Easy to poke yourself square in the eye Harder to like yourself, harder to try These are espouses Postcards and neoprene Roses a dollar a stem Everyone sleeping or pulling the long haul and Keys in the cooler it's three A.M. And Saturn is beckoning no-one It's offering up. Late shift convenience store, burn out the lights Telescope roof towards the north-western sky You pulled the ladder and no-ones the wiser You find your sights and discover Saturn is orbiting nothing He's off on its own, He's 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 to the sky You climb into your rocket ship trying Lift up and hold out your hands. Saturn is orbiting nothing He's off on its own He's breaking from home Saturn is orbiting nothing He's off on its own He's breaking from home Saturn returns when you chased down, it slows 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.
