"Pleasure Dome" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Now I know none of this was planned
It all just kinda happened
I got more than I wanted
But how is still a mystery

Obsessed with this feeling
I trusted it, so I followed it
I'm stripping and stumbling across the land
Full of miracles

Into a world so far from home
Miles and miles from nowhere
Rooms without doors open for me, oh, no
Taking me miles and miles from nowhere
Oh, miles and miles, oh, yeah

Lost in this pleasure dome
Lost in my own pleasure dome

Oh man, I ain't got a clue
How you get out, or how to find this place
I want my control back
But I'm afraid, I'll lose that feeling

Lost in a world so far from home
I'm miles and miles from nowhere
Falling inside my own pleasure dome
I'm miles and miles from nowhere
Oh, miles and miles, oh, yeah

Lost in this pleasure dome
Lost inside my pleasure dome

Lost in a world, can't find my way home
Miles and miles from nowhere
Falling inside my own pleasure dome
Miles and miles from nowhere

Millions of miles, oh no, miles and miles
And miles from nowhere
Miles and miles and miles and miles, oh

Lost in this pleasure dome
Lost inside my pleasure dome, yeah
Lost, lost
Lost, lost

    General CommentThis song based on Rush's "Xanadu", which was inspired by the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem, "Kubla Khan".

    General CommentThat's what I heard as well, Fen. I don't know for sure though, so I'm just going with your explanation.

    Kind of annoying how there's only this many comments. This is one of my favorite songs on F.U.C.K.

    General Commentits interesting to point out that it is based around Rush's "Xanadu" since that song has the words "pleasure dome" in it.
