Planet P Project – Saw A Sattelite lyrics

When I was a kid in 1957
I stood out with my father 'neath the california sky
He said 'look what they did', pointed to the heavens
'Wait just a moment, see the future go by'

He said 'there goes the last chance to hide -
Don't leave your lights on
Let every man stand and decide
Whose side he'll be on'

And I saw a satellite
Watched it fly by
Saw everything change tonight
From a hundred miles high

I went off to school, along with the others
To learn how to think the american way
They shot down the man, shot down his brother
And good doctor king he met jimmy earl ray

There go the last alibis
Gone on the breeze
Gone with the comfortable lies
We loved to believe

And I saw a satellite
I watched it fly by
Saw everything change tonight
From a hundred miles high

And the lights in the sky
To my ten-year-old eyes
Were like whispers, smoke, maybe dreams
Nikita pounded with his shoe
Saying 'we'll bury you'
And the whispers all rose into screams
And the ratings went over the moon
On the day Laika died
But my mother just stayed in her room
All morning and she cried

And I saw a satellite...
