As the leaves do fall from the trees The weather depression draws near While the flames of passion extinguish It’s everyone’s fave time of year I curse the axial tilt Cry over milk that spilt While I am stringing up lights My heart falls to pieces as azimuth decreases Causing the endless of nights While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round As the sun sets sooner each day The shadows grow longer and creep You could try to fight through the darkness but It’s easier to fall asleep It feels so much later Far from the equator But without you the earth will turn round The tropic of cancer will yield no answers The clouds will deaden the sound While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round It’s hard to feel your face While you're drifting through space To shadows you have to relent You may lose trajectory A sine of this vector, see When apathy’s omnipresent While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round While we watch the sun fall We’ll dance The SAD Waltz Hoping to turn things ‘round

Hello I’d like to introduce myself As candidate for president of the United States I’d like to help you all I can According to the facts up on this chart To which I point with my tentacle I’ll increase productivity by enslaving all humans I have won your nomination But now I must shift to the center And so I’ll reveal our master plan As I recite another quip The point is that we'll enslave you And force you to strip your own planet Of all its natural resources As we return them to our ship We will make a better place to live We will make a better place to live And now that I have won this election I might as well tell you Your corpses will be used as toys For our children to teeth on And many of you will be used as farms From which we’ll drink your blood Forever in a cage, so there’s no way That you can run We will make a better place to live We will make a better place to live For us Not you Why so surprised? You needn’t be terse I mentioned “enslavement" in the second verse We’ve won We’ve won We’ve won

We orbit each other as we yearn We feel each others’ pull and burn As we dance I see us turn / increasingly so fast They say we may be past our prime No we’re not Gs, we’re not that type Cannot escape attraction this time / to each others’ mass They see us as black holes Or maybe neutron stars If they listen closely They’ll hear us very far When you and I We both collide They’ll see from far away You and I— We will make Great Waves The speed of light cannot be changed Lasers set, mirrors arranged To sense when we have bent their space / by fractions of protons They'll make a world-wide network Of interferometers And we’ll combine our talents to Make a show that can be heard When you and I We both collide They’ll see from far away You and I— We will make great waves Einstein said that generally In terms of relativity When massive bodies make activity / for lightyears we’ll bend space The next act is a nova But now’s our time to shine We’ll create some ripples Throughout space and time When you and I We both collide They’ll see from far away You and I— We will make great waves
