"Smoke and Mirrors" as written by Rob Harris, Matt Johnson and Jay Kay....
Comatose, feed my head with liberty
I've got an appetite for deceit
I'm done, well done, stick a fork in me
Cover me in apathy, discreetly and distinctable
I am trying to break your heart,
I'm plagued with doubt, no frogs or murdered first born
My thoughts are just a little sun burnt, dismantle all that ever was,
Strip it down; withdraw the blood

Something's going to break real soon, who's covering those eyes?
Safety in knowing others lies pulled by the strings of time

Hold me back; I'm going to throw it all down on the table
Do you expect us to believe in these fables?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?
Hold me tight, it seems all I really have is in front of me
Is the rest just a dream or a fallacy?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?

A throw back to all those 80's slasher flicks
You're a cheap killer, and I'm getting sick of it
God's dead, and all bets have waived their rights
All is fair in love and time, who will win the game of war?
Illusion, delusion, a terrible secret,
What one does see is another's lost prophet
Hold me close, I can see right through you
Challenge all you've ever heard, incite the search and motivate

Something's going to break real soon, who's covering those eyes?
Safety in knowing others lies pulled by the strings of time

Hold me back; I'm going to throw it all down on the table
Do you expect us to believe in these fables?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?
Hold me tight, it seems all I really have is in front of me
Is the rest just a dream or a fallacy?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?

Please read between the lines
A simple compromise between the sands of time
Please say with me, say with me

Hold me back; I'm going to throw it all down on the table
Do you expect us to believe in these fables?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?
Hold me tight, it seems all I really have is in front of me
Is the rest just a dream or a fallacy?
Oh, what to do with you?
With you, with you, with you?

    General CommentWhat a great opening song to an album. The album isn't great yet, it hasn't grown on me, and it might not. But the build up in the beginning and then the melody is just catchy as are the keyboards and 80s sound. As the song mentions.

    General Commentyeah, this is my fave song on the album... I see a lot of potential with Action Action... I have a feeling they haven't put out their best work yet.
