and never deal with it.
For example, this girl's pretty fly for a while gal.
And all the guys want her though she's a juvenile.
She's really kinda sad, and just don't care,
cuz the only one she wants is her best friend Claire.

What's going on, what's going on?
Ready or not? (not)
The world moves on and on and on and on and on and on and on. . .
yo what's going on?

(CHORUS)
There's nothing much to me.
I'm simple like you, ordinary.
My tired eyes can see,
that time may fly and what's left is meant to be.
And I'm lookin' out, and you're lookin' in.
It's takin' more than time to erase the stain.
And it's never been the same.

Any city.
A girl turns 17.
She goes to a party.
She and her girls are
drinkin' Bicardi ever since they walked through the door.
All the guys have been flexin', trying to score.
But she's a good girl, so she won't have none of that.
She takes another sip,
but she has no clue,
of the spike from the G to the H to the B.
She wakes up in the morning bruised, raped on the street.
What's going on, what's going on? Ready or not? (not)
The world moves on and on and on and on and on and on and on
. . . yo what's going on?

(CHORUS)

In a small town
Every kid that you know goes to school.
He's really kinda shy and he's not that cool.
He knows what it's like to look in from the outside,
inside, wants someone to confide.
Everyone's busy, no one's got the time.
He takes his dad's gun
and says this is how I'll shine.
BOOM BOOM BOOM,
and the kids fall down on the ground . . .
dumbfound.
What's going on, what's going on?
Ready or not? (not)
The world moves on and on and on and on and on and on and on. . .
yo what's going on?

(CHORUS)

i'm surprised nobody has commented on this one yet. i like to turn this one up really loud in my car and sing along. the lyrics aren't exactly uplifting, but i enjoy it. excellent song.

Really great song... But what's the "but she has no clue, of the spike from the G to the H to the B" stuff?

Really great song... But what's the "but she has no clue, of the spike from the G to the H to the B" stuff?

GHB = Gamma-HydroxyButyrate = The Date Rape Drug!!! A small amount of GHB mixed with alcohol can put you into a temporary coma, or kill you. In the song, the guys at the party spiked the girl's drink with GHB, which knocked her out, and then they raped her. So there's what the whole "But she has no clue, of the spike from the G to the H to the B" line means. Peace.

Does anybody know what all those stats are at the end of the song? The stuff about 1 in so many women is a victem of a violent act, and stuff about kids bringing guns 2 school?

An error occured.

800,000 (3%) 6th through 12th grade students carried a gun to school last year.

Appariently this is true, more of these stats can be found here: cj.msu.edu/~outreach/safe_schools/stats.html
