"All The Negatives Have Been Destroyed" as written by and John Britt Daniel....
I had a feeling from the start of it
I had a joke on everyone
I had a joke who was in everyone
And if you listen up just once you know
If you want, you can never leave and
If you want, you can let her go
I had a feeling from the start of it you could say so, motherfucker
You could say so, motherfucker
And then I took it all around, I took her back and I said to myself
If you want, you can never leave and
If you want, you can let her go
All the negatives have been destroyed, and they said
All the negatives have been destroyed-oh yeah
I had a feeling from the start of it, you could let me go if you wanted
to
But I haven't seen that you wanted to
So I took it all around, I took it back and I said to myself
If you want (you want) you can never leave and
If you want (you want) you can let her go
All the negatives have been destroyed, and they said
All the negatives have been destroyed-oh yeah

    General CommentHa ha! Spoon and the F word! It's genius! I love this song. Telephono is a grand album. Punk roots all the way.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about taking up or parting ways with a woman and I like how "All the negatives have been destroyed" has a double meaning to go along with both. The negatives being destroyed with, "If you want, you can never leave" is the negativity he feels toward the relationship and the negatives being destroyed with "If you want, you can let her go" is photo negatives being destroyed which implies the loss of memory and tangible artifacts of the relationship.

    However, "if you want, you can never leave and if you want, you can let her go" is a pretty ambivalent way to approach a relationship. I agree with danse, very catchy tune.
