The world's best country-western song about faster-than-light travel and special relativity


DOOLITTLE
Let's have some music in here, Boiler.

BOILER
Sure thing!
A million suns shine down
But I see only one
When I think I'm over you
I find I've just begun
The years move faster than the days
There's no warmth in the light
And how I miss those desert skies
Your cool touch in the night
Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxies; my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I
Now the years pull us apart
I'm young and now you're old
But you're still in my heart
And the memory won't grow cold
I dream of times and spaces
I left far behind
Where we spent our last few days
Benson's on my mind
Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
My body flies the galaxies; my heart longs to be there
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I
My word, but Dark Star has indeed grown on me since the last time I watched it.

Tomorrow: Socratic dialogue with a bomb.
