I've dreamt of this haunt
The ghosts of 1666
The hazy lecture halls
Lund cathedral in wisps

The bells get carried aloft
By the strong nordic wind
But don't remind me of how oft
I got carried away with them

At uni we went
Insane when we took cocaine
Now I don't think I ever want
To hear "genius of love" again

Ive been searching this town
And all I have found
Are nights of bad sex
With stupid boyfriends I shouldn't have kept
In a stupid flat I never swept

So taxi take me away
The sullen students and corner cafes
Remind me of old panda days
Give me old panda days

    General CommentI've been listening to this song for some time, but I just recently got that he sings about Lund cathedral. Lund cathedral is placed in the city of Lund, in Sweden. Hence supposedly the cold nordic winds. The city is a university city, mainly occupied by students, which gives it a bubble feeling, a sense of not being connected to the real world.

    As far as I know, cocaine is not and have never been a very popular drug in Lund, though.
