lyrics

Question everything that you see
Blurry on your own history
Never trust someone who knows the truth
They’re probably hiding something from you

Speak up louder than the last guy
That really helps prove that you are right
Now I can’t help but fall into your arms
So articulate smart and strong

I know the static wins
You can talk this life to death
But static wins
I know you’re screaming
Your point has been made
But static wins

My respect is earned by honesty
Honestly it doesn’t matter to me
We’re in a big game of the price is right
Come on down and be our winner tonight

Clarity can set the mind at ease
Or is that just ignorance blessing me?
Maybe someone’s watching out for you
And the signal's just not coming through

I know the static wins
You can talk this life to death
But the static wins
I know you're screaming
Your point has been made
But the static wins

I know the static wins
Little melodies start creeping in
Just as I start singing
The static starts questioning

I know the static wins
Little melodies start creeping in
Just as I start singing
The static starts questioning

The tunes suggest blurry, triumphant anthems; the words invoke solaced, woodsy reflections. ... more
