    Lyrics

    Easy to poke yourself square in the eye
    Harder to like yourself, harder to try
    These Elvis poses, postcards and neopryn
    Roses a dollar a stem
    Everyone's sleeping or pulling a long haul,
    the keys in the cooler, it's 3 A.M.

    and Saturn is beckoning no one
    is off on its own
    is offering up

    Late shift convenience store
    Cut out the lights
    Telescope roof towards the
    northwestern sky
    You pull the ladder up
    no one's the wiser
    You find your sights and discover

    that Saturn is orbiting nothing
    is off on its own
    is breaking from home.

    Harder to look yourself square in the eye
    Easy to take off.

    You found the ladder in the pattern of your wrist
    You've seen and you've marked horizons
    Mother was difficult she made you cry
    Cover the mirror, look at the sky
    You climb into your rocketship triumph
    Lift up and hold out your hands.

    Saturn is orbiting nothing
    is off on its own
    is breaking from home.

    Saturn is orbiting nothing
    is off on its own
    is breaking from home.

    Saturn return when you chase down its moons
    Throw them into a new gravity.

    Harder to look yourself square in the eye
    Easy to poke yourself, easy as pie
    Easy to take off, harder to fly
    Harder to wake Galileo.
