ADAM ANT lyrics - What's Going On

ADAM ANT
"What's Going On"

Is there a mask behind the face?
Is it a sleeveless ace?
Can a smile conceal a sneer?
How do we see clear?
Answers can change the question line
Every time
And now the truth is confidence
Tells a lie

What's going on?
What's going on?

Remember all the cracks we feared
Beneath the clear veneer
Well, now, they're bursting wide apart
Is this just the start?
How does it feel to lose control
Feels like Hell
So who's a friend and who's a foe?
Can we tell?

[Chorus:]
What's going on?
I wanna know
What's going on?
I wanna know
What's going on?
I wanna know
What's going on?
I wanna know

It's really no surprise, keep looking back
It's easy being wise after the fact
But at the time it seems such a harmless trend
You gotta take more care, you have to be prepared to stand

[Chorus]

What's going on?
I wanna know
What's going on?
I wanna know
