      Ignore the thing below if it’s still code (am trying to embed but it stays code so far).  I provided the YouTube link below that but it will probably inflict a commercial on you, or most of you, before the song.

      Someone in Rolling Stone (early 70’s) thought the best concept album was not (of course) Sgt. Pepper or maybe even Ogden’s Nut (don’t think he mentioned that one) but the *British* Mr. Fantasy album.  To me, both the American and British ones are treasures.

      But here’s a song you may not have heard, …it being only on the British _Mr. Fantasy  and never on a single, etc. as far as I know.  It’s way too good for that fate.

      “Seems that I had just to stay
      The birds have flown, the sky’s turned gray
      The bees are baffled by the flowers
      Plastic plants that never die and I
      Hope they never find me here
      I walked upon synthetic grass where metal people said
      “Don’t ask about the field where you once played
      Atomic Factories have replaced” and I
      Hope they never find me here
      The horse I ride has lost a shoe, the petrol pumps are dry
      The car I drive has broken down and the blacksmith trade is dying
      Meals I eat have changed into a concentrated vacuum
      The hour has come for me to run
      Time to leave has just begun
      The world is waiting it’s a fact
      To stage the last and final act and
      Hope I never find me there

      Any resemblance to any real Dystopia is purely coincidental.
