Utopia

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 can't stand to watch the six o'clock news
 It's enough to give an average, sensitive person the blues
 Can't get it up
 I don't know about commercial appeal
 But what you put in your head
 Just can't help affect how you
So lets keep it up
 Prophets of doom try to capture you
 They get around like the Asian flu
 But they can't get me

 Because I go for the up
 I'm on the up side
 I look for the up (That down just ain't my style)
 I go for the up
 I'm hooked on the up
 I'm on the upswing (I got my sights set high)
 I go for the up

 What's the point of standing out in the rain
 What's the sense of looking down
 It just gives your shoulders a pain
 Can't get it up
 It's a self-fulfilling prophecy
 If you look for the worst then that's just
 What it turns out to be
 So keep looking up
 The fickle finger just may point your way
 It touches someone different every day
 But it can't touch me

 Because I go for the up
 And everybody's yelling at me to get back in line
 And they say I'm crazy
 But still they have their sessions of deep depressions
 But it can't get me
 Because I go for the up
