Your Most Valuable Possession (Album Version)

Ben Folds Five

(6:49 a.m, Friday, November 20th)
"Good morning, Mr. Ben.
It's about 6:30
Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Um, just laying here in the bed,
Half awake, half asleep,
Thinking about you.

I was
Wondering if you were looking after your
Most valuable
Possession
Your mind.

I was thinking about
John Glenn,
His space journey and all.

They said that
When you're in space you lose
Muscle mass
And the body
Mass
And I wondered if there was any
End to it.

Or whether,
If you didn't exercise in space,
How long it would be before you were just
A head, or a mind,
And have no body or arms.
You'd have them but you couldn't use them.

I was wondering if
If your body mass would drop to a certain level,
And then it would stop right there.
And keep whatever you needed to
Use your mind
Because it would still be working."

(30 seconds remaining)

"Anyway, I was just pondering that.
What do you think about, that?

I hope everything is going alright.
I may well wake up here in a little while
And forget what I was thinking about."
