"You Satellite" as written by and Kotche Glenn Cline Nels Courtney....
Somehow
A satellite
A candle light
It's so red

A violet halo, a satellite
Could trees [?] change any failure
When all alone

Some want to change it, but I won't
Sometimes, I don't hate it lately
What I don't know I'm gonna bleed it away
For reunite this time of night
I'll catch it all late at night
Time of night, oh, high, high
I'm more moved by the [?]
But you can't sing what you can't give away

You come all this way and hold your hands
I'm became a cow at the wells waiting
I, I won't live anyone that you can't give it away
I, I won't miss anyone I've given away
I don't wanna go and I don't wanna stay
You satellite
You satellite
You satellite

    My InterpretationThis song is about something that follows you around. Tweedy, the song writer, indicates mixed feelings about this thing in lines like "Some want to change it, but I won't
    Sometimes, I don't hate it lately" and "I don't wanna go and I don't wanna stay". I wonder if this song is possibly about Tweedy's struggle with his own perspective on fame and stardom.

    General CommentPersonally, I think this is one of Wilco's most powerful songs, which is saying a lot. It's conflicted and intense without overdoing it. It's right up there with Misunderstood and Ashes of American Flags in my book. Has a different feel than just about any other Wilco song also.
