thanks for the suggestions!
my english teacher suggested a poem by Robert Gray.
since i'm already familar with it it should be easier than starting from scratch.
thanks for your help and good luck!

Not a great idea to use a Poem to relate towards a poem. If you want to wow the markers then you'd better opt for a better choice. Although if it's your last choice then I guess so.

Here possible related text on physical journeys : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SNv3o_yhkk

Some Points you could mention are:
-The
central goal of the journey in this text is to relinquish their thirst for hunger
-
The road is seen to be the medium in which the 2 protagonists travel on, presenting the continous nature of their physical journey
-
Hyperbole of "looking in your underwear" further reinforces their designated path of fulfilling this physical journey
- The use of a metaphor to convey that life is a journey itself, where their life after school is to go find some "good food"
-
The encompassing and inappropriate use of clothing provides the message of diversity in the search and quest for "good food"

As you can see, these points discuss how both the lyrics and the music video can capture the essence of the physical journey.
