Patriot – Beth Kinderman

Oh no, I can’t believe the things I’m hearing in my voice
As it turns out, if you want power you have to give up every choice
Once I could have kept myself safe on the floor
But my shoes are too tight and I don’t dance anymore
Guess my one chance now is to turn away
And hope you can forgive me someday

This is about Londo Mollari, but I recommend it even if you haven’t watched Babylon 5, because it definitely fits a number of characters. “Patriot,” by Beth Kinderman.  Download here.

5 Years – Tom Smith

5 Years (Babylon 5) by Tom Smith

Hot like Ivanova and Talia,
we’re gonna Draal ya,
and then we’ll kick a little Zathras.

Yesterday all the Narns were freed
but there’s still something keeping hold on Centauri.

We’ll get a room on Z’ha’dum,
the ship’ll zoom and then go BOOM (shakalaka)
‘cos there’s always one tomorrow.
