Utopia (/juːˈtoʊpiə/) is an ideal community or society possessing highly desirable or perfect qualities. The word was coined in Greek by Sir Thomas More for his 1516 book Utopia, describing a fictional island society in the Atlantic Ocean. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempt to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature. It has spawned other concepts, most prominently dystopia. more »

I have been ringing your doorbell,
 But you left me standing in the hall
 And you make love by the numbers,
 That doesn't mean there's any love at all
 Now there you go with a big explanation
 Why do you waste your time?
 And there you go, under estimation
 Of the thoughts that cross my mind
 This is your promise that you put up for sale
 It's done like a picture from a fairy tale,
 But still there's a difference, let me show it to you,
 This is crapola, this is shinola
 I see you're still in the headlines
 You pegged the latest trend again this week
 I'm not impressed by the outfit,
 Or your revolutionary chic
 And here it comes,
 I see you forming the words, you're performing the exercise
And here it comes,
 It's the feeling that I heard the same speech a hundred times
 This is the jabber of a chimpanzee
 The motion of your mouth looks much the same to me
 The differentiation might be hard to see,
 But this is crapola, this is shinola
 Everyone's talking, few of them know
 The rest are pretending, they put on a show
 And if there's a message I guess this is it
 Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit
 And here it comes,
 Now I'm forming the words, I'm performing the exercise
 And here it comes
 It's the feeling that I've made the same speech a million times
 These are your leaders, come on take a look
 They'll lie and cheat and steal then sell the rights to the book
 And these are your neighbors who have swung to the right,
 But you don't have to worry just as long as you're white
 And my generation is just waiting to die
 We'll swallow anything if it would just get us high
 I don't know who's a bigger fool,
 But one thing I know
 This is crapola, this is shinola
