lyrics

Satellites

Seven sisters gather in a dark red sky,
Icy queens in their celestial home,
Orion in pursuit,
Sprawled across the night,
Under this ancient starry dome.

Satellites shine bright overhead,
Nameless intruders of the night,
Everything’s in motion, turning on a pin,
Each shining traveller in silent flight.

Like a velvet highway,
Under the veil of night,
Each shining traveller,
Beguiling traveller,
Under this ancient starry dome.

Satellites moving over our heads,
Satellites carry the news of the world,
Satellites for lovers to talk on the phone,
Satellites to find our way home,
Satellites to measure the rising sea,
Satellites to guide killer drones,
Satellites tracking birds on the wing,
Satellites watching every moving thing.

Like a velvet highway,
Under the veil of night,
Each shining traveller,
Beguiling traveller,
Under this ancient starry dome.
