"Babel" as written by Robert Del Naja, Martina Topley-bird, Neil Davidge and Grantley Evan Marshall....
Say it was your babel
Say it was my babel
It was my babel
Tell all people

Now you know it's over rolling off her shoulder
You can take a ladder to the shadows and forget
Was it how she kissed you and then dismissed you
Was it purposeful and was it just to hook you in

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing
Breaking, hating till you lost it all
Where was your girlfriend, he was not your ?
Where you were going, you're on your own

He was quick to burning
He was slow to learning
Though inside your misty
He still kissed her when she cried
And did your best to please her
And then get up and leave her
You befriended the harsh way it ended now sleep tight

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing, gracing
Breaking, hating till you lost it all

    Lyric CorrectionSay "it was her babel"
    Said it was my babel
    It was my babel
    Tell all people

    Now you know it's over
    Rolling off her shoulder
    You can take a ladder to the shadows and forget
    Was it how she kissed you and then dismissed you
    Was it purposeful and was it just to hook you in

    Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing
    Breaking, hating till you lost it all
    Well you lost your girlfriend, she was not knowing
    Where you were going, you are on your own

    He was quick to burning
    He was slow to learning
    Though his eyes were misted
    He still kissed her when she cried
    You did your best to replace her
    You didn't up and leave her
    You befriended the harsh way it ended
    Now sleep tight

    Hallucinating, chasing, changing, pacing
    Bracing, breaking, if you lost it all
    Was it all your good
    Reachin into it
    That lead you to me
    I would have craved the love

    I wanna be the one that should've said "You do not dare"
    I'm running so far out of my head
    This rain of heart that ripples my day
    Can never said what was thinking, wait
    Mmm...

    I'm almost positive these are the correct lyrics.
