We wanted this song to reflect on how disenchanting it can be to live in a country as great as America, yet filled with corruption by many of our elected officials. And they way they think! There’s a lyric “they bomb paradise and smile like it’s all right…” That’s a direct reference to the Bikini Atoll nuclear testing. I was inspired by radio and talk show host Mark Levin. Mark has a way of bringing to light eye-opening new information about what politicians are doing that’s so compelling we felt it was time to write a 2018 song about these issues.
It’s unfathomable to me to bomb a beautiful island with a nuclear warhead just to “try it out” leaving behind a wake of displaced and starving inhabitants, many of whom died or were seriously injured by radiation poisoning. Hopefully Utopia for the Disenchanted will wake us up and make sure something like this never happens again.
