"Sugar in the Sacrament" as written by and Geoffrey/keeley Rickly....
What have you done?
You followed footsteps in the dark,
And found your faith left out behind your father's car.

You said "there's no one watching over me or over you, it's always out of reach"
I'm still sinking into:

Oh my God, where are we now?
Fractured lives dissolving
Like sugar in the sacrament.

If it was just one night, then we would be released.
Tie these lies between our teeth
Keep tearing open bodies, "let it bleed" tonight.

Where have you gone?
Off with the friends you couldn't keep?
Your mother's arms fill up with all the empty needs.

So the saints line up to bring her in
Comfort her and it's always comforting when they start to sing the same old:

"holy, holy, lift up your dress.
Feel your body dissolving
Like sugar in the sacrament"

"if it was just one night, then you could be redeemed.
Tie these sins between your teeth,
Make hollow promises we'll never keep tonight"

This is all we've ever known of God.
Fight with me. let me touch you now.

    General CommentYes well this guy did a very piss poor job of doing this song, but I hope he fixes it. I just wanted to ask if anyone else gets a major Dying In New Brunswick vibe from this song. Just gives me chills at the end.

    General CommentI saw Thursday last night and they played this song and it's SUCH an emotional live song. Especially the last few lines, "this is all we've ever known of God, fight with me, let me touch you now." Geoff was just sosososo into it and looked like he was pouring his whole heart into this song.

    General Commenthere's the correct lyrics from the booklet, and this is one of my favorite songs on the album, its amazing!

    what have you done?
    you followed footsteps in the dark
    and found your faith
    left out behind your father's car

    you said, "there's no one watching over me or ever you, it's always out of reach..."
    I'm sinking still right into

    oh my god where are we now?
    fractucred lives dissolving
    like sugar in the sacrament

    if it was just one night
    then we would be released
    tie these lies between our teeth
    keep tearing open bodies
    'let it bleed'
    tonight

    'holy holy, lift up your dress
    feel your body dissolving
    like sugar in the sacrament

    "if it was just one night
    they you could be redeemed
    tie these sins between your teeth
    make hollow promises we'll never keep
    tonight"

    this is all we've ever known of God
    fight with me let me touch you now

    General Commentso anyway, I think this song is questioning religion and faith as a whole, and possibly asking the age old question "if there's a God, why do good people suffer?"

    anyway whatever it means, its a really beautiful song.
