"Accuracy" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Michael Stephen Dempsey....
We sit in the same room
Side by side
I give you the wrong lines
Feed you
Accuracy
Accuracy
Look into my eyes
We both smile
I could kill you
Without trying
That's accuracy
Accuracy
Accuracy
Accuracy
Accuracy
Practice all day for accuracy
Mirror mirror on the wall

    General CommentRobert said Accuracy was, "The most perfect of songs, few words, little music." I agree. Love their old stuff!

    My OpinionRobert actually says this is about: 'The ease and desire of hurting (not seducing) someone you sometimes love'. If he also said it was the most perfect, I could believe that.
    His explanation is succinct enough and I think needs little backing. The lyrics reflect the comfort and ease of hurting a loved one, with them being completely unknowing. It's a sense of having power over them, 'I could kill you without trying', knowing you could manipulate them and play with them and hurt them very deeply - choosing not to most of the time, but occasionally succumbing to the desire just slightly. Because you can. To prove you can. maybe. That's accuracy.
