The Lament of the Celestial Cowboy

Come ride with me, come ride with me, across the inky skies,

Through silvery ghosts of galaxies and faraway divides,

Ripped away from matter and beyond our feeble minds;

Come ride with me, come ride with me, and see what we can find.

 

Come ride with me beyond our world, beyond the cold twilight,

Beyond the dead transitions between day and night,

And when you die away, when the hurdy-gurdy’s done,

Come ride with me, come ride with me, beyond the setting sun.

 

Come ride with me, my friend, through darkness and despair,

Through the voids between galaxies where nothing is there,

Past nebulae and pulsars and supernova lights,

Come ride with me, come ride with me, through endless seas of night.

 

Come ride with me past planets and through infinite space,

You’re tired of this world, my friend, tired of this place,

And when your eyes turn dim and dark, when the battle’s lost and won,

Come ride with me, come ride with me, before the morning comes.

 

Come ride with me away from here, across the celestial nave,

We’ll fly like light and darkness, like particle and wave,

And when your eyes grow cloudy and you die into endless night,

I’ll cut you into photons and transform you into light.

 

Come ride with me, come ride with me, across the inky skies,

Through silvery ghosts of galaxies and faraway divides,

Ripped away from matter and beyond our feeble minds;

Come ride with me, come ride with me, and see what we can find.
