"The Dog" as written by Raymond Ian Burns, Paul Gray, Christopher John Millar and David Vanian....
She wanders alone through the night
A child with eyes burning bright
She extends her arms for an embrace a tiny smile
Her ruby lips on her doll- like face

The danger's a mystery here
As she invites you to hold her near
Her mirrored image could not be linked to
A woman's mind so sharp and so distinct

Like a swimmer in a secret sea
Undecayed for all eternity
Claudia
Better stay away from Claudia

The silkiness of her lips
As she bends low to kiss
A tiny seductress in ringlets and pearls you reel
In madness as the whole world about you whirls

Like the tinkle of a small silver bell
Her voice will put you under her spell
A crushed crysanthemum in her hand a beautiful doll of death
She'll take your dying breath

Like a swimmer in a secret sea
Undecayed for all eternity
Claudia
Better stay away from Claudia
Like a swimmer in a secret sea
Undecayed for all eternity
Claudia
Better stay away from Claudia
