"The Baby Screams" as written by and Robert James Smith....
Heaven
Give me a sign
Waiting for the sun to shine
Pleasure fills up my dreams
And I love it
Like a baby screams
Its so useless
How can you be proud
When you're sinking into the ground
Into the ground fills up my dreams
And I love it
Like a baby screams

Couldn't ask for more you said
Take it all
And strike me
Strike me dead

Waiting again
Waiting
Like I waited before
Waiting again
Waiting here for nothing at all
Heaven fills up my dreams
And I love it
Like a baby screams

Couldn't ask for more you said
Couldn't ever let it end
Take it all
Take it all
And strike me dead

Heaven
Heaven

    General CommentThis song is about frustration, depression, and disillusionment. He has these dreams, but they're useless as they aren't real and he doesn't know how to realize them. He feels helpless, like a baby screaming.
    The end of the song is a response to people who might say something like "it could be worse". He's saying what he has doesn't matter, and he'd rather give it up & die then continue on with his pointless existence.
