Originally written as a love song, the chorus remained, whereas the lyrics deal with that always-inspiring Satellite. So it reads as an invasive “Big Brother” watchdog government coupled with the reminder that spring brings the rebirth. The lyrics don’t exactly mesh. |
In fact, Satellite plays upon a line from the childrens' song, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" -- "Like a diamond from the sky" is from the first refrain of the famous song, whereas, Dave uses "...In the sky" in Satellite.
