Lyrically Speaking; Signal To Noise

In the second installment of what I hope to be a regular feature for Document. I’ve asked Jerry Lardieri to provide the lyrics for what has long been my favorite Brixton Riot song. “Signal to Noise” has been a rallying cry as well as a call to seize the day for quite some time now. Having sang, spun and hummed this song for so long now. I felt it was time I knew the lyrics word for word. In the four plus years of United By Rocket Science. Both Jerry and The Brixton Riot provided a steady flow of memorable moments. One can only hope for more as we move forward. Only time will tell. J.D.

Signal to Noise – The Brixton Riot

Dim the lights
And wind the cables
Cut the power on the stereo
There is no time
This session’s over
Signal to noise ratio

You’ve been acquired
Incorporated
They’ll grease the wheels til they just won’t roll
Then you’re retired
From circulation
Signal to noise ratio

Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound

Pop filter sheen
On every station
Flickering static on the stereo
A hollow sound
Across the nation
Signal to noise ratio

Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound
Keep my head down til I hear that sound

The Brixton Riot
