"Dome" as written by and Wilson-piper/kilbey/daugherty/koppes....
I saw this film about some people who lived in a dome
In a beautiful field next to a river of foam
I fell asleep before it was over
I must have dreamt of the end
They'd be young forever as long as they stayed in the dome
But barbarians came and set fire to their home
Exposed the dome dwellers to the outside
They must have known it was the end
All of their wealth couldn't save them
All died inside the flames
Destined to make that same old mistake
God that's such a shame
The barbarians picked through the ashes of the dome
Then went on their way, yeah, continued to roam
But a curse was laid upon them
They must have known it was the end
All of their strength couldn't save them
All died inside the flood
Destined to make that same old mistake
The way of all flesh and blood
I saw this film about some people who lived in a dome

    General CommentThis song is an allegory about the human condition and how history repeats itself. But the message of this song is that while people develop cultures and build civilization, they have this innate hubris that causes them to believe their ways are superior and they need not respect the ways of others and believe they'll be around forever.....Only to be blown into dust by the wind of sudden change.
