Description
This song has been bouncing around a while and though it is not finished, I wanted to get it out there for feedback. "What the hell is wrong with everyone?" is a question I ask myself daily, what with we as a society must see and deal with every day. I shake my head most days and needed to get it out in a song.

Lyrics
The left says yes and the right says no
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Come so far but we've sunk so low
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Much too brave typing on our keys
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

All this tech brings us to our knees
What, what, what, what, what tell me…

CHORUS:

What the hell is wrong with everyone?
What the hell is wrong with everyone?
What the hell is wrong with everyone?
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

BRIDGE:

I wish I knew.
I wish I knew.

Ignorance ramping up our fear
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

News says bogeymen-are-everywhere
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Our free speech taking on a chill
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Serve-and-protect has changed to shoot to kill
What, what, what, whoa…tell me...

BRIDGE 2:

But I see a light
and it's oh so bright
Yes it's oh so bright

And I see the day
we're gonna' win this fight.
We're gonna' win this fight
And make things right!

The left says yes and the right says no
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Come so far but we've sunk so low
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

Look for truth, all I hear is lies
What the hell is wrong with everyone?

How many more will they send to die?
What, what, what , what, whoaaaa...

Yeah, oh yeah
Alright, alright...etc.

Thank you!
I like the orchestra suggestion! Maybe even a power strings section like the one that toured with RUSH during their Clockwork Angels tour. Thanks again for the kind words.

Thanks much! I've just been checking out some of your work and it's obvious you've been doing this a long time. Great stuff! Great guitar work and insightful lyrics, especially on your latest effort. I never seem to get things polished and my singing could use some help...but it's just fun for me. I've been away for a while but hope to start doing more. Thanks again!

Nothing wrong!
This is a great rock song. I love the concept, the lyrics, the singing and the playing.

I'd like to see at least one line alternative with "What the hell is wrong with everything" for variety. Say something like .. "Good heavens we can't seem to fix anything" as, say, the third line of the chorus. (Well, not this actual line .. it's just the first thing that came into my mind as an example.) I suggest it simply a possibility : )

All in all .. there's nothing wrong!

There was something about that gritty organ sound that seemed to appeal to a lot of people. Thanks again for your encouraging comments.

What the hell...
So appropriate for society today! Can't wait to hear the finished product. I'm digging it!
MikeNY said 617 days ago (August 21st, 2015)
Thanks, Carrie!
Glad you liked it! Needs lots of work... just wanted to see if people responded to the concept. I think it speaks to a lot of what people are thinking about today...at least that's what "I" think! Thanks again for listening...

Trying to teach myself guitar as I write this! Just never got around to it until now. I've been messing with keyboard sounds for years so that's what you're hearing on this. Thanks for the feedback and the nice comments!

I call myself an assembly musician mainly because I just play by ear, record everything and then slice it all up into parts and reassemble it into something I hope is listenable. I enjoy the process but never seem to have the time to really be as me... [see more]
