The Road - drawing by 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

  • 3 distinct sections for this one. The 1st section is in the same vein as the “Molasses” songs, the 2nd section is a grungy journey and I morph into a bit of a hostile conductor, and the journey concludes with peaceful bliss.
