I see the Moon, the Moon sees me.

the Moon sees somebody that I don’t see.

God bless the Moon and God bless me.

And God bless the somebody that I don’t see.

If I get to Heaven before you do

I’ll make a hole and pull you through.

And I’ll write your name on every star,

that way the world won’t seem so far.

The astronaut will not be at work today.

Neal Stephenson is the author of the three-volume historical epic “The Baroque Cycle” (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World) and the novels Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac.

“I saw the best minds of my generation creating spam filters.”
