You took off in the dead of night
But before you did, got your hair combed right, yeah
The neighborhood watch knows the score
And they're knockin' at your door, let 'em knock some more

They're sayin' you need a little protection
But followin' the leader gonna turn you off the religion

It's comin' down, the hardest cut
World wars in your mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
We live on a knife
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut

I took off in the dead of night
But before I did, got my affairs in order and my boots on
The hallelujah choir needs a score
And they're knockin' at my door, let 'em knock some more

They're sayin' I need a little direction
But followin' the leader gonna turn me off the religion

Oh, it's comin' down, the hardest cut
World wars in my mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
We live on a knife
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut

Ah, ooh

Oh, it's comin' down, the hardest cut
World wars in my mind
Long day into night, the hardest cut
Who's takin' the life?
Here it come now, here it come now
Here it is, the hardest cut

When this song was first released, I heard it on the radio. When it was over the DJ declared something to the effect of "that was awesome! Let's listen to it again right now!" and proceeded to play it twice in a row. And I enjoyed it just as much the second time around.
Got into this album over the weekend - it's great overall; for any Spoon fans out there. They have been on quite a roll the past few albums IMHO
Spoon has kicked up the subwoofer to a whole new level on this one!
I like this song! Nice branch out from their core sound / catalog
Wow! Spoon with a Fork in it...Yep. Like the Edge on this one.
love the spoon!!
Funny .. this sounds a lot like Don't Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult. Did some stuff get filed incorrectly?
The Tick approves.....
Also, 2022-02-22 was a twosday... 
Instant 10!
New Spoon! Cool!
Shockingly, I heard this this morning on my way to work on the Door County radio station I occasionally listen too.
just noticed Spoon has been active since 1993!
almost 30 years
I'm with y'all: I dig em

Spoon is one of my favorite active bands still putting out music. The first I have heard this song and look forward to (hopefully) taking my 7 --> 8 or 9 on subsequent listens. 


Exactly the same for me, 3rd listening now and going 7 to 8 now.
LLRP!!
Bill, I really love how you stitch the language of these songs into what is happening in the world, perfectly blend the outgoing keys with the next song and give nods to influences with follow ups of the original sound. You are a mix artist!
wow- an 8 for me on first hearing...
     


I´m hoping Bill will play this next Tuesday on its release date...

First time I've heard this. These guys are really evolving. I like it.
YEAH, BABY! Endlessly digging SPOON! Thanks, RP! As usual, another ripping jam with utterly unique delivery, impeccable production and sound. Love it! Can't wait to hear whatever's next!
Excellent!
Good tune!
