You came to me within a dream
Not everyone is who they seem,
All these words we can't redeem,
Like the great magic of our world,
Corroborated by your words,
Splitting planets into thirds.

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you

To all the leaves that fall in vain,
While god and goddess go insane
All these words in your domain,
The watches kill time as the books read,
Inadvertently we bleed
Fighting for what we deceive,

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you

Leave me alone,
Leave me alone,
Now why can't you see that you always
Perturb me so
Nearing the end of the world, just leave me
Alone
Leave me alone
Why can't you see that you always perturb me
So
Nearing the end of the world, leave me alone,
Leave me alone.

Baby oh baby,
Baby my baby,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you, lalalala,
Baby oh baby,
Baby my babe,
Baby ooh babe
I miss you

    I have always thought of baby as a song for remorse. The person who is singing is telling his ex that he misses her, and wants her back. Unfortunately, she does not return the favor, causing a sad case of unrequited love.

    Really I don't understand how anyone could confuse the meaning of this song. While it can definitely be applied to many different situations the song itself is CLEARLY a break up song and when taken in that context all the lyrics are easily understood. The chorus clearly shows this song as a break up song, and the music video also supports this conclusion.
    "Inadvertently we bleed
    Fighting for what we decieve"
    Is a direct view on love and given the situation his direct feelings on the subject.

    I think the song is about the monotheistic God that is described in the Koran, the Bible and the Tanahk. In his dream the God was female. He misses her because had faith in God when he was younger, but now he takes comfort in an atheistic death.
    Or someone just took LSD one time too many...

    "Inadvertently we bleed
    Fighting for what we deceive"

    The most stand out, important lines of the song. We don't know how we hurt ourselves fighting for something that we can't, won't, or pretend to believe in.

    Have you noticed that, it's pretty seldom when Serj Tankian sings about some girl? Because I have, this is one song where he sings about that thing.
