"Satellite" as written by and Brian Wayne Transeau....
See here, we have a beautiful view of the earth down below as the satellite departs

She smells of the sun
And she's constantly saying
That's it's alright because lies sound so nice
And like soil to seed goes, casting my fears aside

She says, "The satellite is coming"
I pray the wrecking ball is waning
She says, "The satellite is coming.
It's come to take us home."

Satellite

Still smells of the sun
And the light that brings healing is burning my eyes
And the dark seems so nice
And I'm choking on blessings that I can receive
I hide

She says, "The satellite is coming"
I pray the wrecking ball is waning
She says, "The satellite is coming.
It's come to take us home."

This series of bearings that will us in proximity with the satellite.
It's been a good trip, Houston.

    General CommentI now believe that this song is reflective of the abuse Brian experienced while growing up. The lines:

    She smells of the sun
    and she's constantly saying that's it's all right, because lies sound so nice.
    And like soil to seed goes, casting my fears aside...

    indicate his mother saying that everything will be alright. He wants to trust her so much, and he believes in her words. So when he moves on to the next part:

    She says, "The satellite is coming".
    I pray the wrecking ball is waining
    She says, "The satellite is coming. It's come to take us home."

    the "satellite" is his father. A satellite could be something that watches over us, or that is far away yet still influental. The "wrecking ball" is the abuse that comes with the arrival of his father, so Brian is praying that for once, the abuse will subside. His father is distant except in his abuse.

    The verse:

    Still smells of the sun
    and the light that brings healing is burning my eyes
    and the dark seems so nice
    and I'm choking on blessings that I can receive
    I hide.

    indicate that he is so used to hiding from his father that when his mother draws him out of hiding, it almost is difficult for him to do so.

    General CommentI had the the most amazing opportunity to meet BT when he was passing out his tape after a rave in southern CA back in 1996.... he was so down to earth and amazing... but I digress...

    I believe he is also from a fairly wealthy family, and a well connected family on the east coast of old family bloodlines.... I think he knows thing that we do not, meaning the "working class" .... BUT

    I think Brian has intense love for us, the human race, just listen to his music...

    The song "Satellite" is about the Planet X that is racing towards our planet to destroy us, and Brian is warning us about it.

    The song is so surreal sounding, it crawls inside your subconscious... listen with your 3rd eye, you will feel and might see what Brian is trying to tell you with his amazing compassion and ability to communicate through music, sound, rhythm, whatever you wanna call it.... much love, I PRAY THE WRECKING BALL IS WANING

    General CommentSo this is probably wrong, but here s my interpretation

    This song is about weed.

    Plants grow in the sun, weed smells.
    Getting high makes you feel better, but doesn't fix anything. - lies
    soil to seed- plant references
    casting my fears aside- medicating your ills
    satellite is coming - pass to the left
    wrecking ball is waning - feeling better
    come to take us home - you're baked

    the light that brings healing , is burning my eyes - smoke from the burning
    dark seems so nice ~ enjoying your surroundings
    choking on blessings ~ coughing on smoke

    etc etc

    I wish I had a better interpretation , but that is the one I have.
