safe to assume this is just a teaser of the full song? im hoping?

It's unmastered.

The yelling feels very very Kweller, which I like. I don't like that Ben's mostly speaking instead of singing, but I do enjoy the lyrics a whole lot.

And the actual music just f*cking rocks. I love what Jared and Sam did for the last two albums, but there's something very much distinct about this. And that f*cking bass, holy shit.

These are pretty much my exact thoughts.

And that could be the final mix for all we know.

On the earlier posted lyrics, the line that goes "There will be times you might leave before you look.", should be "There will be times you might leap before you look".  Also on the outro where he's sort of scatting around the "Do It Anyway", he says:

'Cause you don't do nothin' to avoid slow punishment.
You won't do nothin', you won't feel nothin'.
Gotta do it, do it, do it anyway

I like the song more as I've heard it over the course of a few days.  The energy is definitely the best and most refreshing part.  Also, hearing Robert on bass again is just glorious.  His perspective has been totally missed on Ben's solo material.  I agree with thoughts on the vocal not really blowing people away.  My hope is that this will be the "Sports & Wine" of the new record.  As in, it's a decent to good track in the context of the record but is never the main reason I feel like putting it on.

Sledge is great, but damn did I love the bass on WtN. So much.

I made my mind up before I read what everyone else thought. I like it. Busy. Five like. Raw (in a good way).

Other thoughts people?

Does anyone know what show it was when Ben improvised "Do It Anyway" and/or have a recording of the improv that led to the current song?

Fantastic, love this! All the energy, attitude and depth I didn't even realise I was missing. I love Ben solo, but the Five just has, well, something.  :D

I'm glad to hear it back.

I love the Pledge idea too, here's hoping it's a huge success for the boys.
