The Signal And The Noise – Lyrics

Well, a crack at them anyway…words I am not sure on have question marks beside them…

(PS: Any guesses as to what I’ll be doing later?)

Take off those headphones and let this world pour into you
Throw off those glasses and then you’ll start seeing
Forget those battles those ones that mean nothing to you
Move? you’re alive and just smile you’ll start hearing

Somewhere out beneath the heavens and the atmosphere
Somewhere out among the silence there’s a voice
There’s a feeling that takes over and it has no fear
When you’re caught between the signal and the noise

Shout out the names (of) everyone that feels most dear to you
Praise? to the road and the sun and you’ll start feeling
Shut out those ghosts? with their talk is far too negative
Make love your armour and smile and you’ll start hearing

Somewhere out beneath the heavens and the atmosphere
Somewhere out among the silence there’s a voice
There’s a feeling it takes over and it has no fear
When you’re caught between the signal and the noise
And the noise
And the noise

And the noise

Somewhere out beneath the heavens and the atmosphere
Somewhere out among the silence there’s a voice
There’s a feeling it takes over and it has no fear
When you’re caught between the signal and the noise
You’re just caught between the signal and the noise

The Signal And The Noise…AND THE DRAMA

This is how listening to The Signal And The Noise for the first time has left me feeling…

Just….the drama of it! Full of atmosphere, dark…a real “hark back” in sound for me. Some don’t hear it…but I do! Worried about it lyrically initially. It was the music that grabbed me this time…I need to hear it a few more times for the lyrics to sink in and get the full feeling of them. They were harder to detect on this…Jim is singing at a deeper register on this than on Magic. Deeper and softer, in a way…so it was harder to pick things up. But hell…it sounded FLIPPING AWESOME!

I REALLY HOPE it’ll be on the “listen again” recording of the show on iPlayer Radio…I’ll be an inpatient, tempestuous child for a whole week if not!

I WANT MORE!

Hopefully the link to Steve Lamacq’s show will have it on playback…

But for now…in my ears there is just the fading remnants of THE SIGNAL AND THE NOISE….
