"Casual" as written by Michael Chaim Bloch, Kristina Lieberson, Jennifer Turner, Peter Hale and Luke Temple Breneman....
It's casual
Not heartbreaking
So casual
Not mind shaking

She waited for a moment
It came and went instead
It left her stomach first
and then her empty head

It's casual
Not heartbreaking
So casual
Not mind shaking

It's nothing for a monster
They rolled in it for fun
The docks they dragged it in
A bloody mess for everyone

It's casual
Not heartbreaking
So casual
Not mind shaking

It's four in the morning
The darkest room I love
Four in the morning
No TV shows

It's casual
Not heartbreaking
So casual
Not mind shaking

    My InterpretationAt first I thought this song was about a relationship in which one of them simply didn't take it seriously....but then after hearing it again I think it is about abortion, how a mother can so easily take the life of their child, how it can all be done so "casually" The thumping beat even kind of sounds like a heart beat to me that slows down at the end.. Am I just taking these lyrics too literally or does anyone else think thats what this song is about too??

    General Commentamazing song, beautiful relaxed feel, almost ethereal, sublime synths and vocals, but underpinned by an almost contradictorily propulsive thumping bass line. those kind of juxtapositions always seem to create "magic" in songs.

    General CommentI think @cariepace is totally right. It seemed like the band tried to imply the same meaning as you understand. Just watch their music video youtube.com/…

    My OpinionFirst off I think the song itself is casual so its probably about casual things, stuff that you do on a daily bases that isn't heartbreaking or mindshaking for me its cruisin around town listening to tunes, watching a favorite tv show, Having a party something that doesn't invilve relationship or major surgerys.
