The Static Age

Album: 21st Century Breakdown (2009)
  • Can you hear the sound of the static noise?
    Blasting out in stereo
    Cater to the class and the paranoid
    Music to my nervous system
    Advertising love and religion
    Murder on the airwaves
    Slogans on the brink of corruption
    Vision of blasphemy, war and peace
    Screaming at you

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    Billboard on the rise in the dawn's landscape
    Working your insanity
    Tragic a'la madness and concrete
    Coca-Cola execution
    Conscience on a cross and
    Your hearts in a vice
    Squeezing out your state of mind
    Are what you own that you cannot buy
    What a fucking tragedy, strategy
    Screaming at you.

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    Hey hey, it's the static age
    This is how the west was won
    Hey hey, it's the static age millennium

    All I want to know
    Is a god-damned thing
    Not what's in the medicine
    All I want to do is
    I want to breathe
    Batteries are not included
    What's the latest way that a man can die
    Screaming hallelujah?
    Singing out "the dawn's early light"
    The silence of the rotten, forgotten
    Screaming at you.

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age

    I can't see a thing in the video
    I can't hear a sound on the radio
    In stereo in the static age
