For the first time in my life
I let myself be held, yeah, like a big old baby
And I surrender, mmm, to your charity

I let the jets fly
Not wishing for their destruction
Orange and black
In a perfect blue sky

I lay back in the tall grass
I let the ants cover me

For the first time in my life
I am moving away
Moving away
Moving away
From within the reach of me
All the while being held like a, like a, like a big old

I've been playing this album fairly often since it came out, and I admire how they have evolved while still ROCKING OUT in quintessentially quirky Spoon style!
Just picked up this album after hearing and liking a couple tracks here.  Enjoying it so far, but I typically like everything Spoon puts out.
I'll be the dissenting minority vote...have heard two tracks off of this new release here on RP and neither was special or particularly interesting...deep yellows verging on oranges for me...
Spoon keeps churning out great stuff. This is my favorite album of the past 4 months or so- it's good to hear them rock again.
Great album overall
Makes me think of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac.  Excellent stuff.

Sure is - and I prefer Bill Callahan's voice to this version...

Good spot.  This is a good version, though, I think...  Much more dynamic than the original.
