about

Inspired by Buckminster Fuller's ill-fated concept car, the Dymaxion.

lyrics

Buckminster Fuller was a man full of desire •
A dreamer and inventor • His brain and heart on fire • On the road to Chicago in his Dymaxion

It could transport eleven at ninety miles per hour • Thirty miles to the gallon • Tear dropped with V8 power • On the road to Chicago in his Dymaxion • To the World’s Fair in Chicago in his Dymaxion

He spent a lot of money • A great vision he had in mind • To change our way of thinking • A better life for all mankind • On the road to Chicago in his Dymaxion • To the World’s Fair in Chicago in his Dymaxion

But alas, the car rolled over • Two survived, but the driver died • The investors pulled their funding • So goes the shifting tide • On the road to Chicago in his Dymaxion • To the World’s Fair in Chicago in his Dymaxion • On the road to Chicago in his Dymaxion
