about

YouTopia is a concept EP about the dystopia within one’s self and how it manifests conflict in today’s society. Like his previous studio effort Where the Lights Go?, Anderson continues on the path of being a genre-bending crooner, blending rock, soul, and electronic music.

Three of the tracks will be released as singles with accompanying videos. The videos are a trilogy, telling the story of a man who is forced to conform in the corporate world, just to reject the system and descend into madness.

Track Name: Clay Pigeon
Clay Pigeon, are you okay?
Not a question, despite what they say
When the sun is down,
free on the run,
Second to none
Now that I'm gone,
plead the second,
Thank God for my gun

I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' A

Clay Pigeon, are you okay?
No longer a question,
you're on your own today
But we're

(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' A

Can you go too far, no matter who you are?
If you can't catch 'em all,
Shoot 'em where they fall

I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' AK
(A-Okay)
I'm feelin' A
Track Name: Absentia
Day to day am I awake,
Lying waste under the shade?
There's a wire to our dreams
Download my memory

Will there be, absentia
If I just pull the plug?
Will there be, anything left?

Face to face, no give and take
Overdosed and well-behaved
The tubes down, in my throat
Feed me till, till I choke

Will there be, absentia
If I just pull the plug?
Will there be, anything left?

Oh disconnect, disconnect the line
Oh disconnect, disconnect the line

Will there be?
Will there be,
Anything?

Will there be, absentia
If I just pull the plug?
Will there be, anything left?
Track Name: Goodbye Serenity
I'm so tired, it's keeping me awake
The growing hatred for my age
These years are yours to take
Before it's too late, I'm outta date and I'm thrown away

Would enjoy today if I could
But I know it's never as good
As what was and what never will be
Serenity

Ooooooo Goodbye serenity
Ooooooo Goodbye serenity
Take a little piece of me

I'm so tired, of goin' new school
Slowly but surely, I'm losing my cool

But then everything ends
Just when you want it to begin
No matter how hard I try
It still passes me by
Serenity

Ooooooo Goodbye serenity
Ooooooo Goodbye serenity
Take a little piece of me

Don't think we're old enough
For us to know a straight goodbye
Goodbye serenity

Don't think we're old enough
For us to know a straight goodbye
Goodbye serenity, Take a little piece of me
Track Name: Lukewarm
Submerge yourself
In a moment unreal
Deep down below
I can almost feel

Over enthused
Dreaming I can win
Just hit the snooze
Like its novocaine

Put my hand in the fire
Till I feel a thrill
Babe, I'm lukewarm, lukewarm
Heads underwater, my body is still
Lookin' for something, someone to hold

Will love remain,
Once I enjoyed it all?
Should I feel pain
When it's my time to fall?

So put my hand in the fire
Let me have a thrill
Babe, I'm lukewarm, lukewarm
My heads underwater but my body is still
Give me something, someone to hold

I'm so enthused baby I can win
Just hit the snooze like it's novocaine

Put my hand in the fire
Till I feel a thrill
Babe, I'm lukewarm, lukewarm
Heads underwater, my body is still
Lookin' for something, someone to hold

Put my hand in the fire
Till I feel a thrill
Babe, I'm lukewarm, lukewarm
Heads underwater, my body is still
Lookin' for something, someone to hold
