Track Name: Lost Dog
i could hear you all the way from the other side of town
your monotonous cries kept me up all night
though we all miss you greatly, you never want to hang around
lost dog, don't cry, it's all right

it was damned if you did and damned if you don't
you really were a pitiful sight
if nothing else gets through to you then as long as you know
lost dog, don't cry, it's all right

and now you can't stop crying
tell me, is this what happens every time?

this isn't the time or place for a girl like you to die
the night is a freak who's just too scared to face the light
for the love of God, just get inside
lost dog, don't cry, it's all right
Track Name: Babylon
I never forgot you
I just had other things to do
But when I heard you crying in the corner alone
Just like I used to
when you'd tell me it's alright
I came to my senses, I'm coming tonight

So it's time to blast off
Take a trip through space
Sail on and on and on
Look you dead in the face

You've taken my life, where have you gone?

You shouldn't look like that
You shouldn't look worse for wear
I demand an explanation for this change
See all the clowns
Jumping and running around
If I can't help you you better keep you safe

Or we can blast off
To another place
I long for different circumstances
To get me through this race

You've taken my life, now where have you gone?

Walk a couple miles further
Down our road, I'm walking slow
Don't feel like much of anything
Don't know where to go

I'm gonna blast off
So if you want to, match my pace
I've got nothing to say to you anymore
Like you
I never leave a trace

You've taken my life, now where have you gone?
You say it's all right but you know it's all wrong
