Versions

Satellite

This is the original album version. Opening into the first verse, quiet, low-register vocals layer behind a danceable beat loop surrounded by atmospheric synthesizers. Echoing distorted guitars break up parts of the multiple verses, then cover the background of the track during the chorus, which is mostly built on the differing lyrics and vocal layering. The coda of the track augments these elements with jangling guitar reminiscent of The Fragile and, prominently, a bassline backed by 'swarm' guitar layering that changes the mood of the track into something more mysterious and sinister. As layers build, the song gives out to several of the ambient layers and vocals only, fading out all the way.

Satellite (Hot Chip Remix)

Live

This song debuted live on the first night of the Tension 2013 Tour. It featured backing vocals by Lisa Fischer and Sharlotte Gibson.

Lyrics

   Data trails
   Like fingernails
   Scratch across the sky
   Hard to know
   Figure out
   Tell the truth from lies
   Everywhere
   Listening
   Every word you say
   Think I found
   A way around
   Yeah I think I found a way
   Well, come on
   
   Satellite
   I'm watching you
   I'm one step ahead
   Satellite
   I'm part of you
   I'm inside your head
   
   Yes we can
   Yes we did
   Eliminate the spread
   Better watch
   What you think
   What was that you said?
   Everywhere
   Everything
   Every word you say
   Think I found
   A way around
   Yeah I think I found
   A way
   
   I know you're up there somewhere
   So very high
