"Sucker and Dry" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Steve Mark Pedersen, Clint Frederick Schnase and Ted James Stevens....
Everything is alright and awful
Get yourself another
We'll stay up all night
And toast to friends we never had
Stranger angels have swung around this table
But they disappear
So how did we end up here?

I might be another night
Keep the couch pulled out leave a key inside the mailbox
I might be a parasite
If you feel sucked dry then I grabbed too tight
If you feel sucked dry then I grabbed too tight
If I ever let go
You'd stroke my disease

take some time to think it over, slower
You're only getting older
Take all day
Let your rationale rash away
Meanwhile, ill stay, imprisoned by your mistakes
Persistence - its the anchor that will drown me

I might be another night
Keep the couch pulled out leave a key inside the mailbox
I might be a parasite
Sucker and dry with a kiss goodnight
Sucker and dry with a kiss goodnight
If I ever let go
They'll suffocate me

they will suffocate me

    General CommentGreat song. I'm thinking maybe it's about being used to the same things and the same lover. Trying to get something more than there is and knowing nothing was there in the first place, but still hoping for something bigger, some greater cause, meaning, or love.

    General CommentYes, I agree. That's what I thought the first time I heard it. IT IS SUCH A GREAT SONG. Maybe my favorite on the Difference Between House and Homes.

    General Commenti know that this song is about lovers and all (i really do think that's what its about) but, i was just listening to it, and it reminds me a lot of what my life is like living with an alcohlic mother. especially the lines, "meanwhile, I'll stay imprisoned by your mistakes. persistance is the anchor that'll drown me."

    peace
