"World Is Static" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
The longest time away.
Think last time the friends we made.
The longest time away.
Best friend is too cheap to stay.

Of course I'll go with you, not every day I get to.
Of course I'll stay with you, how often.
Pictures tell so much.
They remind me often.

Your voice brings back so much... situations.
Between the money and your every move, acceptance.
Between the money and your every move.
We both know things never change.
We both know static prevails.

Take a seat at your request.
Five years I'm still there.
The longest time away, my friend.

    General CommentIts about two friend that move apart physically(maybe one friend moves away). The keep in contact. But slowly they drift aprt because theyre living different lives. Thats the static. They tried to keep close but they just cant.

    General CommentStatic means to stay the same. So he's just saying that nothing's ever going to change the fact that they're friends. No matter how far apart, no matter how long they're apart, and regardless of any other situation they find themselves in, he's still gonna be there. That doesn't change. It's static.

    General CommentI don't know if it's a good song. I've never heard it, but the lyrics are decent. I'm not a big JEW fan, but they're cool.

    General Commentit's a good song. The lyrics are sung overlaping each other. They do that in a lot of their songs. Makes it sound really nice.

    General Commentas aymier says, they have overlapping parts, but this is one of few songs that ANYONE does that have 3 separate parts...it's what makes the song so strong.
    static (staying the same) prevails, in a literal sense, could be applied to the world in general...things don't change easily or quickly. it's a hard song to explain, but basically i think it means that no matter where life takes you and no matter what happens, there will always be constants if you look for them, i.e. pictures, memories, old friends.
