[Verse 1]
Easy to poke yourself square in the eye
Harder to like yourself, harder to try
These Elvis poses, postcards and neopryn
Roses a dollar a stem
Everyone’s sleeping or pulling a long haul,
The keys in the cooler, it's 3 a.m.

[Chorus 1]
And Saturn is orbiting nothing
Is off on it's own
Is offering up

[Verse 2]
Late shift convenience store
Turn out the lights
Telescope roof towards the
Northwestern sky
You pull the ladder u
No one's the wiser
You find your sights and discover

[Chorus 2]
That Saturn is orbiting nothing
Is off on it's own
Is breaking from home

[Bridge 1]
Harder to look yourself square in the eye
Easy to take off

[Verse 3]
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 climbed into your rocket-ship triumph
Lift up and hold out your hands

[Chorus 3]
Saturn is orbiting nothing
Is off on it's own
Is breaking from home

[Bridge 2]
Saturn return when you chase down it's moons
Throw them into a new gravity

[Bridge 3]
Harder to look yourself square in the eye
Easy to poke yourself, easy as pie
Easy to take off, harder to fly

[Outro]
Harder to wake Galileo
Harder to wake Galileo
Harder to wake Galileo
