"Action and Action" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
You really think you're bigger than this
To the tune of ten thousand lisps
Who would have thought we'd represent
When I can't take a compliment?

Overexposure is the key and any focus on me is appreciated
As it should be
No wonder now
I finally found the right formula for

You taught me how
I play the fool
Every mistake that I make
I couldn't have made without you

What's said is done and plain to see
You take it all too seriously
Here's all you get from me
What better way to make an honest mistake

Than a televised hand of fate
When the world's closing in on you
A decision would be overdue
Now nothing left is out of hand

A stronger jaded man stands
If the world is ending then we toast to it
I'm stronger now but not without the right formula for
I'm down for whatever
What's there left to wait for?

    General CommentThis song kicks ass, and the video is like perfect. I love how he's like screaming into the phone, it's just hardcore. It's great how he just says it all to her like that. Damn.

    General CommentYou taught me how, to play the fool
    Every mistake that I make,
    I couldn't have made without you.
    PERFECT... this is my fave GUK song, I love them, they are amazing.. but the new stuff.. everyone hates it but I think it's cool, just cause it doesn't sound like their other stuff doesn't mean it's not good. One of the best things about GUK is how they can pull off anything~ and their new style works just fine for them.

    General Commentgreat fucking song..get up kids rock

    Well in my oppinion i think it's about a boyfriend who doenst want to take it anymore and decides taht he rather "be a strong and jaded man" than keeping a relationship that isnt going anywhere..

    maybe it's just me
