a circus noose
another month and the golden goose
that I'll be squeezing forever
oh Suzanne
it's been so long since we shared the air

I need the carpet to move
hold out my hands
hold up the walls for you
they're rented, but perfect
to fill with sores
I should know better than that

I'm running much smoother now
I bought new bones and bigger feet
the biggest won't ever be missed
Suzanne
I'm lucky just to have your name inbounds again, again

a year so pale
shimmer and spill
I don't live so well
caught by all the audits
but your audience screams so much louder than those hounds from hell

a river is building from a leak on the ceiling
but she's got a body holding the water uphill
even the lionhearted want to lay somewhere warm and still

I'm feeling much smoother now
I bought new skin and bigger gifts
the biggest almost never miss
Suzanne
I'm lucky just to have your name inbounds again

    General CommentWhen this first came up in shuffle mode in iTunes, I immediately recognized it as Cassino even though it was only the second or third time I'd heard it.

    It's amazing that they have developed such a unique yet familiar sound. That is such a cliche comment about indie bands, but I couldn't mean it any more emphatically.

    General Comment"it's been so long since we shared the air"
    this line reminds me and sums up perfectly of an off again - on again relationship especially my own where even when we go through long breaks of not being together you know it's not over and it you will eventually be together i again and when you do you remember how you longed for it

    --i think this song is basicly the saddness and dullness you feel after somg type of relationship until you get back with that person how much more complete you feel with that person
