| I could have tamed you, I could have shown|
That I could depose you from your loud throne
But in the end, I wasn't good enough
I just showed the Gems that I ain't got the stuff
Oh-oh, Wailing Stone!
I tried so hard to fly, but I was thrown
Oh-oh, Wailing Stone!
I gotta tell the Gems 'cause they should know
Have a little, have a little, have a little faith in me!
I just wanted to help. You know, I
Have a little, have a little, have a little expertise!
I know it's not much
But if it could come in handy, I'd wanna be there
I think so highly of you, it just isn't fair
That you have so little faith
A Word From the Composers
“Lapis Lazuli” and “Wailing Stone” from The Message. “Lapis Lazuli” was written by multi-talented storyboarder Hellen Jo, and “Wailing Stone” was written by both Hellen and Rebecca!
I worked with Hellen’s demos to create the guitar arrangements for both songs, then passed it along to our guitarist, Stemage. He added his own touches to make the guitar parts even better and gave fantastic improv performances throughout the episode!"

- This song is sung to the same tune as "Lapis Lazuli", sung by Steven earlier in the same episode.
- After Greg sings the song, he says, "Eh, that's a B-side." This refers to a vinyl record album (Greg is a recording musician, after all), in which the less favorable, less catchy, or generally lower quality songs on the album are recorded on the reverse side of the record (or the B-side), which many people don't listen to.
