"Action" as written by Thomas Delonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis L. Barker....
Ahh... Go!
The sky is falling it's a curious condition
It ain't a fallacy, it ain't superstition
You live your life like you're some kind of actor
But this scenario you cannot manufacture

We're gonna need some action
We're gonna need some action soon
Trapped in a world of ordinary madness
It's all the same, there's nothing new

Com'on, com'on
Com'on, com'on
Com'on, com'on

Where'd you learn how to be so complacent?
They beat you down and you might as well face it
Your heroes lied, yeah they're all just a fake
Don't know how much more of this I can take

We're gonna need some action
We're gonna need some action soon
Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,
It's all the same, there's nothing new

We're gonna need some action (We're gonna need some action)
We're gonna need some action soon
Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,
It's all the same, there's nothing... New!

Ahh... Go!

We're gonna need some action (We're gonna need some action)
We're gonna need some action soon
Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,
It's all the same, there's nothing new

We're gonna need some action (We're gonna need some action)
We're gonna need some action soon
Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,
It's all the same, there's nothing new

Com'on, com'on
Com'on, com'on
Com'on, com'on
Com'on, com'on
Action! Action! Action! Action!

    General CommentWhat a great song. Easily one of my favorites by PM5k. Sounds to me like they're talking about people here in the US not doing very much to help (ourselves) or others around the world. (You know, the important matters such as famine and poverty.)

    General Comment@JJ_20: In no way does being on a Nascar CD mark a highpoint for a band, rather it is the lowest of the low. Nascar fans are disgusting inbred rednecks, and them listening to good music never fares well.

    General CommentI think that this is a song that anyone can read anything into it. I'm feeling kind of anti-religion right now, so that is what the song is.

    "It’s all the same, there’s nothing new " All religions are just reruns of the same old tired ideas.

    "Trapped in a world of ordinary madness, " Everyone expects you to belive in/respect god, when the idea of god is a ridiculous one at best (a spook in the attic watching your every move - the FBI, perhaps?)

    "Your heroes lied, yeah they’re all just a fake " See above for god discussion. Priests/organized religions are just bunch of fakes.

    "They beat you down and you might as well face it " People use and abuse religious teachings for their own ends - the Christian right justifying war on other countries (Can you tell I'm a democrat :) ) with religious teachings. People use religion to subvert others, not empower them.

    "You live your life like you’re some kind of actor " Religious people live like they have something to prove, and something to achieve to ensure their place in heaven. They are actors, and god(s) is(are) the audience.

    "It ain’t a fallacy, it ain’t superstition " This is self explanatory.

    "We’re gonna need some action soon" Read what you want into this.
