These lyrics have been going round and round in my head all damned day. Which is to say, I may as well post them. Apologies to him who holds the copyright. My intentions are good.

You know the way that things go
When what you fight for starts to fall.
And in that fuzzy picture
The writing stands out on the wall,
So clearly on the wall.

Send out the signals, deep and loud...

And in this place, can you reassure me,
With a touch, a smile, while the cradle's burning.
All the while, the world is turning to noise.
Oh, the more that it's surrounding us,
The more that it destroys.
Turn up the signal.
Wipe out the noise.

Send out the signals, deep and loud...

Man, I'm losing sound and sight
Of all those who can tell me wrong from right,
When all things beautiful and bright
Sink in the night.
Yet there's still something in my heart
That can find a way
To make a start.
To turn up the signal.
Wipe out the noise.

Wipe out the noise.
Wipe out the noise.
You know that's it.
You know that's it.
You know that's it.
You know that's it.

You know that's it.
You know that's it.

Receive and transmit.
Receive and transmit.
