​What's Going On Around Here

This song is by Rheostatics and appears on the album Whale Music (1992).

Martin Tielli

What's going on around here?
What's going on around here?
When things got strange, when things get rough,
I get tough. What's going on?

80 tons/20 pounds:
Makes no difference when you're down.
If you're too free, just call on me.
I'll chain you down.
What's going on?

I won't tell you about the mountains,
Because there's nothing that gets through you.
I won't tell you about these feelings,
Because there's nothing that doesn't offend you.
There's nothing that doesn't offend you.

Another murder... has come to town.
It was that wasted... infested clown;
His baggy suit, his turned up frown.
Another clown. What's going on?

I won't tell you about the mountains,
Because there's nothing that gets through you.
I won't tell you about these problems,
Because there's nothing that doesn't offend you.
There's nothing that doesn't offend you.
