Satellite

You can't feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame

You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays

You won't know your worth now, son, until you take a hit

And you won't find the beat until you lose yourself in it

 

[Chorus:]

That's why we won't back down

We won't run and hide

Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny

I'm passing over you like a satellite

So catch me if I fall

That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines

But at night we're conspiring by candlelight

We are the orphans of the American dream

So shine your light on me

 

You can't fill your cup until you empty all it has

You can't understand what lays ahead

If you don't understand the past

You'll never learn to fly now

'Til you're standing at the cliff

And you can't truly love until you've given up on it

 

[Chorus:]

That's why we won't back down

We won't run and hide

Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny

I'm passing over you like a satellite

So catch me if I fall

That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines

But at night we're conspiring by candlelight

We are the orphans of the American dream

So shine your light on me

 

She told me that she never could face the world again

So I offered up a plan

 

[2x]

We'll sneak out while they sleep

And sail off in the night.

We'll come clean and start over the rest of our lives.

When we're gone we'll stay gone.

Out of sight, out of mind.

It's not too late,

We have the rest of our lives.

 

The rest of our lives

 

[Chorus:]

Because we won't back down

We won't run and hide

Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny

I'm passing over you like a satellite

So catch me if I fall

That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines

But at night we're conspiring by candlelight

We are the orphans of the American dream

So shine your light on me (shine your light on me)

 

No, we won't back down

We won't run and hide

Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny (shine your light on me)

I'm passing over you like a satellite

'Cause these are the things that we can't deny now

This is a life that you can't deny us now

 

"Midnight Hands" 6

 

Like a new day rising

Like a calm before the storm

Like fog lifting from valleys

On a sleeping forest floor

Eyes open slowly as the dust is shaken off

To gaze upon the wreckage

That the midnight hands have wrought

 

And now I

I feel my temperature rising

My body explode

I feel like somebody's watching

Like I'm not alone

I stopped, I vowed right then and said that

 

Whatever path you take (the path you take)

Wherever you might go (where you may go)

Whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

We face a crossroad never knowing what's in store

There's an angel on my shoulder

There's a devil at my door

She proclaimed, "Tonight

Will be the greatest of our lives"

And I said, "Don't be so sure

Let's just wait until the morning light"

 

I feel my temperature rising

My body explode

I feel like somebody's watching

Like I'm not alone

I stopped, I vowed right then and said that

 

Whatever path you take (the path you take)

Wherever you might go (where you may go)

Whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

There in the clearing

We gathered close

Under the moon's pale light

We lay out the tools

"You don't have to do this

But I forgive you if you don't"

She just looked away

And said, "I know"

 

Gripped by the midnight hands

We cradle futures

They would prevent

Gripped by the midnight hands

 

The line's crossed over

The dawn grows closer

Let's bite off too much

Let's jump with a blind trust

In water over our heads

 

Whatever path you take

And wherever you might go

And whenever you decide to leave

I'll follow

I'll follow

 

I won't bet on the falls you take (the falls you take)

I won't let go if you started to stray

I'll be there until you don't wake up, yeah

I'll follow

I will follow

I will follow

 

Whatever path you take (I will follow)

Wherever you might go (I will follow)

Whenever you decide to leave (I will follow)
