Dear Master Suzuki, I am writing you today. You say my thoughts are paper tigers and I shouldn't be afraid. But these tigers prowl my memories and they stalk me in my sleep. Tell me, have you ever mourned a love in vain? Or is that the tiger that you tame when you can face him, unafraid?

'Cause everybody just wants to feel some love from someone, but love can leave you. And everybody just wants to feel freedom, where it comes from, it's from inside you.

At the park Master Suzuki sits on a bench at the zoo near a cage. And there he reads my letter beneath the lion's gaze. He wonders why the lion's pacing when he's never seen the sky. And so he writes me this reply, "oh, restless are we all until true freedom is realizied."

Help me please. Memories. Set me free. "Then take my lead"

    General CommentI saw Jupiter Sunrise at Swayze's in Atlanta this past November, and I have to say that I have never been swept away by a bands music like this. Master Suzuki was played there on request and I am so grateful to have heard it. It didn't mean much to me at the time, but as I listened to the CD, it matched exactly a conversation I was having with a friend about finding yourself, as well as many contemplations on future love interests, and stuggles to adjust and how life has so many different ways of laying itself out. It was kind of quaint how we seemed to fit the characters. In the end we both wound up listening to it, and its symbolism and insightfulness on our continuing jouney through life's wants and needs.

    "Oh, restless are we all until true freedom is realizied." ... "Where it comes from, it's from inside you."

    They are comming back on the 29th of January and I cannot wait to hear them play again.
