Lyrics


Three buttons and a volume knob
Perched on the shelf in the kitchen
Why is he such a slob
Late from work again so she listens

In a million homes
Wired up like a one way phone
A little temple of static
Made out of plastic
The Mayak 204 box
The Mayak 204

Those kids don't call him anymore
Unless to ask for a favor
Why is he such a bore
He operates on a different wavelength

In a million homes
Nobody is ever alone
A little temple of static
Made out of plastic
The Mayak 204 box
The Mayak 204 

Pop music on the radio 
Made for kids that don't really listen
Canned laughter on the tv shows
Nothing's sacred, something is missing

In a million homes babushkas from the days of old
Still sneak through her back door
Still cling to the cold war on her
Mayak 204 box
The Mayak 204 

A temple of static
Made out of plastic
The Mayak 204 box
The Mayak 204
