One thousand people say
It has to be this way
We never taste our food
Our research goes unproved 
Only geodesic domes can save us now

Time is breaking down everything in the ground 
We live vertical lives
Who wants to be flat in this habitat 
We live vertical lives

The last building I saw
Was a thousand stories tall
 Everyone I knew
 Walked through the lawn, and they were gone
 Sometimes I can see them through my window 

We finally have it right 
No longer 'fraid of heights 
We hope you come around 
We'll show you what we found 
Only geodesic domes can save us now
