"Champagne" as written by and Kenny/mc Dougald Gorelick....
All I can taste is champagne
When it hits the brain like
Spinning around and around
I can't get up without your help
I'm falling down

All I can taste is champagne
Another day down the drain
Sleeping around and around
I can't wake up without your help
It's over now

You want it
You need it
You can't explain
You fight it
You feed it
I can't live without you
I'm moving on without you

Love is like Novocaine
And it leaves a little stain
The beauty in all this pain is
I can't get away from you
So bowl me down and don't make a sound

You want it
You need it
You can't explain
You fight it
You feed it
I can't live without you
I'm moving on without you

All I can taste is champagne
Dancing away down my veins
Spinning around and around
I can't get up without your help
I'm on the ground

Somebody help me
I'm losing everything when I'm without you
Doing it without you

All I can taste is champagne
Another day down the drain
All I can taste is champagne x 2

    General CommentI think this song is about depending on someone so much that you can't live without them. When you are with this person, you are not your single self anymore, you are not complete. You need this person to be complete otherwise you are nothing- you can't function, you can't exist.

    General Commentyup :)
    it's just about growing so close to someone it feels almost as though they've become a part of you. They're an addiction, you can't live a day without them and when they're gone you feel dead and anmost incomplete.

    General CommentTim has said in several interviews that the song was actually written about Ben. So I assume it has to do with Ben's battle with his alcohol addiction and eventually his leaving the band.

    General CommentI agree with TofuKillah repeating "spinning round and around" like the effects of alcohol on your visual perception. "I can’t get up without your help
    I’m falling down" so drunk Ihe can't stand on his own. "You can beat it, You can and I can’t live without you
    I’m moving on without you" eventual leaving the band. Great song.

    General Comment"Sleeping around and round"

    i think this song means this person really loves someone but he keeps messing around and sleeping with other girls but he knows that he really wants to be with this one girl and he always wants to be there to wake him up but he keeps messing things up with her by sleeping with other people

    General CommentI used to live in a house in North Hollywood, CA. It had a back room void of sunlight all hours of the day. It was a great place to write songs. If it were hot outside, the room would be cool. If it was cold out, the room had a heater vent in it so it would be the first to get warm. (Side note: Marko lived in this room on and off for about six months). Right around this time we were dealing with the internal politics of our band and confronting all our own issues, while starting to work on our new record. I was feeling trapped by the last year of my life and disappointed by the situation and wanted to write a song about my frustrations. "Champagne" is a song that switches between first/ third person perspectives of a relationship between someone with an addiction (It's meaning is pretty obvious and literal). I called Marko and sang it to him over the phone and later wrote the chorus in the shower in the middle of a brainstorm. Musically it is really satisfying. It reminds me of The Cars on steroids. It was the last song to be finished in the studio. My friend Mark Trombino mixed "Champagne" (the day Marko got married) and I think Mark added a harder element to the song that we didn't think existed.

    (From sugarcult.com)

    This song is about Ben =)
    If anyone wants to keep up with Ben, he's currently doing the whole 'solo project' thing under the name Ben Forrest Davis. You can find his songs at:

    benforrestdavis.com
    myspace.com/…

    Definitely worth a listen - and he comments back!
