about

static icon London, UK

Static Icon's 3rd album "metropolis mindfuck" is a sonic odyssey spanning twenty years. It presents our modern end of innocence with all its brutality, beauty and truth against a backdrop of industrial club beats and sweeping strings. The most personal album by far, each track is a snapshot of life migrating between the cities of a Europe in decline. The city as human evolution and man made hell. ... more

Track Name: i feel it
I found someone to share with me
The pain of life and ecstasy
I knew in time this would come true
I'm so glad I found you
For I live for love
Just like you

I feel it
Day to day to day

I found someone who'll care for me
Fulfil my heart fulfil my needs
I knew in time this would come true
I'm so glad I found you
For I live for love
Just like you

I feel it
Day to day to day

Will you hold your love in me
Or will you stray in time and
Make be bleed

I feel it
Day to day to day
Track Name: drug of love
Watch 'em dance
All night
With the pretty boys
With the pretty boys
There's a chance tonight
Come on shake it boy
Come on shake it boy

Take the drug
The drug of love
Take the drug
The drug of love

Watch 'em dance
All night
With the sleazy boys
With the sleazy boys
There's a chance tonight
You will jump with joy
You will jump with joy

Take the drug
The drug of love
Take the drug
The drug of love
Track Name: talking 'bout money
There's a sense that comes over me
It's a sense of insecurity
Social welfare
Fucking nightmare
To tell the truth I don't wanna lie
But does the truth ever get you by?
I don't think so
Oh no no no

Religion brings us holy wars
The government sells us their last cause
The human race will never win
Cos we're all after the same thing
Track Name: say you will
Come say you will
Don't say you won't
Come say you will

The city keeps moving
As time ticks by
This life is still yearning
A physical high
Feeling like some animal
On coke
Trapped in a cage

I'm feeling horny
So fucking horny
I feel so strange
Feeling like some animal
On coke
Trapped in a cage

Come say you will
Don't say you won't

Don't say you won't
Track Name: paranoia
I walk these London streets
And they give me grief
I get stalked in London streets
Someone is following me
Can't help this feeling
Coming over me
I can't help believing
Someone is out to get me

I need protection
To give me peace
Don't want subjection
To some common thief

Paranoia
Track Name: loser
She won't give up until she's dead
She's got a kid I tell ya
She's a dickhead

She's a user
Big time loser

She fills her arm with liquid pain
She walks the streets at night time
She's just insane

Just imagine her fathers fears
Just imagine her mothers tears

Just imagine
Track Name: punch funk baby
Strange weather
Worn leather
Taking me by surprise
And blinding me through disguise

Black rubber
Fierce lover
Cruising me with mean eyes
But you'll get nothing

Don't touch me
Don't feel me
Just leave me

Punch Funk Baby
Track Name: passion
Passion passion baby

I miss your kiss
Let's get it on
Your blissful kiss
Let's get it on
Let's taste your lips
Let's get it on
That I'm missing

Let me take you baby
To the high life baby
Make your stars fly bay
I'm your man hey

Passion passion baby
Track Name: a little queer
Keep me high
Keep me near
Show your love
Make it clear
Shed your clothes
Shed a tear
Leave my taste
A little queer

That's why I want you
I want you I want you
That's why I need you
I need you I need you
Track Name: tramp
Strip down to your underwear
Don't act like you really care
Why can't you see
You little tramp

Day to day lay to lay
Hey hey day to day
Day to day lay to lay
Hey hey day to day
Track Name: field of temptation
So give me the reason
Give me the time
Got a field of temptation
Taking me higher now
Track Name: i never wanted anything
I never wanted
I never wanted
I never wanted

You know that I
Never wanted
Anything

You know that I
Never wanted
Anything

Well here I stand alone again
I can't believe
I'm here again

So here's the plan
I'm gonna land
Myself a life
Right here again

You know that I
Never wanted
I never wanted anything
