"Lapis Lazuli" is a song sung by Steven in "The Message" that is dedicated to Lapis Lazuli. It is written when Greg Universe attempts to compose a new song for his new album called Water Witch. Greg improvises the song and portrays her as a villain because he doesn't know about her predicament. However, Steven cuts him off and explains that he thinks of Lapis Lazuli as a friend and explains why she was so angry and scared but changed her ways for the better.
The song is available to stream on Spotify.
| She was trapped in a mirror|
And it couldn't be clearer
She wanted to leave this place
And get herself back in space
| And dad you might think she's a criminal|
But her friendship comes through subliminal
| Lapis Lazuli, you fled into the bottom of the sea|
Lapis Lazuli, you were so mad, but then you came around to me
A Word From the Composer
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!"

- Its tempo and tune are very similar to Greg's song later in the episode, "Wailing Stone". The song also resembles "Dear Old Dad", from "House Guest".
