Ahh, thanks so much for the backup.  Ben trying on magicalarmchair for a while but didn't want to keep flooding the server.

Not gonna lie. Kind of disappointed. Hoping this is one of the weaker songs on the album. I'll listen to it more and hope it grows on me.

Added an "official" Suburbs link to the list - should be stable! :)

The first thing that jumped out at me about this track was how much Kweller I can hear in the track! The rolling piano backing that plays like a jazzed-up Jesusland, and Ben's rambling, slightly disjointed vocal delivery that's a bit of a departure from his normal unified words/piano style.

I guess if I had any criticism, it'd be that this track doesn't showcase the other two very much. I mean, the bass playing is pretty special, but the hardcore crunchy solos are a little subdued under the rolling piano. But this is more of a characteristic of the track's ebb & flow than anything wrong. Naturally the whole range can't be crammed into a single track without sacrificing something, so I look forward to hearing more from the boys. Roll on Autumn!

This is great! Feels like Ben Folds Five channeling Mumford & Sons and a little Tom Petty.  There's a great raw sound and such a high energy.  It sounds inspired.  Of course, just like cocaine, the first hit is free... I can't wait for the rest!

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.

Agreed, though I do love the harmonies! Something about Darren and Sledge...

The song has grown on me, and I'm really diggin' it (aside from the vocals).  The only thing that really just irks me is that "ok" is the thing that's focused on in the big parts of the song.  Kinda' feels anti-climatic.

But, eh.

The only part I'm unsure about is the ending, but this should be pretty accurate now.

LYRICS:

You might put your love and trust on the line.
It's risky. People love to tear that down. Let 'em try.
Do it anyway.
Risk it anyway.

And if you're paralyzed by a voice in your head,
It's the standing still that should be scaring you instead.
Go on and do it anyway.
Do it anyway.

There will be times you might leave before you look.
There'll be times you like the cover, and that's precisely why you love the book
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.

Tell me what I said I would never do
Tell me what I said I would never say.
Read me off the list of things that I used to not like but now I think are okay.

Sometimes it's not subjective wrong and right.
Deep down you know it's downright wrong, but you're invincible tonight,
So you do it anyway.
It's done. you did it.

Despite your grand attempts, the chips are set to fall,
And all the stories you might weave cannot negotiate them all.
Do it anyway.
Be honest anyway.

So, tell me what I said I would never do.
Tell me what I said I would never say.
Read me off the list of the things that I used to not like but now I think are okay.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah...
Woah woah woah woah...

It's going to be so very hard to say
And watch the trust and joy all drain from her innocent face,
But you must do it anyway.
It sucks, but do it anyway.

Call it surrender, but you know that that's a joke,
And the punchline is you were actually never actually never in control,
But still, surrender anyway.

Tell me what you said you'd never do.
Tell me what you said you'd never say.
Read me of that list of things cause I used to not like you. Now I think you're okay.

Yeah...
Woah woah woah woah...

Everybody knows you just gotta do it anyway.

Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Don't do nothing to avoid some punishing (?).
You won't do nothing. You won't feel nothing.
You gotta do it anyway.

(Do it anyway.)

Do it anyway.
