So, You Go
So, You Go
"So, You Go" from “Life on Spec” is sung by two travelers and societal outcasts. He sails the rivers and oceans with his small makeshift family, uninterested in putting roots down in any soil as they are deemed unfit by locals who refer to them as "pirates". His tough exterior is nearly impenetrable as he has been through hell and made it out the other side on more than one occasion. Impenetrable, that is, until he meets a beautiful and mysterious woman who, like him, is unable to settle.
As his guard slowly weakens, they begin talking about their experiences being blown from place to place for so many years. He discovers the woman with whom he's slowly fallen in love longs more than anything to put her roots down and build a life void of uncertainty and travel. He is entirely perplexed at the very thought and, after the woman deals with some harsh pushback from the community she so desperately wants to be a part of, he questions her as to why she wants so badly to put down roots in a place that's actively trying to dig her out.
