"Lost Like This" as written by and Danny Elfman....
I'm standing all alone out in the pouring rain
And though it really isn't like me to complain
I think I'm getting used to it
I feel happy, and I also feel bad
I've never been here, but somehow I think I have
But I'm getting used to it

I've never been lost like this
I've never been lost like this
But I wouldn't be happy anywhere else
Nobody to tell us what to do all by ourselves

Don't know how I got here and I don't know why I stay
The poets all around are laughing in their graves
Must be something that I said
This place is not like anything I've seen before
The spirits move around, the houses have no doors
But I'm getting used to it

I've never been lost like this
I've never been lost like this
But I wouldn't be happy anywhere else
Nobody to tell us what to do all by ourselves

Isn't this a fine hello
I wish I hadn't seen you go
It's always been a bitter pill
The broken mirror's broken still
The letters never made the post
A thousand more I never wrote
And here on dark, unfriendly streets
I find the comfort that I seek
And I'm happy, and I've been happy

I've never been lost like this
I've never been lost like this
But I wouldn't be happy anywhere else
Nobody to tell us what to do all by ourselves

I've never been lost like this
I've never been lost like this
But I wouldn't be, ha
Yeah yeah yeah yeah wo wo yeah yeah yeah yeah

    General Comment"Lost" here can have different connotations...to me, it can either mean lost within his mind (i.e. daydreaming) or lost in love with someone who has hurt him (Personally, I think it's the first one). Either way, both can drastically alter one's persceptions of the world ("This place is not like anything I've seen before") and actually become so pertinent that the person in question will become dependant upon the feeling it brings ("But I wouldn't be happy anywhere else").
