Suspended In Gaffa Lyrics
What it's about: Seeing something you really want (God in this case), then not being able to see or experience it ever again unless you work very hard. (It's a thematic first cousin to Sat In Your Lap, with a more religious bent.)
Running time: 3:50
Dreamtime (Instrumental) run time: 5:20
The B-side title refers to Dreamtime, a period in Aboriginal folklore when man could change shape into any animal. It's one of Kate's more elusive tracks -- only appearing on a small handful of 7" vinyls. (See Non-LP/CD page for additional info.)
The cover photo (depicting Bess and Harry Houdini), also appears on The Dreaming LP/CD.
