Lyrics

[Instrumental in multiple parts] [Short A part 1] "To seek the sacred river Alph To walk the caves of ice To break my fast on honeydew And drink the milk of Paradise" [B part 1] I had heard the whispered tales of immortality The deepest mystery From an ancient book I took a clue I scaled the frozen mountain tops of eastern lands unknown Time and Man alone Searching for the lost Xanadu Xanadu [Synth break 1] [A part 2] To stand within the Pleasure Dome Decreed by Kubla Khan To taste anew the fruits of life The last immortal man To find the sacred river Alph To walk the caves of ice Oh, I will dine on honeydew And drink the milk of Paradise Oh, paradise! [Running instrumental] [B part 2] A thousand years have come and gone but time has passed me by Stars stopped in the sky Frozen in an everlasting view Waiting for the world to end, weary of the night Praying for the light Prison of the lost Xanadu Xanadu [Synth break 2] [A part 3] Held within the Pleasure Dome Decreed by Kubla Khan To taste my bitter triumph As a mad immortal man Nevermore shall I return Escape these caves of ice For I have dined on honeydew And drunk the milk of Paradise Woah, is it paradise? [Outro instrumental]
