Lyrics

[1]What is going on
Really going on
Is it all for show
How are we to know
What is really going on

Farmer in the dell
Plays the bass so well
Look around and see
Whales he hides in trees
Who on earth is Wesley Wirth

‘Times it feels just like a game
Winner take all and the rest complain
‘Times you stop and wonder why
Better get back in your Buddha mind

Empty out your head
Put your thoughts to bed
Life’s a mystery
Best to let it be
What on earth is going on

[Instrumental Solo]

[2] What is going on
Really going on
Are we just a hoax
Life, a cosmic joke
What is really going on

Farmer in the dell
Laughs, you mention hell
Crazy as can be
That old man is free
Who on earth is Wesley Wirth

‘Times it seems just like a game
Pleasure and pain they can mean the same
‘Times you feel it come untied
All you can say is you weren’t surprised

Leave it all behind
There’s your peace of mind
Trouble goes away
Nothing’s here to stay
What the hell is going on

Who on earth is Wesley Wirth
What the hell is going on
Who on earth is Wesley Wirth

[Additional verse] Tiny specks of dust
Making such a fuss
People are so small
Heaven help us all
What is really going on

Farmer in the dell
Secrets he could tell
Look around and see
Things he grows with pee
Who on earth is Wesley Wirth

‘Times it feels just like a game
How do you know if you go insane
‘Times you stop and check the skies
What did they do with the butterflies

Here today and gone
Maybe then re-born
Life is like a dream
Makes you want to scream
What the hell is going on
