When you love me it's neon
It's Las Vegas
I tripped a fuse on your breaker heart
And it all went dark

There's things I can never tell you now
Like how far down this
Craving you goes
I thought you were all in
I should've known

You're slipping through my fingers again
Like days in this casino
I'm losing you in slow motion
Show's over but I won't go home

Put it all on my first bet
Snake eyes
For a second I forget that
The only one who cares is the dealer
Sucking down Marlboro Lights

I know there's eyes all over the place
But I still know the codes
You had that cashing out look on your face and
I should've known

Oh you loved me like a million bucks
Now I'm the fool putting dollars in slots
And I can't stop you


released September 7, 2016

Snake Eyes wound its way through multiple studios with a lot of peoples' help to get it here. I'd like to thank Matt Pond & Chris Hansen for believing in this song right off the bat. Thank you to Jason Hradil for the tough love and good advice (I needed it) and to Lizzie Quinlan for her thoughts on early lyric drafts. We also wouldn't be here without Dave Mombert at PonderRosa, Matt Poirier & Brian McTear at Miner Street, and Kyle Pulley, Joe Reinhart & Shane Woods at Headroom. Thank you! - Caroline
