Rise Against – Satellite lyrics

[Verse 1]
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!

[Verse 2]
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!

[Hook]
She told me that she never, would face the world again,
So I offered up my plan;
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.

[Bridge]
We'll sneak out while they sleep, and sail off in the night.
(We have the rest of our lives)
We'll come clean and start over the rest of our lives
(We have 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!

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!

[Outro]
No, 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,
'Cause these are the things that we can't deny now,
This is a life that you can't deny us now!

    To me, this is a song about the current political situation. The politicians are getting more corrupt, and we have 2 parties that won't budge or move to help the other one get what it wants, money. Because of the system, we are poor and left destitute, but people are going to rise up against the establishment. When he says shine you light on me, it's the government showing who isn't going along with their scheme. Both sides are wrong because neither is for the people, and that is what they are trying to say.

    Think its about addiction of what was laid in front of us that only a portion of a % actually achieved the american dream(freedom), or was handed it to them. The rest of us who never conformed to the american way are running out of time quick and we need to change it cause there wont be nothing from the past worth passing on? Too many rules. At least we have music be loud.
