    "What's This All About?" provides a commentary about many of the issues facing our society today which leaves many people asking that very question, or perhaps instead the more colloquial "WTF"? From politicians to protestors to cable news and media outlets to social networks and the anonymous bullies, there’s a lack of civil dialogue and respect and too much division in our country. The result is many of us suffering a certain amount of angst, no matter what our ideology leaving so many of us to scream out loud “What’s This All About?”

    As with my previous single release "That's Life", I have continued to work with San Francisco Bay Area producer Joel Jaffe (Flaming Groovies, Ray Manzarek) on this project (and other upcoming songs as well), who once again added some very nice lead guitar touches to the song in addition to his fine production work. Billy Johnson (Santana, Maze) once again provides excellent work on the drums.

    What’s This All About?
    Music & Lyrics by John Hickman

    Everybody wants a revolution
    To overthrow the institution
    Hiding truth behind lies
    With a thinly veiled disguise

    Silence today
    Leads to decay
    Pomp and charade
    Will make the hit parade

    Men of wealth, men of power
    Getting richer by the hour
    It's all there, for the taking
    Many innocent lives are breaking

    Keep getting more
    Of the same as before
    Freedom to choose
    Heads they win, tails you lose

    Makes me want to scream and shout
    What's this all about?

    Growth is shrinking, in reduction
    Got an appetite for destruction
    Tired of sitting, tired of waiting
    Join the party, don't be hating

    Playing the game
    Assigning the blame
    Keep shouting it out
    Till there's no doubt

    Makes me want to scream and shout
    What's this all about?

    Everybody wants a new religion
    Reasoning not superstition
    Smoke and mirrors and confusion
    From the masters of illusion

    So come with me son
    Go get your gun
    Time to reload
    Let's hit the road

    Makes me want to scream and shout
    What's this all about? Show less
