I was reminded every measure
Of riding trade winds
Buried treasure
I got on fine with modern living
But must I be such a citizen

And the world still so wild called to me
I was lost, I'd been kept on my knees

Trippers and askers
They surrounded me
All them describing
How they'd like me
All them wanting
Something special
Bring em roses
Sing them blues

And the world still so wild called to me
I'd been caught, I was lost on my knees

I looked full over all the lies and
Appealing to me advertising
And I was living tight every night

And the world still so wild called to me
I was lost I'd been kept on my knees
And the world still so wild called to me

I had to give this a 10 because the songs before were so bad. Never have said this before.
Daaaaaamn, this is so good. Spoon just keeps getting better! 
Thanks RP for making me go listen to spoon after many years of keeping them in the backlog of my music collection.
What a great album, those dirty guitars... Go listen to the whole thing please
I just can't get enough of their clanging guitars, their angsty vocals, their driving rhythms, and their endlessly clever lyrics!
My favourite track off this album. Driving beat, perfect build to the guitar solo, and over while you still want more. Also, doesn't hurt that it's the first song my 3 year old starting singing along to in the car.

You took me by the hand
Made me a maaaan
This is a great song on a great album by a great band, but I'll be damned if it doesn't remind me of that song from the Office that goes "that one NIGHT, you made eeeeverything alriiiight"
Solid.  No more, no less.
Magnificent album.  Gets the award from this Office for favourite of this year so far.  Last few years, in fact.  Thanks RP.

Such a great album! This cut is excellent. 

would like to read the lyrics before rating...

Seriously, I didn't think they could do better than Hot Thoughts. No way they could top that I thought. I was wrong. I got this album and must have listened to it no less than a dozen times in a row before forcing myself to listen to something else. Do yourselves a favor and go pick it up! It's just that good. 
I thought Spoon had topped out with "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga," but they have continued to get better and better. 


Such a great album! This cut is excellent.
