Lyrics

Fingers in

Listen what voices say

Fingers in

Listen what voices say

You always wrote for me, ego

Risk worth taking, risk worth leaving

Seems I'm still afraid of promise

To promise

Too big to stop

Too big to hold down

Trade up for the fast ride[2]

Trade your friends

Time passes us

Don't move

Be still

Be silent

Pulling your teeth, you push away

Cancel plans, cancel them all

Check your breath for cold and hold on

Please hold on

No pictures left to burn goodbye to

The smell of ash and white walls blank

Time passes us

Don't move

Be still

Be silent


Horizontal lines and button-up

Horizontal lines and button-up

Fingers in

Listen what voices say

The drawers of paper all say one thing

Like music boxes custom-made

Time passes us

Don't move

Be still

Be silent

Other Versions

The track listing for the first pressing is completely screwed up from how it should appear based on the studio album. The first pressing has album track “In The Same Room” appearing on the bonus 7″ intended for the bonus tracks, when it’s the 10th track on the studio that should appear as track 5 on the B-side of the record. The second pressing corrects this issue without the need for a bonus 7″ because the album was mastered properly, using the analog master, to stretch across to LP’s. So on the second pressing Static Prevails appears as intended, with the studio album appearing in order uninterrupted, with all the bonus tracks being tacked on to the end of the record on the C-side. the D-side of the second pressing blank and has no etching.[4]

  3. Tom Eats World, too! As if taking a note from fans and, ultimately, tour-mates Blink-182, JEW splits the workload straight down the middle between their two respective vocalists. “Rockstar”, “Seventeen”, “Episode IV”, “Caveman”, and “Robot Factory” are Linton’s, “Claire”, “Digits”, “World Is Static”, “In the Same Room”, and “Anderson Mesa” are Adkins’, and they more or less both shout-sing “Thinking, That’s All” and “Call It In the Air”.[1]
