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!
