To a paragon Of all the traits in us I hope should carry on A light that'll ne'er be gone As loyal as the captain of the Pharaon And just a hair beyond I'll amass it all The courage and the heartstrength of a mastodon And I'll pass it on We'll build a babylon With foundations made from all the good that has lived on In you And if the stars fall from your eyes And memory's forgotten I'll still love you And if you're longer for this world than me Just know my last thoughts Will be of you She moved on from me The friend like you I had, but who could talk to me And in all honesty Words are useless if they only end up faltering And forming walls between So I let it go And wondered if a pure, unbiased love could yet be known My guess was no But then my testimony changed Upon my realization of what's best of all In you

Dear serotonin, please kick in soon I've got so many things to do And I can't begin them without your help So please put my mind on somethin' else I was savin' all my money in the hopes she'd come with me I wrote her an opus; she wrote me off Just closed the door and turned the lock So don't let me sleep in for goodness' sake 'Cos even in dreams she turns away

I know...I got it Last one, I promise Purging the remainder Of my heart's container It's funny how the lovers, oh, we never learn We paint the portraits that we know we'll likely burn But living in a picture based on fantasy Is warmer than accepting what will never be My point has long been proven I'll step down as you wish So I guess there's nothing left to say... No, wait, wait Why this doesn't cease to ache, I'll never know Can't put my finger on why I'd still take yours to adorn So browse your line of suitors; I'll stay in my spot I'll stand here at the end and throw you everything I've got At the back of the queue I'll wait in line for you

Major Stone to Ground Control I can't read you anymore Instruments are failing And my skin is paling So I'll give you one last report Jerry and Elise are already gone The suits are no match for the cold And I don't think it's gonna be very long Before I go I don't want a story about me I just want your arms around me If you can still hear me You know all that I've seen But you're the only thing that astounds me Sarah Ophelia Stone I love you
