"Pearl of the Stars" as written by Atticus Ross and Claudio Sanchez....
Each night, I wish to God he'd let her rest.
Oh, this hurts me more than any man can bear.
She's my angel from the west.
There will never be one to take her place.

When you go, I will know.
Follow you to the stars.
And when the world burns apart,
There will be a place for your car.

I'd give you everything,
If only I'd have known you'd take it.
But you don't, 'cause you're you.
That's why I'll always love you.
My pearl of the stars.

Oh, the pills she takes, the pain of which she drowns.
A baby sleeps next door, she's new in town.
I'll tell her how wonderful you were.
I'll remember everything you were to me.

When you go, I will know.
Follow you to the stars.
And when the world burns apart,
There will be a place for your car.

I'd give you everything,
If only I'd have known you'd take it.
But you don't, 'cause you're you.
That's why I'll always love you.
My pearl of the stars.

When you go, I will know.
Follow you to the stars.
And when the world burns apart,
There will be a place for your car.

I'd give you everything,
If only I'd have known you'd take it.
But you don't, 'cause you're you.
That's why I'll always love you.

When you go, I will know.
Follow you to the stars.
And when the world burns apart,
There will be a place for your car.

I'd give you everything,
If only I'd have known you'd take it.
But you don't, 'cause you're you.
That's why I'll always love you.
My pearl of the stars.

    General CommentOk so I'll give what I think of this, If you haven't read the book Year of the Black Rainbaw SPOILERS! Anyways there is a chapter in the book titled Pearl of the Stars. This chapters tells of what is going though Pearls mind after being kidnapped by Wilhelm Ryan. They have locked her in a glass coffin that is being suspended above a deep pit. Now clearly this song dosnt sound anything like I just described but my guess is that this is not from Pearls view but from Leonards view. The chapter before this named World of Lines (hint hint another song) Leonard found out about Pearls fate and of his duty to develop the Monstar. So Im guessing this song is him weeping over the missing Pearl. Im done :)

    My OpinionThis is quite possibly one of the best songs ever written. The lyrics, the sound, Claudio's voice. It just fits together so beautifully.

    General Commentthis song is so sad. so very sad. i am glad they added "And when the world burns apart,
    There will be a place for your car."( as in no one will be left park any place XD XD i think) it ads just enough humor so i don't cry all over the place.
    Claudio sings so well on this one i love his voice and he sounds so sad. it ads to it.

    Lyric CorrectionAs a couple people have said already, it should be "Our baby sleeps next door"

    I find this eerily romantic.

    General CommentI'm almost tempted to say he's saying "our baby" instead of "a baby," but I can't be totally sure.

    General CommentThis song and Made out of Nothing (All That I Am) feel to me like the defining songs of Year of the Black Rainbow.
