"Into Action" as written by Skye Sweetnam and Tim Armstrong....
Let's get moving into action
Let's get moving into action
If your life's too slow, no satisfaction
Find something out there, there's an attraction
If you hesitate now, that's a subtraction
So, let's get moving girl into action

We take the 43 bus, we got no plans
The girl in the miniskirt, her name's Suzanne, right
The one with in high heeled boots is Sharon
And Karen is the one with the blond wig on
And with the bullet, man, we're going number one
And we don't need any money to have any fun

Let's get moving into action
Let's get moving into action
If your life's too slow, no satisfaction
Find something out there, there's an attraction
If you hesitate now, that's a subtraction
So, let's get moving girl into action

We take the trans-bay tube on the Richmond line
Leave at seven and at east bay by nine
We may run out of money tonight never out of time
Harmon street we kick, it going to Adeline
It's anybody's guess how late were gonna run
We go all night alright to midnight just begun

Let's get moving into action
Let's get moving into action
If your life's too slow, no satisfaction
Find something out there, there's an attraction
If you hesitate now, that's a subtraction
So, let's get moving girl into action

Girl that showed up on the scene, we tried to warn them
That your days were over and the ship was sunken
Respect to New York, respect to London
But we're from California and our stance is stronger

We're gonna dig dig dig in deep hold the sacred ground
When the music come playing then you jump up, jump down
If you hook up the speakers, man, we'll bring the sound
And the music will be heard from miles and miles around
We got songs of redemption, songs of war
We got songs like this that can pack the dance floor

Let's get moving into action
Let's get moving into action
If your life's too slow, no satisfaction
Find something out there, there's an attraction
If you hesitate now, that's a subtraction
So, let's get moving girl into action

    General CommentIt's alright, I could do without the girl part. Who is that? Hopefully a no-namer. Definate shades of two-tone ska which you just don't see enough of anymore.

    General CommentThe song is undeniably catchy..

    And I believe Tim wrote songs for that Skye Sweetnam for her album. I read somewhere this song was originally for Skye, and later rewrote it and used it for himself.

    and I remember hearing the name Skye Sweetnam somewhere...

    doesn't matter really, the song is among my favorites on Tim's new album.

    General CommentGreat song. I've never heard of Sky before so I don't care if she's an ongoing teen girl idol or something.
    This one's my favorite song on the album, together with Translator, Wake Up, Hold On, Take This City, Oh No, Among The Dead, Inner City Violence and Lady Demeter;)
