"Casual Affair" as written by Jeff Russo, Emerson Hart, Kevin Shepard and Dan Rothchild....
So you give it all
In the world today
You say it's all about the passion
And the wars you wage
I'm not sayin'
I'm one for violence
But it keeps me hangin' on
It's a casual affair
When everybody loves you
Oh they'll pay top dollar
Make you wear the dog collar
When everybody loves you
I said I'm not afraid of change
I'm not afraid to lose
They say it's all about the sacrifice
And the weapons you choose
Like I said I'm not one for violence
But it keeps me hangin' on
It's a casual affair
When everybody loves you
Oh they'll pay top dollar
Make you wear the dog collar
When everybody loves you
It's a casual affair
When everybody loves you
Oh they'll pay top dollar
Make you wear the dog collar
When everybody loves you
It's a casual affair
When everybody loves you
Oh they'll pay top dollar
When everybody loves you
It's a casual affair
It's a casual affair

    General CommentTonic is one of my favorite bands, and this is one of my favorite songs by them. They lyrics are not only great, but the way it's sung sounds so awesome.

    General CommentAs a third party, I sit back and watch that person that everybody loves. I grip to violent thoughts to keep my jealousy under control. I know that its all no use. Its just a casual affair.

    General CommentWow, I always wrote off Tonic as a one-hit wonder band...

    But I just picked up Lemon Parade in a clearance bin, and it is amazing...

    This has to be the best song on the album, maybe along with "Open Up Your Eyes"...

    I see the song as somebody (world leader; iconic figure) who is loved by all, not because of his personality, but for his fame...

    The protagonist disgusts this figure, and is not afraid to change even if it means turning others against him...

    Such an amazing song...I can't believe that I thought Tonic sucked a couple of days ago...

    General CommentI'm thinking this song is about being somebody's bitch-letting them control you and not even
    really realizing it.
