about

The Manhatta Dome: a conceptual project to cover midtown in a three kilometer-wide geodesic lens. Spearheaded by visionary engineer Buckminster Fuller, the dome would have "multiple benefits" including the regulation of weather and the reduction of air pollution.

lyrics

Plexiglass for temperature control
and atmosphere for every single room in the house.
A think tank for the population’s booming
making Manhattan seem small.

Here comes the roar of the population rumble
and the crowded disposition running every single bubble in town.
Three hundred sixty ways of looking out the window
making Manhattan seem tall.

Now you’re free to roam
under your new home,
with a city that’s a living under pressure dome.
Now you’re free to see
the future country
with a habitat constructed for the family.
Anything he say
you better disobey
because the future’s made of clay,
a geodesic, warm display.
Come on and work it out.

Gas exchange, molecular control,
and Victorian kitsch for every single night in the house.
Empire State with the stereoscopic vision
has the view of a contact lens.

We’re gonna change the energy conservation twofold,
we’re gonna change the systems of oppression untold:
a cure for cancer, necromancer, modern dancer
from the comfort of your own biosphere

when you’re free to roam
under your new home,
with a city that’s a living under pressure dome.
Now you’re free to see
the future country
with a habitat constructed for the family.
Anything he say
you better disobey
because the future’s here to stay
a geodesic, warm display.
Come on and work it out.
