Getting nothing but static, getting nothing but static Static in my attic from Channel Z Getting nothing but static, getting nothing but static Static filling my attic from Channel Z
I don't know, I feel like something's happening Something good is happening I feel love has got to come on, and I want it Something big and lovely I want the world to change for me Gotta get away, away from Z Living on the edge of Z
Space junk, laser bombs, ozone holes, better put up my umbrella!
Giant stacks blowin' smoke Politicrits pushin' dope All I know, we've got to change what's happening Something good could happen I feel light has got to come through, and I need it Something big and lovely I want the world to change for me, gotta get away, away from Z Living on the edge of Z
Waste dumps, toxic fog, irradiate and keep it fresh forever Good old boys tellin' lies 'Bout time I got wise
Getting nothing but static (static) Getting nothing but static (static) Static in my attic from Channel Z Getting nothing but static (static) Getting nothing but static (static) Static in my attic from Channel Z
Gotta tune in, pico waves, gotta tune out, PCBs Gotta tune in, market crash, gotta tune out, polar shift Gotta tune in, narrow minds, gotta tune out, space junk Gotta tune in, bombs, gotta turn out, atomic lasers falling from the sky Where's my umbrella?
Gonna shoot that static down the drain (where's my umbrella?) Gonna put that static out of my brain (where's my umbrella?) Gonna put up my antennae (free, ow!)
Hamburger ads Pop up in my head On the edge of Aquarius (secret wars!) I'm living on the edge (take my money away)
I know I feel a change is happening Something good will happen I feel love is coming on strong, and I want it We can make it happen
I want the world to change for me Gotta get away, away from Z Living on the edge of Z
Channel Z's all static, all day, forever (whoa-oh) Time to open your windows, let in better weather (whoa-oh) Channel Z's all static, all day, forever Time to take this information and shove it in the shredder
More trash, more dips, space junk, narrow minds, aah! (whoa-oh)

52fan from NetherworldChange Z to Xi and it makes sense today in 2022.
Chris from Cape Coral, Flas good as this song is it was wrong to put it out as the first single from Cosmic Thing if i was in charge of Warner bros. I'd say "Let's put Love Shack out first it's got hit all over it."
Dane from Lima,ohio, Fl"Static in my attic from Channel Z."This is even more true today.Too much info.One of the better songs on Cosmic Thing.Their best album I think.I saw them live in July '90(yeah 20 years ago)One of the top 3 concerts I've been to.
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
