Satellite Skin - No One's First, and You're Next
Lyrics:

if you break these moth wing feelings
powdery dust on your fingers
well no we're not praying, we're kneeling
hard enough just to say you believe them
well how the heck did you think you could beat them
at the same time that you're trying to be them
hard enough just to say you don't need it
when they serve it up, well you will still eat it
well satellite, satellite skin

just a knock just to say you don't visit
well everybody's willing to listen
oh satellite, satellite skin

you can say what you want, you're forgiven
well happy fucking congratulations
well everyone, everyone wins
just like being my own solar system
doing good things but then totally eclipse them
oh, what the use
oh, what the hell

well i've seen we had it 'cause
let me talk

if you break these moth wing feelings
butterfly knives in the ceiling
well everyone, everyone's waiting
detachments gets brazed then completed
(i have seen it all become satellite skin)
you could say what you want and not mean it
well no one really seems to be waiting
if you sweep up this mess i've created
(i have seen it all become satellite skin)
nothing's left to show i existed
oh satellite, satellite skin

asking for a question
was it easier said than was actually done
do you even believe that
do you even believe that there's a race to be won

if you break these moth wing feelings
i have seen it all become satellite skin
over innocent eyes
an act two, no, there's not
their opinions get stacked
in all those usual avoided spots
just to tell you i could not
have seen through to the gist of
those unhappy happy accidents
