Behind the wheel.. some told
Their turn.. realizing what's in store
Hardly known... under the lift
Seems like forever.. since i seen one like this!
Seldom wrong.. narrow ride
Turning towards.. ain't ever seen inside
One on the floor... one out the door
ain't nothing left just like we heard before
Take the turn go the ride
Unlike before, this happens everytime
Locate the sound ...from the star
Get to work gonna take this thing apart
(chorus)

The transmission begins
The crowd silent grins
The transmission begins
The crowd silent grins

Lights fade lost sound
Easy ride... drive into the ground
1,000 plays behind the wheel
Turning slow gonna make the final deal
Roll the dice, lost the round
Through my head they'll never understand
As they lay engine dies
Time still as they come in from the sky

(chorus)
Quick turn away...i see them again
No explain the sound...must be the end
Looks like hell on earth..ain't no figurine
A clumsy ride is all....went by unseen
Quick turn away...i see them again
No explain the sound...must be the end

Behind the wheel..or so i'm told
Your turn... realizin what's instore
Hardly know..under the lift
Seems like forever.. since i heard one like this!

    This song is about a sweet-assed ride from the 60's or 70's, participating in a race. Just about every Fu song has some correlation with old muscle cars.. this is my favorite on "The Action is Go". The guitars are nice and fuzzy, a la Black Sabbath. It's a very good CD for road trips, especially if you've got a fat sack of that sticky shit.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
