They've covered the city with a plastic dome
So the air inside could be clean,
And it's really fine in our new home
We have everything we need.

There are no planes, no buses or trains
And if you wanna go somewhere,
Just think about where you'd like to be at
And before you know it you're there.

Living in the future in a plastic dome
Sounds mighty strange I agree,
But now I call it home sweet home
That's where I long to be, yeah,

Living in the future in a plastic dome
Sounds mighty strange I agree,
But now I call it home sweet home
That's where I long to be.

Now if you're hungry for food or drink
Just go to the teller machine;
You place your order and you just have to think
And look at the video screen.

But if you're lonesome and you think you would
Like to have a friendly chat,
Just talk to the teller machine
And the teller machine will talk back.

Hey, living in the future in a plastic dome
Sounds mighty strange I agree,
But now I call it home sweet home
That's where I long to be, yeah,

Living in the future in a plastic dome
Sounds mighty strange I agree,
But now I call it home sweet home
That's where I long to be.

    General Comment"I have this sort of plot for a science-fiction book which I haven't written yet, which is that things get so bad and polluted that uh everyone moves in the geodesic domes and inside the domes it's really nice, you know. And this is a little song about how... how wonderful it's gonna be living inside these big domes, y'know."
