Standing on the bridge is Captain Reynolds
Wash will fly the ship to the ground
Jayne wants his grenades, Captain Mal vetos
Zoe indicates we’ll burglarize, not occupy

Job is going down until the Reavers
Descend into the town, terrorizing
Mule is given chase, faster is better
Missing the grenades, against them all fights Captain Mal

4…3…2…1…
Verse beyond us
keep on flying
Soaring reckless
This boat is my home…

Settling the job, they land in Beaumonde
Kaylee has a want, “I can’t know that”
River knocks out Jayne and several others
Trigger flipped her brain, the tale is told, never gets old

Contact Mr. Verse, can’t stop the signal
Miranda is the word, secret broadwave
Lost without a trace, the hidden planet
Fly through Reaver space with damaged ship, “I mean to live”

4…3…2…1…
Verse beyond us
keep on flying
Soaring reckless
This boat is my home…

A planet bathed in light, a secret message
“We meant it for the best…”, then blood and gore

Speech from Captain Mal, the time is coming
Reveal the truth to all in the ‘Verse
You all got on this boat for different reasons
I’m asking for support, with this I aim to misbehave

Verse beyond us
keep on flying
Soaring reckless
This boat’s my home…

Verse beyond us
keep on flying
Soaring reckless
This boat’s my home…

Verse beyond us
keep on flying
Soaring reckless
This boat is my home…
Home…..
