The Road To Utopia (2019)


The Road To Utopia – Harvey Dog (2019)

Get the suitcase out
time to get it packed,
check the weather
is it going to rain?
Where are the maps?
Where are the maps?
Do we even know where we’re going?
We have to be absolutely positively sure
we know where we’re going.

Who’s looking after the dog?
I don’t know about this
I don’t know
are we doing the right thing?
Should we go back from where we came?
Should we go back to what we know?
I like to be told what to do,
No!
we gotta change
we gotta change

Tension is a teacher,
silence is the answer,
we’re on the road
The Road to Utopia

Take a left, take a right,
oh look there’s a hospital gate,
I hope we’re early
I hope we’re not late,
The journey’s just begun
are you having fun?
I heard of a place
a faraway place.

Take a left, take a right,
make love with the mainstream,
everywhere is nowhere
nowhere is everywhere,
let your mind flow,
can you feel it?
potential
can you feel it?
it’s alive!
Is it wrong, is it right
is it dark, is it light,
I know of a place
a faraway place.

Tension is a teacher,
silence is the answer,
we’re on the road
The Road to Utopia

It was always here
It was already here
We were already there
Utopia is everywhere!

Notes

  • The urge to work on a new words, sounds & video creation was too strong to resist. I put aside the work I’m doing on Big Project #1 and spent a couple of weeks focused on this baby. Back to Big Project #1!
  • There are 3 quite distinct sections for this one. The 1st is the worry and anticipation of a trip, then a hostile journey that somehow ends in peaceful bliss.
