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
You're hearts on 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
It's a god-damned thing
Not what's in the medicine
All I want to do is
I want to breath
Batteries are not included
What's the latest way that a man can die
Screaming hallelujah?
Singing out "The Dawn's Early Light"
The silent 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
The static age

    This is the 14th installment of the 21st Century breakdown story. It is in Christian's perspective.
    He's saying that technology has taken over, and he's choking on it. He's saying that, subliminally, its all promoting murder and sinning and corruption, disguised as false beauty, kindness, and bottled love.
