Intro: Main Riff (Don't forget that it repeats itself!)

Verse 1:

Main Riff
Babies on beach blankets headed for Mars
1/2 Main Riff                             C9
Cute boys with crew cuts and day-glo surfboards
           Main Riff                               (clear)
There's a    pretty lady in a bikini, her eyes are bright, 
(Still on Main Riff)    C9
But her teeth look like    smashed out window panes
           G  (mend)
Trying to      fix   her dreams 
     Main Riff (seaweed)
With sushi and  facials  and carrot juice

Chorus:

           C9                       G     
There's a white wall that we can't    see over now
 C9
    But that's okay we're still learning
    G                                  F6             D
Mistakes, they are allowed if you're a satellite, o-o-oh...

Verse 2: Same as 1st verse

Yoga classes so you can look good in your singles bar
California's sure lovely, it's the home of the stars
And everybody is a nice body
But souls are like shadows, hollow inside, choked and hiding behind
Volleyballs and valium and powerbars

Repeat Chorus: Same as first time

There's a white wall that we can't see over now
But that's okay we're still learning
Mistakes, they are allowed, if you're a satellite, oh...

Bridge:
  Dm add4        Gadd9
We understand a   lot  of things
     Dm add4                Gadd9
About modern technology but  not  about dreams
    Dm add4                       Gadd9 (single strum)  
Our hearts are on the shelves, we can't fix ourselves,
                  1/2 Main Riff
But we can fix  a satellite
Main Riff
Cause in hollywood the heros are strung out on grace
                                     C9
And half-skinned gypsies are crying leave this place

Chorus: Same as usual for 1st part

There's a white wall that we can't see over now
But that's okay we're still learning
Mistakes, they are allowed, if you're a satellite, o-o-oh...
              F6            D
We can fix a satellite, o-o-oh...

End:

1/2 Main Riff                        D
Babies on beach blankets headed for Mars

(You can insert this part before the end line if you want for fun, 
 but it's just on GBAIW)

             C9         G       C9     D

         (D)
	Cause I'm gonna give you
	  C9          G          C9          
	Satellite, satellite, satellite, 
          D
	satellite, satellite, satellite, 
          C9          G          C9         D
	satellite, satellite, satellite, satellite tonight
	 C9    G   C9   D

         C9    G   C9   D
	Fix my broken heart
