"Blood & Wine" as written by and Dustin Michael Kensrue....
I've been with Sally and I've been with Sue
I've been with Cindy and her sister too
Now I'm tryin' to settle down
Start a family with that cute little Kim
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine tastes too thin

I've got a needle, don't be alarmed
It shoots streams of lovely things into my arm
Well, I'd sell my own mother for that sweet heroin
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine seems too thin

Sometimes the white coats they hide black hearts
We've learned to sugar coat the same black guards
Well, I turn lead into gold, I'll cure original sin
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine seems too thin

Oh, well I walked in the bank and I pulled out my gun
You should've seen those people scream and run
I used to make an honest buck, how can I go back to that again?
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine seems too thin
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine seems too thin
Oh, now that I've tasted blood, now this wine seems too thin

    General Commenti think you got the meaning wrong, lolz
    this song really isnt about someone getting closer to god as much as its about someone giving in more and more into the flesh, which is basically the opposite direction

    as far as deducing the lyrics ( which are wrong on here by the way) is musically and sonically build a progression which i believe is intentional to show the deeper levels of depravity this person is going through: they start off sleeping around, then they given into substance abuse, then it goes into a reckless regard for peoples lives, with the bank robbery at the end.

    also 'blood' is being used in a context that is evil , in that it is being taken or selfishly kinda infused into the person metaphorically through them taking it from various sources, almost like a drug, the feeling from these 'bloody actions' is justification enough for the process, and basically once you get on bigger 'high' of drugs or deeper evils, its very hard to go back to the innocense or 'wine' that you originally possessed

    this song is very similar to 'blood clots and black holes' from AitA by Thrice also, about the kind of false idol of drugs or highs ideology that lots of people especially 'victimized' americans give into

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites from the new album, truy amazing both lyrically and musically. A bluesy folk song about how someone's life is changing as they have found God. The theme is perfect, Now that I've tasted Blood this wine is too thin, meaning once he has found God (blood - communion, last supper) sins and other pleasures from life don't mean anything to them anymore and all they want is to serve God.

    General CommentI wasn't sure at first, but I think I agree with Laidbackdude.

    I think "Blood" is referring to the actions of the flesh in this song, and "wine" being the blood of Christ and how it will be hard to overcome the temptations, even with Christ, now that you have tasted blood.

    If you are born again, you can probably relate. Christ does give you clean slate, but your mind doesn't forget all that you have done or all that you have "tasted."

    General CommentI thought Johnny Cash right away. It's weird that I like it. It's mesmerizing, though.
