Signal To Noise Lyrics

Artist: Peter Gabriel
Album: Up

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 signal 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
receive and transmit
receive and transmit
receive and transmit
you know that's it
you know that's it
receive and transmit
you know that's it
you know that's it
receive and transmit

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan also accompanies peter Gabriel sometimes.
He uses foreign lyrics...What are they?

The music of my childhood...

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is just providing a musical beat. What he says doesnt actually mean anything, but you can interpret it as the various echelons of emotion. Just the way he sings adds that powerful unexplained meaning to the song, think of it as the 'signal being sent out despite all the noise around it which is trying to suffocate and drown out the signal'.
