"Satellite Mind" as written by and James Shaw Emily Haines....
Hold it I'm about to drop off
Let me tell you my last thought
Drift into a deep fog
Lost where I forgot to hold it
I can feel you most when I'm alone

Coming home cause I want to
Hang out with a starlet
Stare out at the ceiling
Preview of a screening
Flashback of a feeling
Sick sense of calling
I heard you fuck through the wall
I heard you fuck

When I'm bored
I send vibrations
In your direction
From the satellite mind

I'm not suicidal
I just can't get out of bed
I drift into a deep fog
Lost where I forgot to hold it
I can feel you when I'm alone
I can fell your ghost when I'm alone

Coming home cause I want to
Hang out with a starlet
Stare out at the ceiling
Preview of a screening
Flashback of a feeling
Sick sense of calling
I heard you fuck through the wall
I heard you fuck

When I'm bored
I send vibrations
In your direction
From the satellite mind

When your voice
Became vibrations
From the satellite mind

It sounded like mine

    General CommentHold it, I'm about to drop off
    Let me tell you my last thought
    Drift into a deep fog
    Lost where I forgot to hold it
    I can feel you most when I'm alone

    Coming home 'cause I want to
    Hang out with a starlet
    Stare up at the ceiling
    Preview of a screening
    Flashback of a feeling
    Sick sense of a calling
    I heard you fuck through the wall, I
    Heard you fuck

    When I'm bored
    I send vibrations
    In your direction
    From the satellite mind

    When I'm bored
    I send vibrations
    In your direction
    From the satellite mind

    I'm not suicidal
    I just can't get out of bed
    I drift into a deep fog
    Lost where I forgot to hold it
    I can feel you when I'm alone
    I can feel your ghost when I'm alone

    Coming home 'cause I want to
    Hang out with a starlet
    Stare up at the ceiling
    Hiding and revealing
    Flashback of a feeling
    Sick sense of a calling
    Heard you fuck through the wall, I
    Heard you fuck

    When I'm bored
    I send vibrations
    In your direction
    From the satellite mind

    When I'm bored
    I send vibrations
    In your direction
    From the satellite mind

    When your voice
    Became vibrations
    From the satellite mind
    From the satellite mind

    It sounded like mine, mine, mine
    It sounded like

    It sounded like mine, mine, mine
    It sounded like you-ooh, you-ooh (ooh-ooh)
    It sounded like mine, mine
    It sounded like (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

    General CommentI've got a couple corrections, I think.

    I'd split

    i heard you fuck when i'm bored

    into

    i heard you fuck
    when i'm bored

    She doesn't hear you fuck when she's bored, when she's bored, she sends vibrations.

    First chorus should read:

    i send vibrations, in your direction, from a satellite mind
    and if i'm bored
    i send vibrations, in your direction, from a satellite mind

    And the last two lines of the last chorus should be:

    in your voice
    came vibrations, from a satellite mind

    General CommentYou should all check out the lyric booklet.
    These lyrics are not correct. I'd suggest corrections verbatim, but I haven't got the booklet on me.

    General CommentI think this song is personally about cheating in a relationship.

    "coming home 'cause i want to
    hang out with the starlet
    stare up at the ceiling
    preview of a screening
    flashback of a feeling
    sick sense of a calling
    heard you fuck through the wall
    i heard you fuck
    when i'm bored"

    This verse to me, what I get from it is a girl is getting frustrated with her significant other and is acting differently around him. She's suspecting him of cheating whenever they aren't together or she can't attend something with him. Paranoia/Clingy-ness essentially.


    "i send vibrations, your direction, from a satellite mind
    when i'm bored
    i send vibrations, in your direction, from a satellite mind"

    The chorus is essentially explaining guilt(of the guy) in a metaphorical way. She's could be really angry with her boyfriend and really letting her mind unleash her anger on him and it's like she's the reason he feels guilty. She's hoping that the reasons why she's angry are present in his mind and that he does actually feel guilty for the stuff he's done. Once again metaphorically, from her perspective.


    "i'm not suicidal
    i just can't get out of bed
    i drift into a deep fog lost where i forgot to
    hold it
    i can feel you most when i'm alone
    i can feel your ghost when i'm alone"

    I think this part the girl in this relationship is just confused about what she thinks, "I drift into a deep fog lost where I forget to hold it" which I think she means she is forgetting what he did and how angry she is, she forgot to hold her anger. The next two lines she's contemplating forgiving him and telling herself that nothing happend because she still has feelings for him.

    "it sounded like mine"

    "when your voice
    became vibrations
    from the satellite mind"


    I think at this point in this little scenario, the guy is thinking about how clingy and paranoid the girl actually is and the girl(them two being in two different places) is realizing this and she starts feeling guilty just like he was and she is realizing that he is essentially doing the same thing back at her and it's the reason she feels guilty.


    It's actually 3:30 in the morning, my apologies if that doesn't make any sense.. I actually am really tired and I went to see Metric today(coincedentally) so. Off to bed.

    Song MeaningThe song is about her carnal desire for a guy, and she masterbates over him. My thought is he lives next door but he already has a wife or g/f and she hears them.

    "Sending vibrations in your direction through the satellite mind", when she's bored?
    Laying in bed staring at the ceiling? Feeling his ghost when she's alone?
    Preview of a screening, flashback of a feeling, sick sense of a calling...

    The rhythm of this song is fantastic. It is great to run to.

    My Opinioni for some reason have always heard that one line as "sick sense of recalling".... it would go with the flashback of a feeling, a flashback of when she heard whoever fuck through the wall, right?

    whatever. either way, i fucking love this song. it's fantastic... can't get over it.
