"Picking Up the Signal" as written by and Jay Farrar....
We've been through the thick
Straightaways after
Dragged for days on end
Turning away from faster

Downshifting low
Reaches a point you know

But I can't complain
'cause I know you're around

Keeping with
And then it faded to use
Set the stage to lip
Running from the countdown crew

Downshifting low
Reaches a point you know

Can't complain, no I can't
'cause I know that you're around

After all this confusion is put aside
After all, finally gonna make it right

I hear the beat
Of a thousand conga drums
Picking up the signal right here
Right here after all

After all this confusion is put aside
After all, finally gonna make it right

    General CommentLike so many songs from Jay Farrar, I can rarely figure out what the lyrics mean. I was hoping to see some replies and feedback on this one.
    I absolutely love Son Volt and the lyrics along with the music often convey a general feeling to me but like I said....Jay has a really different way of writing lyrics that for me are cryptic and a total mystery.
    Maybe the songs about drugs (speed) ?
