"Static" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Can you feel it in the airwaves
Rollin down the lane
Black out in the background
Standin' in your veins

Mmmmm
Nothin' that I wouldn't say to you
Can you teach it to the prisoners
Can you throw it at the wall

You leap into the altitudes
See just where you fall
Mmmmm
Nothin' that I wouldn't take from you

Can you fit it in the system
Can you put it in a word
Static and distortion
Is all you ever heard

Mmmmm
Nothin' that I wouldn't say to you

    General CommentThese lyrics are likely incorrect.

    "Static" (Diamond Bollocks included) is one of my favorite tracks on Mutations. It has just the progressive bitterness to end the album perfectly.

    General CommentIt's so easy to laugh at yourself
    When all those jokes have already been written
    Seems like another vain attempt
    To let yourself fall out of the oven

    Holy mountains, they look so tired
    And it's a perfect day to lock yourself inside

    Who you foolin' if the fools are right
    It's the same thing but it's almost as different
    Hard to tell when it pacifies your mind
    Leaves you stranded with a broken engine

    Lazy desert looks so mangled
    Let me drown in a convalescent bliss

    Get up from your bed of rest
    Been a long time since you've lived
    And the static in your mind
    Leaves you hollow and unkind
    With a shock electric wave
    Turns you on

    You've been flunked out of the devil's house
    Delinquent hygienes are so abrasive
    Some distortion that's never been known
    On the treadmill you'll be running forever

    Holy mountains, they look so tired
    And it's a perfect day to lock yourself inside
