Song Description

Has a cinematic feel befitting the subject matter, with soundtrack-type instruments and war movie sound FX at the end. Humorous satirical song about the appeal of blockbuster action films. From Worldview's "Schoolboy Errors" album. Written, performed and recorded by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

Well the box office returns
They would all seem to confirm
That we want action
We demand action
There's a world outside your door
But you push past it towards
The scene of the action
The cinema-ttraction
Where the blockbuster release
Gives us some sort of release
So we want action
A piece of the action

And it's only make believe
But they know how to make me believe

Blame the hateful desire
Of the caveman inside us
Cos he wants action
He demands action
And the thrills and the spilling
Of blood will fulfil him
On screens of action
Primitive action

And it's only make believe
But they know how to make me believe
Yeah it's only make believe

On celluloid
They sell us all
Reflections of
Our netherworld
They're conjuring
What's better left down there
A tolerance
For violence
That always has no consequence
I've seen it all and never left my chair

No these dreams of danger and doom
Can be beamed into your front room
Yeah we got action
On demand action
But you don't want it your backyard
No that's obviously going too far
To feel yourself trapped in
The thick of the action

Cos it's only make believe
And you don't want to face it for real
But they know we'll pay to see
All the blows that we'd hate to receive
