Drink deep, it's just a taste, and it might not come this way again,
I believe in moments, transparent moment, moments in grace when you've got to stake your faith

(but why do I confine, when all I want is release?)

It moves inside you, it stays outside you,
and its not something that I could prove,
or could chose, to be moved.
Yes its a promise, and its a threat,
and its not something that I'll let you for get,
not just yet, not just yet

(but why do I chase when all I want is near?)

If its not the rule then its always the case,
good intentions get fractured, good intentions get replaced,
so close to reach but so hard to hold,
the only chance you get is past your control, it's so hard, it's so hard.

Drink deep, its just a taste and it might not come this way again,
time to surrender, sweet surrender of all things in time, all things one place, one place.

    I'm surprised by the lack of comments on this one. I thought it was their most beloved song.

    General CommentSeems to be saying to enjoy the moment, enjoy what you have while you have it. In particular the lines "Why do I chase when all I want is near?" and "Drink deep, it's just a taste and it might not come this way again." While Fugazi is one of my favorites, I didn't get to hear Rites of Spring until I got the 20 Years of Dischord box set and this was the Rites of Spring song that was on it. Great tune. I like that intro, and then how everything else comes crashing in and it sort of feels like the song can't contain the energy. I like Guy's vocal delivery along with the background chants. It all adds up to an epic of a song.
