Autotopia

BandAlternativeAvant-garde

Autotopia plays baroque synth rock exotica with some softcore porn horror flick dream sequence overtones. Duelling fuzz basses, Synthesizer, Banjo, Organs, vocoder, guitars, Mellotron (samples), and mandolin. Like Nick Drake meets Twin Peaks, or the Pixies meet the Rosemary's Baby soundtrack.

Lyrics

Walrus

Written By: Jody Hughes

And East of the elderly man
there lived a heavenly man
and his wall is down

And East of the heavenly man
there lives an ebony man
he's the talk of the town

Just out of the box it came
from beyond the sea and ever more
and because the weight that it weighed
it was the talk of the town
council to the crown

Bridge:
I don't care, I don't like
Don't feel, so bright

would you care, would you feel
would you steal, steal my mind

Can you climb, the mountain
I can't see, I can't dream

The Village, The Doctor
The Patient, And The Son

And west of the elderly man
There lived an ivory man
And his phantom pains

Ignorance is bliss you say
It’s latest cure
No matter how insane

Consulting the medicine man
With his son wide-eyed
And the Box is Bare

and because the weight that it weighed
it was the talk of the town
council to the crown

Your Skeleton

Written By: Jason McCormick

Your Skeleton

There goes a story that has been said
That you don’t know enough to be dead.

What is the man saying?
Where is my spine?
When is my time?

Your skeleton is living now.
Who knows where, who knows how?

You went from the palace into the plumb.
Now, where, is your power?
Come the next winter you will be dead
And I will live instead!

The stonewall Jackson Brigade rides beside you
As you slide into the grave.
A dead man will rise again-
Your skeleton.

In a Forest

Written By: Jody Hughes

Town of words
oh so good
I don't mind failing.
Town of churches
Oh so strange and
intertwined for now.

Waiting and watching
not waiting now.
Waiting and watching
not hating pricks.
